The concept for a Chinese Regional Navigation System was first introduced in 1983. In 1989, the system using two geostationary DFH-2/2A communication satellites (code name: Twinsat) passed in-orbit validation. The first dedicated satellite, BeiDou-1A was launched on 30 October 2000, followed by BeiDou-1B on 20 December 2000. The third satellite, BeiDou-1C was put into orbit on 25 May 2003 as a backup.
To better serve our clients’ diverse and changing business needs, we offer flexible satellite capacity across the entire satellite fleet, for full-time, part-time and occasional usage.
