Bob Vermillion, CEO/Founder of RMV Technology Group LLC, a NASA Industry partner, is the first to present and the first to publish on "Non-Compliant and Suspect Counterfeit ESD Materials in the DoD Supply Chain" for the NASA QLF, Cape Canaveral, Florida in 2010.

The use of online buys, P-Cards and reverse auction bidding combined with out-of-date Supplier Data Sheets, only exacerbates the problem for purchase of "static safe" materials that can be non-compliant or outright counterfeit upon purchase by procurement from the lowest bidder.

Even though the ultra sensitive part or component is an original, the protective material or packaging may not be. Therein lies the risk to your program and, ultimately, to your customer.

As the Industry Leading SME Expert on ESD materials and packaging, Bob Vermillion teaches Incoming Inspection Techniques as the "first line of defense" for identification, detection and avoidance in the supply chain of non-compliant and suspect counterfeit ESD materials, packaging, parts and products.
