A Belmont woman was sentenced to 23 months in prison Wednesday for illegally sending electronic components used in military technology to China, said US Attorney Carmen M. Ortiz’s office. Yufeng Wei, a Chinese national who was a former manager of a Waltham electronics company, conspired over a 10-year period to export technology to China used in “military phased-array radar, electronic warfare, and missile systems,” Ortiz’s office said in a statement. Wei, 50, was first convicted with her former husband, Zhen Zhou Wu, in May 2010 for the illegal exports. On March 19, 2013, the US Court of Appeals for the First Circuit affirmed Wei’s conviction.
