China has developed its accede service to compete with the global positioning system (GPS), which will be positive later this month.

The Beidou navigation network will improve location-related services and provide China with an additional level of independence from the United States, whose air force operates GPS.

The first Beidou satellites were instigated twenty years ago, and the second and third waves entered orbit in 2012 and 2015. The last satellite will be operational in the coming weeks, but no specific date has been given out yet.

Beidou Navigation Network

Initially conceived in the 1990s as an antidote to the Chinese army’s dependence on American technology, Beidou’s ship system is expected to cost China $10 billion in the region.

By launching its 35th satellite, Beidou will strengthen its leadership in the American GPS, which supports 31 satellites. Beidou can recognize the location of a device with an accuracy of 10 cm in APAC, compared to the limit of 30 cm reached by the American system. United States

The Beidou project is designed to protect Chinese communication networks, especially in a military context, and to improve the target of weapons. It also reduces the risk of interfering with the country’s GPS access in the event of intense hostilities between China and the United States.

According to Andrew Dempster, director of the Australian Space Engineering Research Center, Beidou took advantage of the delay on stage because he learned from a GPS project and took advantage of the technological advances that have to take place in the meantime.

“It has certain signals that have a wider bandwidth, which allows for greater accuracy [and] has less flat orbits for satellites, which makes it easier to maintain constellations,” said Dempster.

According to Chinese state media, the services provided by Beidou networks have been supplied to customers in around 120 countries. Thailand and Pakistan are the first foreigners to use the service, and they signed it in 2013.


Meanwhile, in 2019, more than 70% of smartphones operating in China depended on the state navigation network.
