The purpose of this study is to identify a small number of bins into which Chinas strategies for acquiring advanced technology, and especially military technology, can be assigned. In the context of the study, acquisition is broadly interpreted, encompassing a variety of means by which technology comes into PRC possession. It includes external as well as domestic sources of technology, purchases as well as thefts, foreign-assisted developments as well as wholly indigenous achievements, and strictly military oriented technologies as well as those featuring dual uses. A greater understanding of these strategies promises to provide insights into future Chinese military modernization efforts.
