Launch vehicle (LV) Proton-M with three Glonass satellites in space in the estimated time of 22:32 was launched from Baikonur. Once the data spacecraft will be put into orbit, Russia will have its global navigation system. In February of 2008. after testing the satellite navigation signal coverage over Russia will be 95% above the world – 86%. The first glonass satellite was launched on October 12, 1982 glonass orbital constellation designed for rapid global high-precision navigation and time support an unlimited number of users of land, sea, air and space-based. The glonass system uses the Ministry of Defence and civilian purposes, the navigation signal is received free of charge. The program provides glonass deployment constellation of 24 full-time spacecraft in circular orbits in three orbital planes of eight units each. glonass should be compatible to work with similar European system Galileo. Currently, such a detailed and operating the navigation system (GPS) have only the .
