Russia’s Gps Satellite Replacement Is Antiquated And Outnumbered
Russia’s homegrown global navigation satellite system, Glonass, was created as a rival to the US-run Global Positioning System (GPS) in the 1980s1. However, Glonass is currently facing several challenges. It is outdated, less accurate than GPS, and has a limited number of satellites. These limitations have hindered Russia’s ability to use smart weapons effectively. The Russian government has recognized the need for an upgrade and has launched a network upgrade project to improve Glonass.
