The chief designer of WZ-10 is Mr. Wu Ximing of the 602nd Research Institute, one of the many top Chinese scientists play important roles in the 863 Program. Mr. Wu had participated in the designs of the armed version of transport helicopters Z-8A and WZ-9, and as the chief designer and project manager of WZ-10, he completed 5 years of work in just 2 years. WZ-10 is the first Chinese helicopter that eventually achieved paperless design, and the all electronic / online design enabled the design work to be completed within a year. In order to complete the necessary development, the 602nd Research Institute and CAIC had jointly built brand-new engineering design center, industrial simulator, aircraft engine ground test center, fatigue laboratory, and full-scale rotary test platform (nicknamed as Iron Bird Platform). With the exception of the engineering design center, all of the rest facilities are claimed to be the largest of their kinds in Asia. The new facilities had helped China to overcome many difficulties it faced in the development and since the end of 2001, the longest test was completed on the full-scale rotary test platform, paving the way for the future test flights. Composite material is widely used in the WZ-10 but China faced difficulties in this field, particularly in the area of survivability during crashes. Huge efforts were spent to domestically develop composite materials able to provide comparable levels of survivability to Western counterparts. This achievement earned a 2nd place in the Commission for Science, Technology and Industry for National Defense (COSTIND) progress reward. The main contractor of the avionics of WZ-10 is the 613th Research Institute, which was responsible of integrating all of the avionics subsystems provided by subcontractors. Although foreign technologies are utilized (particularly French and Israeli, as rumored), this is limited to hardware only. All software applicable to WZ-10 are completely indigenously developed by China on its own. Reportedly, the most time consuming part of the software engineering for WZ-10 was to develop all of the mathematic models needed for WZ-10. Instead of using French standard DIGIBUS, WZ-10 is built to Chinese GJV289A standard, the Chinese equivalent of MIL-STD-1553B. The adaptation of western military standard means that western weaponry can be readily deployed on WZ-10, and the developer claims that all it needed was to add a module or interface to accomplish this. The ease of being compatible with multiple weaponry would also help to expand the export market of WZ-10 in the future.
