... so the "substrate" of the chips, (with the 'real' works inside the substrate, so to speak) would likely protect the memory and the memory itself would be readable? (given that it is otherwise intact)
That is my understanding, and as a data state change can only occur with an applied voltage, any potential short circuits can be ignored.

I am sure that if the initial download in France fails, the CSMU will be flown to the USA to enable Honeywell to access the substrate and interrogate the chips directly.
