A large-scaled whole-chain unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) industrial base will settle in southern Beijing's Daxing District, according to the top management of China Academy of Aerospace Aerodynamics (CAAA) under China Aerospace Sci & Tech Corporation, Beijing Daily reported.

The UAV industrial base, which covers a total area of 134 ha, will be the first of its kind in China. The base will cluster flagship enterprises and regional S&T leaders in the sophisticated industry within three years. It will also develop a top-notch technological service system and explore new modes for commercial application so as to turn itself into a UAV tech and service hub with high value-added.

The industrial base's estimated output will reach 10 billion yuan (US$1.6 billion) by 2015, 30 billion yuan (US$4.8 billion) by 2020, and more than 100 billion yuan (US$16.1 billion) by 2025.

By then, the industrial base will integrate all links on the industrial chain, from S&T, manufacturing, test flights, marketing, after-sales services and commercial applications.

Daxing, a high-tech manufacturing industrial belt in the city, is expected to be the most important industrial cluster area in the future.
