Russian Space Systems CEO Andrey Tyulin has said joint surveying of the sites for the distribution of works will begin in December.
He explained that the RSS and Chinese partners would cooperate in the mutual placement of positioning ground stations in Russia and China for GLONASS and China’s Beidou.
In Russia, 19 ground stations provide consumers with a navigation signal with an accuracy of one meter. Three stations are located in the Antarctic, and one in Brazil. Two are to be created in Kazakhstan and one in Belarus, the RSS said.
The orbital station GLONASS consists of 28 satellites, including the twenty four Glonass-M satellites that are in active service. One is under the supervision of the general designer, two remain in the reserve and one Glonass-K is in the test phase.
The launch of a second space satellite of the new generation Glonass-K is scheduled for December. The GLONASS system is being created on orders from the Defence Ministry.
China’s navigation system Beidou is to be deployed by 2017, and by 2020 it is expected to provide global coverage. For this China is to build up the constellation of satellites to 35. Since the end of 2012 the Chinese system accessed the foreign markets: Beidou began to be introduced in Thailand with the construction of positioning stations. In 2014-2015 China plans to expand cooperation with Myanmar and Malaysia and to expand the market in Africa and the Middle East. Beidou is available to most Chinese army units starting from the regimental level upwards.
