In the US Congress are concerned about the success of China in space

Beijing’s expansion of manufacturing investment and research related to space technology should not be left unanswered by the United States. RIA News expert opinion voiced in the US Congress.

Thus, Congressman Doug Lambourne said that “China’s satellite industry is growing at an alarming rate” - over the past 2, 40 spacecraft have been built at factories in the PRC.

According to Dina Cheng, an expert at the Center for Asian Studies, Beijing “is actively occupying the niche of cheap satellites.”

As a result, countries such as "Nigeria, Bolivia and Venezuela can buy Chinese devices at low prices that no other manufacturer can offer." This state of affairs “threatens the positions of the American company Boeing in the global satellite communications market,” said Cheng.

He stressed that earlier Beijing had focused on “the legal and illegal acquisition of technology,” but now the Chinese authorities are actively investing in their own developments. This, according to the expert, “will not only allow China to reduce the backlog of foreign competitors, but also provide an opportunity to set the tone for the technological race.”

At the same time, Congresswoman Alice Stefanik noted that at present it is impossible to say that the technological domination of the PRC is a foregone conclusion. However, "Beijing's achievements should reflect on the increase in US defense spending."

Earlier it was reported that China plans to launch 2018 more than ten Bedou-3 satellites to form a global navigation system, which will consist of 35 spacecraft. This will turn the PRC into the third country after Russia and the United States in the world with its own similar system.

      Not in the same place it is crystal clear: "This state of affairs" threatens the position of the American company Boeing in the global satellite communications market "
      and “Beijing’s accomplishments should reflect an increase in US defense spending.”

      Nothing new. Boeing and the military-industrial complex want money.

    should not go unanswered from the United States
    What, impose severe sanctions or something else come up with? Congress is always concerned that it does not fit into the framework of their dreams - the United States should own everything and manage everything.

      China, I think this is garbage, with such resources. But North Korea is really a breakthrough of the century. With such scarce resources and brains, even if they helped them in something, they rushed forward. Nevertheless, communism is a breakthrough model of the development of society.

        do not praise North Korea so much. most live there not very sweetly.
        more than half of the country's population does not have a regular supply of hot water, there is no constant supply of electricity. , Transport with an engine is mainly only among the elite, enterprises and the army. Private owners do not even have mopeds. You can go on, but I think that’s enough. This is the price for the mobilization system of existence that you liked so much. Concepts such as modernization, development, and scientific and technical progress are almost absent.

    I feel sorry for the United States - everyone threatens them, everyone worries them, they always go anxious, neither fall asleep, nor rest, threat after threat. And they can only bomb and impose sanctions against those whom they failed to bomb.

    Do the villains have something there, again, sharing the budget orange?
    China in space scored on everyone, stole what he could, and moved his own way. Unlike us. We leaked all life support technologies, and not only for 30 kopecks, and we are very proud of the ISS. With this tin can what to do, it is not clear, further in general darkness, the companions are drowning, like Gerasim Mu-mu. And the whole industry seems to be mu-mu.

    While the United States is “butting” with Russia, China is silently pumping its muscles.
    For the United States, there is a dilemma with whom to "make friends" against the third, since the two, of course, cannot be mastered.

      That's just the campaign "fools" to be friends with the United States against anyone else - have already ended tongue . These "boys" have been "screaming Wolves" for so long and long - even the very sound of their voice instinctively convinces ALL to stay away. And soon, "maybe they will beat and maybe with their feet." good

      Even the priests did not help with water. Choked when on the news I saw the rocket coverage and the statement of the priest that after that the rockets will stop falling. Then the priest and crept unnoticed.
