“Now in scalded cat mode, they will look for a solution.” The head of Roscosmos insists on the mandatory replacement of GPS in aircraft with GLONASS

Dmitry Rogozin spoke on the topic recommendations of the Federal Air Transport Agency to Russian airlines to refuse to use the GPS system during flights due to the fact that its signal can be turned off or jammed. The head of Roscosmos is indignant: according to him, despite the repeated warnings of the state corporation, “Russian airlines continued to lease and purchase foreign aviation equipment, ignoring the requirements for installing GLONASS equipment on it”.

“Now in scalded cat mode they will look for a solution. And it is one thing – to install GLONASS stations at all airports to provide a high-precision navigation signal and install GLONASS receivers on all aircraft operated in our country. And, without fail. These are penny expenses compared to the price of a passenger’s life.”– Dmitry Rogozin wrote in his Telegram channel.

“Let me remind you, by the way, that on January 1, 2017, the ERA-GLONASS system was installed on all cars produced in our country or imported into our country in accordance with the legislation of the Russian Federation. It turns out that this could be installed on tens of millions of cars, and on hundreds of foreign-made aircraft it is forbidden? It’s true what they say, a miser pays twice.“, he added.

According to Dmitry Rogozin, today Roscosmos will send technical proposals to the Ministry of Transport and the Federal Air Transport Agency on replacing GPS with GLONASS subscriber equipment, “which will also be able to receive a navigation signal from the Chinese Beidou Orbital Navigation System”.
