Chinese BeiDou BDS to transfer satellite tech. to Iran

TEHRAN, Oct. 18 (MNA) – Under an MoU signed Between Iran’s IEI and Chinese BeiDou Navigation Satellite System (BDS), China will transfer its BDS technology to Iran.

Under the memorandum, China will establish BeiDou ground stations in Iran, and Iran Electronics Industries (IEI, AKA Sa Iran) will found a center for space data collection.

Navigation satellite systems have many features, and the possibility of using BeiDou BDS services under the management of the IEI will be a good opportunity for the country.

IEI is considered as the largest electronic conglomerate in Iran and has contributed to the construction of Iran’s satellites such as the country’s first domestically made satellites Omid, Fajr and Toloo. The compnay is now in charge of developing Iran’s navigation satellite systems.

Until now, the US as a country possessing the GPS technology, had prohibited Iran’s access to high-precision services, but with the transfer of Beidou BDS technology from China, the county can now enjoy such services and further develop its navigation technology. The BeidDou BDS, contrary to GPS, covers all blind spots across the country.

IEI is planning to hold a seminar on introducing Beidou BDS features on 27 October, 2015. Those interested in participating in the event can visit the organization’s site at iranbeidou.ir to fill in required forms.
