Chinese Man Held for Exporting US Military Know-How

Breitbart, March 8, 2011

FBI agents Tuesday arrested a Chinese national working for a US technology company for exporting information about sensitive military know-how to China, justice officials said.

Liu Sixing, also know as Steve Liu, was arrested at his home in Deerfield, Illinois and charged with one count of exporting defense-related technical data without a license, the Justice Department said in a statement.

Liu, a Chinese national with permanent residency in the United States, worked for the New Jersey-based company from March 2009 until November 2010 as a senior engineer on a team developing precision navigation devices.


There were also images of a presentation Liu made to a technology conference which was organized by the Chinese government, the statement said.

Liu was never issued with a company laptop, and did not have the authority to access the company data outside of its New Jersey facility.
