Naresh Menon Ph.D. Founder: Covisus Inc.
Establishing the provenance of a microchip in critical DOD systems has been mandated by Congress since 2012. While a number of marking technologies have been developed, the microelectronics industry has not accepted these solutions because of many fundamental reasons, viz., size of components, added cost and alteration of IP. While industry has found work arounds, there still remains a hidden threat of counterfeits and clones. Covisus has developed a novel tagless tracking technology (vTag) based on a patented machine vision technique. We will discuss case studies and show that full traceability without additive markings is not only possible but when implemented, can significantly improve the bottomline.
As the founder of Covius, Naresh has over 30 years of industrial Research, Development and Product launch experience. He is passionate about addressing the crisis caused by counterfeit and substandard products that are impacting consumer confidence in E-commerce, disrupting our military supply chain and endangering patients. Naresh brings a unique approach to industrial problems that combines bioinspired multidisciplinary science with the practical operational needs of manufacturing. This has resulted in disruptive solutions that have been deployed by Government and Fortune 100 companies in manufacturing and distribution. He received his PhD in Physics from Purdue University with an emphasis in sensor fabrication, instrumentation and novel data analytic methods that were applied at multiple national and international laboratories towards fundamental physics discoveries. His early career was spent at Corning Incorporated and Northrop Grumman Mission Systems where he was groomed for leadership positions in multiple businesses. Covisus was spun-out in 2015 from ChromoLogic LLC (www.chromologic.com); an innovation center that focuses on developing deep-tech solutions that save lives and make the world secure.
