    But if the distance GPS travel is longer.. if they are lets say at twice the altitude of GLonass.. then their resolution will be lower and the transmission will have a delay in few seconds that can dramatically change the accuracy of their readings ,specially with things that move..  And this is the reason. (i have read somewhere ,forgot where)..

    No, not twice at all
    Altitude of GPS satellites is  20,200 km .
    GONASS  19,100 km. (1000 km is nothing for the speed of light )

    Than american antiship cruise missiles are limited to subsonic speed.. because they cannot actualize fast enough the missile positioning with the terrain data. Like Glonass can

    Cruise missiles, being aerodynamic vehicles, do not need the rapid response cycle time that ballistic missiles must have to keep the vehicle under control and on an appropriate track.

    Russia has produced new cruise missiles with new speeds , US still depend on old versions , but they announced to produce modern ones.

    This was told by RT when Russia released the world highest most detailed resolution images ever of earth. More detailed than any US image ever released.  

    And NASA creates the most detailed night image of Earth ever seen , The new sensor, the day-night band of the Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS), is sensitive enough to detect the nocturnal glow produced by Earth’s atmosphere and the light from a single ship in the sea,” NASA said .



    No offense, but if you read it was jammed by the US then the article was written by an idiot.

    They said they want to jam specific area not all GPS over Afghanistan

    NASA said.. but the US gov is not Russia . Whenever Russia claim something on the technology side usually
    is not Bullshit.


    look by yourself.. even thought this is not related to navigation satellites ,it just show you that Russia have the
    technology to surpass NASA.  



    There's been a long history of NASA-provided "Blue Marble" images of Earth, but now we're getting a different perspective thanks to photos taken by the Elektro-L No.1 Russian weather satellite. Unlike NASA's pictures, this satellite produces 121-megapixel images that capture the Earth in one shot instead of a collection of pictures from multiple flybys stitched together. The result is the highest-resolution single picture of Earth yet. The image certainly looks different than what we're used to seeing, and that's because the sensor aboard the weather satellite combines data from three visible and one infrared wavelengths of light, a method that turns vegetation into the rust color that dominates the shot.

    An educator named James Drake obtained over 350 full-resolution photos from the NTs OMZ (Russian Research Center for Earth Operative Monitoring), and used them to make several videos showcasing a day in the life of Earth. The satellite takes a full image of Earth from its stationary point over 35,000 kilometers above the Indian Ocean every 30 minutes, providing the material for the video below. The images have a resolution of one kilometer per pixel, and the one you see above was taken on May 14, 2011. Be sure to check a zoomable version of the image here to see the detail for yourself and be reminded of just how tiny we really are.

    Here is NASA best earth photo..



    http://i.telegraph.co.uk/multimedia/archive/01588/earth-huge_1588522a.jpg

    and here is Russia best earth photo.. see the earth on full screen ,click the controls on the right on the website.
    and be amazed how detailed are the Russian images of earth.

    http://gigapan.com/gigapans/103187

    WHich ones is more detailed is obvious to the naked eye.. The Russia images of earth from space are night and day difference and eclipse anything released by NASA . And this should be a major embarrassment for USA who are always pretending to be the most advanced nation on planet and that Russia produce nothing but gas. pirat

    here is a compressed video in motion..reduce to 1megapixel.. (not the original 121 megapixel  quality of the original images but you get an idea of the details and also see it in motion.





    Cruise missiles, being aerodynamic vehicles, do not need the rapid response cycle time that ballistic missiles must have to keep the vehicle under control and on an appropriate track.

    Russia has produced new cruise missiles with new speeds , US still depend on old versions , but they announced to produce modern ones.


    But we are not talking about the future.. what they might do or not.. we are speaking about what they have now..
    Cruise missiles do need rapid response time.. specially when they fly very fast.. For USA might not be a big deal ,since their missiles are 5x time slower subsonic speed.. but for Russia.. their missiles have been for decades supersonic speed.. Mach 3.0+ and now they testing Hypersonic ones with mach 7.0 speeds.. for fast traveling you really need very fast response satellite guidance. Because just one second delay could be the difference between a low flying cruise missile to crash into a mountain or avoid it .. . pirat

    About the Satellites altitude.. i though the differences where much bigger but still 1,100km difference and the newer equipment electronics in GLonass ,will make the difference in stronger signal than the GPS ones.. This is mentioned in the report that Glonass have better penetration on buildings.. so all makes sense. Don't think it have to do with a windown open or not.. but with the stronger signal than GPS.

    Than american antiship cruise missiles are limited to subsonic speed.. because they cannot actualize fast enough the missile positioning with the terrain data. Like Glonass can

    American anti ship missiles are subsonic because they have never invested money in developing faster missiles and never felt they needed faster missiles.... if they need to defeat some third world country with a navy they can just launch lots of missiles...the same way the overwhelm land based SAM defences...

    the civilian signal of Navstar is limited so supersonic navigation is not possible with the civilian free to air signal... which is why GLONASS was always critical to the Russian military.

    They said they want to jam specific area not all GPS over Afghanistan

    They don't need to jam anything... they control the signal.

