Two-dollar Chinese counterfeit could bring down the anti-missile cost of 12 million dollars - Director of the United States Missile Defense Agency
Microsemi / Actel ProASIC3 chip is a typical cheap FPGA processor. Used in military systems and in many commercial products. The difference between the "military" version of ProASIC3 is in better resistance to radiation and temperature, they are not structurally different.



US federal officials announced that they were recalling the sale of Chinese-made surge protectors, which became a frequent cause of fires, one of which caused damage to the house in the amount of 916 thousand dollars, reports wnd.com October 7. In the US, sold about 15 million Schneider Electric line filters.

Also reported low-quality food and toys coming from China. Inspections showed that fish products imported from China were contained in wastewater, then purified using hazardous chemicals, many of which are prohibited. The US Consumer Products Safety Control Commission reported that by the end of the month 17 from 28 prohibited goods were Chinese imports.

With regard to the supply of counterfeit Chinese products to the US Department of Defense, then, according to the information of the Senate Commission, about 1800 cases were identified. It was found that US military contractors acquired many of the critical components from US companies, which, in turn, acquired them from Chinese firms, but did not test them before handing them over to the Pentagon. "China is the epicenter of world trade in counterfeits," the Senate report says.

Speaking about the dangers of these components, the director of the United States Missile Defense Agency, General Patrick O'Reilly (Patric O'Reilly), said: "We do not want the reliability of the anti-missile missile worth 12 million to depend on the fake details of the 2 dollar."

Chinese counterfeit was detected on SH-60B, AH-64 and CH-46 helicopters, C-17, C-130J, C-27J and P-8A Poseidon aircraft. In 2005, Chinese chips were found in the onboard computers of the F-15 fighter jets deployed at the Robins Air Force base in Georgia. It is estimated that at least 15% of spare parts and electronic chips that the Pentagon buys were fake.

The National Intelligence Agency and the US FBI are concerned that fake electronic details may help China gain access to secure systems within the United States. “The United States bought 59 thousand fake microchips from China for use in warships, airplanes, missiles and missile defense system, but, fortunately, they were promptly detected. But how many we have not yet discovered? ”, Wrote one of the experts. In China, there are entire factories employing up to 15 thousand people who specialize in the production of counterfeit goods.

          They say that there is, on TV the director of the aircraft factory said that we buy electronic components directly from Koreans and Chinese, this was in the context of the arrest of former citizens of the USSR and Russia for trade in US military technologies (i.e. we do not buy from the USA).

    Why fake? Is it written made in USA? China calmly and legally launches products, and where they put them there is a buyer's problem. The Americans decided to save - these are their tricks with supposedly fakes.

    Trojan horse in a modern design. They found it themselves, bought it, installed it themselves.

    And nefig was to allow companies to transfer production to China. The consequences were miscalculated. So Russia is not unique here either, not only you have Taburetkins, but you can cut bucks no worse than rubles. sad

      It seems that a couple of years there was a scandal when Chinese-made ammunition was delivered to the troops in Afghanistan ... And then there was a microcircuit whose production was officially transferred to China.
      A little more and F-35 will be delivered from China ... smile

      It's actually strange. On Apaches and Blackhawks, the electronics components are usually Taiwanese or Korean, rather than the Chinese red ones. I saw it myself. Maybe the Red Chinese somehow slipped it, I don’t know.

    Wow, only found out about it. And before, just like they wanted to save money, and the difference is in your pocket. fool

    Remember the case when a US reconnaissance aircraft was forced to land in China. Anecdote from this series, the Chinese were pleasantly surprised to open secret equipment and saw the inscription made in China.

    Finally, the Yankees were seriously "lucky" with Chinese products for the needs of the Pentagon. As a warning to Rogozin, “you wouldn’t chase pop for cheapness.” Although what are we at Amers "almost financial crisis" ... that "save" ... laughing

    It is necessary for our scientists from Zelenograd to help China better make fakes, so that they would not be discovered so simply. And experience sharing would be nice.

    China started a war. In a clever way, he began to undermine the military potential from the inside. But the only question is - is there only fake in the USA?

      Not so simple. Although of course I am worried that in our control systems are cheap Chinese chips. I hope the check will find out how they got there and who will answer for it.

    They even stamp fake children. It seems that a US citizen will be born with a characteristic cut of eyes, but in fact - a Chinese spy :))
