Rotorcraft Flying Over the Sea

On Aug. 26, the ¡°Nanhai¡± autonomous rotorcraft flying robot developed by the Shenyang Institute of Automation, CAS successfully underwent series of deck take-off, landing and oversea flight tests at the South China Sea. This was the first oversea test with ship and first application in oversea flight of this rotorcraft flying robot independently developed by this Institute. It was also the first time for China to carry out such test. At the operating sea area, the ¡°Nanhai¡± autonomous rotorcraft flying robot carried out on-the-spot flight test and demonstration application in 6 flights. It accomplished test items of ¡°autonomous take-off and landing at mobile deck¡±, ¡°autonomous flight under the interference of strong wind over the sea¡±, ¡°collection of multi-source information over the sea¡± and ¡°observation and tracking of mobile targets over the sea¡± and underwent verification test in repeated flights.
