On Monday, the US Department of Commerce added 31 Chinese companies to its export control list. The official announcement, set to be published on June 14, outlines the restrictions that these entities will face in obtaining US exports. Among the listed companies is Shanghai Supercomputing Technology, known for its provision of cloud-based supercomputing technology used in hypersonic research. Additionally, several firms involved in flight training, including the Test Flying Academy of South Africa and Frontier Services Group, have been included due to their engagement in activities that train Chinese military pilots, posing what US authorities deem to be a threat to US national security, according to the announcement.
