Congressman John Rutherford and Congressman Jim Langevin invite you to a briefing on Tuesday, October 23rd at 2:00 PM in 2358-A Rayburn (please note the briefing is no longer in Cannon) with analysts from the Center for Naval Analyses (CNA) to discuss China’s rapid progress in space, cyber, and long-range missile technologies and the implications for U.S. security.
Chinese military observers and scholars argue that in order to guarantee victory in modern war, the People’s Liberation Army must first achieve superiority in the information domain, preferably by striking first. The PLA intends for its space, cyber, and missile operations to gain an asymmetric advantage over the U.S. military and to fulfill its mandate to protect China’s interests in space and cyberspace. This briefing will cover the PLA’s plans, policies, and acquisition strategies to achieve its objectives in these warfare domains.
Event details are below. Please RSVP to Leigh Maiden (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you or your defense or foreign policy staffer would like to attend. Interns are also welcome.
