The United States, as part of the sanctions, is considering the possibility of disconnecting Russia from the GPS navigation system, there is no need to worry, since we have GLONASS, Roscosmos CEO Dmitry Rogozin said on Saturday.
“Did you know that today, as part of the sanctions, the United States is considering the possibility of disconnecting the Russian Federation from GPS. Do you know about it? You don’t know. And I can tell you that such an issue is being considered,” Rogozin said during a visit to the Progress Rocket and Space Center (RCC).
He clarified that it is not worth “straining” about this, since each smartphone is also connected to the Russian GLONASS system, which in this case will continue to work.
Yesterday, the European Aviation Safety Agency (European Union Aviation Safety Agency) warned of periodic failures in the operation of global Navigation satellite systems (GNSS). Interruptions in GNSS operation can lead to a deterioration of navigation and surveillance due to jamming and/or possible spoofing near the territory of Ukraine.
