In late 2003 and early 2004 Chinese and European engineers worked together for the first time on satellite navigation demonstrations, using a temporary regional ground network of European Geostationary Navigation Overlay Service (EGNOS) stations. This notably allowed dynamic tests on the Yangtze river, which showed very good availability and accuracy of the EGNOS test bed signals and that satellite navigation could improve safety for waterway navigation in China.
