The second China Military and Civilian Integration Expo has opened in Beijing's National Convention Center. The three-day event is designed to drive forward the development of defense technology. It is being hosted by China's Institute of Command and Control.

An open platform for the exchange and integration of military and civilian technology. Defense-related enterprises, delegations from the People's Liberation Army, the Ministry of Public Security, and military research institutes have all been invited to the expo.

"Through in-depth development of military-civilian integration, military technologies are gradually applied in civilian fields, making high-tech equipment available to commercial markets. At the same time, we have also emphasized the importance of encouraging more civilian product suppliers to actively participate in the defense-building process," said Dai Hao, Director-General of China's Institute of Command and Control.

Visitors to the expo can see sophisticated technologies that boast both civilian and military applications. These include command information system,  the virtual combat training system, cyber security, unmanned systems, emergency rescue system, as well as border monitoring and control system.

"We have the virtual combat training system here on display. Using a virtual reality technology and simulation system, 3D training scenarios could be built. With V-R facilities, soldiers could feel as if they are in a real battlefield and practice tactical combat skills," said Zhang Ke, Vice General Manager of Beijing Huaru Technology.

Many say technological innovations have upgraded military construction.

"This is an autonomous boat. It can be used for hydrology research, scientific exploration, hydrographic surveys, emergency search and rescues, security patrols and other work on the seas. It can also carry unmanned underwater vehicles for performing a variety of tasks," said Zhang Yunfei, Chairman of Yunzhou-Tech.

Innovation is crucial to the competitiveness of the armed forces. Officers and researchers have been working together to enhance the efficiency of national defense systems and turn cutting-edge military technology into real combat capacity.
