Bob Vermillion, Industry Expert, Suspect Counterfeit Packaging in the DoD Supply Chain
Royal Sonesta Hotel, Baltimore, Maryland
April 06, 2016
For the past several years, Bob has been an Invited Speaker for the Annual National Institute of Packaging Handling Logistics Engineers (NIPHLE) whose membership includes the DOD, DLA, DCMA, Prime Contractors, Suppliers and Distributors that provide logistics and packaging to those that protect the Warfighter.
This year, in particular, the round of questions and feedback was phenomenal. Not only are we fighting the counterfeit issue with components and parts - the "originality" of packaging is raising eyebrows. What you buy online or in a catalog may not be what you "assume" you are purchasing.
The days of "Technical Data Sheets" as evidence of compliance can be suspect especially when you are protecting sensitive parts and components with much more expensive packaging requirements and a focus upon reducing costs by the primes.
In 2015, RMV was awarded the Top USA Award for Packaging Innovation and Contributions for the Warfighter. In 2017, Bob Vermillion will again address this issue with more case studies in the upcoming NIPHLE conference. We hope you will join us.
GIDEP Conference at NASA Ames Research Center
Bob Vermillion, Invited SME Materials & Packaging
April 04, 2016
Before a packed audience of prime contractors and Federal employees from all over the USA, Bob Vermillion, Invited Speaker, provided a "hands on" briefing of the rapid growth of Electrostatic Suspect Counterfeit Materials & Packaging in the Federal Supply Chain that may affect current and future programs for NASA and the DoD.
Bob's passion to get the word out to the contracting community is not without years of speaking before interested groups from Industry to the Federal marketplace.
An increasing awareness of the dangers of not conducting "periodic verification" of materials and packaging is just as essential for the Incoming Inspection team as is the verification of components and parts by Federal agencies and the prime contracting community.
Simply stated - without physical testing of ESD materials and packaging, the traditional methods of paper documentation and reliance upon "Supplier Technical Data Sheets" can no longer be trusted.

Quite An Unprecedented Visit from SBA HQ
Maria Contreras-Sweet, SBA Administrator visits RMV Tech Group
August 27, 2014
What a scene it was at the RMV lab that day to see so many people crowd into this 1933 Spanish Colonial Revival historic landmark building nestled amongst several high tech universities and lean startups. Amidst a labyrinth of test equipment, chambers, materials and products under test, Maria Contreras Sweet and staff came for a 15 minute photo op but stayed for over an hour!

"ESD Materials: Suspect Counterfeiting & Packaging
May 08, 2008
Customer Feedback Comments for 2008 ESD Cal Poly Seminar:
"Strong Hands On Approach to ESD Effects, Methods to counter ESD effects and good interaction with Attendee's questions.
Learning from similar experiences of others is helpful." "Bob's anecdotes and "war stories" add a nice practical aspect to the discussion. The live demonstrations in addition to the real-world examples further enhances the practical application nature of the seminar content."
Lots of exposure to new test equipment and how it is used."
"Was very informative and easy to understand."
"I think it made you realize how much you don't know about ESD?"
"It was a very good overview of ESD testing. I like that Bob doesn't go into the effects of ESD, but sticks with what we should test. I can return to work with a new list of things to look for and test."
"Very detailed and informative. Good examples of experiments. Liked the meters, test equipment and pictures of such."
"Details and demos - Info all great."
"Much more than I had hoped for. Loved all the test equipment."
"Good and useful information presented - the mixing of practical demonstrations throughout the presentation helped with the transfer of knowledge."
"There were plenty of demonstrations and practical applications. The atmosphere was interactive and conducive to learning."
"I have and will continue to recommend this seminar as one of the best ESD packaging learning experiences!"
