The Russian orbital navigation group GLONASS has again reached its full strength, which provides for sending its signal to any place on the earth, according to the website of the Roskosmos information and analytical centre.
24 GLONASS satellites are currently functioning, while two more are being serviced and are therefore non-operational; still other two satellites are in orbital reserve, while one more satellite is undergoing flight testing.
GLONASS is meant to provide an unlimited number of ground-, sea-, air- and space-based users with navigation services.
