NEW YORK (AP) - Authorities in New York say they've charged 11 members of a Russian military procurement network, a Texas-based company and others with illegally exporting high-tech microelectronics from the United States to Russian military and intelligence agencies.
A federal indictment was unsealed Wednesday in Brooklyn.
The microelectronics are subject to strict government controls. Authorities say they could have a wide range of military uses, including radar and surveillance systems, weapons guidance systems and detonation triggers.
