China’s first 50kg-class pilotless remote sensing system TJ-1, an important fruit of the 863 Program, was successfully developed in Qingdao. The TJ-1 pilotless aircraft is 2.4 meters long and 0.9 meters high with wingspan of 4.2 meters. With ceiling of 3,000 meters and controlled radius of 100 km, the aircraft can fly at 100 km per hour for four hours continuously. With proprietary intellectual property rights, the TJ-1 is applicable in civil remote sensing, and satisfies demands in the fields like water conservancy, forestry, and environmental protection.
