    Are you saying Minnie Chan lie? because here what she said
    China Shipbuilding Industry Corporation (CSIC) said underwater precision positioning tests conducted by its No 716 Research and Development Institute in waters off Lianyungang in Jiangsu province, proved that it had overcome a number of core technical problems with the BeiDou Navigation Satellite System.

    CSIC, China’s biggest state-owned naval shipbuilder, said the tests showed that the BeiDou system could not only provide accurate and consistent positioning data to underwater vessels, but could also send tracking and positioning information from underwater devices to shore-based and surface stations.

    Yes. Beidou works on E band, which is a microwave frequency and only penetrates few millimeters of water, much less than periscope depths. As great as the scientists are, they are not going to defy physics. If the 716th did say or make something, the underwater segment will have nothing to do with Beidou. I suspect it is related to an acoustics based system tested in 2018 but there is no public source related to the 716th on that project either.

    How Minnie Chan mixed those up is not a question I can answer.

    Via Icloo finally a 10 ton ASW heli that can carry plenty sonobuoy, onboard sonar computer And heavy lift for medium torp, better range and loiter time
    A Z20 mock up with folded rotor blades has been sighted on a type 055 destroyer under out-fitting, which indicate a naval variant of Z20 is ready to be stationed on type 055, type 052DG and type 071 LPD.

    Interesting remark on Huitong's Chinese Military Aviation, described it as Z20F?, a ASW version that first flew in late 2018.
