The following is based on a translation of a report in Chinese media:

The PLA Daily published a report on China’s active defence by diversion and induced explosion of enemy warheads and bombs before they hit their targets.

The information was provided by Major General Qin Youquan, an expert on informationalised defence engineering of the Third Engineer Scientific Research Institute of PLA General Staff Department.

The report provides little information about China’s advanced integrated defence technology to neutralise enemy precision-guided weapons but makes known what China is developing in its active defence.

It says that in modern informationalised war, the key technology for territorial defence is entirely unconventional and that China has already begun to develop anti-satellite weapons, high-end anti-missile weapons, aerospace aircraft and space war flying vehicles.

In such key technology, emphasis is placed on the diversion and induced explosion technology for super low and short-range defence that neutralises precision-guided weapons with resourceful measures of hiding, deceiving and attacking.
