Russia and China are preparing the "killer" of the American GPS

As is known, there are four global positioning satellite systems in the world. These are American GPS, Russian GLONASS, Chinese BeiDou and European Galileo. The largest satellite constellation is the American system. Next come Russia, China and the EU.

To more accurately determine the position, modern devices, whether civilian or military, use several systems simultaneously. Given the difficult situation in international relations, our country, like China, at some point may be disconnected from GPS, which will significantly affect the accuracy of navigation.

From this possible perspective, the governments of the two countries began to discuss the signing of an agreement on cooperation in the field of global positioning systems. A month later, the first meeting of relevant groups will take place, which will discuss the issue of combining GLONASS and BeiDou.

    In fact, Europe and America are opposed to Asia ... and the question of global positioning is still a big question, which satellite total grouping will be more and more accurate.

      the big question is which satellite aggregation will be larger and more accurate.

      Our group does not yet inspire optimism - there are no backup satellites in any orbit, strictly 24 satellites fly.

    Russia and China are preparing the "killer" of the American GPS Well, it all fits together. fellow Putin V.V. declared, "... why do we need such a world if Russia does not exist in it? ...". Now the Anglo-Saxons began to threaten Russia by disconnecting from Swift. Logically, we can conclude: - why the hell then do you need this Swift if it also does not have Russia? Here it’s not only a question of combining GLONASS and BeiDou, how much it will make Western inadequacies understand that ... due to strong magnetic storms and the release of solar energy ... for some reason, the microcircuit “burned out” (or the circuit board, I don’t know request ) for the entire American and European GPS and Galileo groups. Of course the answer will be ours, but "absolutely disproportionate to the level of involvement of American interests" yes

    We can do without satellite navigation. They are not. Well, and who is in flight? Disconnecting from the swift? Time is lost, it’s no longer scary since there is an analogue. Yes, they will lose more. Someone will not travel to the Canaries? 90% of the average man is now not pocketed.

      Who are we?
      I do not know a single person in the merchant fleet who can navigate without a satellite.

    All equipment will fly off orbit, the Strategic Missile Forces will have training goals ...
