CASIC Fourth Academy
CASIC‘s Fourth Academy was established in 2002 and specializes in design, development, and manufacturing of the DF-21 MRBM and associated variants. Centered upon the Fourth Design Department, the Fourth Academy‘s business model marks an evolutionary departure from previous aerospace industrial practices. Under its "small core, large collaboration" philosophy, the Fourth Academy specializes in systems integration programs involving a complex supply chain. In the case of the DF-21C, for example, the Fourth Academy oversaw more than 20 sub-contractors, of which less than half were within CASIC. The 4th Academy and the 9th Academy of China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation (CASC) were merged to form a new 4th Academy.
China Academy of Aerospace Science and Industry Transportation Technology (referred to as the Fourth Academy of Aerospace Science and Industry), composed of the same level and the fourth overall design department (four departments), the command automation technology research and development and application center (401), and the overall control system research institute (17 institutes), missile assembly and test plant (Nanjing 307 Plant), Aerospace Chenguang Co., Ltd., Nanjing Chenguang Investment Company and other 6 units. Among them, the Fourth Department was established in August 1965, which is China’s first solid surface (submarine) missile weapon system overall design department. The 401 Institute was established in June 2010 and is the overall unit of the command and control system of the Fourth Academy.
The core technology research and development base, the 17th Research Institute was established in February 1968 as a general research institute for solid launch vehicle control systems. The predecessor of the Nanjing 307 Factory was the Jinling Machinery Manufacturing Bureau founded in 1865. It has a long history of military industry. China Aerospace Science and Industry Vehicle Technology Research Institute (New Fourth Academy), integrated and reorganized from the former China Aerospace Science and Industry Corporation Fourth Research Institute and Ninth Research Institute, was listed in Wuhan on December 30, 2011.
China Aerospace Science and Industry Transportation Technology Research Institute (referred to as the Fourth Academy of Aerospace Science and Industry), affiliated to China Aerospace Science and Industry Corporation, was established in July 2002. It is based on the needs of China Aerospace Science and Industry Corporation in accordance with the national defense industry development strategy. The affiliated unit was established through professional reorganization and restructuring, and is mainly responsible for the research, development and product operation of transportation technology and related technical systems, as well as the technical development plan in this field and the corresponding technical management.
The member units of the Fourth Academy of Aerospace Science and Industry are located in Beijing and Nanjing, Jiangsu Province. Beijing area has Beijing Mechanical and Electrical Engineering General Design Department (hereinafter referred to as Department 4), Command Automation Technology R&D and Application Center (abbreviated as 401 Institute), Control and Electronic Technology Institute (abbreviated as 17 Institute), Nanjing area has Nanjing Chenguang Group Co., Ltd. The company (referred to as the three ? seven plants), Nanjing Chenguang Hi-Tech venture Capital Co., Ltd . There are more than 18,000 employees in the Fourth Academy. Among them, there are nearly 100 experts and academic and technical leaders, and nearly 1,000 researchers and senior engineers. After decades of development, the Fourth Academy of Aerospace Science and Industry has produced a large number of outstanding talents in the aerospace industry represented by the "two bombs and one star" academician Huang Weilu and Chen Deren.
They have a long history of development, strong product research and development capabilities and Strong economic strength. In the field of military products, it has created many "firsts" in China and is an important base for the research and production of my country's delivery technology and related technical systems. In the field of civil industry, we give full play to the advantages of military technology and equipment capabilities, and vigorously develop a series of civilian products, forming special vehicles, complete sets of machinery and equipment, pressure vessels, hoses, artistic statues and other product series, which enjoy a high reputation in the market. It has made significant contributions to the modernization of my country's national defense and the construction of the national economy. At present, the Fourth Academy of Aerospace Science and Industry is in a period of great opportunities for vigorous development. The Academy will further strengthen management, strengthen research and development capabilities, improve core competitiveness, and make strides towards a first-class aerospace carrier technology research institute.
China Aerospace Science and Industry Vehicle Technology Research Institute (referred to as the "New Fourth Academy"), was integrated and reorganized by the former China Aerospace Science and Industry Corporation Fourth Research Institute and Ninth Research Institute, and was listed in Wuhan on December 30, 2011. The establishment of the New Fourth Academy signifies that China Aerospace Science and Industry Corporation has taken an important step in "promoting the second entrepreneurship and seeking leapfrog development."
The original four institutes were established in July 2002 by the China Aerospace Science and Industry Corporation to professionally reorganize its affiliated units. It is the main body and technical master unit that specializes in the development and production of a certain aerospace model system in my country. It has created a history of Chinese aerospace. A number of firsts, a number of independently developed models participated in the 35th, 50th, and 60th anniversary of the National Day military parade.
The original Ninth Institute was listed in April 2007, and its predecessor was the 066 base established with the personal approval of Premier Zhou Enlai . The institute is an important R&D and production base for model products and a R&D and production base for special off-road vehicles and chassis in China. It successfully developed a series of key aerospace models in my country, which filled the gap in China's aerospace field. A total of 80 sets of its various models and supporting special vehicle chassis were reviewed at the 50th and 60th anniversary of the National Day.
The China Academy of Aerospace Science, Industry and Transportation Technology (New Fourth Academy) has formed agglomeration effect and development synergy by coordinating resource allocation, which is not only conducive to the scientific optimization of resource allocation, forming a stronger overall advantage, but also can further utilize the existing advantages of both parties to expand New markets and fields will better realize the intensive and large-scale development of the equipment manufacturing industry, and realize the leap to the first-class domestic and internationally renowned high-end equipment manufacturing and service enterprises.
