As a space infrastructure of national significance, the BDS-3 provides all-time, all-weather and high-accuracy positioning, navigation and timing services to global users.” Said Dr. Lin. The chief designers of BDS-3, Dr. Shaoqian Li and Dr. Xiaoyue Li shared their technological breakthroughs and the technical difficulties they have overcame in the whole process.
Hundreds of unsung heroes in the construction of BDS-3 cultivated the BeiDou spirit in the new era. They have carried forward the spirit of “the Long March, Two Bombs One Satellite” and lead us to forge ahead.
