Boeing has its sights set beyond aircrafts. The Chicago-based company has filed documents with the FCC detailing a secure smartphone called Black that’s capable of self-destruction, or rendering itself inoperable when someone attempts to break into it.

The Boeing Black phone is manufactured as a sealed device both with epoxy around the casing and with screws, the heads of which are covered with tamper proof covering to identify attempted disassembly. Any attempt to break open the casing of the device would trigger functions that would delete the data and software contained within the device and make the device inoperable.
