As a celebrated expert in radar and signal processing technology, you have laid the foundation for the new radar system for ocean detection. As a pioneer, you have made a contribution to the great-leap-forward development of oceanic remote detection technology. Over these four decades, you have guided and cultivated a strategic and innovative team, which has had the initiative of developing science and technology for coastal defense. You have taken the lead in developing a new radar system nationwide, due to which the first all-time and all-weather radar in China with BVR and air detection performance was invented. It is of great significance in ocean defense and state territory and sovereignty. This achievement plays a necessary role in guarding national sea frontier, expanding the scope of our sea defense strategies, making China step into the international forefront of marine remote warning technology, and making a tremendous contribution to state oceanic defense.
