I have just found this article which provides an insight to the probable motivations of the Chinese ...
What's visible from the air and trackable by satelite in the sky does not matter anymore because we all know the going on of those islands for months via these avenues. Nothing new there. Period. Example: we know about the military airfield that can accommodate the most sophisticated of Chinese military aircrafts, HQ-9 batteries, over the horizon radar installations, PLAN surface asset. No big deal there.
It's like this: the job of an intelligence agency, any intelligence agency, Chinese, American, French, whatever, is that they are there to be in the know about all of the goings ons of the world and, the speculation I have is this:
they wanted to know whether, aside from the surface activities, if there are stealthy underwater activities, ie., an underwater submarine base a'la Sanya fashion (underwater bases are routine with Russia and bulkin states) and if a nuke base are planned there.
My speculation is that the HQ-9's are there for an important purpose. It's there to defend whatever is secretively being built there, ie., secretive project which can not be seen by the naked eye...
