Russia Offers India Joint GLONASS Development | Defense | RIA Novosti

Russia has offered India joint participation in development of its GLONASS satellite navigation system on an equal basis, Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said on Tuesday.
"We have offered our Indian counterparts not only use of the Glonass system but also participation in upgrading it. We practically see it as a joint effort. I think our Indian counterparts will be interested in it," said Rogozin, who has special responsilibity for Russia's military-industrial complex.
The Global Navigation Satellite System, which was officially launched in 1993, is a Russian counterpart to the U.S. Global Positioning System (GPS). It fixes the location and speed of surface, sea and air objects to within an accuracy of one meter.
Russia and India have been cooperating on use of GLONASS for more than four years, but Russia has not previously offered equal joint participation in upgrading the system.

I think we should participate in it as we dont have plans for global navigation system, and for our regional needs we already have IRNSS in plans.

Great offer from our brothers up North. No doubt that the offer also involves some financial gains for them, but all in all it does not seem bad to start with.
However should there be a cooperation, there must be concrete protocols on what should happen if in the future our two countries fall out.
