In the ongoing technological arms race, China has surged ahead of the United States in the realm of advanced sensor technologies for defense, according to a comprehensive report by the Australian Strategic Policy Institute (ASPI).
The recent report’s assessment reveals that China’s supremacy in critical sensor technologies raises concerns for the United States and its allies, urging them to redouble their efforts in research and development (R&D) to maintain a competitive edge.
China’s Technological Advancements
The ASPI report identifies China’s lead in ten pivotal technology areas, underscoring its dominance in the field. Among these areas, inertial navigation systems stand out as crucial components, especially when global positioning systems (GPS) are vulnerable to jamming and spoofing attacks.
