Give him the raspberry

ESMC of PLA reserve force holds first actual-troop drill

(Source: PLA Daily) 2011-12-02

In late November, an electromagnetic spectrum management and control drill in a complex electromagnetic environment was held at the foot of the Yanshan Mountains.

The officers and men participating in this drill are from the mobile monitoring group of the Electromagnetic Spectrum Management Center (ESMC) under the reserve force of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA). This is also the first time for this center to organize the officers and men in the reserve force to carry out an actual-troop and real-equipment drill on the spectrum management and control in a complex electromagnetic environment since its establishment.

Larded with military skill training and ideological and political education, this drill embraces such training subjects as the establishment of fundamental command post, calling-out and assembling of personnel and equipment, urgent setting-up of network of wireless equipment, and direction-finding and positioning of interfering signals.

The ESMC of the PLA reserve force is the PLA’s first organic high-technology reserve unit within the national industrial system. This drill with the actual combat background is an important practice to further promote the demand for the military-civilian integrated development in the field of radio, accumulating experience for the PLA’s wartime capacity for electromagnetic spectrum management and control.
