The United States continues to allow American Companies to collaborate with Chinese Aerospace and military firms. A report from Rand shows that the U.S. is the number one provider of technology in many areas of the Chinese Military Complex.
Just look at some of Rand’s Findings
• The effect of U.S.-Chinese research collaboration should be viewed in terms of threats
and benefits. We find evidence of both.
– In terms of threats, U.S.-based organizations have coauthored more aerospace engineering publications with Chinese organizations with linkages to the People’s Liberation Army in recent years than in the past.
■ There is a nontrivial amount of U.S.-Chinese research collaboration on sensitive
topics, such as hypersonic systems.
– In terms of benefits, we find that aerospace publications written by teams composed
of researchers from the United States and China have greater-than-average influence
and are more interdisciplinary
The reality is, these collaborations could ultimately be used against us.
