A ground system aimed at enhancing the navigation precision of China’s homegrown BeiDou Navigation Satellite System (BDS) was approved in central China’s Hubei Province on Friday, according to NZWeek.

The BeiDou Ground Base Enhancement System (BGBES) is a network consisting of 30 ground base stations, an operating system and a precision positioning system. It was approved by the evaluation committee led by Sun Jiadong, an academician with the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) and chief designer of the BDS.

The system is expected to improve the BDS’ positioning precision to 2 centimeters horizontally and 5 centimeters vertically via tri-band real-time precision positioning technology, and to 1.5 meters with the single-frequency differential navigation technology.
