Abstract:

On June 22, 2015, the China Aerospace Studies Institute CASI, in conjunction with Headquarters, Air Force, held a day-long conference in Arlington, Virginia, titled Assessing Chinese Aerospace Training and Operational Competence. The purpose of the conference was to share the results of nine months of research and analysis by RAND researchers and to expose their work to critical review by experts and operators knowledgeable about U.S. and Chinese air, space, and missile operations. The research drew heavily on openly published Chinese language sources, many of which have not been translated into English. CASI researchers presented eight papers at the conference and received valuable feedback from discussants and participants, both during the conference and afterward.
