PORTLAND - Two Chinese men accused of trying to sneak sensitive technology with military applications out of the United States by posing as American businessmen have been charged with conspiracy and money laundering in a federal indictment unsealed on Tuesday.

The indictment accused the men of creating a "sophisticated scheme" involving Westernized aliases, a fake website and falsely assumed names of other businesses to conceal their true identities and nationality from the Oregon-based company that makes the technology.

The aim of the unsuccessful scheme, according to the 12-count indictment, was to purchase devices that have "dual use" commercial and military applications without obtaining the required export licenses.
