Defense Contractor Arraigned On Charges She Exported Military Blueprints To India Without A License
Robert was the founder, owner, and President of One Source USA LLC, a company located at her then-residence in Mount Laurel, N.J., and contracted with the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) to supply defense hardware items and spare parts pursuant to government contracts. In September 2012, Robert opened a second defense-contracting company, Caldwell Components Inc., based at the same address in Mount Laurel.
Starting in October 2010, Robert transmitted the military drawings for these parts to India by posting the technical data to the password-protected website of a Camden County, N.J., church where she was a volunteer web administrator. This was done without the knowledge of the church staff. Robert e-mailed R.P. the username and password to the church website so that R.P. could download the files from India. Through the course of the scheme, Robert uploaded thousands of technical drawings to the church website for R.P. to download in India.
