Fereydoun Abbasi was an early revolutionary, a member of the Revolutionary Guards and has been associated with various defense projects for decades. A check shows little published by him, strange for a professor and a strong indication he has been working on classified projects. Majid Shahriari was an advisor the multi-national SESAME project. Israel's advisors to that joint project are Professor Moshe Paz-Pasternak and rofessor Eliezer Rabinovici. He also has left a quite conventional record of publications. "Discrete formulation for two-dimensional multigroup neutron diffusion equations", of great use to those designing nuclear reactors, "Design of a Nuclear Level Switch using MCNP code, and comparison with experimental results," essentially for industrial applications. Most of his recent work involved medical applications. Unlike Abbasi, Shahriari seems an unlikely prospect for a significant clandestine career.
