In the current “Stride-2009” military exercise, China’s Campus Satellite Navigation and Positioning System will play an important role, reported Chinese Economy. In past exercises, there were quite a few incidents of information leakage due to communicating via non-secure methods, such as mobile phone or maritime satellite. The Campus system has resolved the communication security issue to a certain extent. Besides sending instant messages, it will also be used for time servicing and positioning.
The PLA’s general departments also set specific requirements on the electronic-magnetic environment and application of testing of new equipments. A set of self-developed new arms, such as the psychological operation team’s loud-voice broadcasting vehicle, will be tested in the field.
