China's BeiDou public service commitment won the International Civil Aviation Organization
According to the official website of the Civil Aviation Administration of China, Salvatore Sciacchitano, chairman of the Council of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), recently wrote to the Civil Aviation Administration of China, clearly accepting the service commitment of the Beidou Satellite Navigation System (hereinafter referred to as the "Beidou System") made by the Director General of the Civil Aviation Administration of China Feng Zhenglin on behalf of the Chinese government. This marks that China and ICAO have reached a formal consensus on the global civil aviation application of Beidou system, and laid a solid foundation for the subsequent Beidou system standard to pass the final review and formally incorporate it into ICAO standards, and then realize the global civil aviation application of Beidou system.
In order to deeply implement the spirit of General Secretary Xi Jinping's important instructions and instructions, the Civil Aviation Administration of China, together with the China Satellite Navigation System Management Office, Beihang University and other industry-university-research units, formed a special working team to fully promote the Beidou system to serve the global civil aviation application. Promoting the inclusion of Beidou system into ICAO standards is an important prerequisite. At the end of 2020, 189 performance indicators of Beidou System passed the verification of ICAO expert group, and all core technical work was completed; On July 2020, 7, the Beidou-31 global satellite navigation system was officially put into operation, which has fully demonstrated the advanced and reliable nature of the Beidou system, as well as China's determination and ability to provide high-standard global satellite navigation services for the world.
According to ICAO working procedures, Beidou system standards need to pass the review of the Navigation Committee and the final review of the Council before they can be officially released and implemented. As the main country in the construction and operation of the BeiDou system, China provides the BeiDou system public service commitment to ensure that it meets the global civil aviation application needs, which is an important link to win the extensive support of the international civil aviation industry. After approval, the Civil Aviation Administration of China officially sent a letter of commitment in January this year. While resolutely safeguarding national sovereign interests, the letter of commitment demonstrates China's open, inclusive and win-win attitude. In February, the Civil Aviation Authority received a formal reply from the President of the ICAO Council, clearly accepting the contents contained in China's letter of commitment. It is worth mentioning that the Beidou system and the Galileo system entered the ICAO review stage at the same time, and China sent a letter of commitment before the EU and was accepted, creating a good international environment for the global civil aviation application of the Beidou system.
"Urban development cannot be separated from three-dimensional space and time. Temporal and spatial information is the best reference and best record of urban development." Li Weisen, deputy director of the State Bureau of Surveying and Mapping, popularized his vision of a smart city from a professional perspective: Smart cities rely on modern information technologies such as the Internet of Things and cloud computing, supported by spatiotemporal information, to solidify human information into the construction, management, operation, service, and development of cities, forming intelligent operations that do not or rarely rely on humans
According to the relevant person in charge, in the field of centimeter level high-precision GNSS navigation and positioning technology, the Nebulas II (UC4C0) chip has reached international leading levels in technology, various indicators, and other aspects. The receiver board developed based on this chip can reduce its size by more than half.
According to media reports, US Trade Representative Michael Froman stated that China and the United States have made breakthroughs in negotiations to eliminate tariffs on information technology products. He expects these breakthroughs to lay the foundation for the Information Technology Agreement (ITA) negotiations to be held in Geneva at the end of the year. Froman said that China and the United States have reached an agreement on ITA expansion on the evening of the 10th, which will implement zero tariffs on various technology products, including GPS equipment. The other technology products mainly include medical equipment, video game consoles, semiconductors, and other new products.
At present, China has successfully launched 4 BeiDou navigation test satellites and 16 BeiDou navigation satellites. The second step of the "Three Step" strategy for the construction of BeiDou navigation engineering - the BeiDou satellite navigation regional network has been successfully achieved. The accuracy and level of the BeiDou navigation system in the Asia Pacific region is no less than that of the GPS global positioning system. He stated that China should accelerate the formulation and improvement of relevant policies for the navigation industry, and guide its orderly development.
According to the official website of the Civil Aviation Administration of China, Salvatore Shakitano, President of the Council of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), recently replied to the Civil Aviation Administration (CAAC), explicitly accepting the commitment made by Feng Zhenglin, Director of CAAC, on behalf of the Chinese government, to make the BeiDou ("Beidou System" for short) public service to ICAO. This marks the official consensus between China and ICAO on the Beidou system serving global civil aviation applications, laying a solid foundation for the subsequent review and formal inclusion of Beidou system standards in ICAO standards, and ultimately achieving the Beidou system serving global civil aviation applications.
Unmanned agricultural machinery used for farming in the fields, fishing boats used for ocean fishing, navigation software in mobile phones... In an increasing number of navigation and positioning scenarios, there is a similar Chinese core hidden - the "Beidou". According to data released by the China Satellite Navigation and Positioning Association, as of the end of 2020, the sales of domestically produced Beidou compatible chips and modules had exceeded 150 million pieces, with quarterly shipments exceeding 10 million pieces. The total social ownership of terminal products with Beidou positioning function exceeded 1 billion units, and the domestic output value of the Beidou system industry chain reached 403.3 billion yuan.
