Institute denies nation is PAC-3 tech supplier

TAIPEI--The Chung-Shan Institute of Science and Technology (CSIST) on Monday denied a news report that said a key technology used in the U.S.-made Patriot Advanced Capability-3 (PAC-3) anti-missile system originated from Taiwan.

In a front-page lead story published Monday, the Liberty Times cited an unidentified senior military official as saying that a Taiwanese company with the high-speed digital signal processing technology is one of many suppliers of the PAC-3 missile program.

The technology was developed by the CSIST, the primary research and development unit of the Ministry of National Defense, and transferred to the private company, the paper said.

Since acquiring the technology, the company has received orders worth NT$800 million and obtained the certification of American defense contractors Lockheed Martin and Raytheon Company to become a supplier for the PAC-3 missile program, according to the paper.

In a statement, however, the CSIST said the paper's report was "untrue." The institute also said it knew nothing that was reported in the daily newspaper.
