China and Thailand to share satellite system

beidou-1Chinese and Thai officials have announced that China’s homegrown Beidou satellite navigation system, one of the world’s four leading satellite navigation systems, will be extended to cover Thailand in early 2014, marking a first move into ASEAN countries, according to a report by People’s Daily Overseas edition on October 31.

It is understood that construction of Thailand’s disaster prediction system will be based on Beidou satellite remote sensing technology. It will be included in the Thai government’s economic development and planning and will serve primarily as the country’s agricultural disaster warning system and in other fields such as transportation, electricity and environmental management.

A satellite demonstration station will be built at an industrial park in central Thailand next month and full-scale construction will begin in early 2014, according to the report.

It is understood that the Beidou system’s signal strength and stability in the Asia-Pacific region, and particularly in ASEAN countries, are better than in other regions. The system has been applied in many industries including oil, electricity, transportation, maritime transport and precision agriculture. It has also developed some more mature application models and solutions.

This is the first time that the Beidou system has been used in a foreign country. China will take advantage of the cooperation with Thailand and the ASEAN region to further expand its overseas markets. It is expected that the Beidou system will have the ability to provide global coverage by 2015.
