Product Description

GLONASS is a radio-based satellite navigation system operated for the Russian government by the Russian Space Forces. It is an alternative and complement to the United States' Global Positioning System (GPS), the Chinese Compass navigation system, and the planned Galileo positioning system of the European Union (EU) and Indian Regional Navigational Satellite System of India.

Development on the GLONASS began in the Soviet Union in 1976. Beginning on 12 October 1982, numerous rocket launches added satellites to the system until the constellation was completed in 1995. Following completion, the system fell into disrepair with the collapse of the Russian economy. In the early 2000s, under Vladimir Putin's presidency, the restoration of the system was made a top government priority and funding was substantially increased. GLONASS is currently the most expensive program of the Russian Federal Space Agency, consuming a third of its budget in 2010.

By 2010, GLONASS had achieved 100% coverage of Russia's territory. As of February 2011, the constellation consists of 22 operational satellites, short of the 24 satellites needed to provide continuous global coverage, and is expected to be completed during 2011. The GLONASS satellites designs have undergone several upgrades, with the latest version being GLONASS-K.

This book is your ultimate resource for GLONASS. Here you will find the most up-to-date information, analysis, background and everything you need to know.
