Beijing, June 25 (Petra) - A Chinese satellite of the BeiDou Navigation Satellite System (BDS) lifted off Tuesday from the Xichang Satellite Launch Center in southwest China.
La Chine a envoye dans l'espace un nouveau satellite du systeme de navigation par satellite Beidou (BeiDou Navigation Satellite System ou BDS) depuis le Centre de lancement de satellites de Xichang, dans la province du Sichuan.
For navigation, the device incorporates a u-blox NEO-M8N receiver using GPS, GLONASS, Galileo or BeiDou. It captures images with dual cameras--including a 13-megapixel rear-facing and 5-megapixel front-facing--and can be optionally outfitted with a high-speed 2D imager.
By leveraging the nationwide BeiDou ground-based augmentation system and using RTD (real-time differential) technology, the service is able to pinpoint a location with accuracy of 20 centimeters in an open space, which is even narrower than a lane.
China's 500m Aperture Spherical Telescope, also called Fast; the Beidou Navigation Satellite System; and 5G technology are reportedly set to make their debut at the next World Expo, which will open its doors in Dubai on 20 October, 2020.
"The Topcon advanced GNSS chipset with Universal Tracking Channels technology allows the HiPer VR to automatically track signals from all available constellations -- including GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, Beidou, IRNSS, QZSS, SBAS -- now and into the future."
In fact, one of its key features is Beidou, China's domestic satellite navigation system.
A self-driving tractor with application of BeiDou Navigation Satellite System (BDS) was tested successfully Sunday in northwestern Tunisia.
A total of 17 types of Long March carrier rockets have been developed and put into use since 1970, ensuring the implementation of a series of key space projects including manned space program, lunar exploration, BeiDou Navigation Satellite System (BDS) and the Gaofen Earth observation project.
