Japanese intelligence operations

For a long time, the Japanese intelligence agencies of the security system in Japan, plays an important role, but against China's military collection in the overall information system also occupies a prominent position. Targeted for decades to collect intelligence on China, so that Japan already has a large group of intelligence agencies Among them, the Cabinet Information Bureau of Investigation's "foreign intelligence group," a ministry of defense intelligence headquarters in the strongest. In particular the establishment of the latter, so that Japan's intelligence, but also including countries in the world of military intelligence gathering into a stable, comprehensive status quo, but also changed the post-war Japan heterogeneous information systems, information exchanges and cooperation with the lack of, all into one and so on.

Cabinet Information Bureau of Investigation - high-level intelligence gathering on China

This is a Japanese state-led nature of intelligence agencies, whose role is to gather members of the Cabinet decision-making in particular, political decision-making required information. It consists of the domestic intelligence agencies and other intelligence agencies, state agencies, private companies, social organizations, departments and multi-media collaboration with institutions such as a coalition liaison. While the establishment and small, but China's featured a variety of intelligence gathering. Last year, in February, the Japanese government in a special study of the reform of intelligence agencies "intelligence to strengthen the functions of conferences", in particular an introduction of the Japanese government aimed at strengthening the intelligence gathering and analysis capabilities of the studies, set up a "cabinet of intelligence analysis officer," a level, its composition more for foreign and security sector. Among them, the group responsible for China's problems, the main writing out the assessment of the Chinese government, especially the safety of Chinese military strategy, military movements, weapons and equipment, trends and other content, for the Japanese high-level decision-making. Another news reports, one from the Japanese Foreign Ministry's expert group is also particularly like the Japanese government set up in accordance with the framework of the United Kingdom Junqingliuchu intelligence organizations, and received special education and training agents to the identity of the diplomatic staff sent to target countries, in particular, is the tense and delicate relations with Japan China, Russia and other countries.

Intelligence headquarters

Founded in 1996, the intelligence headquarters of Japan's most open and most direct military intelligence-gathering agencies. The primary object of the reconnaissance, Russia and North Korea, detection methods, including intelligence surveillance, radio reconnaissance, radio-electronic reconnaissance, space reconnaissance, etc., a variety of reconnaissance means. Central Intelligence team from the "central geographic teams" and the "central force" which consists of the "central geographic teams" and the "central force" While the establishment of a number of only 600 people, but the goal is very clear, is to ensure that Japan's Self-Defense Forces operations in the future , especially in response to the Taiwan Strait crisis or emergency, when the peninsula and achieve the war, surveillance and geographic information integration. Reported that they undertake a special mission team did not just textual information, but all areas of direct involvement in China, direct contact with the relevant person or department to obtain vital information.

"The Central Geographic Team" responsible for collection of geographical information, "central information team" is responsible for the collection, translation of foreign military intelligence. From the operational point of view, intelligence gathering on China, not only through military means blatant military reconnaissance, intelligence headquarters in secret by the assignment, but also to non-governmental exchanges, the name of scientific exploration to engage in intelligence-gathering activities in China. As in last year and this year, there are several Japanese scholars in the field of China's Xinjiang accurate detection employed although it is related to the University side and a number of social groups, such as Japan and the integration of Earth Environmental Science Research Institute, but there are media analysis, the current Japanese R & D departments have many have a military background, mostly for the Japanese military to provide indirect military services. In Japan on China's geological exploration, for example, the precise coordinates for the Japanese-guided weapon systems provide important data can be directly implemented for the future long-range precision attack on service in Japan on China's national security constitutes a serious threat.

In last year's successful launch of China's "Shenzhou" spacecraft, the Japanese quickly set up a "China Information Center", who plunged into the requirements 3 billion yen. According to reports, the Center has specialized in the Japanese mainland radio listening room, monitoring personnel 24 hours a day listening and included Chinese central and local radio programs, and immediately order archive.

