Russia will deploy up to seven ground stations for Glonass satellite navigation system monitoring and augmentation outside of the national territory in 2014, Glonass/GNSS Forum Association Executive Director Vladimir Klimov said at a conference held on the Security Technologies exhibition sidelines.

"It is planned to deploy about six or seven stations on foreign territories this year," Klimov said as he spoke about the creation of a worldwide Glonass augmentation network. Negotiations on the deployment of these stations are underway with foreign states, he said.

In all, about 50 stations of the kind will be constructed, which will significantly improve the Glonass performance and provide efficient applications for high-precision navigation services and smooth monitoring of systems of coordinates and Earth rotation parameters, he said.

So far, there are four Glonass augmentation stations far from Russia, three in Antarctica and one in Brazil, Klimov said. Forty-six stations operate on Russian territory and up to eight in neighboring countries, he said.
