High-Tech Spy Equipment typical is very expensive due to low volume and one off production rates...there use to be a time specialized gadgets were low key operations, but times have changed. More or less the same problem with High-Tech Companies Espionage has brought down the success of low keyed operations...pretty hard to digest multimillion or even billion dollar operations being toppled by simple old school methods.

Basically spies still doing all the grunt work are still the most resourceful with very high success rates even when it comes to high-tech...typically dubbed master spy.

The trick is; to be able to manufacture the item below budget. Bring "think-tanks" into the boardroom and let the bean counters focus on everything else, but the production of th high-tech items. If China can do it, so can we. And much better.