In fact, apart from the Japanese government sent officials, a number of close contacts with the Chinese private trading company in Japan, sometimes responsible for China Center and other political, economic intelligence-gathering missions. Japan's most famous "Trade Promotion" for example, that there will be nearly one hundred firms in the world, in China Beijing, Shanghai and other major cities have their own offices or branch offices, and their In addition to the work of business consulting, trade negotiations, the comprehensive collection of Chinese political, economic, military intelligence, but also their important task. As for Japan in China's economic, political and other intelligence gathering activities, companies, trading companies and countless others from different areas of China through various channels to collect valuable information

Space & aviation-based intelligence gathering

So far, based on military and civilian high-level scientific and technological means of reconnaissance, Japan has been formed to own satellites, early warning aircraft, reconnaissance aircraft, radar, listening stations, spy satellites and other means of reconnaissance and early warning network, in particular intelligence-gathering system in Japan In the United States, France and other countries with the help of the surrounding area committed to improving the military intelligence-gathering capabilities, the establishment of a large database is fully equipped with the right implementation of China's super-high altitude, air, sea and sea targets of intelligence gathering under the full azimuth, full-time, three-dimensional reconnaissance model, focusing on China's fighter planes, ships and missiles to carry out reconnaissance and intelligence gathering.

In the ultra-high-altitude detection. On the current spy satellites have been launched by the number and quality of view, are the low-altitude satellites in orbit, the detection accuracy. Prior to Japan's "Daily News" has reported that, according to Japan's defense ministry, "the future of Information and Communication Policy" plan, the Japanese in the future in addition to reconnaissance satellite systems, will also use the private communications satellites and television broadcasting satellite to form a complete Image intelligence gathering and transmission networks, thereby expanding the scope of intelligence gathering. In particular, to take full advantage of the United States, "Google" system to be refined for its own purposes, its coverage can be achieved over 75% of China's regions, covering the East Asia and the Middle East, and even some African countries in order to, when something happens in the periphery, can form a rear support for U.S. forces can also be run independently, self-contained and not be controlled by others. Analysts pointed out that Japan's satellite detection system, more than half against China, forming a multi-period, the collection of weather information system. In the air reconnaissance, the Japanese Air Self-Defense Force equipped early warning aircraft, China's coastal waters can be 24-hour surveillance, focusing on the Chinese navy and the missile deployment, to collect intelligence.

On the ground and maritime surveillance, using a ground radar stations, satellite-based workstations and stations. In recent years, the Japanese Maritime Self-Defense Force background at the "jack" was, "Bai Ling" was, "takyo" No. "Akihiro" was tracking ship, often the name of Scientific Expedition to the East China Sea, detecting the banner and open in China Sea activities, increase surveillance efforts in China's neighboring waters. To tie in with activities in the region, Japan will, in its southwestern Fukue Island, a new set of electromagnetic detection system, designed to monitor China's military activities, the monitoring system and the establishment of Miyako Island, the previous listening posts into one, forming Japan's new generation of China electromagnetic detection system so that Japan can right from the Bohai Sea, Yellow Sea south of the Chinese ships effective electromagnetic surveillance. Specifically used for Chinese warships and aircraft communication signal capture and processing of electronic monitoring systems will also be officially opened in 2008.

Under water, to the current Japan's advanced submarine technology, can the formation of China's most realistic intelligence collection capability is extremely powerful, or even by the Japanese media said that this is one of the most powerful intelligence to obtain power, is Japan's unique advantage. In the human means, as early as in 2000, the Japanese military attache stationed in China have increased The limit, the formation of land, sea and air self-defense, three Self-Defense Forces were three official system. From 1999 onwards, the Japanese Embassy in affairs officer with a staff dedicated to intelligence-gathering missions.

