” International Herald Tribune, “freelance writer Hai Tao from Beijing August 26 to 27 Sino-US Military Maritime Consultation Mechanism special meeting held in Beijing. During the meeting, the Chinese side pointed out that the U.S. exclusive economic zone in China and its air and sea reconnaissance over the frequent measurement of activity is caused by U.S. naval and air military security root of the problem, stop the ship until the requirements of the U.S. military machine to reduce detection activities.
In fact, as a prerequisite to support maritime operations, including the submarine topography, marine gravity, marine magnetic, currents, tides and other environmental data, including marine, coastal States are directly related to important national security information . For China’s coastal waters, U.S. Navy officials have privately said, “We understand it even more than China, this is like our ‘back garden’.”
maritime surveillance Chinese submarine
a long time, to make up 18 “white” ocean surveillance satellite system for reconnaissance gaps, first-hand intelligence, U.S. Military attaches great importance to the use of military surveillance ship, and as usual the main access to sensitive sources of battlefield information.
same time, as in 1996 the Chinese government formally approved to join the “United Nations Convention on Law of the Sea,” China’s dramatically expanding the scope of jurisdictional waters, exclusive economic zone 200 nautical miles U.S. reconnaissance and anti-reconnaissance situation increasingly severe.
2001 South China Sea, “4.1″ aircraft collision incident in 2002, “Bowditch” events have occurred, the U.S. military did not learn, but intensified. In order to strengthen the surveillance of the Chinese navy submarine force, in addition to the U.S. military since 2004, “Bowditch” comprehensive tracking ship year-round cruising in the East China Sea, Yellow Sea, the frequent implementation of submarine surveys, acoustic monitoring, collecting data from the seabed and ocean currents, specifically for the Chinese submarine underwater detection of vessels calling at U.S. ports in Japan, the number increasing every year, twenty times from 2004 up to 40 times in 2006.
2009, the U.S. military’s frequent surveillance and finally once again came close to causing the Sino-US confrontation at sea. March 8, the U.S. military “no time” in the South China Sea exclusive economic zone of underwater exploration vessel with the Chinese confrontation between the number of vessels; May 5, the U.S. military “victory” was underwater exploration vessel in the Chinese Yellow Sea exclusive economic confrontation with the Chinese vessel area waters; May 11, the South China Sea it was rumored that the U.S. “John McCain” may be related to the Chinese submarine destroyer “collision” message.
air “capture” China’s early-warning
since the Chinese Air Force has been equipped early warning aircraft, the U.S. military-related institutions has not been idle, often a modified plane in the East China Sea and the Taiwan Strait over the “squat.” According to reports, the U.S. military has been trying to intercept Chinese AWACS-ground signal, a good part by the technology to decipher the truth after thorough understanding of early warning aircraft to China.
interception of signals responsible for daily tasks, is stationed in Kadena Air Force Base, U.S. Air Force 390 Intelligence Squadron 3 RC-135 strategic reconnaissance plane. According to Taiwan media reports, three reconnaissance aircraft were specifically modified and equipped for the capture of China’s early warning signal of the electronic system, and reconnaissance shift focus from the Nanjing Military Region, Korea, in the East China Sea and flying sorties over the Taiwan Strait has increased substantially. According to the Chinese Air Force sources, who declined to be named, came to the U.S. military reconnaissance frequency is generally twice a week.
U.S. aerial reconnaissance in force along the Chinese coast and far more than this. According to Japan, “Asahi Shimbun” reported that in 2003, in addition to three RC-135, the U.S. military has deployed three E-3 AWACS, the other highly classified U.S. U-2 high altitude strategic reconnaissance plane in Kadena’s number of up to five. Since then, the U.S. military also deployed several times to strengthen and increase the types of reconnaissance 8.
U.S. military will not take the initiative to stop the surveillance
U.S. exclusive economic zone in China’s surveillance activities during the Cold War continues to this day from the Yellow Sea, East China Sea , South China Sea, all the Chinese navy Zhubo, the submarine to the sea, exercises and weapons testing area near sea, always always find all kinds of surveillance ship of the U.S. military presence. Relying on large-scale integrated surveillance ship, ship and submarine acoustic detection monitor system constitutes an integrated network of surveillance, the U.S. military trying to activities of Chinese naval law, audio features and other important information throughout the implementation, full-dimensional, full-time surveillance and control to ensure offshore areas in China, the U.S. military intelligence information superiority.
for China’s demands, the U.S. Pacific Policy Planning Secretary Rudolf Ahlers led the U.S. delegation expressed willingness by the Sino-US maritime military security consultation mechanism with China to continue to explore to ensure both safe and effective way to ship machines. Objectively speaking, the expectations of the U.S. initiative to stop the surveillance activities of the exclusive economic zone in China, it would be difficult to achieve in the near future.
have observers here believe that China should take the maritime legislation and maritime law enforcement, “two-pronged” strategy to take various measures to illegal military reconnaissance activities “squeeze” the waters under the jurisdiction of China, safeguard national maritime security and interests.
