China will complete its own GPS system in 2020

On Friday it became known that the formation of the Chinese satellite navigation system Beidou-3 (an analogue of the American GPS or Russian GLONASS) will be completed after the launch of the last two satellites in the first half of 2020.

Project manager Ran Chenqi told reporters that the core of the positioning system was completed this month. In total, the Beidou-3 constellation will include 24 satellites.

According to him, the system has "high performance indicators, includes new technological systems, high localization, a wide network and covers a large number of users."

The full Beidow-3 system will be completed by June 2020.

But Chinese engineers do not plan to stop there. By 2035, the next fourth generation of the navigation system will be put into operation, which will become even smarter and at the same time more accessible for connection.
