MOSCOW, April 26. /TASS/. Russia will cooperate with China in satellite surveillance and communications constellations as is now the case with navigational systems, Head of Russia’s State Space Corporation Roscosmos Dmitry Rogozin said on Tuesday.
"Cooperation between Glonass and Beidou [China’s satellite navigational system] can quite spread to communications and surveillance clusters," the Roscosmos chief said at the Sfera international navigational forum.
Roscosmos and China’s Navigation Satellite System Commission earlier inked a deal on cooperation in Glonass and Beidou mutually complementing global navigation satellite systems.
Roscosmos Deputy CEO for the Exercise of State Powers Sergey Dubik announced in July 2019 that Russia and China could mutually host three measuring navigational stations for the Russian Glonass and Chinese Beidou systems on their territory.