    They can turn off areas or shift positions 300m to the left at will. I rather doubt the Taleban are using GPS anyway.... perhaps in their new stealth fighters or guided bombs?

    Most Afghans probably couldn't read a map and wouldn't know map coordinates if you tattooed them on their childrens backsides.

    they know how to get from one place to another however.... but they don't use Navstar signals for that or likely anything else. Certainly for non locals they might use Navstar... but not the military signal... they will be using the civilian signal... which the US would not jam... it would just turn off or shift 100km in one direction.

    When foreign countries stop selling chips cleared to work in the harsh environment of space it limits your options but ultimately you plan to build from domestic chips.

    Right now it is more important that it works than it is mm accurate.

    Later on it will only get more accurate and will be a useful asset for Russia.

    I have a question: as far as i know radio waves carry curent so trought a radio antenna a satellite can be powered by radio waves from space or emitted from earth. This could lead to less weight on satellites. Also could power up small satellites

    No.

    But then much easier when you pass a copper wire through a magnetic field it generates a current... tests have already been performed where very fine conducting cable is lowered from an object in orbit and as it sweeps around the earth through the earths magnetic field it generated quite a lot of current.

    The cable needs to be several kms long which makes it difficult as it needs to be very thin but also very strong.

    they generally make them out of carbon nanotubes to make them very light and very strong... they are subject to damage however and have to be very long.

    Russia negotiating placing GLONASS stations in China, Cuba, Nicaragua, Vietnam

    ST. PETERSBURG, April 23. /TASS/. Russia is negotiating possible placement of land-based infrastructure for its global navigation system GLONASS with China, Cuba, Nicaragua and Vietnam, deputy head of the Federal Space Agency (Roscosmos) Mikhail Khailov said on Thursday.

    "We have already established four land-based GLONASS signal adjustment stations abroad - one in Brazil and three at year-round wintering stations in the Antarctic," he said. "We are in talks with four countries, namely China, Cuba, Nicaragua and Vietnam." In his words, about 20 such facilities abroad are needed to better accuracy. Twenty more such facilities are located in Russia.

    Khailov said the technological period for placing and commissioning GLONASS infrastructure facilities outside Russia was two to three years. "However this is the subject for negotiations and the issue of actual terms is open until the negotiations are over," he said, adding that the only thing that could be said for sure was that it was decided to add two more facilities in the Antarctic.

    Russia’s GLONASS is a global navigation satellite system similar to US’ GPS used for real-time positioning and providing speed data for surface, sea and airborne objects. Russia has been developing GLONASS since 1976 on instructions from the Defence Ministry. The first GLONASS satellite was launched into orbit in 1982. In 1993, the initial system of 12 satellites was formally declared operational and in December 1995, the constellation was finally brought to its optimal status of 24 operational satellites, enabling full global coverage.

    The system currently comprises 28 satellites, including 24 operational spacecraft, three spares, and one platform in a flight testing phase. The network’s positioning accuracy is 3.5 metres and by 2020 it is to be improved to 60 centimetres.

    Russia, China Agree on Joint Exploitation of Glonass Navigation Systems

    Russia and China agree to exploit the Chinese BeiDou system with Russia’s Glonass.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) –The heads of Russia's Federal Space Agency and China's Satellite Navigation Office signed on Friday a joint statement on the joint exploitation of the Chinese BeiDou system with Russia's Glonass navigation system.

    The document was signed by Igor Komarov and Wang Li in Moscow as Russian President Vladimir Putin and Chinese leader Xi Jinping witnessed the signing.

    The joint statement follows the cooperation agreement in the field of satellite navigation that was signed by the two countries in February.

    Last year, China's aerospace officials said that the country's global navigation system will be fully operational by 2020.

    China plans to almost double the number of its satellites, orbiting the Earth, to bring the total number to 35 within five years as Beijing looks to become the third country, after the United States and Russia, to operate a global navigation system.

    Russia's Glonass project was launched in 1993 to rival the US Global Positioning System (GPS).

    As of now, the Glonass network comprises 28 satellites, 24 of which are fully operational, to provide real-time positioning and speed data for objects around the globe.

    GLONASS to Go on Stream in 2015 - Media

    Russia’s GLONASS satellite navigation system will be fully operational before the end of this year, the Russian Space Systems head said in an interview, published Thursday.

    "The technical snags and hitches have all been removed now, network schedules all signed and we’ll have concrete results coming in shortly, already before this year is out,” RSS director Andrei Tyulin said when asked about the delays with the creation of a GLONASS ground-based system control center.

    “Making the system operational is part of the customer’s job… We will finish what we were assigned to as planned,” Tyulin was quoted as saying by the Moscow-based Izvestiya newspaper.

    GLONASS or "GLObal NAvigation Satellite System," is a space-based satellite navigation system operated by the Russian Aerospace Defense Forces.

    It provides an alternative to the US Global Positioning System (GPS) and is the second alternative navigational system in operation with global coverage and of comparable precision.

    By 2010, GLONASS achieved 100% coverage of Russia’s territory and in October 2011, full orbital coverage with 24 satellites was emplaced.

    The GLONASS satellites' designs have undergone several upgrades, with the latest version being GLONASS-K.
