Japanese media said China would touch U.S. RQ170 UAV countermeasures R & D
data for: Iran recently declared that the United States shot down an unmanned aerial vehicles, UAVs and published this photo.
According to the Japanese “diplomats” magazine website published December 24, the U.S. National Defense University Institute for Strategic Studies’ Center for Chinese military affairs “research analyst Joshua – Wiseman (Joshua Wiseman) articles that contacts with the U.S. stealth UAV can provide China with the development of key technologies required to reverse a lot of content, such as China and Iran will give a chance?
article that crashed in eastern Iran, the U.S. RQ-170 stealth UAV people can not help but speculate that it will eventually fall into Chinese hands. UAVs get this, China will be able to absorb the reverse development of key technologies to use in the national aviation system; and be able to work out the appropriate antidote, so that the U.S. stealth UAV and aircraft more difficult to running around in China. Iran in the political, military and economic aspects of good reasons to provide this facility to China, which also will reverse output technology to Iran from China’s consistent flow.
even whether some Iranian officials claim that the so-called Iran’s lack of technical capacity of the RQ-170 on the development of advanced technologies for self-replication; to China can provide this facility for the benefit of Iran – which China will help to provide military technology to Iran, including possible future UAV combat strategy, and China and the West in Iran confrontation on its nuclear program to provide diplomatic support.
since the early 1980s, China and Iran established a good relationship between the arms purchases. China has provided Iran with fighter aircraft, including (F-7), fast attack patrol boats, anti-ship cruise missiles, and ballistic missile programs in Iran guidance technology military equipment. According to Iran’s semi-official news agency of Mai Heer (Mehr News Agency) said that China and Russia, officials have proposed inspection requirement RQ-170.
recently by the U.S. National Defense University, Philip – Sanders (Phillip Saunders) and I conducted my research, examines the history of China’s military aviation industry; and gives access to foreign aircraft design and component reverse How to help China develop its aviation technologies to expand the strength of many examples. With the deterioration of Sino-Soviet relations in 1960, China developed through reverse to fill technology gaps and improve the design of the old Soviet Union. Contact through a third country, the restricted U.S. aircraft and aviation technology application in China provides the opportunity to reverse development. Have been commonly cited example: China’s close relationship with Pakistan, and to access F-16 fighter. Such contacts in China to determine to what extent is difficult, but open sources suggest that Chinese technicians in the early 1980s on a visit to Pakistan, and a chance to check the F-16 fighter (I recommend Liwei Chen (voice) The article “The birth of a sale of business: China has become a weapon supplier”). Islamabad may have to complete subsystems also transferred to China, and provide the necessary service of aircraft design and maintenance drawings.
reported that China’s military aviation industry technology infrastructure and production capacity precision air systems over the past two years has been developing rapidly; which greatly improved its UAV RQ-170 through the development of ability and potential for replication. For example, China’s Jian-10 multirole fighter absorbed metal alloys and composite materials technology, in order to achieve low weight and high strength. Russian Su-27 fighter jets by the reverse combination of development and co-production, China has developed its own national conditions carry more focused on the fourth generation subsystem F-11B fighter. Prototype stealth fighter F -20 in January for the first test flight, the opening of China to show new stealth aircraft designed to absorb technology.
the same time, China has spent a lot of energy development and deployment of its own UAV capability. In 2010, China’s biennial air show in Zhuhai on display 25 different UAV models machine. Behalf of the Chinese ASN Technology Group – one of China’s major UAV manufacturers – officials announced that the PLA has two unmanned running. Society in its international strategy, “the military balance in 2010,” pointed out that China has deployed several types of UAVs, for including “battle with the investigation”; However, it did not specifically mention the armed UAVs.
Although China has not to armed drones to the battlefield, but the advanced stage of development the number of models that, in the near future, this capability will be part of air power. UAV system deployment to meet the growing Chinese military “information” theory needs to improve its situational awareness, and add another layer of long-range goals and strike capabilities, thereby strengthening its peripheral place in China to avoid military contact capacity.
Once exposed to the RQ-170 unmanned aerial vehicles, will allow Chinese engineers have the opportunity to learn UAV sensor systems, control and communications systems, and to achieve the required materials and stealth design elements. Contact with the UAV may further allow the engineers to understand how their subsystems together, and how as an integrated whole and to operate. China’s aviation industry can not even reverse development and production of the localization of the same RQ-170 UAV, Chinese engineers from the RQ-170 may also learned enough things to improve countermeasures and similar systems of their defense. China has in its air defense and research methods of defeating the U.S. stealth technology to invest a considerable effort, so if you have access to the RQ-170, will help China find out how advanced the U.S. UAV operation, and come up with identify weaknesses in its operation of the new method.
against Iran’s air defenses or means, in the RQ-170 crashes in how to play the role is not clear. A senior Pentagon official anonymity to the “Washington Post” said that the UAV has crashed, “95% of the possible” due to technical failure. U.S. officials later denied the statement directly to the Iranian claims “by a complex network of RQ-170 attacks to fall”; but whether Iran may be using other methods such as GPS jamming to interfere with the flight of UAVs do not The same limit.
However, even if the RQ-170 lost in Iran is due to technical failure, China’s UAVs can also help draw against contact with tools, and improve air defense to make it more difficult for enemy territory, the United States run stealth UAV. Iran will be the main customers of such systems, unmanned aerial vehicles sold in China means the commitment and confrontation could provide Iran with RQ-170 part of the price. (Sri Lanka years) ★
