Over the years, only two foreign “S/II” remote sensing aircraft have been carrying out remote sensing observation missions in Our national airspace, and have a remote sensing observation platform independently developed by our country, which has been a target for domestic scientific researchers. In June 2014, the development of the domestic Xinzhou 60 remote sensing machine was officially launched. After 5 years of efforts of The West Feimin Aircraft Company, two domestic high-performance new boat 60 remote sensing aircraft successfully completed the development, verification and airworthiness forensicwork.
Xinzhou 60 remote sensing aircraft chief designer Ding Yaxiu said that the new boat 60 remote sensing aircraft is based on the domestic Xinzhou 60 aircraft modified and designed aviation remote sensing earth observation special aircraft. In order to meet the diversified needs of remote sensing machine sensing equipment and observation purposes, the designers made great changes to the structure of the original body. On the basis of the modification of the xinzhou 60 aircraft, 6 different states such as the basic type of xinzhou 60 remote sensing platform, the antenna cover type of remote sensing platform, the type of truss antenna of remote sensing platform, the sub-tank type of remote sensing platform, the truss type of remote sensing platform, and the small antenna hood type of the remote sensing platform. From the technical indicators, the performance of the new boat 60 remote sensing machine has reached the world’s advanced level.
Wu said that aviation remote sensing can be carried out in a large number of places, in emergency protection, disaster relief, agriculture, water conservancy and other fields have a wide range of applications. After the delivery of two domestic xinzhou 60 remote sensing aircraft, researchers can make full use of this platform, load advanced optical remote sensing, microwave remote sensing and other equipment, making it an effective technical means to carry out scientific research on China’s earth system. It is also a platform for international cooperation that can provide scientific data for human beings to better study changes on the planet.
