torpedoes, mines, depth charges, etc., is an important modern naval weapons.
sequence in the People’s Navy, there is a specialized in underwater weapons research and testing unit – a pilot study underwater weapons test area.
depths of the sea cast sword, blue sea and the waves tree monument. Summer season, the reporter came in here to see: in the smoke of the sea range, the sound of an explosion in the enlightening, where scientific and technical personnel, with the pure sake of the loyalty, the interpretation of the contemporary revolution in military hero.
water “to be weapons” from the territorial waters of the motherland array here
a sea area, China’s first naval shock testing began.
This is a major project, participating in as many as dozens of military units. As the organization and implementation units, naval underwater weapons test area pilot study heavy tasks.
all ready: large yield is cloth into the water mine warfare, air helicopter on alert, impact test target ship at sea – a new type of hunting, mine-sweeping slowly into the “minefield.”
“detonate!” Suddenly, thousands of tons of heavy hunting minesweepers was a strong shock wave set off nearly 1 meter minesweeper … … placed on the hunting and the surrounding waters of various precision measuring instruments, pouring continuously record the valuable test data.
success of this trial, the future of naval vessels and equipment design and development and fighting capacity building of great significance.
sword depths of the sea, quiet power in the territorial waters of the motherland. The impact of the test ship difficult preparation, is unimaginable. Only the technical feasibility reports, which the researchers to write a million words.
sacred sense of mission, is a time of technological innovation, a reminder campaign drum. To ensure the test in adverse sea conditions were conducted smoothly, has overcome the optical transmission of the integrated composite cable design, initiation control device development, radio frequency interference testing, 13 technical difficulties; order to obtain accurate test data, they developed a real blast type mines power measurement system, underwater explosion electrical measurement systems, mine warfare underwater positioning accuracy from the past “m” level raised to “centimeter” level, blasting away from the accurate measurement to achieve a historic breakthrough. As a national underwater weapons test range forces, the institute has undertaken in recent years, four major weapons testing and research tasks, the completion of a new type of mines, torpedoes, a submarine combat system more than 60 other experiments.
political commissar of the test area often Hai butt proudly told reporters: “This Institute is a joint naval underwater weapons ‘maiden’, water navy ‘eighteen weapons’, almost all experimental setting where , array territorial waters of the motherland. “
testing ground attached to the future naval battle, every detail will be crucial to victory or defeat in war
2005 winter, a certain type of minesweeper successfully cleared pre-mine, the test successfully “ending.”
return, engineers Koh Hai Yun night of test data analysis and processing. The results shocked him into a cold sweat: minesweeper bit precision hover control requirements with tactical and technical index difference of 20 meters.
20 meters in the open sea on the trivial, but it has meant minesweeper hit a mine into the danger zone!
results announced, controversy flared up. Industry insisted that minesweeper itself is no problem, but range measurement system accuracy is a problem.
test analysis meeting, Mr. Wang held that the political commissar in earnest: “testing ground for the future relationship between the naval victory, closely linked with the lives of officers and men, if we are not strict, it will be condemned by history.”
end, the military reached a consensus: the re-test.
vast sea test site, minesweeper, once again surf Lifeng. A few rounds down, the crux of lock: carrier-based shore-based navigation device is not receiving the signal beacons due to … …
“responsible for naval combat effectiveness, responsible for the future victory of the war soldiers life responsible “, which is the Institute’s solemn commitment of all scientific and technical cadres. With the rapid development of new underwater weapons, testing task has become increasingly important, they always strictly, and the industrial sector, front-line combat units together research tough, fighting to accelerate the formation of new equipment.
2007, the regiment was ordered to fly a new type of torpedo drop in range test executive tasks. The first drop test, the group put the pilot missed the best opportunity to lead a torpedo off target … …
test “off target” can start all over again, war may never lose the next chance to attack. Look in the eyes of anxious in mind, the Institute took the initiative to start research, “instructors” from the torpedo launch of tactical actions, timing and other aspects of pilot training.
soon, warplanes roared overhead again, accurate casts new torpedoes, underwater cruising in one fell swoop would be a “submarine” sank … … Now, three batches of pilots undergo specialized training in the range, became well-known in Miles sea and air.
smile on sea trials the risk of death in the face in front demonstrate a hero
impact test in ships, mine warfare is a critical tipping control technology. Pilot project demonstration phase, the higher the leadership to find the project leader, senior Dongzhong Chen of the Institute, to him for a precise “argument” – the real war mine explosion can effectively avoid risks, to achieve zero error?
Dong Zhongchen look with confidence to give a definite answer. He led four comrades, to the highly difficult task initiated assault. They are numerous and the “death” pass, and finally succeeded in developing play mine detonation control system.
war at sea mine explosion technical work, is a perennial with “death” to deal with high-risk job, a little accident, the consequences could be disastrous. From the mines, mine counter-mine warfare and then detonate, Dong Zhongchen and explosive play a full 24 years of dealings. 24 years, he participated in mine blast test more than 20 times, experienced a second death in the face.
interview, the reporter asked that the engineer Songjing Li: “sea trials the risk so great, you do not fear you?”
Songjing Li smiled and replied: “That is a lie that is not afraid I am also a flesh and blood, but I was military, test site is my battlefield! “
smile on sea trials the risk of death in the face in front demonstrate a hero. Perennial and mine warfare, bombs and other dangerous explosive to deal with, the Institute researchers who have a touching story.
year before winter, a new type of torpedo drop test started. Bleak, frosty. In order to torpedo loaded into the helicopter safety, scientific and technological cadres, director Ning Yongcheng lift with the cold metal tube, hands and hit “stick” out of a layer of skin.
end of the trial, when the waves torpedo salvage processes. In order to avoid the collision hull and torpedo damage, engineers Jafar insurance rope on the ridge line, jumped into the icy waters, physically blocked between the torpedo and the ship was safe … … the ultimate recovery of torpedoes, test a complete success.
