GLONASS will be able to determine the coordinates with an accuracy of 1 meter

The measures envisaged by the GLONASS Federal Target Program for 2021-2030 to improve the domestic navigation system will be able to increase its accuracy several times. About this agency RIA News Director of VNIIFTRI S. Donchenko announced the day before.

In particular, it is planned to create the so-called "seamless navigation", which will combine all the available types of navigation. Such a system will be able to provide the consumer with the most accurate coordinates, regardless of current conditions. For example, outside the satellite visibility range (inside buildings or in tunnels), alternative methods for calculating the location of an object will be automatically activated.

In addition, the accuracy of GLONASS will be enhanced through integration with navigation systems built on the basis of magnetic and gravitational anomalies, as well as thanks to new satellites, which are planned to be put into orbit in the current decade. Moreover, earlier сообщалосьThat 15 devices will replenish the group by the end of 2022.

GLONASS will be able to determine the coordinates with an accuracy of 1 meter

At the moment, the domestic navigation system can determine the coordinates of the object with an accuracy of nine meters. However, according to Donchenko, the aforementioned events will be able to increase this indicator to one meter.

    It seems to have already been swung at navigating through gravitational anomalies, and now again - foresight geosatellites?

      Anomalies are unstable in performance and mobile, like a magnetic pole, and an artificial satellite is always an artificial satellite, a piece of iron with a constant signal and a relatively stable trajectory tracked. The meaning is the same as in ancient times by stars, only a method of triangulation by radio signal, and not visually. According to the principle: the simpler - the more reliable.

    When they voice a 10-year plan, I don’t have faith. This is still not verified. And is something more modest impossible, at least 3-4 years? To ask to know with whom!

      5 years or two is not the point. Moreover, the satellites are launched at once, these same non-micro-garbage disposable for low orbits, the caliber is larger.

      Soon (most likely), life-long posts will appear, so it's strange that you ask this question.

    These promises were already. But they write on VO that it’s a lot of problems with the launch.

    There are no imported parts, no satellites, no rockets ....

    On the Zvezda channel, a film was shown about the creation of our nuclear weapons.

    November 1944, XNUMX
    Stalin gathered EVERYONE and asked: "How long does it take for us to create a nuclear bomb?"
    - 15-20 years old !!
    Stalin appoints Beria as curator, and Kurchatov in charge. And he says that in 5 years the bomb should be !!!

    During these 5 years, 5 thousand enterprises were created along with deposits, and not only uranium. And in 1949 on August 29 they successfully tested a nuclear bomb.
    I’m thinking that if we only begin to erect the monuments of Beria, then our construction will increase 10 times!
