March 23, 2018: In a latest development, Pakistan has procured a powerful missile tracking system from China in an unprecedented deal which would reportedly speed up the Pakistani military’s development of multi-warhead missiles.

While no details were available on how much Pakistan paid for this missile tracking system, Zheng Mengwei, a researcher with the state-run Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) Institute of Optics and Electronics in Chengdu, Sichuan province, confirmed to the Hong Kong-based South China Morning Post that Pakistan had bought a highly sophisticated, large-scale optical tracking and measurement system from China.
“We simply gave them a pair of eyes. They can use them to look at whatever they want to see, even the Moon,” he said.
Mr. Zheng said he could not elaborate on the technology nor where in Pakistan it was being used as it involved the country’s defence interests.
He, however, said that the Pakistani military recently deployed the Chinese-made system “at a firing range” for use in testing and developing new missiles.
China was the first country to export such sensitive equipment to Pakistan, the CAS said.
An optical system is a critical component in missile testing. It usually comes with a pair of high-performance telescopes equipped with a laser ranger, high-speed camera, infrared detector and a centralized computer system that automatically captures and follows moving targets. The device records high-resolution images of a missile's departure from its launcher, stage separation, tail flame and, after the missile re-enters atmosphere, the trajectory of the warheads it releases.
