The illegal export of U.S. technology to foreign adversaries is a significant threat to U.S. national security, and the DHS is taking steps to prevent it. However, this task is not easy as the technology is often smuggled out of the country and difficult to monitor and prevent once it reaches its destination. Once in China, the technology is further transferred to Iran where it is used for developing sophisticated drone technologies.
