Counterfeit Chinese Parts Slipping Into U.S. Military Aircraft: Report

Months after the Senate committee launched its investigation, the Pentagon said in November it was moving to protect against counterfeit parts by modifying policies and improving its internal process as well as working more closely with private companies in the industry. In March, acting undersecretary of acquisitions, Frank Kendall, issued a memo that was "designed to take initial steps to stand up an aggressive and comprehensive anti-counterfeiting program," Little said today.

Representatives for the Chinese government at its embassy in Washington, D.C., and consulate in New York, New York did not immediately respond to request for comment on this report.
