ISS-Reshetnev at ICG-12 meeting

On December 2-7 ISS-Reshetnev Company as part of the Russian Federation delegation is participating in the 12th Meeting of the International Committee on Global Navigation Satellite Systems (ICG-12) in Kyoto, Japan.

Meetings of the International Committee on GNSS will be divided into four working groups covering various aspects of the development and application of satellite navigation technologies. One of these working groups is coordinated by Sergey Revnivykh, deputy general director of ISS-Reshetnev Company. He co-chairs ICG Working Group S – “Signals, Systems and Services”. Within the framework of this working group meetings its participants will discuss a wide array of issues concerning interoperability and compatibility of satellite navigation systems owned by different countries as well as radio frequency interference problems.

As of today there are four global navigation satellite systems. Two of them – Russia’s GLONASS (based on satellites built by ISS-Reshetnev Company) and the USA’s GPS provide global coverage and are in their full operational capabilities. Another two systems – the European Galileo and China’s BeiDou – are currently under construction. Apart from them there are two regional navigation satellite systems being developed by Japan (QZSS) and India (IRNSS). Joint use of all navigation satellite systems will increase the quality, reliability and availability of navigation services to users all over the world.
