“Defense Line — Asymmetric Combat UAV Research and Development of the Chinese Academy of Sciences” Is Here, You Know the Latest UAV!

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.
