Accuracy GLONASS promise to increase in 3 timesIn the nearest one - two years accuracy of work of receivers GLONASS is planned to triple practically. About it at V international forum on satellite navigation in “ Expocentre “ Anatoly Shilov has informed zamglavy Federal space agency (Russian Space Department).
“ For the nearest one - two years it is necessary for us to reach accuracy in one - two metres “ - A.Shilov has told, having added that now given indicator makes 6 m.
As he said, for successful work of system GLONASS presence in an orbit not less than 24 companions is necessary. He has noticed that for necessary 24 - satellite the orbital grouping will be finished in August of this year after the next start of the companion “ GLONASS - M “. Now three space vehicles pass test, and one new device is tested.
“ in July - August we will start one “ GLONASS - M “ In September - October will be three more starts (navigating companions) from Baikonur “ - he has specified. A.Shilov has noticed that before starts it is necessary to carry out all necessary tests and to observe safety measures, considering the failure which has occurred on December, 5th 2010ã.
A.Shilov has informed that for today system GLONASS equips 23 % of aircrafts of the Russian Federation, 87 % sea and river crafts, 80 % of motor transport (it is a question of the state transport).
we Will remind, three companions “ GLONASS - M “ which have been started on December, 5th 2010ã. From the cosmodrome Baikonur, in some hours have fallen in Pacific ocean severo - to the west of Honolulu, without having reached an orbit. In May of this year the Investigatory committee of the Russian Federation named a cause of accident and losses of three companions “ GLONASS - M “ excess of weight of an oxidizer in razgonnyj the block on 1,5 t owing to an error in Open Society documentation “ It is rocket - space corporation “ Energy “ It. With. The Item The queen “ in the formula of calculation of a dose of refuelling of liquid oxygen entered into the maintenance instruction. As a result of loss of companions the damage at a rate of 4,3 mlrd rbl.
