CASI Periodicals Project Published Oct. 12, 2017 The Chinese Military Periodicals Database Consulting Project will leverage open source native language (simplified Mandarin Chinese) periodicals to catalog, research, and provide a better understanding of Chinese Aerospace activities. This shall include, but is not limited to, the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) Air Force (PLAAF), the PLA Navy (PLAN) Naval Aviation, the PLA Rocket Force (PLARF)(formerly known as the 2nd Artillery), and the PLA Strategic Support Force. The project will build a comprehensive database including publication information; author information; key words, units, and locations. Once this project is fully underway, CASI intends to make the database open to its Associates and other interested parties via a secure credentialed web-based platform. CASI has partnered with BluePath Labs, a SBA Certified 8(a) and Service Disabled Veteran Owned consulting firm (8(a)/SDVOSB) based in Washington D.C., to develop this project for the CASI COI.
