Business Review for the Period

The Group's "Cloud" project panned out and has since operated well, with base technological institute constructed. As at 30 June 2016, the "Cloud" project located in Dongguan base has operated steadily for more than six months. The platforms under the "Cloud" project regarding space information and loading were all in normal operation, providing important big data basis for city surveillance, ecological monitoring and fire warning. Meanwhile, the "Cloud" project located in Zunyi base has completed the system set-up and testing in full. At present, the "Cloud" has already been conveyed to the base headquarters for set-up and operation. Test flight will be conducted once the customer completed the construction of take-off base. Besides, the "Cloud" projects have gradually started running in the PRC cities and have successively entered into the design and implementation stages.

The Group finished the design of the "Solarship" and started to build the prototype and conducted flying tests.

During the period, the Group's low-level flying transport platform "Solarship" has finished a number of prototype models design, followed by building prototypes and conducting flying tests. "Solarship" is a large and new-concept flying apparatus. In terms of design, it combines the technical features and edges with airship and fixed-wing aircraft. It also integrates the design concept of solar clean energy system and idea of pure electric-powered green apparatus in achieving sustainable development. The product flies at altitudes between 1,000 meters and 3,500 meters, with maximum loading capacity of 30 tonnes and longest transport distance of 1,000 kilometers. It is also eco-friendly and has a short take-off and landing distance.

The Group has now already teamed up with related departments of the Canadian government to further conduct progress flying tests and put into commercial operation of the latest version of the prototype. Recently the design proposals go smoothly and are expected to carry out public testing and flight in 2016 and in early 2017.

"KuangChi Martin Jetpack" started full safety tests and stepped further towards commercial use

"KuangChi Martin Jetpack", the world's first commercial and practical jetpack, is the Group's "black technology product" from the future. It is designed to accomplish a flying revolution for individuals. During the Period, the Group also completed the testing, production and assembling of "KuangChi Martin Jetpack". The Group aimed to complete the repeated safety tests of series I of "KuangChi Martin Jetpack" before delivery, so as to ensure its good performance for emergency rescue, police search and rescue, civil and commercial use, and high-end flying experience.

With a regard to the safety systems, the Group have conducted repeated tests and verification on its safety systems such as automatic hovering system, ballistic parachute system and pilot protection structure. Series I of "KuangChi Martin Jetpack" is expected to commence commercial operation in 2017.

The near space tourism project is planned to take off this year
During the period, the Group began its design and development effort on the manned version of the "Traveler", which is the key project for the Group's near space business. The manned version of the "Traveler" is a new model of aerostat for near space tourism. It lifts and floats by helium and integrates aircraft grade life protection system. It is designed to meet the demand for near space tourism, and can be used for developing other scientific loading tests.

Since 2016, the manned version of the "Traveler" has obtained some periodic breakthroughs. The Group will seek to carry out the launch and recovery tests in the second half of the year.
