or evaluation of test results.
DL1.1.2. Acquisition Systems Protection (ASP). The safeguarding
of defense systems anywhere in the acquisition process as defined in DOD
Directive 5000.1 (reference (a)), the
defense technologies being developed that could lead to weapon or defense

counterintelligence, and other defensive methods to deny foreign collection
efforts and prevent unauthorized disclosure to deliver to our forces
uncompromised combat effectiveness over the life expectancy of the system.
DL1.1.3. Adversary. An individual, group, organization, or

DL1.1.4. Component Intelligence (Counterintelligence) Analysis
Centers. Within this Manual, the organizations of the DoD Components

Assessments for use in program protection planning. In some DoD Components,
these organizations are labeled as intelligence organizations, while in others
they are part of counterintelligence organizations.
DL1.1.5. Compromise. The known or suspected exposure of EPITS
or classified information or material to persons who are not authorized

DL1.1.9. Delegation of Disclosure Authority Letter (DDL). A
letter required as part of the Technology Assessment/Control Plan, prepared by
the cognizant DoD Component, that provides detailed guidance regarding
releasibility of all elements of the system or technology in question. The DDL
must be approved by Under Secretary of Defense for Policy (USD(P)) before any
promise or release of sensitive technology.
DL1.1.10. Essential Program Information, Technologies, and/or Systems
EPITS. That information about the program, technologies, and/or
systems that if compromised would degrade combat effectiveness or shorten the
expected combat-effective life of the system. Access to this information could
allow someone to kill, counter or clone the acquisition system before or near
scheduled deployment or force a major design change to maintain the same level
