CASI Quarterly update
#1 for 2021
Friends of CASI,
As we welcome Spring, we’d like to update you on CASI’s publications, research, and activities for 2021 so far.
This epic volume is the culmination of a lifetime dedicated to the study of the PLA Air Force. The book is nearly 500 pages long and covers history, doctrine, organization, personnel, education, training, diplomacy, and more across the 70 years of the PLAAF’s existence. The book will be available in PDF from our website, and in printed form by request. Both PDF and requests for hard copies are available at: https://www.airuniversity.af.edu/CASI/CASI-Publications/
“In Their Own Words” – Translations of PRC materials
CASI has started a new project we are calling "In Their Own Words". The CCP and the PLA think of Mandarin characters as their first cipher, their first line of defense, in keeping their thoughts and ideas concealed from the west. CASI is helping English speaking audiences in accessing these documents. With a mix of expert human inputs and machine translation, CASI will be making translations of original Chinese documents available as we get them completed. We would like to thank our 大哥 (our Big Brother) team at the China Maritime Studies Institute, the Project Everest team, and the CASI team at BluePath Labs, for all of their contributions to this effort.
Support to the Warfighter
Engagement and Outreach
In addition to providing support to Air Force staff, CASI has had another busy quarter supporting the USAF and the DoD, as well as our allies, partners, and friends. CASI:
CASI continues its close relationship and holds regular meetings with the HAF and SAF representatives, making sure that our research is policy and plans relevant.
We have selected someone for our position here in D.C. and as soon as all the paperwork is complete, we will certainly publicize who will be joining us.
We have several positions at Air University open. If you, or anyone you know, is interested, please get in touch with us.
