China National Radio (CNR) reported on a recent announcement from the China Satellite Navigation System Management Office, stating that China has developed satellite anti-interference equipment, an “electromagnetic shield,” for its Beidou Satellite Navigation System. The Beidou system is fully capable of covering the Asia-Pacific region.
The Beidou System can be used for both military and civilian purposes. It has a positioning accuracy of 10 meters, a velocity measurement accuracy of 0.2 meters/second, and a timing accuracy of 10 nanoseconds. It is said that the system is equal to the Global Positioning System (GPS) of the United States especially in positioning accuracy in the Asia-Pacific region.
