Maritime direction is the main direction that the strong enemy implements strategic containment on China. As the US defense strategy returns to great power competition, the means to contain China are innovating, especially its increasing intensity and frequency of pressure on China in maritime direction. This paper makes a comprehensive analysis of China’s maritime air security situation by using the SWOT method. It is concluded that the strengths are embodied in the joint operational command system, national defense mobilization ability, and the installation of new air defense weapons, etc; the weaknesses are reflected on the lag of battlefield construction and the poor ability of early warning, detection, interception and strike capability; the opportunities are reflected on the consensus between China and the United States and the relatively stable surrounding environment; and the threats are reflected on the strong enemy’s reconnaissance and deterrence, air and sky strikes, and sea and air blockades against China. By constructing a SWOT analysis matrix of China’s maritime air security, it is proposed to further deepen reform, strengthen the overall planning of the military and the local government, peacetime and wartime, and the operational power and process, develop new air defense and early warning equipment, and reinforce the air defe- nse battlefield construction.
