China’s Satnav System Launches

According to a report in the Register, China’s Beidou satellite navigational system is up and running, with 10 satellites in orbit. In 2012, another 6 will be launched, and the China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation plans to have more than 30 satellites in the network by 2020.

More exciting for those living in the Asia-Pacific region, Beidou will be a free service.



Further, the company is working on interoperability with the U.S.’s GPS, Russia’s GLONASS, and EU’s Galileo systems. Reportedly, Beidou already has 100,000 users.

Seriously it better be a free system. I do think it is great that they are looking for interoperability with the other navigation systems it certainly will make it more robust.
