Policy Interpretation

The “Implementation Plan” and “Several Measures” are further added

Aiming at the “first phalanx” in the country

At present, Nanjing’s low-altitude economy has gathered more than 100 related enterprises, and has been laid out in key industries such as low-altitude manufacturing, low-altitude support, low-altitude flight and comprehensive services, forming a good industrial ecology, and the level of strong chain supplementation and chain extension of low-altitude industry has been significantly enhanced. In 2023, the revenue of the city’s low-altitude economy-related industries will be nearly 3 billion yuan.

At the meeting, the “Nanjing Implementation Plan for Promoting the High-quality Development of Low-altitude Economy (2024-2026)” (hereinafter referred to as the “Implementation Plan”) and “Several Measures of Nanjing on Supporting the High-quality Development of Low-altitude Economy” (hereinafter referred to as “Several Measures”) were officially released and interpreted, striving to promote the city’s low-altitude economic development level to rank first in the country through the implementation of these two documents.

Improve the level of low-altitude industrial agglomeration

Focusing on enterprise cultivation, industrial support, carrier construction, and excellent brand, four tasks were proposed, including laying out a new track for low-altitude future industries, cultivating and expanding the low-altitude economic industrial chain, building a high-level industrial carrying area, and organizing and carrying out major activities in the low-altitude field.

Expand and cultivate low-altitude application scenarios

Focusing on scenario expansion, rich business formats, and characteristic consumption, three tasks were proposed: creating a demonstration of “government-side” application scenarios, exploring the practice of “transportation-side” application scenarios, and encouraging the innovation of “commercial-side” application scenarios.

In terms of building a low-altitude science and technology innovation source center

Focusing on giving full play to the advantages of scientific and technological innovation and talent gathering, three tasks were proposed: promoting breakthroughs in low-altitude scientific and technological innovation, developing new forms of low-altitude scientific and technological services, and consolidating the support of low-altitude industrial talents.

Improve the supporting measures for the low-altitude economy

Focusing on core services, external support, and strengthening supervision, four tasks were proposed, including cultivating the technical service capacity of airworthiness certification, establishing a low-altitude economic expert committee and a low-altitude economic industry association, and establishing a low-altitude safety guarantee mechanism.

In the “Several Measures”, not only the leading departments of 12 specific measures have been clarified, but also the low-altitude economic development has been promoted through the cash reward and subsidy policy of up to 10 million yuan.

Publication of results

Four major technical achievements, four categories of 40 routes

Amplify the advantages of resource endowment

will be there

Four low-altitude intelligent advanced technology achievements were released01

QKD system for UAV mobile platform applications

The team of academician Zhu Shining of Nanjing University completed the quantum entanglement distribution test and mobile millimeter wave communication test based on UAV, which realized low-latency, high-speed and high-bandwidth signal transmission under classical optical communication for the first time in the world, and improved the security of communication links based on quantum key distribution technology, preventing key information from being leaked and tampered with, and helping to improve the security protection level of national sensitive information such as low-altitude airspace data.02

Cellular-free massive MIMO technology for 6G

Based on the world’s first 6G cellular-free radio access network architecture, Purple Mountain Lab has achieved a more than 10-fold improvement in wireless transmission capabilities such as spectrum efficiency, peak rate, and transmission latency compared with 5G. Among them, the key technical indicators have reached the international leading level, fully empowering 6G air-ground collaborative communication, achieving full coverage of 800 square kilometers of airspace at a single station, and significantly reducing the cost of airspace networking construction.


Blockchain-based low-altitude safety management and control technology

Based on the characteristics of blockchain technology, such as decentralization, non-tampering, and traceability, Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics has successfully developed the first low-altitude safety management and control platform in China, empowering drone manufacturers, mobile network operators, data service nodes and regulatory agencies, realizing effective management, supervision and guarantee of low-altitude spectrum resources, and maintaining communication order and security.04

5G-A integrated synaesthesia technology for low-altitude intelligent networking

On the basis of the 5G wireless communication network, the Nanjing Civil Unmanned Aviation Test Zone uses radar reflection technology to weave a low-altitude perception network, so that the test area has key capabilities such as target trajectory tracking, black flight intrusion detection, and electronic fence warning. This technology is a key step from 5G to 6G, and further consolidates China’s international leading position in 5G-A communication and perception technology.

Nanjing has opened up a “low-altitude route”, created a “low-altitude +” innovative integration model, and set up 40 routes in five categories, including low-altitude inspection, low-altitude express delivery, low-altitude medical material transportation, low-altitude sightseeing, and low-altitude buses, focusing on scenarios such as Yangtze River protection, medical material transportation, science and technology, cultural tourism, and low-altitude express delivery, so as to create a more intelligent, efficient and green global low-altitude transportation system.
