Abstract : The Harry Diamond Laboratories continued development work on a tamper-resistant/tamper-indicating safing system for the U.S. Arms Control and Disarmament Agency. The safing system consists of a fiber optic seal and related equipment that assembles, photographs, and identifies the seals in the field. The seals are intended for field use in international safeguards and arms control applications. The report describes improvements in the fiber optic seal assemblies and in the inspection equipment. The inspection equipment includes a means for seal identification by reticle pattern projection that does not require any photographs to be taken of the seal's fingerprints. Also included are (1) the results of the preliminary environmental tests on the sealing system, and (2) detailed operating procedures for the new fiber optic seal assembly and inspection kits.
