United States Sues Kaman Dayron, Inc., Under False Claims Act
The US Department of Justice filed a lawsuit under the False Claims Act against defense contractor Kaman Dayron, Inc. for allegedly substituting non-conforming parts in sophisticated ignition devices supplied in “bunker buster” bombs. The lawsuit contends that Kaman Dayron knowingly substituted non-conforming parts that might cause the ignition devices to fire prematurely, causing warhead misfires.
The case is being prosecuted under the National Procurement Fraud Initiative, which was created in 2006 to promote the early detection and prosecution of procurement fraud in government contracting for national security.
