People’s Liberation Army in a number of major new unmanned aerial vehicles play an important role in the task
UAV can perform special tasks play an important role in

2009 年 3 月 24 morning.
around over the test site in Zhengzhou to visit the students, a small UAV mapping demonstration will be held here.
7 点 50 minutes before take-off UAV mapping commanders issued a final check command.
“on-board electrical equipment properly.” … …
then hand control to start the engine, flight assistants belly with one hand holding the handle, the plane above his head.
until the engine is stable, the commander finally ordered a “take-off!”
saw along the intended direction of flight assistants, the run-up steps, take advantage of the UAV throw.
8 o’clock, the aircraft into the sky.
when the aircraft entered the default route, the ground station began to show on the screen shot of the aircraft surface features landscape. Visit people closely watching the screen. “This is not where we stood it! Us here!” When the plane flew over from the test site when a student said excitedly.
8 点 15 points, hand control operation of the controller, issued landing instructions.
After a few circling, the plane began to decline. 100 meters, 80 meters, 50 meters, 30 meters … When the plane dropped about 15 meters from the ground to manipulate hand and issued control instructions. Aircraft engine is off, the parachute from a plane over the pop-up quickly. UAV landed firmly in the test site center. The crowd came the applause.
as the presentation is the University of Surveying and Mapping Institute of Information Engineering Task Force UAV Mapping faculty. Professor in the department, led by Xiong, I came to the College of Surveying and Mapping UAV lab. Placed in several central laboratories of various sizes UAV aircraft. These unmanned aerial vehicles, set remote sensors, communication equipment, satellite navigation systems and other equipment as a whole. In the implementation of mapping mission, the flight controllers monitor the use of its control. When the UAV flew over the mission area, to collect geographic information, the latest communications equipment immediately from the geographic information transmitted to the ground receiving station.
“This aircraft is a fixed-wing UAV, more suitable for mining resources, forest and pasture land, water and other areas of monitoring applications.”
“This aircraft is no helicopter, the investigation is mainly used in emergencies such as landslides prospecting, geological hazard investigation. “… …
suddenly, a high-resolution image map shows ruins attracted my attention.
“This is not a disaster image map?” I asked curiously.
“Yes ah! This is what I attended last year, Professor Wan Gang, Sichuan earthquake relief, the use of unmanned aircraft mapping system captured image map.” Tour to explain to my professor brought in May last year that field earthquake.
on May 12, 2008 earthquake occurred in Wenchuan, Professor Wan Gang was ordered to participate in the General Staff emergency earthquake relief measure ground units. Sichuan’s climate cloudy, foggy, post-topography variation. Satellites or manned aircraft, the ground is difficult to have timely access to real-time image. UAV simple structure, low cost, not only manned aircraft to complete the tasks, but the aircraft was not suitable for the tasks.
5 13, Professor of the UAV to carry less than six months developed mapping systems to the disaster area, access to a large number of high-resolution ground images of the troops Jiuzai played a significant role.
about the development of unmanned aerial vehicles, unmanned aerial vehicles involved in mapping system developed by Professor Yu Xuchu open the dialogue box. Since the 1980s, unmanned aircraft mapping system to become the world competing for a hot research topic. Now, with computer technology, communication technology, various digital, light weight, small size, high accuracy of the new sensor for continuously available, the performance of unmanned aerial vehicles have gone up, application of the rapid expansion of the scope and application, which is no human-computer mapping system developed to provide a guarantee.
interview I learned that the laboratory has been established since the end of 2007, has developed a more complete mapping of the UAV system, from here carry out a number of achievements in a number of major military and civilian played a major role in the task. The system has involved a number of major military activities to protect geographical information services, related results have been successively more tactical training equipment to the military base, integrated training in the military played an important role.
