Storyline


The 13th meeting of International Committee on Global Navigation Satellite Systems (ICG) closed Friday in Xi'an City, northwest China's Shaanxi Province, adopting a joint declaration to develop global satellite systems together.

During the conference, more than 400 representatives from 16 countries and regions exchanged ideas on more than 20 topics on the development of global navigation satellite system (GNSS). A joint declaration was finally issued to develop GNSS together, involving the world's four major satellite navigation systems – China's Beidou, U.S.'s GPS, Russia's GLONASS and EU's Galileo, as well as two regional satellite navigation systems of Japan and India. Major suppliers will further strengthen technological innovation, transparency of services, as well as cooperation and exchanges, in an effort to better serve humanity.

As the organizer of the meeting, China raised a series of proposals including the standardization of GNSS featured services, deep space navigation capability construction and satellite off-track security. In addition, China also held various activities such as the Beidou system construction and application exhibition, and ancient Chinese navigation technology exhibition, which was highly praised by the participants.

"We plan to launch the last satellite of this year on Nov 19, which also marks the basic completion of the Beidou-3 system. We will be able to provide basic navigation services to the world before the end of this year. We also hope that through the construction of the Beidou-3 system, we will further improve the performance of our systems and provide a better satellite navigation system for the world," said Ran Chengqi, director of China Satellite Navigation Office.
