Commercial Use for Glonass System

by diane 2010-02-15 02:03

February 15, 2010

Commercial rails for the Glonass Navigation System were proposed by Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin who mentioned that the system should spread throughout the country’s regions.

Glonass - the Global Navigation Satellite System - is the Russian equivalent of the U.S. Global Positioning System, or GPS, and is designed for both military and civilian use. Both systems allow users to determine their positions to within a few meters.

"Our system will actually be global and cover the entire globe," Putin said during a meeting with Deputy Prime Minister Sergei Ivanov earlier today.

"However, it should be commercialized so as to make it more effective," he added.

According to Putin, the Glonass system is highly competitive and has a distinct advantage over its European counterparts.

"As far as I know, they only have two satellites in orbit now, while we have a whole grouping that can provide navigation services covering the entire territory of the Russian Federation," he said, adding that another six satellites would be orbited later this year.

He also stressed that local authorities should take it onto themselves to introduce the system across the regions to be used in trains, aircraft, water and public transportation, taking the republic of Bashkortostan as an example where the introduction of the system has significantly improved fuel economy in the public transportation services.

Russia currently has a total of 22 Glonass satellites in orbit, but only 16 of them are operational. The system requires 18 operational satellites for continuous navigation services covering the entire territory of Russia and at least 24 satellites to provide navigation services worldwide.

The Glonass navigation satellite system is expected to start operating worldwide by the end of 2010.
