The Chinese government has detailed the development of its homegrown BeiDou Navigation Satellite System (BDS). In a white paper, China explains its three-step strategy for developing the BDS. The first step was focused on providing services to domestic users; the second step was to expand services to the Asia-Pacific region, which was achieved by the end of 2012. Meanwhile the third step, expected to be completed around 2020, targets the deployment of 35 interlinked satellites to service global users.
