This educational foundation set the groundwork for his successful career with NJ Micro Electronic Testing, Inc., where he has worked since joining the company in over 4 decades ago.
In the early days of his career at NJMET, Joseph developed and patented the Mission: Imposter testing system designed to check the quality and authenticity of various electronic components. Counterfeited and cloned components plague the electronics equipment manufacturing industry, and the Mission: Imposter system is a crucial milestone in the fight for quality, reliability, and authenticity in a variety of production processes. The Mission: Imposter system uses chemical, physical, electrical, and metallurgical tests to determine the authenticity and quality of an electronic component and was a major consultant to many of the anti-counterfeiting test objectives developed today. Joseph worked to co-develop the military and aerospace reliability department at NJMET, which helped to propel his career in leadership with the company. He has written many articles for the industry on the topic of electronic testing.
After nearly four decades with NJMET, Joseph Federico of NJ now serves as The Vice President and Director of Operations for the company.

His leadership and commitment to excellence have helped NJMET earn several industry accolades and acknowledgments, including the Israeli ODEM Award and the title of United States Small Business Administration Region II Subcontractor of the Year. Joseph and his team also received recognition during a television special hosted by William Shatner, where the team received a “Keeping America Strong” award for their efforts and accomplishments.
Joseph Federico earned an associate’s degree from the Metropolitan Technical Institute and a bachelor’s degree in electronic engineering technology from Fairleigh Dickinson University. This education created the foundation of his career with NJ Micro Electronic Testing, Inc., where Joseph has worked since completing his education in 1978. Today, Joseph is the Vice President and Director of Operations for NJMET.
Early in his career, Joseph developed an innovative testing system to check the quality and authenticity of various electronic components. Counterfeit and cloned electronic parts are problems that plague many electronic equipment manufacturers and product developers all over the world, and Joseph does his utmost to help others ensure the authenticity of their electronic components.
The testing system developed by Joseph Federico, Mission: Imposter, which was helpful in the development of most counterfeit detection requirements in the electronic industry, is a varied regimen of physical, chemical, metallurgical, and electronic tests designed to detect counterfeited and cloned electronic components. His work in this field served as a foundation for continued innovations in the counterfeit detection field.
Joseph Federico currently works as the Vice President and Director of Operations for NJ Micro Electronic Testing, Inc. In this capacity, Joseph works diligently to complete strategic business objectives, meet targeted growth goals, and streamline work processes to ensure quality and security at every level of NJMET.
Joseph’s has earned his associate’s degree from the Metropolitan Technical Institute and then his bachelor’s degree in electronic engineering technology from Fairleigh Dickinson University. This educational foundation, along with his co-development of the military and aerospace reliability department, propelled Joseph Federico into the leadership of NJMET and is currently working on an executive Business degree from Columbia University.
Joseph developed the Mission: Imposter testing system to verify counterfeited and cloned electronic components. This innovative system, which has been helpful in the development of most counterfeit detection requirements in the electronic industry, uses a variety of physical, chemical, metallurgical, and electronic tests to check the authenticity of various electronic components. When product manufacturers use subpar or counterfeit components in their products, those products may not perform up to the manufacturer’s standards or may even cause failures and injuries to end users. Detecting and removing counterfeit components is an essential part of the NJMET workflow, and Joseph Federico has focused on this capacity significantly throughout his career at NJMET.
Since joining the NJMET team in 1978, Joseph has helped the company earn several significant accolades including the Israeli ODEM Award, and the title of United States Small Business Administration Region II Subcontractor of the Year. Joseph’s team also received the “Keeping America Strong” award during a television special hosted by William Shatner, where he and his team received recognition for their accomplishments and innovative new electronic component testing systems.
US Department of Transportation rulemaking on V2V and V2I communications.
There is likely to be much more chatter on the road, but you won’t hear it. Cars will soon be talking to each other and to the road infrastructure.
Vehicle to Vehicle (V2V) communication took a significant step forward this month as the US Department of Transportation issued a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking on deploying the technology. The proposed rule would require automakers to include V2V technologies in all new light-duty cars and trucks. The rule proposes requires V2V devices to “speak the same language” through standardized messaging. Continue reading “Talking Cars Coming to a Highway Near You”
