“The government interceded, stole the technology and attempted to use this in classified programs,” says Jim O’Keefe, the president of the small New Jersey technology company Demodulation. He has filed a $50 million lawsuit against the U.S. government, accusing it of taking his firm’s research.”
The Jim O’Keefe aforementioned is my father. Many of you know he is an engineer. His company, “Demodulation,” created an innovative technology; a fiber smaller than the diameter of a human hair that can be easily hidden in a variety of products. When this fiber is stimulated remotely by a low energy source it creates an electronic signature that can be identified.
But then the government stepped in.
The federal government pirated my father’s patents, hid behind the veil of national security, and used taxpayer money to steal his trade secrets and then compete with the private sector.
