China Weapon Equipment (Group) Corp. (CWEC) is researching security systems used in Olympic gymnasiums in order to improve China's anti-terrorism capability ahead of the Olympic Games, said a senior company official in Beijing Monday.


Li Shouwu, deputy general manager, said in an online interview with Xinhuanet.com that the company has "made considerable progress" in developing anti-terrorist equipment for airport and in Olympic gymnasium security check systems over the past two years.


The company has also launched research and development (R&D) on guns and bullets used in sports events.


Chinese athletes used self-made guns and bullets in shooting events at the Doha Asian Games.


Li said CWEC has started R&D on guns for sports purposes to be used by Chinese players at the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games.
