China Eagle is building the country’s largest production base for industrial drones.

A Beijing-based UAV developer, China Eagle is maker of the Divine Eagle and the Sharp Sword stealth drones. The firm also works with the state oceanic administration to produce drones for shore patrols.

The production base in Jingjiang’s economic and technological development zone in east China’s Jiangsu province is expected to produce its first industrial UAV this month. The drones will be designed for mapping, aerial inspection and unmanned cargo transport.

With an investment of 510 million yuan ($74 million), China Eagle’s new production base is designed with an annual production capacity of 5,000 units. Its total output value is estimated at 3 billion yuan a year. Analysts say the general aviation sector is unable to meet the needs of industrial customers in China, where demand is high.
