China’s top science and technology awards secretly given to military technology

Xiang Libin is granted China’s top annual science and technology award

The following is based on a translation of a report on a Chinese news site:

A report on war.163.com gave the news of Xiang Libin winning China’s top annual science and technology award, even though official Chinese media reported that nobody had won it.

The news of the win came from the Initiative Foundation of the Science and Technology University of China.

Xiang won the award for his more than 20 achievements, mainly in the area of satellite technology.

The report says that China’s science and technology awards are given to both common and special items of achievements, in which most of the special items are military ones that have to be kept confidential.

Only a few of them have been made public for propaganda purposes, such as the 921 manned space flight, quantum communication, HY2000 AEW&C aircraft, J-10 and J-11 fighter jets, J-20 stealth fighter jet and Y-20 large transport aircraft.

According to military expert Mr. Lei Ze, due to the secrecy, the names and achievements of quite a few top Chinese scientists have to remain unknown for decades, including Deng Jiaxian, major organiser of the development of China’s nuclear weapons and Yu Min who has independently developed China’s H bombs.

Another top scientist, Research Fellow Ma Weimin, has also been kept secret.

Ma has won the year’s top national award for Science and Technology Team for his development of China’s electromagnetic catapult and the integrated power system for propulsion in China’s large warships and submarines, including that in China’s newest Type 039 conventional submarine.

Chan Kai Yee's new book: SPACE ERA STRATEGY: The Way China Beats The US An eye-opening book that tells the truth how the US is losing to China. The US is losing as it adopts the outdated strategy of Air-Sea Battle while China adopts the space era strategy to pursue integrated space and air capabilities: It is losing due to its diplomacy that has given rise to Russian-Chinese alliance. US outdated strategy has enabled China to catch up and surpass the US in key weapons: Hypersonic weapons (HGV) that Pentagon regards as the weapon that will dominate the world in the future. Aerospaceplane in China’s development of space-air bomber that can engage enemy anywhere in the world within an hour and destroy an entire aircraft carrier battle group within minutes. Anti-satellite (ASAT) weapons, anti-ASAT weapons, stealth aircrafts, drones, AEW&C, etc. The book gives detailed descriptions of China’s weapon development based on information mainly from Chinese sources that the author monitors closely. U.S. Must Not Be Beaten by China! China is not a democracy. Its political system cannot prevent the emergence of a despotic leader or stop such a leader when he begins to bring disasters to people. A few decades ago, Mao Zedong, the worst tyrant in world history did emerge and bring disasters to Chinese people. He wanted to fight a nuclear war to replace capitalism with communism but could not bring nuclear holocaust to world people as China was too weak and poor at that time. If a despot like Mao Zedong emerges when China has surpassed the US in military strength, world people will suffer the misery experienced by Chinese people in Mao era. China surpassing the US in GDP is not something to worry about as China has the heavy burden to satisfy its huge population, but China surpassing the US in military strength will be world people’s greatest concern if China remains an autocracy. US people are of much better quality than Chinese people. What they lack is a wise leader to adopt the correct strategy and diplomacy and the creative ways to use its resources in developing its military capabilities. I hope that with the emergence of a great leader, the US can put an end to its decline and remain number one in the world.
