Zeng Weihua, director of an information support base under the General Staff Headquarters (GSH) of the Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA), still clearly remembered the scene in an exercise of the PLA several years ago where more than a dozen command terminals of various systems of various services were placed in front of the on-site commanding leaders of the PLA general headquarters/departments, but none of them got interconnected.

However, with years of hard chasing, the PLA has achieved great breakthrough in command information system. For example, in last two years, the troop units of the PLA have been equipped with the integrated command information system, through which the weaponry platforms of the armed forces are aggregated into a combat system initially possessing the capability of systematic operation to interconnect with the information-based battlefield.

A combat drill on maritime joint defense of the Jinan Military Area Command (MAC) of the PLA was unveiled in October of 2011,and the integrated command information system made its debut in this theater-level joint operation of the three services and showed great power.

Nevertheless, being clear-headed is still vital at this moment. "There is no denying that the information construction of the PLA has shown a thriving momentum of development, but we still have a long way to go to catch up with the developed countries," said Liu Nu, director of an information research institute under the GSH of the PLA.
