The US Department of Homeland Security issued an alert warning on Monday that Chinese-made drones may be se

nding sensitive flight data back to their manufacturers in China, where it can be accessed by the government there.

According to a report by CNN, the alert warns companies and organizations that the US gov

ernment has “strong concerns about any technology product that takes American data into the territory of an au

thoritarian state that permits its intelligence services to have unfettered access to that data.”

The report does not name any specific manufacturers, but nearly 80 percent of the

drones used in the US and Canada come from DJI, according to industry analysis.

President Xi inspects high-tech companyL MAG Rare-Earth

President Xi Jinping inspected a company that manufactures high-tech magnetic m

aterials as he kicked off an inspection trip to East China’s Jiangxi province on Monday.

Xi learned about the business operations of the JL MAG Rare-Earth Co Ltd, based in Ganzhou, which speciali

zes in rare earth permanent magnetic materials, as well as the development of the rare earth sector in the city.

Ren Zhengfei, founder and CEO of Huawei, said on Tuesday that the US governm

ent’s 90-day extension “doesn’t mean much”, adding that the company was ready to deal with the ban.

Ren’s comments came after the US Commerce Department said on Monday that it gave Hu

awei a 90-day license to purchase US technologies to maintain existing networks and provide software upd

ates to existing Huawei handsets. That marks a delay of the ban on US technology exports to Huawei.

industrial internet and the internet of vehicles are am

Zhang called for accelerated efforts to set standards in key areas, including 5G, to expedit

e the commercialization of this forefront technology and bolster the nation’s core competitiveness.

Major Chinese smartphone maker Huawei Technologies Co has a

expected to hit the market in June, despite challenges involving the United States.

China will offer customized data services for disaster prevention throug

h its Fengyun meteorological satellites for more countries along the Belt and Road, said a

senior official of the China Meteorological Administration’s National Satellite Meteorological Center.

The services will be provided based on the results of a survey of 81 countries. By the end

of April, 22 countries, including Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iran, Russia, Libya and Sudan, had responded to the survey.

All of the respondents said they wanted to install the application software platforms

of the Fengyun satellites for weather forecasting, as well as climate and environment monitoring.

They also requested a range of services, especially in monitoring rainf

all, droughts, dust storms, heavy fog and lightning, in addition to training courses on F

engyun meteorological satellite data analysis, remote-sensing applications and data collection.

According to the administration, the mechanism can switch the on-duty satellite to a quick-scan mode focusing on areas required by users when they are hit by disasters.

“During disasters, Fengyun satellites can scan as often as every five or six minutes. The China Meteo

rological Administration could send users cloud images and products via satellites and public clouds,” Wei said.

For example, in March, China provided a remote-sensing monitor repo

rt on flooding in Iran via Fengyun. The analysis estimated the coverage and ter

rain characteristics of the flooded area, which greatly assisted the country’s evacuation efforts.

China has launched 17 Fengyun series meteorological satellites, of which seven are currently operational.

The World Meteorological Organization has included China’s Fengyun serie

s of meteorological satellites as a major element of its global Earth observation system.

The phone call took place days after the US Commerce Dep

artment announced on Wednesday it will add telecommunications eq

bars the company from buying US technology without government approval due to security concerns.

On the same day, US President Donald Trump signed an executive order that bars US companies fr

om using telecom equipment from manufacturers considered a national security risk, without mentioning Huawei by name.

Such moves, as well as the increase of tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese goods earlier this m

HiSilicon, which was founded in 2004, has designed chip

ipsets like Kirin, which has been used in Huawei’s high-end smartphones. In addition to server chips, th

e company has also developed chips for base stations, basebands and chipsets powered by artificial intelligence.

“From chips to its self-developed operating system, Huawei has

long been preparing for independent research and development in core technologies. It has the abil

ity to adjust to changes in the global market,” said Xiang Ligang, director-general of the Information Consumption Alliance.

Huawei has also made preparations with core chipsets. Existing s

tocks are thought to provide the company with a buffer of six months to a year, he said.
