Dean Cheng, Senior Research Fellow at the Heritage Foundation’s Asian Studies Center, will discuss China’s growing space program at the 18th Annual International Mars Society Convention, August 13-16, 2015 at the Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C. Mr. Cheng specializes in China's military and foreign policy, in particular its relationship with the rest of Asia and with the United States. In addition, Mr. Cheng has written extensively on China's military doctrine, technological implications of its space program and "dual use" issues associated with the communist nation's industrial and scientific infrastructure. He previously worked for 13 years as a senior analyst, first with Science Applications International Corp. (SAIC), the Fortune 500 specialist in defense and homeland security, and then with the China Studies division of the Center for Naval Analyses, the federally funded research institute. Before entering the private sector, Mr. Cheng studied China's defense-industrial complex for a congressional agency, the Office of Technology Assessment, as an analyst in the International Security and Space Program.
