The unsafe components were employed in the creating of Taurus XL, a rocket that was alleged to deliver satellites learning the Earth's climate throughout missions distributed in 2009 and 2011.
"Due in large part to the hard work and dedication of many highly motivated people in the NASA Launch Services program, we are able to close out the cause of two extremely disappointing launch vehicle failures and protect the government aerospace supply chain", said Amanda Mitskevich, LSP program manager at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in, Florida. "In this case, our trust was severely violated".
"For almost 20 years, Sapa Profiles and Sapa Extrusions falsified critical tests on the aluminum they sold - tests that their customers, including the U.S. government, depended on to ensure the reliability of the aluminum they purchased", said Assistant Attorney General Brian Benczkowski of the Department of Justice's Criminal Division. The effect of the faulty part was that the metal was used as part of the Taurus XL rocket.
A NASA investigation has identified faulty materials as the cause of two launch failures that cost the agency more than $700 million.

"When testing results are altered and certifications are provided falsely, missions fail", said Jim Norman, director for launch services at NASA in Washington.
At the time, NASA said its launch vehicle malfunctioned: The Taurus rocket's payload fairing failed to separate.
A company that supplied faulty aluminium parts for rocket launches will pay $46 million to NASA, the Department of Defence, and other victims of its fraud scheme. The parts of the rocket affected were the aluminium extrusions used in the payload fairing rail frangible joint.
According to the Justice Department, "SPI disputes NASA's positions, and except for those facts admitted to in the DPA (deferred prosecution agreement) and the plea agreement, the claims resolved by the civil settlement are allegations only". This suspension has been in effect since September 2015. SPI itself was motivated by profits and the need to hide the inconsistent quality of its aluminum products, while its employees were motivated by production-based bonuses. Equipment used by the USA military has also been created using the faulty SPI aluminium.
