Further details have been revealed about China’s development of a conventionally powered electromagnetic catapult that will reportedly be fitted onto the second of the country’s indigenously built aircraft carriers, commonly referred to as the Type 002.
有关中国发展常规动力电磁弹射器的进一步细节已经被披露,据报道这种电磁弹射器将被安装在本国第二艘自行建造的航空母舰上,通常被称为002型。
 
Rear Admiral Yin Zhuo, director of the People’s Liberation Army Navy’s (PLAN’s) expert consultation committee, was quoted on 16 November by the state-owned China Daily newspaper as saying on China Central Television that the system has been tested with Shenyang Aircraft Corporation (SAC) J-15 carrier-borne fighter aircraft. “J-15s have conducted thousands of take-offs using the electromagnetic launch system,” he said.
官方中国日报在11月16日援引中国人民解放军海军(PLAN)专家咨询委员会主任海军少将尹卓在中国中央电视台报道中的话,该系统已经与沈阳飞机公司(SAC)J-15型舰载战斗机测试。他说:“歼-15已经使用电磁发射系统进行了数以千计的起飞。”
 
China was able to develop the device because its engineers have designed a “state-of-the-art ship-based power system”, said Rear Adm Yin, claiming that his country has “outperformed” the United States in the development of such systems.
中国能够开发这种设备是因为本国工程师们设计了一个“最先进的舰载电力系统”,海军少将尹卓说,他的国家在这种系统的开发上“跑赢了”美国。
 
“Compared with the US we have better technologies in key parts such as motor-control devices and power distribution software. We are leaders in the research and development of integrated electric power systems,” he added.
“与美国相比,我们在电机控制设备和配电软件等关键部分拥有更好的技术。我们是集成电力系统研发的领导者,“他补充说。
 
The Chinese military has yet to announce details regarding the new carrier, the construction of which has reportedly been delayed to include the new catapult system in its configuration.
中国军方尚未公布有关新航空母舰的详细情况,据报道,这种新航空母舰的建造据称已经推迟,将新的弹射系统纳入其配置。
 
On 1 November the Hong Kong-based South China Morning Post ( SCMP ) newspaper had quoted PLAN and Chinese defence industry officials as saying that the Type 002 will be equipped with an electromagnetic catapult.
11月1日,《香港南华早报》援引中国国防部和中国国防工业官员的话说,002型将配备电磁弹射器。
 
Jane’s previously reported that the system is allegedly similar to the General Atomics Electromagnetic Aircraft Launch System (EMALS) being fitted to the US Navy’s (USN’s) latest Gerald R Ford-class carriers.
简氏之前曾报道称,该系统据称与安装在美国海军(USN)最新的杰拉尔德R福特(Gerald R Ford)级航空母舰上的通用原子公司电磁弹射系统(EMALS)类似。
 
However, in a change from how the USN has approached the development of EMALS, sources within the PLAN told SCMP that Chinese industry had developed a new integrated propulsion system (IPS) that would enable the operation of the Chinese-made catapult system without the need to equip the PLAN’s carriers with a nuclear powerplant.
然而,从美国海军(USN)如何渐进发展电磁弹射系统(EMALS)来看,中国人民解放军海军(PLAN)的内部消息人士告诉《香港南华早报》,中国工业已经开发出一种新的集成式推进系统(IPS),可以不需要在中国人民解放军海军(PLAN)航空母舰上装备核动力的情况下操作中国制造的弹射系统。
