Beijing Gets Voice Data from Plane

Tuesday, 15 May 2001 12:00 AM

Chinese government officials first learned of the identification technique after some 100 intelligence technicians from Beijing were sent to study the craft on Hainan Island, where the EP-3E has been stranded.

Defense officials with access to classified reports said the Chinese did not know about the U.S. intelligence community's ability to recognize individual voices from intercepted communications until after they began studying the EP-3E and its equipment, The Times said.

Much of the equipment on the aircraft was destroyed by the crew after the collision. However, the Chinese obtained a cache of classified documents, officials said.

The collected information is expected to make it more difficult for special U.S. planes, ships and satellites to gather data on Chinese political and military targets, Pentagon officials said.