"The Central Intelligence Team" under the jurisdiction of four different panel of 10 people, including a group specifically for China, the main task is the development in China "informants", the use of "informants" to collect intelligence on China, but in peacetime, the specialized responsible through "contacts with foreigners," the field "interviews" with local residents and politicians, to gather first-hand information. Last year in October, the Japanese also proposed this year in the United States set up a "permanent liaison office of intelligence," and also the first time in Japan after the war overseas, the establishment of permanent intelligence agencies. Among them, "East Asian group" focus is on China to develop China-based journalists, academics, and private parties, let them join the overseas contingent of Japanese intelligence officers. These people will try to contact with the local staff to establish a broad network of relationships, for the Japanese government Chinese intelligence gathering. In March of this year, Japanese Foreign Minister Taro Aso of Japan had to spend money to buy the original orphans in China and Japan, China Bo-wen to steal secrets regarding the Open, said: "I think the original Bo-wen to be paid depends on intelligence gathering." Shows that Japan is China's intelligence-gathering related to number of areas, everywhere.

Military expert analysis, the Japanese Defense Ministry to spare no effort to gather a variety of Chinese intelligence, especially military intelligence, military concerned about China's every move, the purpose is very clear, that is, a comprehensive and accurate grasp on the basis of China's military deployment to enhance the Japanese intervention in the region the capacity of the situation, in order to build military power fishing sufficient capital.

Gas-cooled nuclear power reactor for bomber aircrafts

Nuclear-powered bomber, is the dream of strategic air forces of the superpowers, because nuclear-powered bomber, a huge driving force, with virtually unlimited range, does not require frequent refueling, its unparalleled tactical advantage, so in the last century, the United States and the former Soviet Union are in in this regard has made a bold attempt. Reactor technology, due to time constraints, the aircraft can not carry hundreds of tons of reactor and protective devices, coupled with the reactor at the time the safety can not guarantee, therefore, these early efforts were not successful. However, the nuclear-powered bomber, a huge range of power and the advantages of military strategist of the brain is not echoed at all times.

As in recent years, advances in reactor technology, reactor core getting smaller and smaller, the structure becomes compact and reasonable, and security also has a tremendous progress, China's air-cooled reactor is in the security and efficiency has made great strides, legends China's nuclear submarines are ready to apply. These technological advances, re-awakened the dream of China’s nuclear-powered bombers.

Take a look at gas-cooled reactor: As China's gas-cooled reactor uses helium gas as working gas, helium is the inert gas, is more a magical properties, it will not be reactor fuel and radioactive exposure arising from secondary radiation, Therefore, the reactor does not require a loop of pipe to conduct a comprehensive radiation protection, thus greatly reducing the area needed protection, radiation protection is limited to the reactor core body itself, which makes the necessary protection of lead-cooled reactors, pressurized water reactor and the geometric metal heap must have been considerably lower weight and volume of the reactor have substantially decreased their use in aviation possible. This is a huge performance advantage, is the other types of reactors can not be compared.

China's gas-cooled reactor using two turbine to heat the reactor is converted into mechanical energy, the first helium gas in the reactor was heated to nearly a thousand degrees, into a high temperature and pressure of the hot helium, these high temperature and pressure of the helium directly into the turbine steam turbine can be 40% of the heat energy into mechanical energy, helium temperature down to 400 ~ 500 degrees; Then, in the temperature of the helium gas into the heat exchanger loop, 80% of the helium heat exchanger circuit in the years, the hot water into a high-temperature saturated steam, steam turbine steam turbine to promote once again the heat into mechanical energy. Transformation allows the two gas-cooled reactor power system's overall thermal efficiency of more than 60%. Turbine steam turbine or compressor can be directly promote the propeller fan, push forward bombers.

Gas-cooled reactors also have drawbacks, that is, the cooling needs of low-temperature helium and compressed, and, helium storage of relatively large volume. For submarines, this is a relatively difficult problem that requires compression before storage and recycling, but for large aircraft, this is not troublesome, low-density helium gas can be a great package to store, due to the low density of helium, Gas storage can significantly offset the buoyancy package weight. As the aircraft usually fly in the stratosphere, temperatures in the stratosphere - 20 to 40 degrees below zero, through the air, can be effectively the waste heat of nuclear power systems for cooling, which is also conducive to nuclear power system in the normal operation of the aircraft.

