    China's BeiDou navigation satellite system, which reportedly boasts accuracy to the centimeter, and Russia's GLONASS, hailed as the only global rival to GPS, plan to join forces and build a production facility. The news was broken by Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin, who spoke in Harbin, the capital of the northeast Chinese province of Heilongjiang. He added that it is planned that the facility for production of receiver modules and chipsets will be based in Russia. wrote:China's BeiDou navigation satellite system, which reportedly boasts accuracy to the centimeter, and Russia's GLONASS, hailed as the only global rival to GPS, plan to join forces and build a production facility.

    Roscosmos establishes GLONASS development department — newspaper

    The department will coordinate the resolution of all tasks connected with the development and use of the GLONASS global navigation satellite system

    MOSCOW, April 11. /TASS/. The leadership of the Roscosmos State Corporation has established the department of navigation space systems to coordinate the resolution of all tasks connected with the development and use of the GLONASS global navigation satellite system, the Izvestia daily reported citing the Roscosmos press service.

    "In Russia, the functions to create, introduce and use GLONASS are fancifully distributed among various organizations and departments," the newspaper said.

    "The formation of the GLONASS department in Roscosmos is an attempt to coordinate the actions of various departments," it said.

    The new department is led by Andrey Volkov.

    The GLONASS orbital group currently has 23 satellites working in line with their designated use. By the end of 2016, the group may be replenished with two or three new Glonass-M satellites.

    Russia’s Glonass-M satellite delivered into interim orbit

    This is the second launch of a Glonass-M satellite and the third launch of a Soyuz-2 medium-class carrier rocket from the Plesetsk cosmodrome this year

    MOSCOW, May 29. /TASS/. A Fregat booster with a Glonass-M satellite separated from the third stage of a Soyuz-2.1b carrier rocket at the designated time in a normal regime, the press office of the Russian Defense Ministry reported on Sunday.

    The carrier rocket was launched at 11:45 a.m. Moscow time (08:45 GMT) from site No. 43 of the Plesetsk cosmodrome in the Arkhangelsk Region in north Russia by an operational crew of the Russian Aerospace Force’s space troops.

    "It will take several hours for the Fregat booster to bring the Glonass-M satellite into the designated orbit," the press office said.

    This is the second launch of a Glonass-M satellite and the third launch of a Soyuz-2 medium-class carrier rocket from the Plesetsk cosmodrome this year.

    The flight tests of the Soyuz-2 spacecraft began at the spaceport on November 8, 2004. Over the last 12 years, 27 launches of Soyuz-2 carrier rockets in their upgraded 1a, 1b and 1v modifications have been carried out at the Plesetsk space port.

    The launch was initially scheduled for May 21. Nikolai Testoyedov, head of the Reshetnev Information Satellite Systems Company that produces navigation satellites told journalists that the postponement of the launch of Glonass-M satellite No 53 was not related to its condition.

    As Roscosmos State Corporation said earlier, up to eight satellites may join the Glonass system constellation by the end of 2017. Both Soyuz launch vehicles and Proton-M heavy carrier rockets may be used for the launches. A source in the space rocket industry told TASS that the launch of a Proton carrier rocket with three Glonass satellites may take place already before the end of 2016.

    Glonass is Russia's satellite navigation system designed to provide Russia with its own navigation data for military and civilian use, as well as to compete with the US Global Positioning System (GPS) in the commercial market for navigation data.

    Commissioning of GLONASS system may be postponed until early 2017

    The director general of the Information Satellite Systems company however hopes the system will be commissioned in 2016

    KUBINKA (Moscow region), September 6. /TASS/. The commissioning of Russia’s GLONASS navigation system might be postponed until the beginning of 2017, Nikolai Testoyedov, the Director General of the Information Satellite Systems company, has told reporters.

    "We hope that the system will be commissioned by the end of this year. However, the situation is cumbersome, and our influence does not extend to all the procedures, so it could be postponed until the first quarter of 2017," he said.

    The company head noted that the ground control segment has undergone ground tests and is ready to be delivered to its customer. In addition, the orbit group is fully operational. However, the Soyuz rocket and the Fregat upper stage have not been put into operation yet.

    Testoyedov said at the end of July that the system would be fully ready to be commissioned by the end of the year. GLONASS was supposed to be delivered to the customer a few years ago, but the Russian Defense Ministry had a number of points of criticism at that time.

    MOSCOW, April 24. /TASS/. New GLONASS satellites will be transmitting a new encoded signal, the deputy CEO of Russia’s Roscosmos corporation, Mikhail Khailov, told a satellite navigation forum.

    "At the moment the manufacturer keeps seven space satellites GLONASS-M in stock. Six will be transmitting the encoded navigation signal in L3," he said.

    Currently one GLONASS-M satellite and two new generation GLONASS-K satellites transmit the CDMA signal.

    Russia to launch new-generation navigation satellite next year

    The first launch of the Glonass-K2 newest navigation satellite from spaceport is expected in 2018



    MOSCOW, June 5. /TASS/. The first new-generation navigation satellite Glonass-K2 will be launched from the Plesetsk spaceport in north Russia next year, Reshetnev Information Satellite Systems Company, the satellite producer, said on its website on Monday.

    The spacecraft’s new automated control system will be used at the launch and technical compounds of the Plesetsk cosmodrome. The first launch of the Glonass-K2 newest navigation satellite from the spaceport is expected in 2018," the company said in a statement.

    A new automated complex will be developed specifically to exercise control of the satellite’s systems. The equipment will help track the satellite’s condition both at the stage of its preparation for the launch and during the launch of the carrier rocket.

    Third-generation Glonass-K satellites of Russia’s GLONASS global navigation satellite system are distinguished by their high accuracy of determining coordinates. They are designed for ten years of operation as compared to the previous-generation Glonass-M spacecraft with a service life of seven years. The first Glonass-K satellite was launched into orbit in 2011 and the second in 2014. The Glonass-K2 is designed to develop further the Glonass-K series.

    The Glonass-K2 will be transmitting nine navigation signals. It will weigh about 1,800 kilograms or twice as much as the Glonass-K1.
