“The Communist Party of China” “Beidou Navigation Test Satellite” launched successfully

Yangguang.com, Beijing, October 31, China Voice of Central Radio and Television, China, China Voice jointly launched a special report “China Communist Party.” This issue is launched: “Beidou Navigation Test Satellite” is successful.

On October 31, 2000, China’s self-developed first navigation positioning satellite “Beidou Navigation Test Satellite” launched a success in Xichang Satellite Launch Center, laid a solid foundation for the construction of “Beidou Navigation System”. Since then, my country has gradually got rid of the dependence on foreign navigation systems.

Yang Changfeng, the general designer of Beidou Satellite Navigation System: If you say the system of foreigners to provide time and space benchmark information, there is no exotic high-rise building is based on others. For example, the finance you want to take the US GPS, it is not to provide this data in the time system, and your entire financial system is paralyzed.


In the early morning of October 31, 2000, the first navigation positioning satellite “Beidou Navigation Test Satellite” was launched by Xichang Satellite Launch Center in Xichang Satellite Launch.

It is the first difficult gateway to build your own satellite navigation system to navigate the equipment necessary – atomic clock. The core of navigation is time measurement, but to achieve precision time measurement, only atomic bell can do it. Yang Changfeng, the general designer of the Beidou Satellite Navigation System, said that the atomic clock is the “heart” of the navigation satellite.

Yang Changfeng, the general designer of Beidou Satellite Navigation System: Core key technology must break through itself and cannot be subject to people. Our “Beidou Man” said such a sentence. “There is a bullet in the six or seventeen, and our ‘He Hibaire’ must have our own atomic clock.”

There are only a few countries in the world to develop produce satellite navigation systems independently. Since the beginning of the construction of the Beidou No.1 system, China Beidou is based on the development strategy of “three steps”. By June 23, 2020, the last global network satellite in Beidou No.3 is deployed. In the past 20 years, China has been 4 Beidou Test Satellite, 55 Beidou No. 2, and No. 3 network satellite were sent to space to complete the global network.

Yang Changfeng, the general designer of Beidou Satellite Navigation System: In the future, a service system in my country’s comprehensive navigation positioning, which may also be the development goal of our country, benefit mankind, and serve the world.

According to the subsequent construction plan, in 2035, my country will build a comprehensive timing-tight positioning system with North Danjun as the core, further enhance time and space information service capabilities. Today, the Beidou System has been ranked among the world’s four major navigation systems, and in more than half of the world and regional promotion, the “China Program” that contributes global satellite navigation for the world.
