Israel-China Military Transfers
As the Commission noted in its 2002 report, Israel was second
only to Russia as a weapons system provider to China and as a
conduit for sophisticated military technology. The Commission continues
to be concerned over Israeli transfers of U.S.-origin technology
According to a December 15, 2003, Defense News story, ï¿½ï¿½Israelï¿½s MOD
(Ministry of Defense) recently granted more than a dozen licenses
for Israeli firms to market specific products and services in China,
industry officials here said. Israeli-developed systems proposed for
sale to Chinaï¿½s Peopleï¿½s Liberation Army include the Tavor personal
assault weapon, pilot training systems, advanced communication
and surveillance gear, and a range of unmanned aerial vehicles.ï¿½ï¿½
The Defense Department reports that Israel has sold a number
of HARPY unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) to China.40 The PLA
has apparently integrated the HARPY into its operational forces,
since they appeared in PLA exercises during 2002. The HARPY is
designed to detect, attack, and destroy radar emitters. These systems
pose a significant threat to various critical military C4ISR facilities
on Taiwan as well as to U.S. operational forces operating in
the region. The UAV has a range of about five hundred kilometers
and contains a high-explosive warhead.41
