Russia has started a complete update of GLONASS

Last week, the first satellite of a new generation, GLONASS-K, was put into orbit and put into operation. To date, the domestic navigation system is represented by a constellation of 25 satellites, including the one launched on April 28. 23 devices are used for their intended purpose, two more are under maintenance.

The average error of the GLONASS system for civil signals is 1,32 meters. In the future, due to the renewal of the satellite constellation, it is planned to increase this figure to 30 centimeters.

At the same time, Russia has already begun to modernize the domestic navigation system. This fall, the latest GLONASS-K2 satellite will go into orbit. An important difference between this satellite and the aforementioned predecessor is that it was created entirely from Russian components.

As for the technical characteristics of the new device, it boasts greater accuracy, as well as the ability to use the Cospas Sarsat international search and rescue system.

By 2030, it is planned to launch 18 such satellites into orbit. However, this is not the end of the evolution of our navigation system.

The next stage in the development of GLONASS will be the creation of its high-orbit segment. The system will include 6 devices on inclined geosynchronous orbits in three planes, which will improve the accuracy of navigation in residential buildings and areas that are difficult in terms of navigation. The first device from this group is planned to be launched in 2028.

    Well, yes ... Let's build the largest plant for the production of the largest microcircuits, and we will live ... There is power. Will-is. Willpower - no ... K140UD1B to help you (us) ... And there is more evil (because it is not enough).

      Although an electronics engineer in the past, he did not understand the reference.
      In the 80s was a very popular op-amp

        This is in terms of the fact that now we would have to repeat that level ... I don’t know what the military is flying on, probably China. Shame on the country...

    Already, as it were, k2 has been in development for a long time. And what is in k2, what is in k, not all ERI are domestic.

    Are not the names and full names of those who failed us microelectronics known and what ... !!!!
    After all, this task was set a few years ago, not small funds were allocated for it .. and in general, the double is empty !!!!
    At least one of them was asked in full, they put him in prison ... but it would be better if they shot him, so that it would be disrespectful for others to lie and do nothing !!!!
    Chubais, who always boasted that he had money ... chickens do not peck ..!!?? the bearer of state secrets, the head of Rosnano with a multi-billion dollar loss, was calmly allowed to go abroad, and if only he.....!!! Well, where to go next, shame and betrayal, you can’t say otherwise !!!
    You understand that many of us are engaged in a very profitable business - they cut into the impudent budget, promising, outlining plans, the construction of new industries, factories, etc. ... and they ... are not fulfilled.!!!
    And this is to the very top, there are a lot of words and fanfare, but there is no sense .. !!!
    When I read that 6 vice-premiers, to one degree or another, who also have the highest clearances to state secrets of Russia, left (ran away) from us, to be honest, I was taken aback !!!! If we have an elite of this level, pro-Western, which runs there ... then the question is simple !!?? And what do we expect from such a level of staff!!??
    We will have nothing if we do not stop this wholesale betrayal of Russian interests by officials of this rank from top to bottom - they only earn money from us, profit from it and the efficiency of our economy does not bother them.

    why first? They are already in orbit for more than a third of the entire composition. But they are unfortunately made for the most part from imported components. Maybe K2 will be different. But hard to believe. We can make plans, projects, chat, promise this as much as we like. But building your own production of a modern electronic base is not easy. This is where a lot of hard work needs to be done. Especially officials and the authorities they represent. And we have big problems with that. They don't want to work. They have no motivation, no responsibility, no competence. Here, "master" state money, conclude corrupt contracts, fill up the case, find the reasons that prevented them, they can do it. And without our electronics in the conditions of sanctions, we will not be able to do anything worthwhile.
