BEIJING - The quick positioning platform of China's Beidou navigation and positioning system is serving more than 200 countries and regions around the globe, China North Industries Group Corporation Limited (NORINCO) announced Thursday.

The location service platform of Qianxun Spatial Intelligence Inc, a company using Beidou services that was co-founded by NORINCO and Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba, has more than 90 million customers, the corporation said at its yearly work meeting.

Qianxun's centimeter-level service is expected to cover the whole of the Chinese mainland in 2018, when the high-accuracy positioning of Beidou will become a public service shared by all walks of life.

NORINCO has also won the bidding for the construction project of a base station network for foreign navigation satellites, marking the first step in its bid to push applied Beidou system overseas.

According to Yin Jiaxu, chairman of NORINCO, the corporation has already set up a network system and statistics processing center for Beidou's ground-based augmentation system, which consists of 1,355 base stations.

This has filled the blanks in Beidou's national high-accuracy service network, and enabled Beidou with high-accuracy positioning, he said.

NORINCO is looking to facilitate the establishment of a state-level high-accuracy service platform for Beidou, and improve innovation and application in Beidou and cutting-edge fields, Yin continued.
