The SafePilot CAT I Beidou is a stand-alone high accuracy GPS receiver with the capability of GPS/Beidou and available SBAS systems such as EGNOS, WAAS, MSAS, and GAGAN.
CAT I Beidou is an add-on option to a CAT ROT for operations that demand more accurate positioning than the ship’s own positioning. CAT I Beidou enables the users to freely switch GNSS types between the US GPS and the Chinese Beidou.
