Opinion here. Judge Erdmann writes for a unanimous court:

Military Rule of Evidence (M.R.E.) 901(a) provides that “[t]he requirement of authentication or identification as a condition precedent to admissibility is satisfied by evidence sufficient to support a finding that the matter in question is what its proponent claims.” We granted review in this case to determine whether the military judge abused her discretion when she overruled a defense authentication objection and admitted two Government exhibits which were based on computerized data. We hold that the military judge did not abuse her discretion and affirm the decision of the CCA.”
