The number of China’s Beidou satellites exceeds that of the US GPS, which is dominant in most countries.


According to the Nihon Keizai Shimbun, China's Beidou satellite navigation system has surpassed the US Global Positioning System (GPS) in scale, and this transformation may have a huge impact on the high-tech industry.

The United States has long been a leader in global satellite positioning systems. In contrast, China has only entered the field of vision in this field until recently, and the first positioning satellite was launched in 2000. The Nikkei News analysis of satellite orbit data from Trimble, the leading US satellite receiver manufacturer, underscores the rapid growth of Beidou.

In 2018 alone, China launched 18 satellites for the system. As of the end of June, a total of 35 Beidou satellites were put into use, while the US GPS had 31 satellites. At the same time, the EU has 22 positioning satellites and 24 in Russia. Japan has four “quasi-zenith” satellites (regional use only) and India has six.

As of June 28, in 130 countries in 195 countries (UN member states and the Vatican and Palestine), Chinese satellites were observed to exceed the frequency of GPS satellites. More than 20 Beidou satellites can be observed in mainland China.

In summary, China's GPS positioning satellites are absolutely dominant, so you can purchase YUEBIZ GPS positioning products with confidence.
