Liang Sili (simplified Chinese: 梁思礼; traditional Chinese: 梁思禮; pinyin: Liáng Sīlǐ; 24 August 1924 – 14 April 2016) was a Chinese rocket and missile system control scientist, and an academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS).

He was the youngest son of Chinese scholar and reformist Liang Qichao.[1] His elder brothers, Liang Sicheng and Liang Siyong, were also academicians.[2]

He was appointed at the Institute of Telecommunications Technology (Ministry of Posts & Telecommunications) and later Institute of Electronic Science (Communication Department of PLA). In 1956, Liang transferred to the Fifth Institute of Ministry of Defense. He became the deputy director of Research Office of Missile Control System, working under Qian Xuesen.[3] He acted an important role on the design of Dongfeng 2A missile, Dongfeng 5 missile, Long March 2 rocket and Long March 3 rocket.[3]

Liang was elected an academician of the International Academy of Astronautics in 1987, and academician of CAS in 1993. He became the vice-president of the International Astronautical Federation in 1994.

Liang died on 14 April 2016 at the age of 91 in Beijing.[4]
