Four Accused of Illegal Export of DALSA Technology to China

Newswire.ca: Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) has accused four individuals in connection with the illegal export of controlled goods and technologies to China. The investigation, dubbed Project OSensor, commenced in early 2014 after the RCMP was requested to conduct a criminal investigation by Public Services and Procurement Canada – Controlled Goods Directorate and Global Affairs Canada, as a result of a written complaint having been received by them from Teledyne DALSA Inc. Waterloo. The matter involves controlled goods and technologies being shipped between Canada and China in violation of the Canadian Controlled Goods Program and related Export Laws. Police allege that the four accused involved themselves in Chinese contracts for the design and development of Controlled Goods intended for space satellite use. These contracts involved a state-owned corporation and a Chinese based company founded by two of the accused to create microelectronics destined to enhance space satellite camera technology.


  1. Only very few companies over the Word able to provide large formats multispectral TDI CCD for high resolution Earth observation...

  2. To quote Claude Rains, "I'm shocked! Shocked"!

  3. It may be a bit ironic that Dalsa has called in export regulators when it appears that Dalsa for years used Yao Yi, convicted and imprisoned for US military technology export violations, as a key man in the Chinese distribution of Dalsa’s technology.
