The 28-nanometer chips that enable mobile devices to receive signals from Beidou satellite system are in mass production and core components of the navigation system are “100% made in China,” said the national satellite navigation authority on Monday.

Ran Chengqi, director general of the China Satellite Navigation Office, said at a press conference that mass production of more advanced, high-precision 22-nanometer chips will soon kick off, showing that China has mastered “world-class” technologies for satellite navigation chips.

China will create a complete industrial chain of chips, boards, and satellite services for Beidou, Ran said. In the past decade, the total output value of China’s satellite navigation and location services industry has grown at an average annual rate of more than 20% and is expected to exceed 400 billion yuan in 2020, according to Ran.

Now the Beidou system serves more than 100 million users in about 120 countries, supporting services such as smart port and land mapping, Ran said.

China started building the Beidou navigation system in 1994 and launched its Asia Pacific coverage in 2012. In June, the 55th and final satellite was put into orbit, completing the navigation network that is seen as China’s answer to the U.S.-owned Global Positioning System (GPS).
