"Everything that Flies"

CASI's mission 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 Army Aviation; PLA Rocket Force (PLARF); the Strategic Support Force (PLASSF), primarily space and cyber; the civilian and commercial infrastructure that supports the above.

CASI supports the Secretary, Chief of Staff, and other senior leaders of the U.S. Air Force.  CASI provides expert research and analysis supporting decision and policy makers in the Department of Defense and across the U.S. government.  CASI can support the full range of units and organizations across the USAF and the DoD. CASI accomplishes its mission through conducting the following activities:  

  • CASI primarily conducts open-source native-language research supporting its five main topic areas. 
  • CASI conducts conferences, workshops, roundtables, subject matter expert panels, and senior leader discussions to further its mission.  CASI personnel attend such events, government, academic, and public, in support of its research and outreach efforts.
  • CASI publishes research findings and papers, journal articles, monographs, and edited volumes for both public and government-only distribution as appropriate. 
  • CASI establishes and maintains institutional relationships with organizations and institutions in the PLA, the PRC writ large, and with partners and allies involved in the region.
  • CASI maintains the ability to support senior leaders and policy decision makers across the full spectrum of topics and projects at all levels, related to Chinese aerospace.

CASI supports the U.S. Defense Department and the China research community write-large by providing high quality, unclassified research on Chinese aerospace developments in the context of U.S. strategic imperatives in the Asia-Pacific region. Primarily focused on China’s Military Air, Space, and Missile Forces, CASI capitalizes on publicly available native language resources to gain insights as to how the Chinese speak to and among one another on these topics.
