The Russia-Ukraine war showed the multi-faceted use of drones on the battlefield and fully demonstrated the essence of asymmetric warfare. The National Sun Yat-sen Institute of Science is the leader in domestic scientific and technological research and development, and it also plays an unparalleled role in the national drone team promoted by the government. Substitutable Key Roles The Chinese Academy of Sciences follows the government’s guidance in promoting the development of the drone industry.
We are responsible for integrating and developing smart core technologies, transferring technology, and supporting domestic industries to fully implement the policy of national defense independence. Currently, the Chinese Academy of Sciences is planning and preparing various production operations based on the needs of the national army’s drones, including the large-scale Tengyun. Ruiyuan Type 2.
Anti-radiation attack type and small surveillance and reconnaissance drones will also be jointly promoted with the capacity of the private sector to meet the needs and goals of future military preparations. The Aviation Research Institute of the Chinese Academy of Sciences in Taichung is an important place for research and development, experimentation, problem solving and continuous innovation. Base outsourcing can only make up for the gap in our time.
But we can never make up for our technological gaps. So the meaning of national defense independence is actually to take the technology into our own hands. On the road of drone research, we have not relied on the support of any foreign technical consultants. It’s our own.
These young engineers say that when they first enter this field, it is inevitable that our products will have some problems when they are in service, such as poor reliability or incomplete design, or there are areas worthy of improvement, but fortunately, After using our national army troops.
The experience of using these will be continuously fed back to us. Because these technologies are in our own hands, we can make improvements based on the problems reported by the national army. The Chinese Academy of Sciences has rich technical information and experience, but how to combine it with private enterprises? .
Only in this way can we improve the production and logistics maintenance services of drones. The newly completed Asian Drone AI Innovation Application R&D Center in Chiayi is a very important Asia Innovation Center for the emerging cluster of drones. In fact, it is considered a vertical industry chain for us. The ecology starts from the upstream whether it is a module.
The manufacturers of parts are all upstairs in the factory to assemble the body of our related modules and do some testing. After the testing is completed, the Chinese Academy of Sciences obtains such a body, and we will subsequently install our communication modules.
After the confidentiality module is completed, we will conduct a ground test as a whole. After the test is completed, we will also provide a complete flight site for flight testing. This is the characteristic of the development of an industry with such vertical integration.
Quickly obtain the products we want. In addition to the drones that have been mass-produced and used by the armed forces of the three armed forces, the Chinese Academy of Sciences continues to conduct research and development and testing in the hope of taking the national army’s asymmetric warfare capabilities to a higher level. Tengyun’s mission is intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance. Mainly, its payload mainly contains this optical imaging system.
Synthetic aperture radar and electronic reconnaissance can use a variety of different payloads and different methods at the same time to target suspicious targets and then perform search, positioning, identification and monitoring tasks. What is particularly important to mention is the cruising altitude of Tengyun.
They are all at an altitude of more than 20,000 feet, so relatively speaking, its specifications are much higher than those of ordinary small drones. But because it has to meet the requirements of long-duration flight, the first thing is of course its aerodynamic appearance that must be achieved. To reduce drag, the second step is that the weight of the entire system must be strictly controlled.
Then, the Jianxiang anti-radiation unmanned attack aircraft is as lightweight as possible. It is designed to attack the enemy’s radar. It can cover everything from search radar to fire control radar. It can perform instant suicide attacks or perform long-term hovering in the sky to suppress the second. The aircraft is a derivative configuration of the Jianxiang anti-radiation unmanned attack aircraft.
From the appearance, you can see that it has an optical lens that can detect, identify and track ground targets through the so-called artificial intelligence method of AI. You can hit whatever you see. The third type of unmanned attack aircraft has High ammunition capacity can be matched with different warheads.
The power system of these important strategic facilities, which are mainly designed to attack the enemy, is a rotary engine developed by the Chinese Academy of Sciences. Its small size and high horsepower, combined with our arrow-like body shape, allow this vehicle to fly a long distance and nearly vertically. Dive attack.
It has a very high penetration rate and crashed many aircraft during the flight test. The whole process is vivid in my mind. After going through that arduous process, I believe that our aviation industry will be in the loitering munitions sector in the future due to the accumulation of knowledge and experience.
There will be leap-forward results announced. The Republic of China is actively improving its national defense independence and asymmetric combat capabilities. The drone research and development team of the Chinese Academy of Sciences has a long way to go in the face of the rapidly changing international situation.
