    "China's satellite navigation industry sees rapid development"

    http://www.xinhuanet.com/english/201..._138061197.htm

    China's satellite navigation and location services industry achieved a total output value of 301.6 billion yuan (about 43.93 billion U.S. dollars) in 2018, up 18.3 percent from the previous year, according to an annual industry report.

    The data was published in the White Paper on the Development of China's Satellite Navigation and Location Services Industry (2019), which was released by the GNSS (global navigation satellite system) and LBS (location-based service) Association of China on Wednesday.

    The present BeiDou Navigation Satellite System (BDS) is made up of a mixture of BDS-2 and BDS-3 satellites. By October 2020 it will be all BDS-3 satellites giving more accuracy and reliability, as well as global coverage.

    http://www.xinhuanet.com/english/201..._138067566.htm

    The BDS-2 system has provided stable and reliable service since it went into operation, and its positioning accuracy has improved from 10 meters to six meters.

    The BDS-2 system and BDS-3 system will jointly provide services before October 2020, and after that the BDS-3 system will be the main force.

    "China to complete BeiDou-3 satellite system by 2020"

    http://www.xinhuanet.com/english/201..._138119405.htm

    China's BeiDou-3 system, a global geolocation network, is expected to be completed in 2020, with a total of 35 satellites, researchers at a conference on the BeiDou Navigation Satellite System (BDS) said.

    China has deployed three systems, BDS-1, BDS-2 and BDS-3, to provide accurate positioning and navigation services to the world, said Jin Shuanggen, a researcher at Shanghai Astronomical Observatory, Chinese Academy of Sciences, at the second China (Nanjing) BeiDou Satellite Navigation Application Expo and Beidou Summit Forum.

    "Traditional satellites navigation service is hardly available in the interior of buildings, underground, underwater and other locations. The BDS system provides better accuracy in these locations," Jin said.

    China inches closer to complete their version of GPS.

    https://spacenews.com/china-launches...gation-system/

    A Long March 3B lifted off from the Xichang Satellite Launch Center in southwest China at 2:09 p.m. Eastern Monday, sending a Beidou satellite toward an inclined geosynchronous orbit.

    The launch occurred within a window indicated by the issuance of an airspace closure notice days earlier. Spectator footage provided the first indication of liftoff, with mission success announced by a media arm of the People’s Liberation Army just over an hour after launch.

    The mission involved the 21st satellite of the Beidou-3 rollout and the second to be placed in an inclined geosynchronous orbit.

    "Galileo system’s woes may provide opening for China’s BeiDou"

    http://www.globaltimes.cn/content/1157850.shtml

    The breakdown of the Galileo navigation satellite system over the weekend has triggered users' concern about the service, and it could bring opportunities to China's navigation satellites to serve European clients, analysts said.

    The entire Galileo system suffered an unexpected signal outage beginning on Thursday, July 11 at 1 am Coordinated Universal Time, (9 am Beijing time).

    A note posted on gsc-europa.eu, the official website of the European Global Navigation Satellite Systems Agency, showed that 22 of the 24 satellites remain "not usable" as of press time, and the status of only two satellites was shown as "testing."

    The signal outage has persisted for more than three days and as yet no word has been given on the cause or how long the outage will last.

    "It is a breakdown of the entire system," an anonymous insider who is close to the navigating system told the Global Times on Sunday. "Although the system is still in the initial stage, it is the first time to see such a big incident lasting for such a long time," he added.

    The European Union's satellite navigation system, Galileo, has been down for four days due to a technical incident on the ground, the European Global Navigation Satellite Systems Agency (GSA) said on Sunday.

    As of Monday morning, 24 of the 26 satellites in Galileo's constellation are still "not usable", according to the GSA's system status.


    The GSA has so far provided little information for the major outage, which started on Thursday, with the agency saying at the time that "the signals may not be available nor meet the minimum performance levels."

    It then told service users on Saturday that "the cause of the technical incident is identified" and on Sunday revealed that the incident is "related to its ground infrastructure."

    "Experts are working to restore the situation as soon as possible. An Anomaly Review Board has been immediately set up to analyse the exact root cause and to implement recovery actions," it added.

    "China's Beidou system enhances life standards"

    http://www.chinadaily.com.cn/a/20190...056401374.html

    The Beidou system, a satellite navigation system independently innovated and operated in China, is leading Chinese citizens to a better life with its significant roles in agriculture, transportation and disaster relief, according to a report from Xinhua.

    It has been applied in key national industries and the mass consumer field, an official at the 10th China Satellite Navigation Annual Conference said. The first beneficiary is China’s agricultural development.

    “There was no satellite navigation in the 1950s. People would farm little by little with pickaxes,” said Peng Rongjun, head of a State-owned farm in Northeast China’s Heilongjiang province.

    However, the introduction of the Beidou system has changed everything: Not only have manual efforts been saved, but work efficiency has improved.

    Now the positioning precision has improved to 2.5 centimeters, and the average daily volume of a single agricultural machine has achieved a remarkable leap to 30 percent more than that of traditional ways.

    "Number of China's in-orbit BeiDou satellites reaches 39"

    http://www.xinhuanet.com/english/201..._138367830.htm

    China's BeiDou Navigation Satellite System (BDS), a global geolocation network, currently has 39 in-orbit satellites and is expected to be completed in 2020, authorities said Wednesday.

    At present, the BDS, independently constructed and operated by China, has officially provided RNSS (Radio Navigation Satellite System) services worldwide, with a total of 39 in-orbit satellites, after high-density launches of BeiDou-3 since 2017, said Yang Jun, deputy director of China's Satellite Navigation System Management Office, at a two-day conference on aerospace technology innovation in Shanghai, which concluded on Thursday.

    China plans to send five to seven BDS satellites into space this year and two to four in 2020, which will help fully complete the BDS global network.
