In brief: Applied DNA Sciences wins federal military grant

Missile batteryApplied DNA Sciences (APDN) has been awarded a $150,000 grant by the US federal government to develop its anti-counterfeiting technology for military electronics.

The award - given by the US Missile Defense Agency (MDA) - will focus on placing markings or coatings onto original parts at the time of manufacture, to enable customers at later stages in the supply chain to confirm that the component is authentic.

"The project expands on, but is separate from the research and testing supported by the Defense Logistics Agency, a project which prepared the platform now required by DLA for all items in a class of electronics provided by contractors to the agency," said APDN in a statement.
