 The FBI is investigating a Houston business accused of illegally exporting high-tech equipment to Russian military and intelligence agencies, the Associated Press reports [2].

Agents executed a search warrant Wednesday at Arc Electronics Inc. in what they said was a secret military procurement network.

The AP said agents were searching for microelectronics, which can be used in missile guidance systems, surveillance systems and detonation triggers.

The search follows an indictment that identifies 11 members of the alleged network.
