Last week the the Department of State announced that it had reached an "administrative agreement with Alpine Aerospace Corporation and TS Trade Tech Incorporated of New Jersey to resolve violations of the Arms Export Control Act (AECA) and the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) related to the export of significant military equipment."
According to documents published by the State Department Alpine "engaged in six exports of parts for use on a Hawk missile system, and in a separate violation, failed to obtain a DSP-83 Non-Transfer and Use Certificate for these exports. Alpine cited an existing export license on export control documents for the exports which did not, in fact, authorize the export of parts for the Hawk missile system [to South Korea]. TS Trade engaged in one export of aircraft parts and associated equipment without authorization."
