Counterfeit Helicopter Engine Microprocessors

United Technologies paid $1.06 million to resolve alleged False Claims Act violations involving Goodrich Pump and Engine Controls Systems, a company United Technologies indirectly owned from July 2012 through March 2013. Goodrich was a subcontractor to Rolls-Royce on a U.S. Army helicopter engine contract. The government alleged that, from 2005 to 2012, Goodrich purchased, shipped and caused counterfeit microprocessors to be integrated into engine control unit assemblies, which were then incorporated into the M-250 series engines installed in OH-58 Kiowa Warrior and A/MH-6M Mission Enhanced Little Bird aircraft. Goodrich also allegedly provided the government numerous false certifications as to the authenticity of the assemblies.
