Chinese Military to focus on the integration and development of mechanization, informationization and intelligence
Adhere to the integration and development of mechanization, informationization and intelligence
——Conscientiously study, publicize and implement the spirit of the 20th National Congress of the Communist Party of China

The report of the 20th National Congress of the Communist Party of China emphasized that we should adhere to the integrated development of mechanization, informationization and intelligence. This important exposition endows the modernization of national defense and the armed forces with new connotations of the times, and further points out the development direction and path for accelerating the modernization of national defense and the armed forces. We must seize the opportunity, based on the status quo, insist on promoting the integrated development of mechanization, informationization and intelligence with systematic thinking, coordinate the development of various fields, especially key areas, realize the positive interaction of the three, and promote the overall improvement of national defense and military modernization.
Engels pointed out: “Human beings fight in the same way as they produce.” At present, the new military revolution in the world is developing rapidly, the degree of informatization in modern warfare is constantly improving, and the characteristics of intelligence are becoming increasingly apparent. Especially under the influence of the new round of scientific and technological revolution, the concepts, elements and methods of winning war are undergoing major changes. Judging from the recent local wars and armed conflicts in the world, a large number of high-tech weapons and equipment have been used in actual combat, and intelligent technology, unmanned equipment, and data information have become new growth points for combat effectiveness. In the face of increasingly fierce military competition, only by standing at the forefront of war and technology, and adhering to the integration of mechanization, information, and intelligence, can we seize the opportunity and win the initiative in military strategic competition.
“Everything must come, and it is a matter of course.” Mechanization, informatization, and intelligence are superimposed, interpenetrated, and mutually supported. Among them, mechanization is the material basis and carrier for the development of informatization and intelligence; informatization plays a connecting role between mechanization and intelligence; intelligence represents advanced combat effectiveness and is the development direction of future military construction. Without the previous “transformation” as the premise and foundation, there would be no emergence and development of the latter “transformation”.
Adhering to the integration and development of mechanization, informationization and intelligence is in line with the reality of our military construction and development, and is the only way for the modernization of national defense and the military in the future. Our army has basically achieved mechanization, and the construction of informatization has made significant progress but has not yet been completed. If the intelligentization is carried out after completing the informatization step by step, it will open up a new generation gap with the armed forces of developed countries; if the construction focus is fully shifted to intelligentization, it is unrealistic to expect to be in place in one step.
Science and technology are the core combat capability and the most active and revolutionary factor in military development. The key to adhering to the integrated development of mechanization, informationization and intelligence lies in promoting technological innovation. We should vigorously implement the strategy of strengthening the army through science and technology, actively promote self-reliance and self-improvement in high-level science and technology, accelerate the breakthrough of key core technologies, accelerate the development of strategic, cutting-edge, and disruptive technologies, and realize the transformation from following and running to leading and running as soon as possible. Persist in seeking combat effectiveness from scientific and technological innovation, improve scientific and technological cognition, innovation, and application capabilities, speed up the resolution of “stuck neck” problems, and firmly grasp the lifeline of our army’s development in our own hands.
Wars change with the times, and preparations for wars should not be conservative or rigid. To promote war preparations in the new era, we must focus on winning the new requirements of information-based and intelligent warfare. The construction of our army’s combat effectiveness has accelerated transformation, overall reshaping, and leapfrog development to ensure that it can attack and defend freely and win opportunities in future wars.

黨的二十大報告強調，要堅持機械化、信息化、智能化融合發展。 這一重要論述賦予了國防和軍隊現代化建設新的時代內涵，進一步為加快推進國防和軍隊現代化建設指明了發展方向和路徑。 我們要抓住機遇，立足現狀，堅持以系統思維推進機械化、信息化、智能化融合發展，統籌各領域特別是重點領域發展，實現三者良性互動，促進 國防和軍隊現代化建設全面加強。
恩格斯指出：“人類以生產的方式進行鬥爭”。 當前，世界新軍事革命快速發展，現代戰爭信息化程度不斷提高，智能化特徵日益明顯。 特別是在新一輪科技革命的影響下，打贏戰爭的觀念、要素和方式正在發生重大變化。 從近期全球發生的局部戰爭和武裝衝突來看，大量高科技武器裝備投入實戰，智能技術、無人裝備、數據信息等成為戰鬥力新的增長點。 面對日益激烈的軍事競爭，只有站在戰爭和科技的前沿，堅持機械化、信息化、智能化融合，才能搶占先機，贏得軍事戰略競爭的主動權。
“凡事必來，順理成章。” 機械化、信息化、智能化相互疊加、相互滲透、相互支撐。 其中，機械化是信息化、智能化發展的物質基礎和載體； 信息化在機械化和智能化之間起著承上啟下的作用； 智能化代表著先進的戰鬥力，是未來軍隊建設的發展方向。 沒有前一個“轉化”作為前提和基礎，就沒有後一個“轉化”的產生和發展。
堅持機械化、信息化、智能化融合發展，符合我軍建設發展實際，是未來國防和軍隊現代化建設的必由之路。 我軍基本實現機械化，信息化建設取得重大進展但尚未完成。 如果在逐步完成信息化後進行智能化，將與發達國家軍隊拉開新的代溝； 如果建設重心全面轉向智能化，指望一步到位是不現實的。
科技是核心作戰能力，是軍隊發展中最活躍、最具革命性的因素。 堅持機械化、信息化、智能化融合發展，關鍵在於推進科技創新。 大力實施科技強軍戰略，積極推進高水平科技自立自強，加快突破關鍵核心技術，加快發展戰略性、前沿性、 和顛覆性技術，盡快實現從跟隨跑向引領跑的轉變。 堅持從科技創新中求戰鬥力，提昇科技認知、創新和應用能力，加快化解“卡脖子”問題，把我軍發展的生命線牢牢掌握在自己手中。
戰爭隨著時代的變化而變化，戰爭準備不能保守僵化。 推進新時代備戰，必須圍繞打贏信息化、智能化戰爭新要求。 我軍戰鬥力建設加快轉型、全面重塑、跨越發展，確保攻守自如，在未來戰爭中贏得先機。
