India get Missile Defence system

In the light of India announcing Ballistic Missile Defence system to protect India’s security, my hair-raising concern goes to the recent US reports on Chinese backdoors in its military.

This information extracted from two recent news reports, is to request a re-checking of components to make sure that indigenous parts, and no Chinese electronic parts are finds entry to our Military.

This year, US reported a flood of bogus military parts (electronic parts) from China discovered in missiles and other weapons, American-made fighter jets, transport planes. A 14-month US Congressional investigation uncovered 1,800 cases of counterfeit electronic components for American military equipment, in total involving over one million bogus parts. The investigators discovered fake electronic components in all kinds of military equipment, including: targeting systems for helicopter-launched hellfire missiles; instrument panels of military cargo planes; mission computers for interceptor rockets and in crucial ice-detection sensors for naval patrol aircraft.

The investigation report showed concern that a failure of the fake parts could have caused missiles to go haywire, or left military transport pilots staring at blank instrument panels in mid-flight. As a result of this investigation, the US recently passed tough new laws aimed at cracking down on military counterfeiters, and setting new purchasing rules for defence contractors. The Canadian Government has ignored the US Governments’ warnings.

According to the Joseph Farah’s G2 Bulletin, the Chinese companies apparently have a covert capability to remotely access communications technology sold to the United States and other Western countries and could “disable a country’s telecommunications infrastructure before a military engagement.

As per the report the Chinese firm Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd., which U.S. intelligence sources say has direct links to the Chinese government and the People’s Liberation Army. These sources assert that Huawei and other Chinese telecommunications firms such as ZTE Corp. have “electronic backdoors” to telecommunications technology sold to the U.S. and other countries.

The electronic backdoor capability reportedly could allow the Chinese government through Huawei and ZTE to access information traveling through telecommunications networks or even sabotage electronic devices. With this capability, China would be in a position to sabotage critical U.S. weapons systems and sensitive cyber sites and could include intelligence or systems used by defense contractors doing work on behalf of the U.S. government.
