Russia is installing a station for tracking the signals of the Russian global navigation satellite system GLONASS in Bangalore, said Vladimir Pasynkov, general designer of the Precision Instrumentation Systems Research and Production Corporation to RIA Novosti.
“We have been instructed to prepare the deployment of a GLONASS free measuring station in the Indian city of Bangalore. It is also possible to install such a station in Indonesia,” he said at the MAKS-2021 International Aviation and Space Salon.
According to him, placing these stations will significantly improve the characteristics of the Russian high-precision navigation system.
“Agreements have already been reached with the Indian side, everything is determined by the terms of legal registration of documents,” Pasynkov added.
At present, the overseas segment includes five Russian GLONASS free measuring stations located in Brazil , South Africa and Cuba .
As per previous reports, the ISRO will be allowed to set up NavIC (previously IRNSS) ground station in Novosibirsk city Russia in a reciprocal move.
In 2016, an MOU about joint placement was signed between ROSCOSMOS and ISRO on these lines.
