3 Glonass Satellites To Launch In September

Posted: August 3, 2010 in Glonass, Proton-M, Russia

A Glonass Three-Pack

Russia plans to make their positioning, navigation, and timing (PNT) satellite system, Glonass–the Global Navigation Satellite System–operational.  How? With a needed three-pack launch on a Proton-M planning to a 2 September launch date.

This launch will provide Glonass with enough operational satellites for continuous navigation services covering the Russian territory.

The EU’s Galileo PNT system seems to be trailing the international field…by a large margin.
