CETC 14th Research Institute

The 14th Research Institute of China Electronics Technology Group Co., Ltd. is the leader of China national electronics & information industry, cradle of China radar industry and founder of large-scale, new-type and high-level electronic equipment. It is a comprehensive electric system engineering research institute with international competitiveness. The products have been exported to many countries and win good reputation due to excellent performance, high quality and comprehensive after-sales service.

The birthplace of China's radar industry, the wave of research and development of cutting-edge technology in the world's military industry, the output value of 2018 exceeded 19 billion yuan... The heavyweight of the country, the 14th Research Institute of China Electronics Technology Group Corporation (hereinafter referred to as the “fourteen”). The 14th Research Institute of CETC covers an area of nearly 2000 acres. It is the birthplace of Radar industry in China, the new high-end radar pioneer.CETC-14 has integrated with international competition ability. The director Hu Mingchun is more aware of the importance of “management innovation”. At that time, in order to develop a certain type of key radar antenna, Hu Mingchun used the only one 8086 computer in the computer room for programming and debugging, and spent one sleepless night. In the blink of an eye, more than 30 years have passed.

Today, there are more than 3,800 designers in the 14th. The 14th Research Institute of CETC has more than 9000 employees. There are two academicians from the Academy of Engineering China, 4 national outstanding contributions experts, 88 experts who enjoy special government allowance. The personal exploration and enthusiasm can no longer meet the high-quality and all-round development needs of enterprises. This also makes Hu Mingchun determined to work hard on management innovation. "Because we have to face the strongest competition in the world!" Hu Mingchun said forcefully.

In accordance with the principle of the concept first, the fourteenth have built a "top-down" management innovation work system. The whole office is under the leadership of the director and deputy director. Through clear leadership departments, based on the concept of "systematic thinking, systematic operation", the process and system are used to promote the continuous operation and development of management innovation, forming a set of orderly management methods. And the management innovation task is decomposed to the post to the people, supporting the reward and punishment mechanism to promote the smooth progress of the work.

In addition, the fourteen departments are also based on system thinking and problem orientation, strengthening management innovation project identification, deep integration of innovation projects and scientific research, production management and management, emphasizing the problem from two perspectives, namely: from the system thinking, based on the long-term, Standing on the strategic control level of the state, group companies and fourteen places to conduct the topic selection; from the problem orientation, research and analysis on the problems arising in the process of scientific research production management, and find solutions and management ideas.

Hu Mingchun In 2016, Hu Mingchun was appointed as the director of the 14th. Although the situation of the fourteenth has long been known, when the whole "chess" is placed in front of him, he still felt the pressure on his shoulders: on the one hand, the product development task is more and more, the product delivery cycle is getting shorter and shorter. Resource conflicts are becoming more and more obvious; on the other hand, the rapid development of electronic information technology, technology replacement, collaborative innovation, and resource integration require that the fourteen must innovate the original technology research and development, product development, operation management, equipment support and business model. Otherwise, it will not be able to meet the needs of the state and the military, and will not be able to adapt to the requirements of the world's new technological transformation and development.

Therefore, Hu Mingchun thought of leading the 14th through continuous advancement through informational means and sound institutional processes. In the enterprise information construction, by making full use of the existing information system, knowledge sharing can be realized, and the management innovation work can be run more smoothly; in terms of organization, management innovation is clearly led by the Ministry of Planning and Economic Operations, because From the perspective of medium- and long-term development and market-oriented operation, the planning and economic operation department is more in line with each other; in addition, the four-point approach of the fourteen places is to build a workflow suitable for itself, create a platform for internal and external linkage communication, establish a database of management innovation, and build The core management talent team is well-positioned to ensure smooth operation of the company.

Thanks to the improvement of the overall management innovation capability, the 14th in 2018 has won 63 awards for management innovation achievements at all levels, a record high. In 2017, the results of the 14th “Digital Lifecycle Quality Management of Complex Military Electronic Equipment Based on Digitalization, Visualization and Intelligence” won the “First Prize of the 24th National Enterprise Management Modernization Innovation Achievement”. Gain, Wang Ping knows well, thanks to the overall improvement brought by management innovation: “For example, we used to take orders, and now we actively participate in the formulation of orders and continuously optimize the demand; previously only delivered equipment, now full tracking, full coordination It became a delivery energy efficiency."

From the voluntary declaration of various departments, to the current process of reporting, reviewing, and external expert review, the process and process of a series of work; from the previous information dispersion, poor communication, and now through the information platform to inherit the results, the end of each year Do experience sharing and exchange of results; previously internal audit, now set up a team of experts, invite external corporate executives, university professors, etc. to serve as consultants to participate in the review.

From June 19th to 25th, the 52nd Paris International Aerospace Exhibition was held at the Le Bourget Airport in Paris, France. China Electronics Technology Group Corporation 14 (hereinafter referred to as "14") exhibited more than ten military and civilian radar electronic system equipment, showing the world's latest development level of radar technology to the world.

As the birthplace of China's radar industry, the 14th is known as the "eye of the three armed forces and the heavy weapon of the country." In recent years, it has attracted much attention because of the development of star products such as Air Police-2000, "Star of the Sea" radar, and quantum radar. Today, the performance of China's multi-type radar products has reached the world's leading level.

Stealth goal is one of the core threats that need to be faced in modern warfare. "Anti-stealth" has become the focus of radar technology development in various countries. At the Paris Air Show, 14 anti-stealth radars became the biggest attraction. The YLC-29 passive radar, which debuted for the first time, can detect, locate, and track targets such as stealth aircraft through civilian broadcast FM signals, and ensure that they are not discovered. Other radars have been optimized for anti-stealth performance. Different frequency bands can form a reliable air defense early warning detection system to ensure the detection of stealth targets and guide the air defense system to attack the target.

