June 19 Xinhua Beijing Xinhua Title: Farming in the clouds – remember the Air Force Institute of equipment, a deputy director Chen Zhijie
Zhang Yuqing, the applicant into the Division Zhang Mimi
from Chen Zhijie office looking out the window, the vast blue sky, white clouds, such as array.
air traffic control specialists Chen Zhijie office was back to the sky – no duty-bound, that 10 million hectares of airspace recruiting chest had, by his dealings in the clouds farming, plow the ease of vertical and horizontal terraced rice paddies, unraveling weave a detailed close air transportation network.
Chen Zhijie, this new Chinese air traffic control industry pioneer, the national air traffic control in general, head of technical experts, the Air Force Institute of equipment, deputy director of a research institute, and groups of the ATC quietly together, the national army has overcome key technical areas of air traffic control more than 80 items, fill, within the military more than 10 items blank, so a late start in China’s air traffic control in developed countries 20 years to catch up with the road traveled for 50 years .
air traffic control, referred to as “empty pipe”, which is to ensure the sky speed of up to hundreds of kilometers of the aircraft, “come up” “close get back “” No Crash “,” no traffic jam. ” Chen Zhijie racked their brains more than 20 years, is for the national army air traffic control business provides top-level design and technical support.
After the reforms, the rapid development of China’s aviation industry, and air traffic control industry are still stuck in the stage of program management and manual work.
the late 1980s, the State Council made the “reform air traffic control system, the progressive realization of the modernization of China’s air traffic control means,” a strategic decision. In 1991, “Building an integrated military air traffic control automation system” under the task to an Air Force Institute. Only 30-year-old Chen Zhijie, the budding field of information processing in radar, was appointed “chief engineer project software,” led the formation of the first military air traffic control laboratory.
that is to take over air traffic control work in the near future, Chen Zhijie army delegation to the United States to study. European air traffic control automation research has been carried out more than 20 years, built up a comprehensive framework and process precision. Denver is only one airport in the United States the amount of annual flying time, China is almost equivalent to the amount of the country’s years of flying. At Bell Labs, it seems many in China “concept” of the cutting-edge technology has not only put into practice, and has been done as a complete industry.
returned in, Zhi-Jie Chen, “feel that every cell in the upper and lower body are deeply shocked” and began to lead the team to speed up the run.
they encounter the first problem, it is not “how”, but “what” – a group engaged in communications, navigation, radar, software researchers themselves in an unfamiliar, empty pipe area, do not even know the controller’s business processes, do not even know what “mission.”
second question, it is hard to imagine the workload – the so-called air traffic control, “Automation,” “integration” is to air all of the flight situation, future trends and other data presented by the automated system to controllers, so that the routes and airspace stratified, area associations and networking. Land above the face of more than 10 million square kilometers of airspace, thousands of aircraft, and 15% annual growth rate, which is a very complex, very complex computational problems.
Chen Zhijie led the team to the national airport, all flights to collect data and information, to communicate with all levels of controllers, to listen to the specific requirements at all levels, proposed to “melt” the main top-level design ideas: integration of military and civil aviation needs of users, the integration of various elements of the air traffic control functions to achieve the integration of military and civilian aviation management, air traffic control to achieve integrated air defense.
this pioneering ideas, to solve our country’s military aviation intertwined, interwoven old and new equipment, imported equipment and domestic equipment, intertwined, interwoven air traffic control and air defense problem, let the military control zone at all levels, civil aviation the low control zone and the efficient operation of all military and civilian airport, so that communications, navigation, intelligence, weather protection coordinated operation of various systems, so that military and civil aviation flight without disturbing each other.
After 13 years of painstaking study and practice, Zhi-Jie Chen led the research group successfully completed the automation of air traffic control system, the army comprehensive verification, system construction and system integration. The subject to achieve the flight activities of China’s airspace surveillance and control services effective, the State Science and Technology Progress Award.
the late 1980s, the international community of the “new navigation system” concept – to change the past practice of the main support ground-based radar , the automatic dependent surveillance (ADS) technology, satellite navigation and data link technology to the air traffic control system, the use of sky, sea and other means to achieve air control.
major foreign companies in China fancy piece of the market. However, the face of China’s core technology in this field blank, the foreign side of the implementation of strict blockade, while on wild speculations.
Chen Zhijie volunteered: do not rely on charity, it yourself!
he led 16 industrial sectors, local institutions, units of the researchers race against time, strenuously research. Through three years of unremitting efforts, finally successful completion of the new navigation system, military aircraft pilot projects.
authoritative assessment of post-evaluation, a new military aircraft navigation system, mastered the core technology of modern, Western countries broke the blockade in this area, is the first proprietary development of air traffic control system, marking military air traffic control building for the first time with their foreign counterparts stand in the same horizontal line.
after the earthquake in Wenchuan, Sichuan implemented since the founding of New China, the largest air traffic control. Chen Zhijie team assumed command of the emergency installation of a terminal air traffic control task. He led the emergency unit, will lead the country received a military flight emergency situation to do the screen, the whole process took only 2 hours and 3 minutes.
Beijing Olympics, Chen Zhijie the ATC unit responsible for command of the Olympic information system platform, he himself as a systems programming, system development, security and other aspects of running the technical guidance, all kinds of flight safety and security 54 million vehicles, so that a zero error, zero failures.
Chen Zhijie by the National Air Traffic Commission appointed the first national air traffic control for the overall technical experts, from 1996 to the present has served as the overall team leader, participated in a national air traffic control system, “85″ to “five-second “previous five-year plan, presided over previous research guidelines for the preparation of national air traffic control, the subject assessment and acceptance knot title work for air traffic control and long-term development of top-level decision-making provided a strong scientific and technological support.
Chen Zhijie and his comrades in the joint efforts of China’s air traffic control area to complete a three-layer height of the reform. Currently, the main route of flight down to the vertical interval from 150 km 20 km flight from the 1200 m vertical spacing reduced to 300 meters to reach the international advanced level.
military aircraft in a project tender, the successful local unit of a company, Chen Zhijie unit second place. As a project team leader, chief technical division, Chen Zhijie frankly said: “This company has the characteristics of software development, there are advantages, I fully support!”
the whole process of project supervision, Chen Zhijie never been studied under the military’s standard-setting flight of the bid, guidance technology. From preparation, to installation and testing of prototype debug, Chen Zhijie unreservedly to provide technical support. Ultimately, the project time by 79 sets of equipment inspection, installation and operation is not a problem.
“This is a mind, not everything he knows people.” Peer commented.
Chen Zhijie research team led every step, are constantly testing, constantly argue, constantly breaking process. “To fight it, is a good thing. Good and bad ideas are put forward as possible!” Chen Zhijie said.
“Chen, deputy director of the work along, along!” My colleagues said.
Chen Zhijie in the style of study of mind and moral character reputation. Many research projects, he is a leader in the organization is specific participant, but as long as the project is not complete their primary and never signed; he not only nominal, still active research projects for award when his name crossed out.
airspace is limited, mind boundless. Air traffic control, is a “no best, only better ’cause there is always a pursuit, but never forever. By Zhi-Jie Chen’s words, “people very happy thing.”
