IBM smartphone which self-destruct in five seconds

IBM has won a contract worth $ 3 million to develop sensors and smartphones capable of self-destruct.

Soon, smartphones or radios equipped with self-destruct functions will no longer be reserved for spy movies . Indeed, the contract signed by IBM with the U.S. Army includes the development of a self-destruct on command for electronic devices function. The army wants a solution to avoid military mobile devices and critical data that may optionally contain from falling into the hands of the enemy. On 31 January , in its part " Vanishing Programmable Resources " ( VAPR ) program , DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) , ie the research agency of the U.S. Army, signed a $ 3.4 million with IBM. " It is possible to make sophisticated electronic devices at low cost and electronic components are becoming more ubiquitous on the battlefield ," says DARPA on its website . "However, it is almost impossible to track and retrieve all devices unintentionally left on the ground, or to ensure that no unauthorized use or impair the intellectual property contained in these materials to take advantage of any technological advantage .

Activation of self-destruction by radio-frequency

At this moment, neither DARPA nor IBM have responded to requests for information addressed to them our Computerworld. On its website, the DARPA simply states that it seeks to change some devices, including sensors, radios or telephones, identical to those found in commerce, to add functions to destruct distance . IBM was responsible for developing materials, components and manufacturing processes that allow the retirement of use of these materials. According to DARPA, the manufacturer is working on a "glass substrate tense" destructible. One or more triggers may be activated by radio frequency located at different places of the apparatus. The trigger can also be disabled by radio-frequency.

If IBM no longer manufactures smartphones, the semiconductor division of the firm always offers tours for designing mobile devices.

The army wants to use this self-destruct technology in sensors used to gather data in the environment or in bio-sensors. "This ability to self-destruction is very important when it comes to data or devices that unauthorized use may compromise the security of the United States," an analyst at Gabriel Consulting Group Dan Olds said "If he could get his hands on the material of this type, an enemy could not only be able to extract the data, but it could also be used to bypass firewalls supposed to protect our networks and access to even more data.
