China launches Robotic Spy Bird to Boost Government Surveillance and Espionage

China has expanded its monitoring horizons through a flock of robotic doves equipped with high-tech surveillance technology, currently in the skies of at least five Chinese provinces, including the restive Xinjiang region, providing additional experience within the country’s already advanced surveillance network, Dune-like drones are being developed by researchers at Northwestern Polytechnical University in Shaanxi Province, who have previously worked on hidden fighter planes used by the Chinese Air Force.

The spy program bears the code name Dove. One of the researchers said the launch of the technology is still in its early stages. Yang Wenqing, an assistant professor at the university’s aviation faculty who worked on the program, said, “The technique is still not. Is widely deployed compared to other types of UAVs used today. We believe that the technology has good potential for future large-scale use, as it has some unique capabilities to meet the demand for UAVs in both the military and civilian sectors.”

Each robot is equipped with GPS technology, a high definition camera and a satellite-controlled flight control system to allow remote control of the aircraft. UAVs benefit from a small electric motor to make the wings flutter. Earth is distinguished from true birds.

Robotic Spy Bird specially designed programs help overcome any vibration movements to ensure that the camera has clear images and fixed video. Professor Li Yachao, a military radar researcher at the National Defense Technology Laboratory for radar signal processing at Xian, So vibrant that it may fool even the most sensitive radar systems, and that using camouflage on the outer body of the aircraft can distort the radar signature.

The idea of ​​Robotic Spy Bird seems elusive, but has become a reality to a large extent. China is currently used Robotic Spy Bird to monitor people all over the country. More than 30 military and government agencies have deployed Robotic Spy Bird in at least five provinces in recent years, Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region in the far west of China, a vast area bordering Mongolia, Russia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Afghanistan, Pakistan and India, home to a large number of Muslims. Beijing has long regarded it as a bastion of separatism.

Another researcher involved in the Dove project said the goal was to develop a new generation of biologically inspired drone capable of camouflaging itself to avoid detection by humans or radar. The machines within the current robotic herd could replicate about 90 Percent of the real pigeon movement, adding that it also produces very little noise, making it very difficult to detect from the ground, so vibrant that real birds often fly by their side.

The team conducted nearly 2,000 test flights before deploying drones in realistic situations. One experiment in northern China’s Inner Mongolia included flying birds over a herd of sheep, animals known for their strong hearing and ability to feel easily dismayed. No interest at all in the aircraft flying over it.

The Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics released in 2012 “Tian Ying”, an eagle-sized bird. According to information on government websites, the Harbin Institute of Technology, China’s top defense research university, Pilot with large wings and ability to work in the thin air located in the high plateaus.

An assessment by an unidentified military research center concluded that the drone was of practical value, with its ability to stay in the air for more than 20 minutes and travel 5 kilometers, said Gan Xiaohua, chief engineer of the Air Force Equipment Research Institute in Beijing PLA, Dove’s unique design means that it can transform electrical power into a highly efficient mechanical force.

China recently tested a fleet of Drones ships capable of attacking enemy ships in the form of a shark. Earlier this month, 56 vessels were conducted in the South China Sea to demonstrate their ability to operate in a coordinated formation during the naval war “Small warships can attack the enemy in large numbers similar to unmanned drones as soon as they are armed,” said Li Jie, a Chinese navy expert at the time. “The mother ship controls the squadron during combat, making it easy to deploy and rely.”
