In late December of 2014, a 32 year old Austrian named Daniel Frosch appeared in a courtroom in Graz and pleaded guilty to violating Austria's federal trade laws. For more than a decade prior, Frosch had been a dynamic young international exporter, trading high-tech equipment and technology from bases in Austria, the UAE and the Philippines.

US authorities, meanwhile, accused Frosch of being a key supplier to Iran's ballistic missile programme.

This Alpha case study provides new analysis of Daniel Frosch's activities, and tracks the attempts of authorities in at least five countries to bring an end to his alleged role in supporting Iran's proliferation-related programmes.
