    If the metaphor he used is anything to go on, is he subtly suggesting that is it a SAM with lateral range up to at least 1000km? That's an insanely long range.

    Sounds more like they are talking about ABM interceptors here.

    For exo atmosphere intercepts, range becomes largely meaningless, and the main limiting factor is targeting.

    The 1000 km altitude suggests that this is a successor or a production variant of the Dong Neng series ASAT/ICBM interceptors.

    What's more interesting is this:
    Wow, it seems that engineering school life extends beyond even engineering school.

    "For example, we worked 10 consecutive days and slept little each day to detect and resolve one extremely rare abnormality because all of us are aware that our nation's air-defense networks can only be reliable if we are meticulous and responsible toward our work,"

    China should really stop promoting extreme overworking as a sign of progressiveness and determination. Guolaosi have killed more skilled and experienced works and cause substantial mistake and oversight then I would care count. Plus it does not increase productivity by much anyway.

    Such projects takes years to complete, so it is not so much a mad race to the end but more a "complete it with the least amount of post mistake as possible".
    There is no such thing as a harmonious relationship between "working consecutive days & lack of sleep + meticulous and responsability".

    Which is a good point.

    But on the other hand, this is engineering geek culture, this kind of work for them represents both an enormous focus of pride and obsession, with great weight on obsession.

    There is a thing as a passion, and there is obsession. Suffice to say that tempered passion is often much more productive then rampant obsession. And it is not like the culture finds it's roots solely in geek culture as well. Japan is still suffering from constant karoshi in no small part due to the inbred mentality that loyalty to a company trumps above all else including wellbeing and health.
    Not to say that these folks should start walking out the door the moment their boss gives them a short shriff. But their society should realize that encouraging near slave like labour is as far away from "productive work place" as the Sun is from Pluto.

    But you've also got to understand that they are pressured by the requirements and expectations of the military tender. It's not just Chinese who "overwork", but your point still stands.
