Beidou

A satellite-based radio navigation system developed by the China Space Science and Technology Group. Covering only China with four GEO and one MEO satellites launched from 2000 to 2007, the system became operational in 2003. A global system based on up to 35 MEO satellites with accuracy of 10 meters is expected. Beidou is Chinese for the Big Dipper. The North Star, which has been used for centuries for navigation, is located in the Big Dipper. See GPS and GEO.

The pseudo-range difference is one of the most mature BeiDou differential positioning technologies.
"From today, wherever you go, Beidou will be with you, anywhere, anytime," added Chengqi.
'The cooperation is meant to be a blueprint for Beidou's expansion to other Belt and Road nations, however, ostensibly ending its clients' reliance on the American military-run GPS network that Chinese officials fear is monitored and manipulated by the United States,' according to the dispatch.
The twin satellites are the 33rd and 34th of the BeiDou navigation system.
BEIJING -- China's domestically developed Beidou Navigation Satellite System, by now, has covered nearly 30 countries involved in the Belt and Road Initiative, including Pakistan, Egypt and Indonesia, the office noted.
With the availability of new GPS signals and additional GNSS constellations (Galileo, GLONASS, BeiDou, QZSS, SBAS, IRNSS), the International GNSS service (IGS) has introduced the version 3 of the RINEX format.
On completion, Beidou, which means Big Dipper in Chinese, will
The platform support 15 global RF bands and include support for GPS, GLONASS, Gallileo and BeiDou. The Snapdragon Wear 1200 also features an integrated appilcations processor for Linux and ThreadX based applications and is scalable to support VoLTE, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.
Antenna Company's (Pleasanton, CA) AC30011 SuperShape antenna is a multi-constellation antenna for location tracking and positioning applications, supporting GPS, GLONASS, and BeiDou frequency bands.
The demand for these services has grown continuously and with the introduction of new constellations such as BeiDou and Galileo, the number of GNSS satellites has also increased continuously.
With the rapid development of other Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) such as GLONASS and BeiDou, a possible way to fill this gap is to adopt the multiconstellation approach [14-16].
