The ship-borne navigational satellite system receiver project developed by the National Supervision and Inspection Center for Satellite Navigation and Positioning Products (Shanghai) received recognition from the China Classification Society (CCS) recently. 

Since then, the National Supervision and Inspection Center for Satellite Navigation and Positioning Products (Shanghai), an affiliate of the Shanghai Institute of Measurement and Testing Technology (SIMT), has become the first institution in China approved by the CCS for its capacity to inspect and test the performance, environment, and the electromagnetic compatibility of ship-borne navigational Beidou satellite (BDS) systems receiving set products. 

This will facilitate mutual cooperation between the two sides and speed up China’s steps to develop the ship-borne satellite navigation sector, especially the Beidou system.

The National Supervision and Inspection Center for Satellite Navigation and Positioning Products (Shanghai) was founded as an agency for quality supervision and inspection with approval from the State Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection, and Quarantine. It consists of three research branches focused on studies in electrical and electronic, basic performance, and mechanical manufacturing divisions. The center is well-developed with various advanced facilities to examine GPS products, time frequency standards, antenna performance, GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) products, wireless and cable detection, and so on.
