    Russia to develop Glonass orbital navigation system with six new satellites

    This will improve the accuracy, accessibility and integrity of the system, Roscosmos believes

    MOSCOW, November 21. /TASS/. Russia will continue developing its Glonass orbital navigation system with the launch of six new satellites, First Deputy CEO of State Space Corporation Roscosmos forRo Orbital Grouping Development and Priority Projects Yuri Urlichich said on Wednesday.

    "We will have new satellites in other orbits that will help us solve the tasks of improving accessibility on the territory of Russia. We are planning to launch six space vehicles that will qualitatively improve the Glonass system. This will improve the accuracy, accessibility and integrity of the system," Urlichich said at the 8th Era-Glonass international congress.

    ‘What will this yield for us as consumers? Intellectual transport systems will become even greater reality and humans’ work in them will become even less and unpiloted systems will emerge. Of course, there will be those willing to drive automobiles themselves but gradually they will find themselves on special tracks and special roads," the Roscosmos official said.

    "As of today, producers predict a total reduction in the production of automobiles. However, the human population is growing and there will be more rides but they will be unpiloted as unpiloted transport, both freight vehicles and cars, is awaiting us," he noted.

    In 2011, Russia launched its first Glonass-K satellite, which has been undergoing flight trials since then, and in 2014 its analogue was launched, Urlichich said.

    "In 2019, we are already waiting for the Glonass-K2, which will enable us to solve many tasks with a better quality. As of today, the Glonass orbital satellite grouping comprises 24 vehicles in their standard operation and it will continue developing," the Roscosmos first deputy head said.

    Today, only two navigation systems have been fully deployed in the world: the Russian Glonass and the US GPS. The Chinese Beidou system and the European Galileo will be deployed but they are lagging behind, he said.

    "The European system is more than 15 years late compared to its initial plans while we have been able both to create and maintain our system and we are creating products on its basis, such as the Era-Glonass - the emergency response to traffic accidents. When we were starting the Era-Glonass program, we were behind Europeans. But we have managed to make it first and this is the first national system of such a scope," the Roscosmos official said.

    New generation satellites to join GLONASS system early 2020

    NOVOSIBIRSK, April 9. /TASS/. New generation satellites will join the navigation system GLONASS at the end of 2019 or the beginning of 2020, the deputy CEO, deputy general designer for development and innovations of the JSC M.F. Reshetnev Information Satellite Systems Yuri Vilkov has said.
    "We are in the phase of developing a new generation of navigation satellites. They will replace the current ones and considerably improve the system’s parameters, including accuracy. The satellites boast better energy and mass characteristics. The first ones in the new series are to be launched at the end of this year or the beginning of next year," Vilkov said.

    He explained that a specific date could not be disclosed right away, because it depended on the life cycle of the existing technologies. The GLONASS system, he added, is rather stable and most of the satellites already launched stay operational much longer than their declared life cycle, so there is no need for their prompt replacement.

    GLONASS is Russia’s a global navigation satellite system. Guaranteed global coverage requires 24 operational satellites located in middle circular orbit at 19,100 kilometers - eight satellites in each of the three orbital planes. The orbital group is controlled from the information and analysis center of the Central Research Institute of Machine Building TsNIIMash.

    New satellites to improve accuracy of Russia’s Glonass orbital grouping to onemeter


    Such accuracy will better determine the location of cars, to be helpful in analyzing a traffic accident and restoring the circumstances, Glonass Company Chief Designer Mikhail Korablyov said

    ST. PETERSBURG, May 31. /TASS/. New Glonass-K2 satellites will improve the accuracy of Russia’s satellite navigation system from 3-5 meters to 1 meter, Chief Designer of Glonass Company (the operator of the Era-Glonass traffic accident emergency response system) Mikhail Korablyov told TASS on the sidelines of the Transport Security forum on Friday.

    Russia is currently drafting a new federal target program for developing the Glonass orbital navigation system in 2021-2030. The program is due to be drafted by 2020.

    "The tasks [stipulated in the federal target program] envisage further developing and fully deploying the grouping on the basis of Glonass-K2 satellites and increasing accuracy. The navigation accuracy is about 3-5 meters today and we are set to improve it to less than a meter by the end [of the program’s operation]," he noted.

    Such accuracy will better determine the location of cars, which will be helpful in analyzing a traffic accident and restoring the picture of the accident’s circumstances, the chief designer said.

    "There are also tasks linked with the country’s defense, there are special precision weapons, the requirements for which already make up less than a meter," he added.

    As was reported earlier, Russia’s strategy of developing the Glonass satellite orbital grouping through 2033 stipulates that from 2030 the Glonass system will fully consist of 24 new Glonass-K2 space vehicles that will be manufactured using only domestic components.

    The Glonass-K2 is due to become a follow-up of Glonass-K satellites (two such satellites are operational in the Glonass orbital grouping). The new satellite will be transmitting nine navigation signals and will weigh about 1,800 kg (twice as much the Glonass-K). Russia plans to launch the first Glonass-K2 satellite into orbit in late 2019 - early 2020.

    Russia’s Glonass navigation satellites to switch to domestic components by 2023


    The program of replacing foreign components with domestic items was launched in 2018

    MOSCOW, June 14. /TASS/. Russia’s program of fully replacing foreign components in Glonass navigation satellites is due to be implemented before 2023, Chairman of the Roscosmos State Space Corporation’s Scientific and Technical Council Yuri Koptev told TASS on Friday.

    "A four-year program exists for the Reshetnev Information Satellite Systems Company as the developer of Glonass satellites. The program has been agreed upon with the developers of the components base. Each year, the program defines a specific set of Russian components to replace foreign analogues," Koptev said, adding that the program was designed for a period until 2023.

    The program of replacing foreign components with domestic items was launched in 2018. It stipulates that Glonass satellites will carry no foreign components in the future, he noted.

    Under the strategy of developing the Glonass orbital grouping through 2030, the launch of the last Glonass-M satellite is scheduled for 2020 while the last Glonass-K space vehicle is due to be delivered into orbit in 2023. Roscosmos Chief Dmitry Rogozin said during a lecture at Moscow State University that the first Glonass-K2 satellite was planned to be launched in late 2019 - early 2020.
