China Launch Own GPS | China's Rise | Global Positioning System (GPS)

CHINA'S RISE

China's remarkable achievement: After America's GPS, Russia's Glonass and Europe's Galileo, China's BDS (rolled out ahead of schedule) become the fourth global navigation satellite system.

With BDS, China can employ guide strike weapons in war even if access to GPS were denied.

Named after the Chinese term for the 'Big Dipper', the BeiDuo system started serving China in 2000 and the Asia-Pacific region in 2012.

'BIG DIPPER'

The Big Dipper is an asterism in the constellation Ursa Major (the Great Bear). One of the most familiar star shaped in the northern sky, it is a useful navigation tool

GLOBAL POSITIONING SYSTEM

GPS is a system. It's made up of three parts: satellites, ground stations, and receivers.

The GPS system is provided by the United States government, which can selectively deny access to the system, as happened to the Indian Military in 1999 during the Kargil War, or degrade the service at any time.

COUNTRIES ADVANCING

The Russian Global Navigation Satellite System (GLONASS) was developed contemporaneously with GPS

China's BieDou Navigation Satellite System is due to achieve global reach in 2020. There are also the European Union Galileo positioning system, and India's NAVIC.

Japan's Quasi-Zenith Satellite System will be a GPS satellite-based augmentation system to enhance GPS's accuracy.

PAKISTAN DITCHING GPS

Pakistan became the first country to use the BeiDou system ending its reliance on the Global Positioning System (GPS).

Pakistan started used it way back in 2014 when it was in its initial stages. BeiDou is used for CPEC projects

USES IN CHINA

In China, about 6.17 million vehicles, 35,6000 postal and express delivery vehicles, as well as 80,000 buses in 36 major cities, use BDS.

The system is also used in 3,230 inland river navigation facilities and 2,960 marine navigation facilities.

CHINA'S AMBITIONS

In addition to national defense, applications for the navigation system are being developed for the domestic economy and private sector.

Space development is key to the Made in China 2025 strategy, as Beijing aims for BDS to become a base for the world's high-tech industry.

MADE IN CHINA 2025

The end goal of the MIC 2025 being self-sufficiency for domestic companies would then enable Chinese companies to compete for a great foothold in global markets.

Many foreign business people in China have seen the effort to make domestic companies self-sufficient as creating an unfair playing field in the Chinese market, which would then have a knock-on effect in other markets as Chinese companies expand abroad.
