The mission of CASI is to advance understanding of the capabilities, development, operating concepts, strategy, doctrine, personnel, organization, and limitations of China's aerospace forces, which include: the PLA Air Force (PLAAF); PLA Naval Aviation (PLAN Aviation); PLA Rocket Force (PLARF); the Strategic Support Force (PLASSF), primarily space and cyber; the civilian and commercial infrastructure that supports the above.  As CASI continues to grow to our full end strength for personnel, we will continue to develop and expand our research programs to meet this wide array of topics.  If you have an idea for a topic, or have an article you would like to write for CASI on one of these topics, please see our CASI Associates page for more details.
