    A federal jury has found Seongchan “Steven” Yun (32, Redondo Beach, CA) guilty of providing a false document to a federal agency. Yun faces a maximum penalty of 10 years in federal prison. His sentencing hearing is scheduled for March 2, 2020. According to evidence presented at trial, Yun was an employee at CBOL Corporation, a company that provided parts and materials to the aerospace industry, including NASA. In the summer of 2014, Yun handled a contract that required CBOL to provide stainless steel tubing to carry hypergolic fuel (rocket fuel) for use in support of NASA’s Space Launch System/Orion project at Kennedy Space Center. The contract required that the steel tubing originate from the United States. During the procurement, Yun received steel tubing originating from China. Instead of replacing the tubing with materials from the United States, Yun covered up the foreign origin of the parts on documentation that accompanied the parts. He then caused the steel tubing to be shipped to the Kennedy Space Center, and later prepared a certification falsely certifying that the steel tubing conformed to all of NASA’s requirements. The steel tubing ultimately failed materials testing conducted by NASA regarding its suitability for use in NASA’s fueling programs.

Mr Yun''s sentencing hearing is scheduled for March 2, 2020. He was indicted on March 13, 2019.

The fraud was uncovered when NASA employees became suspicious after the steel tubing failed suitability testing. Yun initially tried to claim that he did not know the material had to be produced domestically. However, later he confessed to knowing about the requirements for tubing made inside the United States. 钣金展-激光展-2020年第二十一届广州国际激光设备及钣金工业展 -2020 China(Guangzhou) Int’l Laser Equipment and Sheet Metal Industry Exhibition -Sheet metal exhibition, Sheet metal expo, 2020 Sheet metal exhibition, 2020 Sheet metal expo, China Sheet metal exhibition, China Sheet metal expo, Laser Equipment exhibition, Laser Equipment expo, 2020 Laser Equipment exhibition, 2020 Laser Equipment  expo, Laser exhibition, Laser expo
