China Seeks ‘Independence’ From GPS With Own Satellite Navigation Service

China Seeks ‘Independence’ From GPS With Own Satellite Navigation Service | ApHuG with Master Yodaman | Scoop.it
A Chinese satellite navigation system began providing services yesterday as the nation seeks to end its “dependence” on the U.S.’s Global Positioning System, or GPS, the official Xinhua News Agency reported.

 

China's satellite geolocation system, Beidou, has become operational. It is believed to be accurate to within 10 meters, which beats the U.S. military's GPS (accurate within 20 m). Is this an economic move for China or a way become militarily independent from the U.S.?  How will this change geospatial intelligence?

New Scientist TV: Why GPS is just a clock in space

New Scientist TV: Why GPS is just a clock in space | ApHuG with Master Yodaman | Scoop.it

"Thanks to GPS, planes, cars and cellphones can quickly be guided to any destination. The system uses a network of satellites, but how do they relay the correct coordinates from space?  GPS is just a big clock in space. By communicating with four time-keeping satellites, a GPS device can determine it's exact position."
