The proposed SBIR Phase I effort initiates the development of a low-cost tamper-proof electronic bolt seal that is easy to install, and provides electronic recording and reporting without increasing the inspection time at the customs and security checkpoints. The proposed e-seal addresses the present gap in seal protecting ALL the air and maritime containers and conveyances to extend protection beyond high-value items to protecting against trafficking of contraband, weapons, and illegal aliens by inserting them in the ordinary and common goods containers. The proposed bolt-seal development and its mass volume productization are enabled by a multi-faceted innovative approach for mechanical, electronics, and system designs in conjunction with manufacturing techniques.
