The "Transneft" company and the Navigational Information Systems company have begun to create a system of transport monitoring with the help of GLONAS.
The Russian GLONAS and the American GPS are now being used in Russia in different transport systems. All public government transport in Russia is to be fitted with GLONAS starting from this year.
The "Transneft" company wants to establish more than 20 thousand terminals- from the Far East to the Baltic Sea within a few years for transport monitoring.
The large project entails the creation of information-analytical systems using navigational technology, says Roman Osipov, Director at the NIC's Department of Information Management. Tape.
"A special device will be installed on all transport, which will allow to pinpoint its location as well as to control its work and to measure the amount of fuel in the tank. All the information will go to the control center to be analyzed by the controller, who will then create a report", said Roman Osipov.
The project which will be completed within three years, envisages the creation of infrastructures and the equipping of all "Transneft" related transport.
The introduction of the GLONAS-based equipment will have a double effect. For one transport control will be easier and that will in turn help to make use of the routes more productively, says Andrei Platonov, Director of the Project Management. Tape.
"For another, the unsanctioned use of technology will be curtailed as a result of stricter control, and that is a huge economic benefit", said Andrei Platonov.
The use of GLONAS will lead to a more effective organization of the work of the vast pool of vehicles and will streamline the company's logistics.
"Transneft" handles more than 90 per cent of the transporting of all the oil production in Russia, and an orderly logistics will enable the company to become even more effective.
