Russia: Russia will set up GLONASS ground support stations in 34 countries across the globe, Russian Space Systems General Director and General Designer Yury Urlichich announced.
Urlichich stated that the Russian Space Systems has all the necessary resources to install such stations in nearly 20 countries, which include Australia. “We are absolutely ready technically. Negotiations with ten to fifteen countries are nearing completion,” he observed.
Three GLONASS stations are already operating in Antarctica and the fourth station is planned, Urlichich added.
