Abstract : The Rocketry Dictionary is the fourth in the series but the first produced by the 7602nd Air Intelligence Group. Due to its large content, this dictionary will be published in three volumes, containing about 60,000 terms selected from sources published in Mainland China. The terms included relate not only to rocket engineering, missiles, space technology, etc., but also incorporate vocabulary from the basic sciences and the auxiliary technologies closely associated with rocketry, such as mathematics, chemistry, telecommunications, control systems, metallurgy, welding, machinery, etc. Other subject areas may be published in the future depending on factors such as feedback from recipients of this publication, availability of fiscal and manpower resources, etc. The special features of this dictionary include an abridged STC index in each volume covering the terms presented in that volume; conformity with Mainland China practice in regard to (1) terminology, (2) style of the Chinese characters, and (3) complete alphabetical look-up by means of the 'pinyin' spelling. Characters in some of the terms have been regrouped for optimum clarity and suitability for computer processing.
