With its tenth satellite in orbit, Beidou, the Chinese equivalent to GPS, is "operational." China plans six more satellite launches before the end of 2012 and a total of 35 by 2020. 

If the translation is accurate, Chinese officials are unclear on how the systems works. 

Beidou now offered location, timing and navigation data to China and surrounding areas announced the project's spokesman Ran Cheng.

The interface control document is available in English (pdf).

When was the last time a company doing GIS got funded (not an LBS one or a social media one)? Beehive Industries of Lincoln, NE just announced an investment from Nebraska Global.

"Beehive is an excellent fit for us as the teams can really leverage veteran technology with deep domain expertise to create an entire asset management platform that makes competitive options look generally bloated at best; in price, licensing terms, and lagging technology," Patrick Smith..., principal and COO of Nebraska Global, said in a release.

I covered Beehive just last month when I explored Kearney, NE's GIS solution.
