    Russia today launched next generation of glonass satellites to make the system almost 95 percent operational , after the launch failure in december last this was a successful launch from soyuz 2- 1b system to make the count to 23 , india will be using dual signals and receivers for navigation comprising of the GPS and Glonass , the dual receivers are now being jointly developed.

    The Dual mode will make india use the technology to better precision and reliability.

    Glonass is not very accurate around the tropics, it'll be plenty useful if India ever plans to bomb Mongolia or something.

    Military grade signals from GLONASS have no issues in the tropics, if there are issues in the first place. Funny that we are clubbing Civilian GPS with military GLONASS. :p

    I don't think the military equipment will have devices which will take signals from GPS and GLONASS, at best they will take from IRNSS and GLONASS, for civilian equipments yes they will take the civilian signals from GPS and GLONASS

    india seriously needs to expand the irnss programme to cover the entire globe and not just the indian ocean region atleast for the sake of our defence forces.
