Shandong University contributes to Beidou system

China's Beidou Navigation Satellite System has started providing full-scale global services. Since construction began on the first and second BDS systems, Shandong University has been organizing scientific research teams to develop key technologies for the systems.

The university's Beidou space information technology research teams, led by top experts such as Xing jianping and Wang Yong, have made great contributions to the systems through the development of GNSS receiving radio chips, short message transceiver chips, navigation space modeling, satellite orbit optimization, combined network enhancement and intelligent industrial application.

In recent years, the research team of Shandong University has completed nearly 30 national and provincial key projects related to Beidou's satellite positioning system.

The team owns more than 80 core intellectual property rights, including more than 50 authorized invention patents, and has participated in the formulation of more than 10 national and industrial standards. It has also published more than 150 related academic papers.

Furthermore, the university has joined hands with other institutes to cultivate talents for the Beidou-based navigation system.

This year, the university has introduced a new major on Beidou New Spatio-temporal Technology and Application, the first of its kind in China.

According to the Global Navigation Satellite System and Location-Based Services Association of China, Beidou has been used in dozens of business and public sector fields in China, including transportation, electric power transmission, fisheries, mining and agriculture. Tens of millions of Beidou-based terminal devices have been sold and are currently in use.
