u-blox Announces Supports for its BeiDou Navigation Satellite System Modernizations

August 31, 2020 Perry Cohen

u-blox announced its GNSS platforms beginning with the u-blox M8 and further, supports the newly completed BeiDou navigation satellite system modernizations.

Per tests that were ran across China and Europe, the BeiDou system can improve the positioning and accuracy of GNSS receivers, specifically when a number of navigation satellite systems are being tracked concurrently. The system is designed specifically for when signals are partially obstructed.

BeiDou offers a suite of services that include satellite and ground-based augmentation services, precise single-point positioning, precise timing, and global short message services.

GNSS technology leverages all-weather, all-time, tracking, navigation, and timing. The tech is submerging within agriculture, forestry, fishery, power, and energy, making BeiDou an important system.