Hu Mingchun said that these are all fourteen really made. In the process of doing things, look for the opposites in the positive direction, think about how to improve; look back in the opposite direction, check the gaps in time, and these seemingly simple reasons are now put into practice by them. “The good attempts made by these will be preserved in time and normalized to ensure the continuous renewal of innovation. Only through continuous trials can we continue to serve the technological innovation through continuous management innovation and achieve the improvement and efficiency of the enterprise. ""

Advancing from the top-level structure from top to bottom, adhering to the two-wheel drive of management innovation and technological innovation, this has become the motto of fourteen faster and better development. Now, Hu Mingchun has clearly felt that the production and development cycle of the 14 products has been shortened, the quality has improved, and the users have become more satisfied. This is the result of management innovation. 14 have sold radar system equipment to more than 20 countries. These equipments have withstood the test and baptism of war in some countries and won praise from international users.

As a device that uses radio waves to find targets and determine their spatial position, radar's ability to develop is a yardstick for measuring the development level of the national defense military industry. Since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, China's radar technology has advanced by leaps and bounds, and has always been at the forefront of the world in the development of new radar technology. Whether it is the sky, the land or the ocean, the Chinese radar is "all-in-one".

The 14th Institute of China Electronics Technology Group Corporation (CETC) has successfully developed China’s first quantum radar system, Xinhua News Agency reported September 08, 2016. The system, which is based on the technology of single photon detection, counts as yet another major milestone for China in quantum research. The quantum radar system was developed by the Intelligent Perception Technology Laboratory of the 14th Institute of CETC. Researchers completed experiments on quantum detection and target scattering characterization. In the target detection experiment, conducted in a real atmospheric environment, the detection ability of the system was proven to be over 100 kilometers. According to a Sept. 8 report by Mingbao Daily, the theoretical basis of the quantum radar is that an object will change its quantum properties after receiving photonic signals. The quantum radar can easily detect stealth aircraft and is highly resistant to becoming jammed. Military experts have stated that once a stealth aircraft is located by the radar, it stands little chance to escape the strikes of air defense missiles.

In late 2017 police in Nanjing arrested Falun Gong practitioners in an operation ahead of the 19th Communist Party Congress in the name of “maintaining social stability.” Radar design expert Mr. Ma Zhenyu, senior engineer Ms. Xie Yanmin, and junior engineer Mr. Ma Mingjie of the Nanjing Fourteenth Research Institute are still detained. China Electronics Technology Group Corporation (CETC) 14th Research Institute, also known as Nanjing 14th Research Institute, employed nearly 300 practitioners before the onset of the persecution of Falun Gong in July 1999.

Practitioners employed by the institution had been taken to prisons, detention centers, mental hospitals and brainwashing centers. The Institute also set up a brainwashing center. All costs were deducted from the practitioners’ salaries. The Gulou District Brainwashing Center was also set up to persecute practitioners from the 14th Institute.

The US Entity List (Supplement No. 4 to part 744) identifies entities reasonably believed to be involved, or to pose a significant risk of being or becoming involved, in activities contrary to the national security or foreign policy interests of the United States. The EAR imposes additional license requirements on, and limits the availability of most license exceptions for, exports, reexports, and transfers (in-country) to listed entities. he End-User Review Committee (ERC), composed of representatives of the Departments of Commerce (Chair), State, Defense, Energy and, where appropriate, the Treasury, makes all decisions regarding additions to, removals from, or other modifications to the Entity List.

Effective August 1, 2018, ERC added China Electronics Technology Group Corporation 14th Research Institute (CETC 14), a.k.a., the following seven aliases, and two subordinate institutions: Nanjing Research Institute of Electronics Technology; NRIET; Nanjing Electronics Technology Institute; Ministry of Information Industry Electronics; No 14 Research Institute; Research Institute 14; and CETC Research Institute 14.

China's top radar development institute was awarded a national prize for a classified, advanced project, as experts hailed China's radar industry as a top player in the world. For participating in a major project, the 14th Research Institute of the state-owned China Electronics Technology Group Corporation (CETC) was given the first prize in the National Science and Technology Progress Award in a ceremony held in Beijing on 10 January 2020. The detail of the project is "too advanced to be openly displayed," reports said. Military observers believe the project to be closely related to China's advanced radar development.

The Nanjing-based institute is the birthplace of China's radar industry, the only large, high-technology, comprehensive institute in China that can deliver early warning and detection systems for all fields of sea, land, air and space. Radar products made by the CETC 14th Research Institute can be found on a variety of Chinese weapons and equipment including warships, warplanes, air defense systems, strategic early warning systems, anti-drone systems and satellites.

The AESA radar dubbed "Star of the Sea" installed on China's recently commissioned aircraft carrier Shandong is a homemade product of the institute. The radar effectively boosts Chinese naval formations' regional air defense capability, making China the third country behind the US and Russia to be able to domestically develop such a system.

Thanks to the institute, China now operates radars of different bands and all types, allowing them to cooperate with and complement each other, optimizing their detection capability, detection accuracy and mobility. Coordination between different radar bands can also resist hostile jamming and thrive in complicated electromagnetic environments.

A military expert who asked not to be named told the Global Times on 12 January 2020 that Chinese radars can be considered among the most advanced level in the world. "One of the sharpest spears in modern warfare is stealth aircraft, which can sneak deep into hostile territory and launch deadly attacks. But China possesses the shield to counter it by developing the anti-stealth radar," the expert said. Wu Jianqi, a senior scientist at CETC, said in an interview with Naval & Merchant Ships magazine in 2019 that China's meter wave anti-stealth radar not only detects advanced stealth aircraft, but also guides missiles to destroy them.
