MOSCOW, August 18. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has approved a roadmap for establishing GLONASS public company and developing the ERA-GLONASS road accident emergency response system, the government’s legal information portal reported on Monday.

Russian President Vladimir Putin earlier gave instructions to develop a roadmap for establishing GLONASS public company with a 100% stake as an operator of the ERA-GLONASS state automated information system based on data provided by Russia’s GLONASS satellite group.

The Russian president also gave instructions to envisage a possibility for GLONASS to provide navigational services to both state and commercial customers.

The roadmap, which will be implemented in 2014-2018, is designed to cut federal expenditures on the ERA-GLONASS operation from the current 590 million rubles ($16 million) to zero and achieve the system’s annual gross revenues of 5 billion rubles ($138 million).

ERA-GLONASS aims to shorten the time when rescuers arrives in road traffic accidents: in case of a traffic accident, information on a transport vehicle, including its precise coordinates, will be automatically transferred to a control center of the 112 emergency response system, which will dispatch emergency response teams (specialists of the Emergencies Ministry, traffic police and ambulances) to the scene of the accident.
