Add the following section to Chapter 3 of the SAMM.

C3.3. ANTI-TAMPER (AT) POLICY COMPLIANCE. The U.S. Government reserves the right to incorporate AT technologies and methodologies in weapons systems and components offered under the Security Assistance Program, which contain Critical Program Information (CPI). Chapter 5 Table C5.T5 provides LOA note language that is included in all LOA documents for materiel sales (not applicable to service LOAs). Prior to proposal for transfer of materiel containing CPI, the Implementing Agency will coordinate with the DoD Anti-Tamper Executive Agent (DoD ATEA) to ensure sensitive technologies or program information is defended against unlawful exploitation or loss. The DoD ATEA is located at Suite 1500, 1500 Wilson Blvd, Arlington, Virginia 22209. Implementing agencies shall certify compliance with AT requirements on the LOA transmittal memorandum forwarded to DSCA for LOA processing.

In Chapter 5, Table C5.T5. add the words shown in bold to the standard LOA note for Anti-Tamper Measures
