Steady Progress Has Been Made in Advancing the Six Major Innovation Projects of Military-Civilian Integration in Sichuan

  On October 8th, the cooperative operation center for low-altitude airspace unified by the provincial government and commissioned by Sichuan Airlines Group was under intense debugging and will be put into trial operation. At that time, the center will become one of the important support facilities for pilot projects for collaboratively managing low-altitude airspace and for exploring low-altitude airspace below 3,000 meters across the country. The military and civil aviation departments as well as local relevant departments will centralize office works to raise coordination efficiency.

  Sichuan plans to deepen military-civilian integration in a systematic way to further generate new growth points in the aerospace industry. In June of this year, the first provincial level cooperative management agency for low-altitude airspace, the Sichuan Co-management Committee for Low-altitude Airspace, was unveiled in Chengdu. Mr. Lei Kaiping, Director of the Sichuan Province National Defense Science and Technology Industry Office, who is also the first director of the first ever national office for low-altitude airspace, said that the office will focus on formulating rules and regulations, designing and adjusting low-altitude coordinated airspace, simplifying the flight approval process, and accelerating the construction of cooperative operation centers for low-altitude airspace. With these major tasks, it will bring up new mechanisms, promote pilot reforms, and strive to successfully launch a pilot flight under the new mechanism by the end of this year.

  Seizing the new growth opportunities of the navigation industry by means of military-civilian integration is one of the new developing points for the aviation industries in Sichuan. The commercialization of aerospace is on the way. Sichuan is implementing innovation projects for military-civilian integration in satellite and application industries. On September 5th, the Sichuan Commercial Experimental Satellite was successfully launched. According to its plan, Sichuan will deepen its cooperation with the state-owned enterprises and military industries to launch pilot reform such as the integration and resource sharing of the military remote sensing satellite, and to build industrial clusters such as satellite and ancillary equipment manufacturing and satellite information application services, striving to form industrial clusters worthy of 100 billion for military-civilian integration by 2028 and building Chengdu into a highland in terms of national aerospace industry next to Beijing and Shanghai.

  The aerospace industry is only one of the key areas for Sichuan’s in-depth development of military-civilian integration. In recent years, Sichuan has been planning to deepen military-civilian integration in a systematic way. It has taken the lead in establishing a work promotion mechanism of reform and innovation for military-civilian integration involving the "provincial, ministerial, and military" departments. It has solved major cross-region and cross-sector problems, and strengthened planning and guidance, policy support and financial support. All of this will facilitate the military-civilian connectivity and share, which will help utilize the strengths of national defense and military industry to develop the economy and society in a fast way.

  At present, steady progress has been made in Sichuan in advancing the six major innovation projects for military-civilian integration, covering aviation, aerospace, compound semiconductor chips, and information security. The military-civilian integration industry in Sichuan is flourishing. Last year, the main business income of military-civilian integration industry in Sichuan exceeded RMB 310 billion. The main business income of high-tech industry accounted for 73.1% of the main business income of the province's military-civilian integration industry.
