As one of the newest branches of the People’s Liberation Army (PLA), analysts at The Intelligence Ledger have been able to piece together a coherent, albeit incomplete understanding of the inner-workings and missions of the People’s Liberation Army Strategic Support Force (PLASSF). The PLASSF aims to play a key role in the development of space, electromagnetic, and electronic warfare capabilities for the armed forces of the People’s Republic of China (PRC). Thus far, two main objectives have emerged as central tenets of the organization’s doctrine: (1) the execution of information operations in the space, cyberspace, psychological warfare, and electromagnetic warfare domains and (2) information support for the joint force’s communication, PNT, intelligence, and space capabilities.
