>From Paris Intelligence Online in English 03 Feb 11, the article
“Chinese Army Appoints Woman as Head of Key Geospatial Intelligence
Program” describes Sun Jinyun, one of the rare women to reach the rank
of general in the People's Liberation Army (PLA), who now heads the
key sector of geospatial intelligence at the PLA's 2nd Department, the
Qingbaobu.  Of interest is the note that, “ In 2008, the Shenzhou 7
spacecraft put several micro-FSAT intelligence satellites into orbit,
which are now used by the PLA.”

Is this already common knowledge?