It can be seen that the current gas-cooled reactor power system weight than aviation jet engines large, but as technology advances, the weight of the gas-cooled reactor control in 100 tons less than can be achieved. At present, large aircraft carrier oil, is often a need for more than 100 tons, such as A-380, 560 Dun take-off weight among the total 200 tons of oil containing more than the weight of jet fuel even more than the weight of nuclear power systems. Moreover, a large number of fuel consumption, not only generates a huge amount of greenhouse gas emissions, but also has turned itself into a huge incendiary bombs made it necessary to increase the number of safety devices, forming a huge waste weight.

In contrast, the advantages of nuclear power was too obvious, and first of all, a huge and sustained energy that allows the aircraft continuously for many days or even months, flying in the sky, this is the biggest advantage of nuclear power. Only lubricants and expendable parts subject to the restrictions and had to return to the ground maintenance and supplies; nuclear power is not greenhouse gas emissions, will not pollute the atmosphere, much more environmentally friendly than oil-powered. Safety, as long as the reactor will be air-cooled rugged enough to do, even if the crash occurred, as long as the reactor is not damaged, would not have a nuclear pollution, helium is the inert gas, much less fire. U.S. nuclear bombs have occurred in accidents falling from an airplane accident, nuclear safety floor, did not explode, so if properly designed, can guarantee that when the reactor in a complete crash. Even in the fighting were hit by a missile, its viability is also stronger than conventional bombers, because the probability of nuclear-powered bomber fire is much lower than conventional bombers.

Comprehensive above, at present, technical, manufacturing, nuclear-powered aircraft have been not too many technical difficulties. The following is the conceptual changes needed and determination. It can be seen that China's aviation engine technology with a large gap between the West, but in the gas-cooled reactors, China's technological level is a leading, if the gas-cooled reactor technology applied to large aircraft areas, will enable China to achieve unprecedented lead. As the international aviation industry, a lot of restrictions on large commercial aircraft, China can first use of nuclear-powered bombers, Zaochu of super-heavy nuclear-powered strategic bombers.

Imagine if China Zaochu nuclear-powered strategic bombers, will have an unprecedented military superiority, anywhere in the world, China's armed can be reached within 24 hours, in the event of war, regardless of where the enemy, the first time for China to nuclear-powered bomber carrying high-powered weapons to reach the incident and conducted a long cruise to deterrence, if necessary, immediately effective air strikes. This is both flexible, but also a powerful force, and will effectively protect the interests of China in the world. Of course, with nuclear-powered bombers, China can not abandon the development of aircraft carriers and amphibious ships, aircraft carriers, may be much greater in order to combat damaged nuclear-powered bombers maintenance.

"Guilty of the powerful Han who, however far they are", at present, this is only a slogan of the mighty, because of the lack of delivery platform for the global projection, even if China deal with the threat around, in the current strategic approach, it is also not only forbear Fa. No aircraft carrier, no ocean-going fleet, there is no long-range bombers, and no overseas bases, so that China worry about everywhere, even those who only allowed a small nation with China’s subject of ridicule, mockery in every possible way, why, because these guys know that China will only verbal protest, Most diplomatic or economic sanctions, and not directly with their bayonets Tong Jin Xin Wo, so they are not afraid.

Once nuclear power could be bombers, hostile to China if China took the lead in condemning the just possible that they are falling, China’s missiles, bombers have thrown their podium. Internationally, the truth is always the strong and the winner side.

Nuclear deterrent patrol bombers can be used to protect China's global traffic arteries are not a threat to other countries, once the recurrence of similar incidents of anti-Chinese, in a matter of hours, nuclear bombers on the enemy's head appears in the enough of these pairs of countries unfriendly to China become scared.
