At 9:43 am on June 23, 2020, with the order of the Xichang Satellite Launch Center, the Long March 3B rocket took off, and the "Ending Star" of the Beidou 3 system flew into the sky, and the launch was a complete success.
Today's success is not achieved overnight. The construction of the Beidou system lasted 26 years, after three huge steps. In 1994, the construction of Beidou No. 1 system was officially launched.
In 2009, the construction of the Beidou-3 system officially started. Until June 23 this year, 30 satellites were finally launched. At this point, the Beidou system finally surmounted many obstacles and presented it to the world in a complete manner.
As the Beidou system has evolved into a "complete body", its functions and performance have been further improved to achieve full service capabilities, and it is embracing the world with an open mind.
The "complete" Beidou system will provide seven major services. In China and surrounding areas, the services provided by the satellite-based enhancement, ground-based enhancement, and precise single-point positioning will lay a solid foundation for Beidou's high-precision ubiquitous application.
Adhering to an inclusive and open attitude, Beidou is highlighting an increasingly important role on the international stage. As of the end of 2019, the domestic Beidou basic products have been exported to more than 120 countries and regions. Based on Beidou's land identification, precision agriculture, smart construction, smart ports, etc., it has been successfully applied in ASEAN, South Asia, Eastern Europe, West Asia, Africa and other places .
At present, the Beidou global signal technical indicators have basically been verified, and the first 5G mobile communication international standard supporting the Beidou No. 3 new signal has been successfully established; the development of Beidou mid-rail search and rescue load related standard documents and network access tests have achieved stage results; the first Beidou ship The terminal detection standard was approved by the International Electrotechnical Commission.
