A 62-year-old former Northrop Grumman engineer, Noshir S. Gowadia of Maui, Hawaii, could face a death sentence for designing a “low observable cruise missile exhaust system nozzle” for the People’s Republic of China (PRC), U.S. Justice Department officials said Nov. 9, following an arraignment in which bail was denied and a July 10 trial date was set.
Gowadia entered a not guilty plea the same day before federal magistrate Judge Kevin Chang in Honolulu.
Kenneth Sorenson, the assistant U.S. attorney prosecuting Gowadia, said it represented “the largest espionage-based case that we’ve done in this district.”
