Demand for GLONASS equipment in the commercial segment will grow by 2-2.5 times

On Monday, with the cosmodrome "Plesetsk" successfully launched and placed into the target orbit navigation satellite "Glonass-M". After the commissioning of the satellite will complete the formation of the GLONASS satellite constellation, designed for 24 apparatus operating in the normal mode.
As the deputy head of "Roskosmos" Anatoly Shilov, Russian satellite system is fully staffed for the first time after a 15-year hiatus. The grouping of 24 satellites will receive GLONASS signals without restrictions not only in Russia, but all over the world. And increase the accuracy of the coordinates. 2-3 years ago determination error was 30-50 meters. With the introduction into service of new satellites had fallen to 5-6 meters. After a few years, Russian scientists hope to reach the accuracy of 1 meter. High-precision positioning will be in demand in professional fields such as construction of roads, bridges and buildings, mapping and surveying, safety.
"Formation of a full constellation opens a new era in the development of GLONASS. If before the domestic system was perceived as a technology demanded only in Russia, but now it can be a serious challenge to American analogue, not yielding to the accuracy of positioning and coverage area, "- says the expert NGO RIC-Systems. — Improving consumer characteristics will increase the attractiveness of GLONASS is not only a professional, but also to the mass market. In the commercial segment in the near future the demand for equipment that receives signals of the Russian system, will increase by 2-2.5 times. "
