Design, Research and Development are “China Shuangliu made”, The world’s first tonnage cargo unmanned aerial vehicle was born in Shuangliu, China

January 11 20:30 2018

Not long ago, the large cargo unmanned aerial vehicle AT200 made its first flight successful in china, which marks the birth of the world’s first tonnage cargo unmanned aerial vehicle, by the joint efforts of the Chinese Academy of Engineering Institute of Engineering Thermophysics and Chengdu Langxing UAV as the overall unit, the United Aviation Industry 618, CLP 54, Space 773, Northwestern Polytechnical university and other units.

 

From design to final assembly, the aircraft was completed in Shuangliu District, Chengdu, Sichuan Province, and was an authentic “Made with Wisdom” project. Why is this world’s first cargo UAV so excellent? What are the special characteristics? In this regard, the reporter will find out for you exactly.

Large in size, it can take off and land in a short distance

 

As for a small cargo drone, its appearance and usage is far from new, while as a tonnage cargo drone, AT200 is indeed the world’s first.

The deputy chief designer Liu Fuhu of AT200 introduced from the weight that, the maximum takeoff weight is 3.4 tons, the load of it is 1.5 tons; and from the aircraft’s volume, AT200’s total length is 11.84 meters, wing span is 12.80 meters, and 4.04 meters high, is the the largest manned aircraft in the field of man-machine in the world.

In addition to the large size, AT200 advantages in the transport mainly in the landing and taking off. “This cargo UAV has very strongful takeoff and landing ability in a short distance, the minimum take-off distance of 77 meters, the minimum landing distance of 100 meters, 200 meters under full load of goods can also take off and land .At the same time, this aircraft is very demanding on the take-off and landing conditions. The AT200 tires are wide-section, low-pressure tires that allow landing on slightly flat grasslands, slopes, and even hillsides. “In an interview, Liu Fuhu said.

In addition, AT200 also equipped with advanced flight control system and command system, completely free from the pilot’s dependence. In the accusation center, it can achieve “a key take-off and landing”, and also control multiple UAVs. At the same time, the aircraft radio data link, ground station and security system are very well in adaptability, with wireless HD map transmission capabilities. The System also has good electromagnetic compatibility, anti-interference ability, its technical achievements are the first in China, the technical indicators have reached the leading domestic level. With large cargo load, long life, amazing ability to take off and landing, and other unique performance advantages.

Wide in use, suitable for transport in remote areas

AT200 has a maximum flight speed of 313 km / h, duration of flight up to 8 hours, the maximum range of 2183 km, the practical ceiling of 6098 meters. Taking off and Landing  can be achieved in High altitude airport, even in the underdeveloped land transport and western mountainous areas, high altitude areas, it can achieve efficient completion of cargo feeder transport. If the aircraft is used in sparsely populated areas, point-to-point urban transport can be achieved through low-cost runway construction, eliminating the need for high road construction costs. Cargo capacity of 10 cubic meters, with large cargo transport capacity, higher transport economy, cargo carrying capacity at home and abroad second to none, and also with the night flight ability to meet the demand for night cargo flight.Develop fast, make good use of aviation cluster advantages

“independently designed in Chengdu, AT200 is a large-scale commercial civil unmanned aerial vehicle with fully independent intellectual property rights in China. The flight control system and link system are fully domesticized.” According to Liu Fuhu, although its research is high in standard and difficulty, in the time aspects, the AT200 can be described as a record in the history of the same type of UAV development.

Speaking of AT200 R & D and design, Liu Fuhu thanked his team, but also said that the success of Langxing is inseparable from the good aviation development atmosphere in Chengdu Shuangliu, “Chengdu as an aviation hub in western China, the airport is in Shuangliu. Meanwhile, Shuangliu has great support for the development of the aerospace industry and high-end manufacturing industry, and its preferential policies are very good.” 

Around the development of aviation industry, Chengdu Shuangliu is planning to build a 4.1 square km Chengdu International Aviation Power Town. “Creating a distinctive industrial park is not only conducive to the integration of aviation industry resources, but also bring about the development of the entire industrial chain, reengineering a new engine of economy.” The relevant person of Aviation power construction headquarters introduced that the Aviation Power Town rise in time, and are consistent with the Shuangliu aviation industry in Matching strength and future planning space.

Chengdu Aerospace Superalloy Technology co.,ltd, Sichuan International Engine Bonded Maintenance Project, Sichuan Aircraft Maintenance Engineering Co., Ltd. From the development to manufacturing, maintenance, the initial appearance of the aviation industry cluster established. In the future, Shuangliu will rely on the policy advantages of the Sichuan Free Trade Zone and develop industries such as civil aviation, hub services, aviation maintenance, research and development training, and general aviation to create a truly cosmopolitan city.
