Russia launches project to secure GLONASS

Poland: The Russian Ministry of Defense has launched a project aiming to secure GLONASS, the country’s satellite navigation system, against enemy disruptions of signals. The ministry has handed a 350 million ruble (US $11 million) contract to two local entities, the Russian Scientific-Research Institute of Physical-technical and Radiotechnical Measurements (VNIIFTRI) and NAVIS navigation systems. The two contractors will work on increasing the system’s immunity to electronic warfare. Under the plan, VNIIFTRI and NAVIS will set up a facility to test the system’s resistance by mimicking noise that can jam the satellite signal aimed at land- and air-based GLONASS receivers. It aims to teach the system to distinguish noise from signals and bypass it.
