(Original title: Indian version of GPS to catch up with the Beidou? Japanese media said it has reached the development limit: behind China 7 years)

Reference Information Network November 18 reported Japanese media said that China has successfully launched the first satellites used by the new generation of satellite positioning system “Beidou 3”. Positioning accuracy (error) will be increased to 2 to 3 times the original, up to 2.5 meters. Compass satellite positioning system will be global coverage by 2020. China is also stepping up its pursuit of the United States not only in the economic and military fields but also in the development of the universe. India, which follows China’s pace, is also steadily pushing forward similar projects.
According to a report by Japan’s Nihon Keizai Shimbun on Nov. 17, “Our positioning system will be commercialized as early as the second half of next year.” Mizra, director of India’s Spatial Applications Center, was so confident in an interview a few days ago Said.
It is reported that although Indian-developed satellite positioning system “NavIC” covers only the surrounding areas of India, it has received much attention as a self-positioning satellite that replaces the United States Global Positioning System (GPS). Mishra confidently said that “the use of mobile phones in 2019 should be able to receive location information.”
The Space Applications Center is one of the divisions of the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) responsible for space development in India and is responsible for the development of satellites such as radar.
It is reported that China’s Beidou positioning system was open to the public in 2011. If, as Mislis said, India will commercialize NavIC by 2018, it can be said that “India will be seven years behind China.” Economists think India’s economic growth “lags behind China by 10 years.” In the development of the universe, the gap between China and India will be narrowed.
Mishra said that NavIC’s positioning accuracy is the same as that of China’s Beidou system, which is “also 2.5 meters maximum.” Earlier, many people thought that “the accuracy is between 10 and 20 meters.” However, Mishra explained, “Like China, it will use 2 receiving chips that send signals in different frequency bands to control the error between 2.5 and 5.0 meters “.
One reason why India decided to develop its own positioning satellite is the painful experience of being unable to rely on GPS. In 1999, GPS was requested from the United States for location information, but was denied it and realized the necessity of owning a satellite positioning system. The Indian government approved the development in 2006 and launched No. 1 satellite in 2013. At present, seven satellites are located on the geostationary orbit and the eighth is expected to be launched in early 2018.
“We are proud to have developed several systems that can show the world and we have also developed NavIC.” India’s Prime Minister Modi encouraged nationals during the Independence Day speech on August 15th. There are many other views that this part of the speech on the development of the universe also contains the enthusiasm not wanting to lose to China.
Reportedly, in fact, India’s perception of the limits of satellite positioning systems can be felt in an interview with Mithra.
