MOSCOW, February 10 (Itar-Tass) —— Prime Minster Vladimir Putin said on Thursday the Russian global positioning GLONASS system should not be inferior to US GPS.

“By all parameters GLONASS shall be not worse but even better than GPS,” he told the government.

Despite launch problems faced by the Russian space industry last year “we succeeded to deploy the orbital group of GLONASS,” Putin said. Currently there are 31 GLONASS satellites in orbit and 24 are operating.

GLONASS is the second global system in the world after GPS, Putin sad.

In the past five years its positioning accuracy grew from 35 to 2.8 meters while GPS accuracy is 1.8 meters.
