Some Chinese supercomputers were included in the U.S. commerce blacklist after the United States officials discovered that they are tracking and collecting sensitive information from Americans and other U.S. agencies. They could also be targeting the U.S. Air Force, U.S. Navy, U.S. Military Force, and more.
The U.S. Commerce Department discovered seven Chinese supercomputers, adding them to the U.S. economic blacklist because of the national security concerns they could pose. Here are the exact Chinese tech entities that you should be aware of;
- Tianjin Phytium Information Technology
- the National Supercomputing Center Jinan
- the National Supercomputing Center Shenzhen
- the National Supercomputing Center Wuxi
- Shanghai High-Performance Integrated Circuit Design Center
- Sunway Microelectronics
- the National Supercomputing Center Zhengzhou
Beware of these Chinese supercomputers
The U.S. official said that the Chinese supercomputers were accused of collecting sensitive info and other details from various U.S. agencies. They claimed that these Chinese technologies are doing this so that they could save their dying military modernization efforts.
On the other hand, the American officials also explained that they could be doing this so that they could get the blueprints of various U.S. defense agencies that could be used to copycat war weapons. There’s a high chance that this could happen since China already has some history of stealing ideas and data from the U.S. to create their own war defense weapons such as tanks, fighter jets, machine guns, missiles, and more.
Another thing that makes these Chinese supercomputers alarming is that the U.S. officials believed that they are connected to the People’s Republic of China. They claimed that these devices are being used to collect sensitive info on behalf of the PLA Army.
However, the Chinese government denied the accusation against their advanced computers.
China previously copied some other countries’ aircraft
The accusations against China’s advanced computers could be true since this Asian country is well known for copying any product that they could find essential. Here are the following that you should know;
- Shenyang J-31 (Copied U.S. F-35)
- FC-1 Xiaolong (Copied Soviet MiG-21)
- Chengdu J-20 (Copied U.S. F-22 Raptor)
- Chengdu J-10 (Copied U.S. F-16)
- Shenyang J-15 (Copied Russian Sukhoi Su-33)
- CASC Caihong-4 (Copied U.S. MQ-9 Reaper)
- Shenyang J-11/16 (Copied Russian Sukhoi Su-27)
These Chinese fighter jets clearly show that China could likely use their advanced computers to create more copycat war airplanes that they can use to protect their country against sudden attacks. However, some of them still have flaws and have less efficient features compared to the ones they copied from.
The new issue just shows that China’s computers and other advanced devices of this Asian country can’t be trusted. On the other hand, the Chinese government is also fishy itself. Why? Because it is currently having territorial issues with Taiwan and the Philippines. The latest issue that China is facing currently takes place in the Philippines’ Julian Felipe Reef. Right now, U.S. already made a statement that it will do something about the Chinese vessels if they attack the Philippines’ armed forces.
