China's Military Ambitions in Space and America's Response
Testimony before the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission
While China pursues a growing commercial, deep space and space science agenda, the foundation of its space program remains the pursuit of military advantage for the People's Liberation Army (PLA). China's space endeavors are subordinate to the PLA. While the PLA does not offer public briefings or budget information about its space combat programs, there is a considerable body of "secondary" literature presumably based on strategy or doctrine, which has long appeared to justify the development of a PLA capability to wage war in space.
