The Chinese army on Thursday issued regulations covering how satellite navigation systems are applied in combat.

The new rule  will take effect on June 1.

The regulation stipulates procedures for sourcing satellite navigation systems as well as their safety management and how they should be used, it said.

China's homegrown BeiDou Navigation Satellite System (BDS) began providing positioning, navigation, timing and short message services to civilian users in China and surrounding areas in the Asia-Pacific region in December 2012.
