MOSCOW, April 11. /TASS/. The leadership of the Roscosmos State Corporation has established the department of navigation space systems to coordinate the resolution of all tasks connected with the development and use of the GLONASS global navigation satellite system, the Izvestia daily reported citing the Roscosmos press service.
"In Russia, the functions to create, introduce and use GLONASS are fancifully distributed among various organizations and departments," the newspaper said.
"The formation of the GLONASS department in Roscosmos is an attempt to coordinate the actions of various departments," it said.
The new department is led by Andrey Volkov.
The GLONASS orbital group currently has 23 satellites working in line with their designated use. By the end of 2016, the group may be replenished with two or three new Glonass-M satellites.
