ComNav Technology takes the lead in tracking the third-generation Beidou satellite signals

Shanghai, China, Jan 10, 2018 – Along with the successful launch of the third-generation Beidou satellites, ComNav Technology proudly announces that we are capable of tracking and analyzing the BD-3 satellite signals to bring better high-precision positioning services in the near future.


Launch of the first pair of the BD-3 MEO satellites on Nov. 5, 2017


As the world’s fourth navigation satellite system, the construction of Beidou satellite navigation network consists of three steps: experimental period from 2000 to 2003, regional coverage by 2012 and global reach by 2020. On Nov 5, 2017, the launch of two third-generation Beidou satellites indicates that China has begun to upgrade Beidou Navigation Satellite System with global-coverage capabilities according to the China Satellite Navigation Office. The new-generation Beidou satellites feature better accuracy, stability and signal clarity thanks to improvements in laser communication devices, intersatellite links and atomic clocks. Moreover, 18 third-generation Beidou satellites will be launched by the end of 2018 to cover all nations involved in the Belt and Road Initiative. By the end of 2020, worldwide high-precision GNSS users are able to benefit from global reach of the third-generation Beidou system.


ComNav Technology, as a standard setter in Chinese high-precision GNSS industry, takes the lead in tracking and analyzing the latest format BD-3 satellite signals: B1C & B2a from No.19 & No.20 satellites. The following figure shows BD-3 No.20 signal tracking through SinoGNSS K708 GNSS OEM board. With strong R&D capability in high-precision GNSS field, ComNav Technology would like to grow with the third-generation Beidou navigation system to bring better positioning services all the time.
