Chinese space engineers have begun to test technologies that they hope will help to make their carrier rockets smarter. CASC's engineers will upgrade computers and control systems on rockets to enable them to monitor flight conditions and recalculate and correct their flight if necessary. In addition, researchers at the academy's Beijing Aerospace Automatic Control Institute are trying to give the rockets learning capabilities. The attempt, if successful, will allow rockets to proactively adapt to sophisticated environments and emergencies so as to ensure the better completion of tasks.
