Russia and China create a single navigation space

The Russian Global Navigation Satellite System (GLONASS) and the Chinese Beidou may begin to work together in a few years. Negotiations on the introduction of common standards for the Russian GLONASS and the Chinese Beidou have already begun.

According to experts, in this case the accuracy of GLONASS will increase. In the future, it is planned to create a single navigation space from the Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean.

According to the head of the direction of international projects of the non-commercial partnership "GLONASS" Alexander Bondarenko, the main idea of ​​the project is to form a single navigation space from the Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean.

“We are considering several pilot projects concerning the provision of navigation and information services to vehicle users involved in cross-border business,” explained Bondarenko. - These are Russian and Chinese commercial vehicles that carry out transportation and regularly cross the borders of the two countries. Together with our Chinese partners, we study the market and attract companies working in this direction. "

Scientific director of the Institute for Space Policy, Ivan Moiseev, believes that combining the capabilities of GLONASS and Beidou will improve the consumer characteristics of navigation equipment.

“The more satellites the device sees, the more accurately it gives the coordinates, which is especially important for the conditions of megalopolises,” said Moiseev. “At the same time, the Russian equipment is still focused mainly on the use of GLONASS together with the American GPS”.

NP "GLONASS" states that the Chinese partners are showing interest in the ERA-GLONASS emergency response system deployed in Russia. The system that automates the transmission of the SOS signal from the crashed vehicle to the rescue service should be put into operation on the territory of the Customs Union in 2015. Around the same time, a similar eCall system will start operating in the EU countries, which will have a connection with ERA-GLONASS.

The Chinese authorities have not yet made a decision to introduce in their own country a system like ERA-GLONASS or eCall, but, according to Russian specialists, they plan to do this in the near future.

“The most important direction in which extensive interaction is planned is the harmonization of standards, primarily at the level of navigation and information systems in transport,” emphasized Evgeniy Belyanko, Vice President of NP GLONASS. “One of the tasks is the introduction of uniform standards along the entire Silk Road, that is, in Europe, Russia, Kazakhstan and China.”
