SHANGHAI, July 19 /PRNewswire-Asia/ — On June 2, 2010, China successfully
launched the 4th BeiDou navigation satellite into the pre-designated orbit,
symbolizing that China has made another important step forward in building the
BeiDou (COMPASS) Navigation Satellite System. As is known to all, satellite
navigation and positioning systems are the key strategic infrastructure for
information, and have influenced the process of social civilization and
changed people’s ideas about life, time and space. The construction of
satellite-based navigation, positioning and timing systems will be an

information era, China is doing its utmost to construct its own BeiDou
satellite navigation system so as to improve self-owned navigation,
positioning, and timing systems. With the ongoing Expo 2010 Shanghai, China,
