Building its own Navigation Satellite System by 2034, Korean will start ground testing the KPS in 2021.
The System will comprise seven navigation satellites with three of them geostationary above the Korean Peninsula.
Since Korea is currently relying on the US GPS system, which has suffered repeated local area jamming emanating from North Korea, they aim to have regional and independent positioning and navigation signals to prevent nationwide chaos.
