According to the officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity, the Air Sea Battle Concept — a Pentagon program to develop new weapons and capabilities to counter China’s military buildup — was a tightly guarded secret. …

The Chinese intelligence and influence targeting of the Air Sea Battle Concept is being led by Beijing’s military intelligence service, known as the Second Department of the People’s Liberation Army, or 2PLA. In 2010, that service began an aggressive spying program to learn about the Air Sea Battle program after its existence was publicly disclosed by a think tank.
