An important career milestone for Joseph was the development and patenting of his Mission: Imposter system. This electronic component testing regimen includes a variety of physical, chemical, metallurgical, and electronic tests designed to identify counterfeit and cloned electronic components. Counterfeiting is a major problem in electronic product manufacturing, as unwary manufacturers may be duped into purchasing subpar or counterfeit components that can cause injuries to end users and impact product quality.

He has also written more than a dozen articles on electronic testing for the industry. This Patented program has helped in the developments of many Risk Mitigation Program in The Electronics Industry.
