This project builds on work conducted by the University of California Institute on Global Conflict and Cooperation through its Study of Innovation and Technology in China SITC project, which examines how China is making concerted progress toward becoming an advanced national and defense science, technology, and innovation power the lessons that can be applied in the study of defense innovation in other rising and near-peer countries and the strategic implications for the United States and the balance of power in the Asia-Pacific region and globally. The project originally consisted of three sub-projects 1 Chinas Defense Research, Development, and Acquisition System 2 Annual Review of Chinas Defense Industrial Base and 3 Applying Lessons Learned from China to Understand How Other Countries Become Military Technological and Industrial Powers. However, as funding was cut for Year 3 of the project, we were unable to pursue the sub-project on Chinas defense research, development, and acquisition system.
