BEIJING, June 14 – Hong Kong’s Ta Kung Pao, “14 Journal article said, today, China to maintain sea power, is facing an unprecedented situation of complexity and arduous task “dragon” by leaps and bounds, reflects the leap in China’s technological level, both to help raise China’s level of exploration and exploitation of seabed resources, the improvement of the undersea military technology, will enable the PLA’s marine three-dimensional combat system is more complete, in order to better maintenance of sea power.
article excerpts are as follows:
Chinese “dragon” manned deep diving device will challenge the 7000 m deep. If successful, China will surpass Japan and become the record owner of manned deep dive “the world”; at the same time, which means that China has accounted for 99.8% of the world’s oceans, the vast waters of freedom of movement ability, which can reach almost the bottom of all the world’s waters. China is thus a further step to the forefront of marine technology development.
“dragon” in the value of the business and technology is in the affirmative. About 70% of the surface resources embedded in the seabed, onshore energy resources are depleting, the world turn their attention to the oceans, the continental shelves of nearly 2 million square kilometers in China, is rich in resources.

“dragon” to carry out exploration for polymetallic nodule resources in the seabed topography fine measurements can take advantage of the potential diamond drill core sampling operations, helping to better exploration and development of deep-sea minerals. International seabed environment provided by the Authority, to apply for a certain area of ??the pre-mining rights, there must be under the sea manned submersible for samples and images as. Therefore, the conditions of a manned deep submergence technology, can make the opportunities in the international competition in resource development. In addition, the “dragon” can perform underwater equipment designated cloth put the submarine cable and pipeline inspection, to maintain undersea pipeline transportation security.
“dragon” has a stable hover positioning for operating objectives, and provides reliable protection for diving to complete high-precision tasks in, and have the detection capabilities of advanced underwater acoustic communications and undersea micro-topography, This will help to draw high-precision maps of the seabed can be in the deep sea to intercept the enemy’s confidential communications, thus greatly improving the operational capacity of submarine ocean.
today maintain sea power, is facing an unprecedented complexity of the situation and arduous task, not only Japan, the Philippines and other neighboring countries have repeatedly stirred up trouble in the ocean issues, the United States is also actively intervene, trying to muddy the situation, chaos profits. Maintenance of sea power, in fact, has always insisted that “the people” and “military preparations on both hands. The one hand, to affirm the position of peaceful development, on the other hand, the expression of the war, “First, oppose, is not afraid of”.
dive depth by 140 times in four years
“dragon” can be said to take into account these two aspects. This will promote the level of exploration and exploitation of seabed resources, can help the construction of the naval forces. Improvement of undersea military technology, marine stereo will allow the PLA’s combat system is more complete, better maintenance of sea power.50 m in 2009, the 2010 3759 m 2011 5000 m to 7000 m of the sprint, “dragon” by leaps and bounds, the most vivid reflection of China’s technological level leap. Reason to believe that China is gradually moving towards a “sea power” is no longer a dream. (Ma Haoliang)
