Abstract : Chinese electronic warfare has a recorded beginning in February of 1931. Before that war, personnel on our side maintained intercept of enemy stations for more than twenty days, grasping the enemy points of departure, times, routes, and causing our forces to achieve a very brilliant victory. Praise and commendation were received from Committee Member Mao and Commander in Chief Zhu. During the more than thirty years of history from 1931 to 1965, this is the breeding period of Chinese electronic warfare. During the entire phase, it is possible to make use of the six characters-- 'analysis, renovation, system (illegible)'--in order to summarize the development of the specialty in question. There were no electronic countermeasures personnel in the early period. With study and analysis on the one hand and renovation of captured Japanese and U.S. intercept, reconnaissance, and jamming equipment on the other--eager to meet the needs of war--this equipment was put to new uses in battle. In application, there was familiarization, mastery, and study. In particular, during the ten or so years after liberation, stress was placed on the analysis of electronic countermeasures equipment on the U.S. P2V- 7 (illegible) low altitude reconnaissance aircraft and the U-2 high altitude reconnaissance aircraft as well as the Soviet built cp6-l radar reconnaissance machine and cp6-5 radar jammer, communications reconnaissance, jamming devices, pulse analyzers, and so on, and so on. At the same time as this, a number of pieces of airborne, ground, and submarine borne reconnaissance and jamming equipment were manufactured in imitation. Characteristics of equipment in this period of time were narrow frequency bands, bad precision, and strong directional characteristics. Primary uses were for unit combat training.
