Russia: Western sanctions on Russia for long have been restricting the country’s purchase of radiation-resistant components base for its space industry. But now, the Russian government has announced that it has found out a way to switch its GLONASS global navigation system to a domestically-produced electronic component base. Russia plans to achieve this aim within the next two years. GLONASS is a priority for Russian defense systems who don’t want surprises in the event of disconnection from other navigation systems.
