By then, the deployment of the Beidou Global Constellation will be successfully completed.
Yang Changfeng introduced that the Beidou system is the largest space system with the largest scale, the widest coverage and the highest performance requirements in China so far, and has contributed to the development of the world's satellite navigation. In particular, the construction of the Beidou global system has achieved a high-density launch network of 17 stars, 17 carriers, and 29 stars in two years.
The Chinese Beidou system has been widely used in various industries such as transportation, disaster reduction and relief, and has also played an active role in the prevention and control of this outbreak. For example, more than 70% of smartphones connected to the Internet in China already provide Beidou services.
