ERA GLONASS: 2 years before the start

To ERA GLONASS was launched in 2014, requires reliable operation of at least two types of equipment: the satellites in orbit and the terminal consumers. This writes the topical application to the newspaper "Kommersant» Business Guide (Geographic Information Systems) in an article on the prospects of the Russian system of emergency response in case of accidents.

Currently, GLONASS orbital group reached staffing levels and ensures stable reception of navigation signals on a global scale. Thus, the first condition for the implementation of the program ERA GLONASS almost done. Consumer equipment, based on which services will be provided

Russian Space Agency experts spoke about the future of GLONASS

Russia — a country that has its own full-featured navigation system that, in today's world is an important competitive advantage and factor in ensuring national security. What future for the domestic GLONASS system, representatives of Roscosmos told in an interview to the newspaper "Moskovsky Komsomolets".

Over recent years, the GLONASS system is constantly developed and improved: positioning accuracy has increased by 10 times the orbital group was brought to full strength, were brought into orbit a new generation of satellites. Increased demand for satellite navigation services, especially in the area of control and management of vehicles. GLONASS technology also is

Feint GLONASS

Everyone is laughing at "the first Russian iPhone" — MTS 945 smartphone (aka ZTE 945). This case shows a lack of strategic thinking in the majority of Internet plankton, and the presence thereof in our government. So now we can speak with confidence — the government has committed a brilliant strategic feint ears, to promote GLONASS to the consumer market. And the trick was completely successful.

I already wrote that support for GLONASS is already present in a variety of devices manufacturers. Just confirmed it and the company Qualcomm.

The government recognized that an obstacle to the promotion

With 2011 Year ends with the federal program for the development of GLONASS. Should be taken a new, dedicated the next stage of building the satellite system. There is reason to evaluate the distance traveled.

Exactly four years ago, I went completely decadent article "In the hope of GLONASS, GPS and customizable" (See "Nezavisimaya Gazeta", 26.12.07). While in orbit were only 18 GLONASS satellites, of which only 13 worked as

The third station GLONASS mounted in Tomsk

The works are a part of the establishment of satellite geodetic network and information security in urban Tomsk. The new station GLONASS / GPS will measure plots of land with centimeter accuracy, which will assist in the resolution of land disputes.

The first set of GLONASS established in 2008 on the building of the city administration. The second station is located in the northern area of technical innovation zones. A third appeared in July in the airport area. 

Chairman of the Committee of geo-information for Sergei Sidorenko said that under the project in the city
