There are large and small supermarkets such as Renrenle, Minsheng and CR Vanguard around the institute, as well as multiple mature communities and fitness centers. There are fitness places and employee activity centers for employee activities.
There are more than 1,700 employees and more than 1,100 professional and technical personnel. Among them, there are 2 academicians of the Academy of Engineering, more than 50 senior engineers at the researcher level, and more than 300 senior engineers. The technical force is strong, mainly engaged in the development of the overall control system and important components. The institute is equipped with laboratories for mechanical control, electronic control, optical control, electrical and inspection, engine, launcher, steering gear, aerodynamics, semi-physical simulation, etc.; it has optical, electronic, computer, automatic control, mechanical design More than 20 majors such as manufacturing, explosion mechanics, polymer materials, simulation, aerodynamics, etc.; advanced simulation laboratory, wind tunnel laboratory, millimeter wave laboratory, and large-scale CAD laboratory, etc., advanced test methods; domestic First-class laboratory and equipment.
For more than 40 years since the establishment of the Institute, all the cadres and employees of the Institute have worked hard and forged ahead and made significant contributions to the modernization of my country's national defense science and technology. It has won more than 1,500 scientific and technological achievements, including more than 20 national scientific and technological achievement awards, more than 100 ministerial-level scientific and technological achievement awards, more than 200 provincial and ministerial-level scientific and technological achievement awards, and won the national special prize for scientific and technological progress, second prize, etc. . Some high-tech products have entered the international market, generating hundreds of millions of dollars in foreign exchange for the country, and have established technical exchange and cooperation relations with more than 20 countries.
The research task of the institute is full and the funds are sufficient. It can provide a broad development space and comfortable working environment for scientific and technological personnel. The Institute insists on deepening reforms and accelerating the pace of transformation into a technology-based enterprise. It has established the strategic concept of "building a modern high-tech enterprise with core competitiveness" and the development goal of "a first-class domestic and internationally renowned modern high-tech enterprise".
China presents its HJ-12 on the market as a cheaper analog of Javelin but specific price parameters are not yet known. Among its competitors may be Chinese systems of the previous generation that do not implement the principle of “fire-and-forget” but which are quite effective and repeatedly tested in actual combat. These are, in particular, enhanced versions of HJ-8, HJ-9, HJ-10, and HJ-11 systems.
Remarkably, the production of all these types of anti-tank missiles seems to be concentrated in a single group of companies that are part of the Norinco military-industrial group corporation. These are Xi'an Modern Control Technology Research Institute, also known as 203rd Research Institute, serving as the developer and North Industries Group Red Arrow Co., Ltd., formerly known as Factory 282, as a manufacturing holding company.
Consequently, given the abundance of types of Chinese portable anti-tank missile systems, there is hardly any competition among manufacturers. Perhaps, the Chinese manufacturer may be able to build a more flexible pricing policy for its HJ-12s through such concentrated production process to ensure their presence in key markets. This will probably include the presence in conflict-ridden areas of the Middle East, such as Iraq and Yemen, where anti-tank missiles are one of the most important weapons.
