For the latest developments on the basis of the Russian navigation system GLONASS and new opportunities that they give to the Russians, the general director and general designer of JSC "Russian Space Systems" Yuri Matevich Urlichich. The joint special project "Voice of Russia" and the studio, "Roskosmos" (the Russian Federal Space Agency).
Urlichich … Now there is a greater demand for receivers GLONASS-GPS. And it’s all civil use in our country and other countries that use the two systems. Because consumers are, of course, do not want to depend on a single system, if you can take just two of the system and take advantage of the dual-system receiver. This is a quick entry into the relationship, the definition of navigation signals from the two systems. The orientation will be more reliable, fast, accurate.
Kulakovskaya: That is, the market will have new designs?
Urlichich: They are different in size and characteristics receivers designed for different markets. Strictly speaking, it depends on what is meant by the receiver. If by this we mean only the board itself, which receives, processes the signal, the minimum size for today — about two to three centimeters.
Flat (three millimeters thick) single board produced by "Geostar". "Geos-1M" — this is the best receiver in the home today, which is in the world. We often say that the Russian microelectronics lags behind Western models. I can say that the best two-system telematics receiver for civilian use today is produced in the Russian Federation.
