Japan Plans Air Defense Net Expansion

Tokyo-Japan plans to expand and augment its air defense network over the next five years as the island nation begins to shoulder a greater share of the burden of its defense. Just how far the Japanese will progress in implementing current plans during their fourth defense buildup program, a five-year commitment for the nation’s defense forces, depends upon the final outcome of budget requests currently undergoing severe scrutiny by the Finance Ministry.

New Programs Entering Production Stage

Tokyo—Japanese aerospace industry is honing its technical and state-of-the-art capabilities on a number of advanced aircraft programs now entering the production stage. The projects represent the latest steps in the evolution of an industry that had to begin virtually from scratch in the early 1950s following its dissolution, loss of facilities and technical personnel at the conclusion of World War 2.

Japan Pushes Airways Modernization Plan

Tokyo—Ambitious attempt to modernize Japanese airways will be accelerated sharply during the coming months in the wake of last summer’s disastrous mid-air collision that claimed 162 lives (see p. 47). The effort was already in the first year of a scheduled five-year modernization plan when the Ministry of Transport’s Civil Aviation Bureau (CAB), reacting to the national shock from the accident, one other fatal crash and a rash of widely-reported “near misses,” decided to squeeze five years of system improvement into three.
