    On June 11, 017, the Ministry of Defense issued a training photo of a rare group of Chinese Air Force UAV units displaying the training and life of the first UAW force of the Chinese Air Force.

    The use of the UAVs by the Chinese military is more and more widespread. Not only has the long-range reconnaissance drone equipped by the former general-purpose reconnaissance department, but also the medium-sized UAVs equipped by the Army's remote artillery units have become standard reconnaissance equipment and the Air Force has also formed Special UAV flight mission. UAV combat on land has become an emerging field, Chazhu UAV began a large number of troops into service.

    The PLAAF started its work of selecting pilot drone pilots in 2010. UAV pilots are active duty pilots of the Air Force, and control devices are similar to manned fighter planes. In February this year, there were even two third-generation fighter pilots flying drones. One of them also had outstanding achievements in free-air combat , Won the highest honor Air Force pilots - "Golden Helmet." Although these old pilots have reached the age of grounded flight, their accession means no breakthrough in the actual combat level of unmanned combat forces.

    China's high-end UAV "Rainbow -5" officially entered the mass production stage. According to experts, the aircraft will also carry out several pilot flights and fine-tune it according to the needs of users.

    Rainbow-5 is a large-scale, long-range, long-haul UAV developed by China Academy of Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation. The wingspan is 21 meters, the maximum take-off weight is 3300 kg and the maximum range is over 10,000 km. The aircraft is mainly used for the implementation of reconnaissance and surveillance throughout the day, patrolling, the target precise positioning, combat damage assessment and other tasks.

    Cloud Shadow UAV flight radius of 13000 meters, the use of advanced electronic detection and image detection equipment, mounted fire control radar cover 400 km. In an hour you can collect more than 10,000 square kilometers within the scope of the image, if necessary, within 60 km long-range precision strike, destroy the target, technically leading in the world.

    From the airshow supporting weapons point of view, the biggest highlight of the cloud shadow is that it can launch anti-ship missiles, its super payload ensure the capability to launch a lightning attack on a large aircraft carrier battle group within 1000-2000 km from shore-based, is a great blessing for the countries as Iran and Pakistan.

    "Wind shadow" UAV with twin engines

    Recently, the internet exposed a photo of a new Chinese drone. From the exposed picture, this type of UAV using two jet engines, may have a higher flying height and speed, the tail of the engine nozzle is not a traditional circular structure, but the stealth of Triangle processing. The UAV's body has been conducted with stealth processing. It is said that the aircraft is a new UAV developed by Chengdu Aircraft Design Institute of AVIC.

    The first "Made in China" 1000kgf thrust Turbo Fan Engine

    http://news.xinhuanet.com/politics/2017-12/12/c_1122094893.htm

    "Jiuzhai" engine is a small double-rotor turbofan engine with supercharger grade independently designed by China Aviation Sichuan Gas Turbine Research Institute. It can provide power for about 10 tons of unmanned aerial vehicles, including light patrol combat unmanned aerial vehicles, stealth reconnaissance unmanned aerial vehicles, high-speed medium-sized target aircraft.



    The R & D team is a group of young people under the age of 30. The launch of "Jiuzhai" engine project benefited from the support of the Turbine Academy for youth entrepreneurship.

    A historic supplier of air defense systems such as the HQ-2 , HQ-7 , HQ-8 and the HQ-9 among others, the No. 2 Academy of the Chinese aerospace group CASIC s is also set to develop systems to mitigate the danger of drone.

    On the basis of a first Hard-kill system called " Sky Net 1 " (天网 一号), the Chinese missile manufacturer has just proposed an improved version by combining a long-range electronic jammer and a quadrituet launch gun, all accompanied by an optronic turret and mountable on a light utility vehicle pickup type.

    The particularity of this new version of Sky Net is its very simplified handling, a single operator is now necessary to control the entire system. During the latest demonstration and evaluation campaign launched by Xia'men City police, the new Sky Net, which has just completed a battery of tests, is the only one among a dozen anti-drone solutions to have managed to catch a drone in flight with a net.

    The video broadcast by CASIC on its Weixin account shows that once the "clandestine" drone captured by the net, the whole will be brought back to the ground thanks to a small parachute to avoid the collateral damage caused by the relapse.

    Note that the Sky Net 1 anti-drone system has already been chosen and deployed several times to protect the sites during major events, such as the 2010 Asian Games, the 2011 BRICS summit in Sanya, the Beijing Olympics summer of 2014, or the CCTV New Year Gala in Guangzhou in 2016.

    the AUDS anti-drone system of the Nanjing Institute of Electronics Technology Institute(NRIET) has recently been evaluated by the local police chief.

    Essentially, this solution relies on the YLC-48 radar developed by NRIET to detect low-profile objects in motion, both in flight and at sea. This is a S-band, cylindrical, electronically scanned radar. active, able to monitor on 360 ° simultaneously, which allows him to avoid the problems related to data refresh.

    The omnidirectional detection means is then supplemented by an electronic scrambling system to ensure the soft-kill of flying or illegally flying drones.
