Mei Ling is an M.I.T. graduate who specializes in programming and electronics. She was the inventor of Solid Snake's radar which could detect enemies in the immediate vicinity of the user. She also developed the wireless codec which we all know and love because of the many useful and entertaining things it brings.
In a Codec conversation, players will find out that Mei Ling originally wanted to become a pilot, but because of her poor eyesight she was immediately disqualified. This is a real shame, because it's been mentioned that she has superb B.D.A. (Battlefield Damage Assessment) skills.
Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty sorely missed Mei Ling as it was revealed that she was operating from within the U.S. Military to procure weapons and other gear for the Philanthropy movement. She does make a short cameo of sorts as she corrects Otacon in his Chinese proverb delivery to Snake, but that was just about it for her.
By 2014, in Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, Mei Ling has been put in charge of a decommisioned U.S. warship the Missouri which is used for training purposes and so is not on the Sons Of The Patriots System. This means she is able to use it to aid Snake during the latter stage of the game.
