"In 2013, our main task was to ensure the stable operation of the GLONASS system, and this has been achieved. Further development of the system implies a fourfold increase in the precision of navigation equipment," Rogozin said.
The GLONASS network, which began its operation in 1993, provides real-time positioning and speed data for surface, sea and airborne objects.
"Accuracy-wise, GLONASS has come close to GPS…Over the years GLONASS' accuracy has increased from 115 to nine feet. We are always striving toward modernization due to the ever-increasing demands of consumers," Rogozin stated.
