06/18/13: The US-China Economic and Security Review Commission released a report discussing the future of China's military unmanned aerial vehicle industry. In the long term, China’s continued interest and progression in strategic-level UAVs appear poised to position China as a leader in the high-end UAV market. While firms such as SAC and CASIC are better known within China’s UAV industry, they are relative newcomers and occupy a much smaller and more specialized niche within the field – namely long-range ISR – than does ASN. Furthermore, their specialties cater to the PLA’s emerging operational requirements, particularly to monitor foreign military forces at longer ranges. However, limited public information on UAVs in development at China’s defense industry and PLA-based R&D centers, as well as their long incubation periods, makes it difficult to assess the timeline for development and operational capability in the PLA.
