The third-generation satellites now being launched by China feature higher-performance rubidium and hydrogen atomic clocks, inter-satellite links, improved spatial signal accuracy, better compatibility with other countries' navigation satellites, and offer search-and-rescue services. The third-generation Beidou spacecraft can provide positioning accuracies between 2.5 and 5 meters (8.2 to 16.4 feet).
