The most recent achievements of the BeiDou Navigation Satellite System (BDS) will be displayed and discussed during the tenth China Satellite Navigation Conference that opened in Beijing Wednesday.

The BDS is China's self-developed navigation system and is compatible with other navigation systems.

According to Ran Chengqi, director of the China Satellite Navigation Office, the construction of the BDS-3 primary system had been completed and has started to provide global service.

In the future, it will offer new services such as satellite-based augmentation system and international search and rescue. The navigation signals will be improved globally, Ran said.

An exhibition during the conference will showcase BDS's chips, modules, antennas and terminals.

The three-day conference features seminars, academic exchanges and exhibitions, inviting experts from both home and abroad to exchange ideas on key technologies, innovation applications as well as industry development.

China Satellite Navigation Conference is one of three major international satellite navigation conferences. The annual conference has been held in cities including Beijing, Shanghai, and Guangzhou since 2010.
