Military science information facing new requirements of military and defense tasks

Today, military and defense tasks and the mission of Homeland protection have seen new developments, setting increasingly high requirements for the military science information branch. Amid the complex and unpredictable evolutions of the world and regional situation coupled with the robust development of science and technology in military field, there have emerged various new kinds of high-tech weapons changing method of war, combat and tactics. Furthermore, there have been new military doctrines totally different from those in the previous liberation wars.
