Chinese-made BeiDou satellite system output value hits new record

The output value of China’s BeiDou Navigation Satellite System (BDS) reached a new high of 469 billion yuan ($69 billion) in 2021, up 16.29 percent year on year, according to a white paper recently released.

The white paper, issued by the Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) and Location Based Service (LBS) Association of China, together known as GLAC, attributed the rapid growth to the global service of BDS- 3 system started on July 31, 2020, which further stimulated demand for and attracted more investments in BDS technological applications. It further said that China remained the top source of international satellite navigation patent applications last year, totaling 98,000.

By the end of 2021, over 380,000 sets of BeiDou positioning, timing and short message communication terminals had been installed, and more than 7.9 million vehicles had been equipped with the BDS. Nearly 8,000 sets of BeiDou terminals of various types had been applied in the railway sector and over 100,000 agricultural machines had been equipped with the BeiDou self-driving system to monitor the harvest of staple crops and the operation of tractors around the clock.
