    WASHINGTON -- A secret Pentagon report concludes that Hughes Space and Communications, without proper authorization, gave China technological insights that are crucial to the successful launchings of satellites and ballistic missiles.

    According to the report, completed on Monday, Hughes scientists helped Chinese engineers in 1995 to improve the sophisticated mathematical models necessary to predict the effects of wind, high-atmosphere buffeting and other natural forces on a rocket launching.

    [The company, and other American aerospace concerns, were eager to use Chinese rockets because they are cheaper than American or European competitors, but only if they could be made reliable.] [The Pentagon report said that contact between Hughes engineers and Chinese scientists allowed the Chinese to gain "specific insight into specific launch vehicle design and operational problems and corrective actions"that are crucial to the successful launchings of satellites and ballistic missiles.]

    These formulas are important to designing nuclear missiles and launching satellites that do not explode or break apart. They help technicians calculate the appropriate angle of launch, the shape of the nose cone of the rocket, the tolerable limits of weather and other factors.

    The Chinese, the Pentagon said, had been using an "oversimplified" mathematical analysis, resulting in a series of failed satellite launchings. Hughes pointed out that shortcoming to the Chinese in 1995, when its scientists helped investigate the failed launching of a Hughes commercial communication satellite atop a Chinese rocket.

    The report concluded that Hughes had provided a "defense service" to China that violated American standards against helping Beijing make better satellites and missiles and required a State Department review.

    The company's assistance to China "raises national security concerns both with regard to violating those standards and to potentially contributing to China's missile capabilities," the report said.

    The Justice Department and Congress are investigating how a technical report on the explosion of a Chinese missile in 1996--a report that could help China assess the reliability of its missile arsenal--found its way into the hands of the Chinese.

    That report was prepared by employees of Loral, Hughes Electronics and other firms.

    In a statement issued May 18, Loral said that `Bernard Schwartz, chairman of Loral Space & Communications Ltd. . . . was not personally involved in any aspect of this matter. No political favors or benefits of any kind were requested or extended, directly or indirectly, by any means whatever.'

    The firm also declared that: `Allegations of a connection between the launch failure and a subsequent presidential authorization for use of Chinese launch services for another [Loral] satellite to China are without foundation.'

    Nonetheless, Justice Department and congressional investigators are sure to scrutinize the chronology of gifts and decisions.

    The time line does not prove any cause-and-effect relationship between donations and decisions. It does give investigators a basis for their criminal inquiry.

    April 24, 1995: Loral chairman Schwartz gives $25,000 to the Democratic National Committee.

    June 30, 1995: Schwartz gives $20,000 to Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, which provide support for Democratic Senate candidates.

    Aug. 30, 1995: Schwartz gives $75,000 to DNC.

    Sept. 30, 1995: Schwartz gives $20,500 to DSCC.

    Oct. 9, 1995: Secretary of State Warren Christopher decides satellites should remain a military munitions item.

    Nov. 29, 1995: Schwartz gives $100,000 to DNC.

    Nov. 29, 1995: A Chinese government agency writes Loral, asking for help in getting an upgrade for its dual-use imaging technology, exports of which are prohibited under U.S. sanctions.

    Jan. 26, 1996: Loral is sold to Lockheed for $9 billion.

    But Berger adds that `the advantages of this project outweigh the risk,' and `it is inappropriate to penalize [Loral] before they have even been charged with any crime.'

    Feb. 18, 1998: Clinton signs a waiver allowing Loral satellite to be lifted into orbit by the Chinese.
