Civil-military integration: International R & D Center was established airgel technology

August 8 afternoon, the China Aerospace Science and Industry Hospitals 306 (referred to as 306) and Huaxing Metco New Materials Technology (Jiangsu) Co., Ltd. (Huaxing Metco), held a signing ceremony in Beijing Aerospace City, founded [123 ] aerogels international technology research and development center, trying to build the advanced international and domestic leading level of airgel technology research and development base. Airgel experts in the field, Tongji University, Professor Shen Jun introduction, airgel materials are known in the world\’s lightest solid material, it has a great surface area and low thermal conductivity, thermal, optical, acoustic and electrical in on has unique characteristics, and has broad prospects for development in the aerospace, defense industry, construction, oil, petrochemical and other fields. 306 Director Cao Hui said in his speech, the newly established International airgel technology R & D center will be built, including the entire test, test and evaluation platform for research and development centers in five years, set up more than 30 innovative research team, in 10 to access to technology application of the results of a large number of international advanced level in 15 years. And R & D center and industrial park as the core, supporting the formation of industrial clusters through the introduction of related businesses, to achieve at least 10 high-value-added industrialization of technological achievements floor, the series airgel material to achieve sales of 100 billion yuan, 100 billion yuan drive the related derivative industries. Ann Chun, general manager of Huaxing Metco said the 306 with Huaxing Metco Together, will make full use of their respective advantages and around the industrial demand at home and abroad, airgel civilian applications in development of derivatives to market-oriented approach and international vision to build \”political – production – research – with\” professional exchange platform to accelerate the process of industrial development airgel, service national economic development. CAS academician Liu was said that bilateral cooperation is \”airgel materials industry is a blessing, but also to promote national energy industry is a major positive.\”
