Name: Qinan Xu
Position: Academician of China Engineering Academy
Qinan Xu, born in 1936, is a native of Ningbo City, Zhejiang Province, and a member of the CPC. He is a famous expert in the field of high technology of deep-sea submersible in China. Mr. Xu graduated from the Department of Shipbuilding (predecessor of School of Naval Architecture, Ocean & Civil Engineering) of Shanghai Jiao Tong University in 1958 and was the deputy chief engineer of China Ship Scientific Research Center.
Mr. Xu has been engaged in the development of deep-sea submersible for a long time, and is a representative person who has followed and caught up with the process of international advanced level in this field. He was the chief designer of five underwater submersibles and creatively developed several types of deep-sea manned submersibles and underwater robots, with working depths evolving from 300m, 600m and 1000m to 6000m and 7000m. There are four types: manned, unmanned, tethered and untethered, and three control modes: manned manual control, tethered remote control and untethered intelligent control. Since 2002, Mr. Xu has been the chief designer of the "Jiaolong" submersible, a 7000m deep-sea manned submersible designed and developed independently by China. Mr. Xu has received more than ten awards, including 2 first prizes and 1 second prize of National Science and Technology Progress, the grand prize and first prize of Science and Technology Progress of Chinese Academy of Sciences, the first prize of Shanghai Science and Technology Progress, the first and second prizes of Science and Technology Progress of China State Shipbuilding Corporation Limited, Guanghua Engineering Science and Technology Award, the prize for Science and Technology Progress Award by Ho Leung Ho Lee Foundation. In addition, he has won many honored titles such as Model Worker in Jiangsu Province and Wuxi City, Advanced Individual in "863" Plan, Shanghai Science and Technology Meritorious Worker and 2012 Top Ten National Outstanding Science and Technology Worker, and awarded National May Day Labor Medal, Lifetime Dedication to Ocean Memorial Medal, etc.
