GLONASS Launch Preparations

This is something really cool so I just had to put this link here for you all to see. This link shows the preparation of one of the GLONASS-M satellites that is being prepared for launch. The launch is scheduled for Septermber 25, see my earlier post.

This video has been posted on YouTube by Roscosmos, the Russian Space Agency.

Check it out is is really cool!

Personally I am very much looking forward to the launch at the end this month as it will further improve the GLONASS performance and bring it very close to the GPS performance. In my "high accuracy" work (I deal with millimeters) we can now clearly see the benefit of using GPS and GLONASS compared to using just GPS.

The GNSS future looks bright!
