Three U.S. warships come and go frequently aircraft reconnaissance China Sea Fleet
2007, China’s maritime surveillance aircraft in the waters under the jurisdiction of an event in my acoustic surveillance ship of the U.S. military surveillance. State Oceanic Administration, the International Herald Tribune website
freelance writer Hai Tao from Beijing, “If China warned to leave immediately after, then what is not a contradiction.” March 13, a Hong Kong media still talk of The so-called U.S. “ocean surveillance ship,” “no time” was a Chinese vessel 8 “tail blocking” event.
but in fact, “no time” is still wandering the South China Sea, the U.S. military sent to “escort” and “Aegis” destroyers “bell goes,” No. 18 is expected to be around its confluence . Therefore, this Hong Kong media have come to this conclusion: “Like last time the U.S. reconnaissance aircraft collided with the Chinese military, like the United States to monitor China’s military is absolutely impossible to stop … …”
frequently haunt the three Sea
China has been the focus of the surrounding waters are the U.S. military reconnaissance direction. In addition to relying on the “clouds” system 18 NRO ocean surveillance satellites, and stationed in Okinawa, Japan, South Korea Wonsan base of the “Global Hawk” unmanned reconnaissance aircraft and E-2 AWACS, the dispatched a naval vessel at or near the reconnaissance, the United States has always the practice of military action.
based detection of different objects and purposes, the U.S. military in the Yellow Sea, East China Sea, South China Sea, focusing on the direction of the surveillance is also differentiated. Yellow main direction for the Chinese Navy’s North Sea Fleet, including nuclear submarines, the main sea route reconnaissance near the submarine topography, marine gravity, marine magnetic, currents, tides and other marine environmental information. Main direction of the East China Sea East China Sea Fleet for the Chinese navy, which “modern” class guided missile destroyers, “Kilo” class submarines, conventional submarines, 039 combat forces such as trends, the U.S. military surveillance ship monitoring focus. South China Sea, the main direction for the Chinese South China Sea Fleet, in addition to routine surveillance subjects, “the construction of nuclear submarine base in Sanya, Yalong Bay,” a U.S. military reconnaissance of the recent focus.
Currently, the U.S. has established an advanced spy satellite, large-scale surveillance ship, submarine and three-dimensional integrated monitoring system, surveillance system. U.S. military not only have access to Chinese ports, including location, ship sound characteristics, Sea tidal regime and other important strategic, operational-level intelligence, but also for the Chinese naval training exercises and test new weapons and other tactical-level intelligence.
reconnaissance means varied
China in the U.S. maritime surveillance system, the various types of surveillance ship’s arrival nearly reconnaissance plays an irreplaceable role. Including the South China Sea, resulting in “confrontation” incident “no time”, there are now, the U.S. has a total fleet of more than 20 professional military surveillance ship, belonging to the U.S. military Sealift Command. According to different tasks can be divided into comprehensive tracking ship, acoustic probes, marine geology survey ships, and other electronic surveillance ship. The purpose of accurate and detailed military surveillance ship access to submarine topography, seabed topography, sub-bottom profiles, seabed surface sediment and other battlefield information.
similar to those “no time” of the acoustic surveillance ship, “Bowditch” Sea of ??China’s comprehensive surveillance ship of the “regulars.” “Bowditch” (T-ACS62) every year in China’s Yellow Sea, Taiwan Strait waters of the multiple intelligence detection and collection activities. The vessel equipped with multiple-beam echo sounder, sonar, wide-beam light through the large number of reconnaissance and measurement equipment, has a highly integrated intelligence gathering capability.
And when the Chinese navy’s missile tests or large-scale military exercises, known as “sea of ??intelligence vacuum cleaner” surveillance of U.S. missile ship will “come to the” ships of the Chinese technical performance of the plane’s electronic equipment , radio communications, missile launch parameters for gathering intelligence and surveillance.
dangerous threat to regional stability and reconnaissance
normal circumstances, the U.S. surveillance ship about 40 sea miles from the coast of China have been very close to 12-mile territorial sea line. In recent years, the U.S. military in the waters near China’s military activities have been measuring the rise. China’s “territorial sea and the Contiguous Zone” does not recognize foreign warships in territorial waters within the “right of innocent passage,” once the U.S. entered the Chinese territorial waters, it will have been detained by the Chinese side.
2002 In September, the U.S. military “Bowditch” exclusive economic zone into China’s Yellow Sea seabed topography mapping and implementation with a towed sonar underwater monitoring operations. Chinese navy and sea surveillance to intercept a number of departments, and signal requirements of U.S. warships to stop work, leave the waters under the jurisdiction of China. After repeated warnings, a nearby Chinese fishing vessels operating on the sea of ??”Bowditch” sonar hydrophone on Zhuang Fei. Monitor fails “Bowditch” had to leave the Yellow Sea, drove back the Japanese base in maintenance.
the U.S. to send “bell goes” warship escort for the South China Sea, the illegal surveillance activities, the two sides will further increase the friction and even conflict may be at sea, and thus regional stability unpredictable threats. ( Source: International Herald Tribune )
