Conax Florida Corp. agreed to resolve allegations under the False Claims Act that the company submitted false claims to the government for improperly tested inertia reels and non-conforming voltage references. Inertia reels are part of a system designed to secure aircrew members in the event of a crash. Voltage references are electronic parts used in water-activated parachute releases. Both devices are used by the U.S. military and NASA. The allegations were first raised in a qui tam lawsuit filed under the whistleblower provisions of the False Claims Act. DOJ
