CAS Fleet was built with national major science and technology infrastructure Research Vessel "Kexue" as flag. It owns 10 research vessels of four series with research scope ranging from coastal regions to offshore areas and deep sea, namely "Kexue", "Shiyan", "Tansuo", and "Chuangxin", together with two shore-based support platforms in Qingdao and Guangzhou. While integrating land and sea research, CAS Fleet centers on key needs in "Entering Deep Sea", "Exploring Deep Sea", and "Developing Deep Sea". It has conducted comprehensive, stereoscopic, full-depth observation and exploration in Western Pacific, East Indian Ocean, South China Sea, and marine systems of other sea areas, thus offering strong support to the efforts of building a maritime power at a faster pace.
