It is now clear, the US GPS has crumbled as China’s BeiDou Navigation Satellite System is gaining ground by the day, with its proponents claiming that it has surpassed the American GPS in terms of accuracy and reliability. But is it really better than the GPS, which has been the global standard for satellite navigation for decades?
EU has Galileo, China has Beidou, India IRNSS, and Russia has GLONASS. Russia and China have signed contracts on mutual deployment of navigation stations
Russia’s GLONASS stations will be located in Changchun, Urumqi and Shanghai, and China’s Beidou system stations in Obninsk, Irkutsk and Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky.

At the Russia-Africa forum, a drone countermeasures system “Serp”(Sickle) was presented, which is capable of simultaneously fight a whole swarm of drones within a radius of 5 kilometres. Using the Chinese Beidou Satellite system.
The system is designed to combat small drones and works without human intervention, protecting both stationary and mobile objects. The developers claim that with the use of several of these systems, it is possible to establish a reliable defence of an extended infrastructure.
The system can disrupt the channel used to control the drone, disable its navigation equipment, disrupt the UAV’s orientation in space, and prevent the operator from completing the mission. “Serp-VS neutralises GPS, GLONASS, Beidou signals (in L1, L2, L5 bands) and disrupts drone control via Wi-Fi.
The Roselektronika holding company said that there is already a demand for the “Serp” abroad, and contracts may be signed in the near future.
The first China-Africa BeiDou Navigation Satellite System (BDS) Cooperation Forum was organised by the China Satellite Navigation Office, China National Space Administration, Secretariat of the Chinese Follow-up Committee of the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation, Ministry of Digital Economy and Telecommunications of Senegal, and Education, Science, Technology and Innovation Department of the African Union Commission.
