Navigation System Refined

The M2M Telematika group of companies is developing navigation software able to receive navigation data not only from satellite systems, but from alternative sources as well, technical director Alexei Kutsenko told a conference on satellite navigation, Interfax reported Sunday.

"In addition to global navigation satellite systems, there are three channels for obtaining navigation data: cellular networks, inertial systems and pulse-phase radio navigation systems, such as Chaika and Loran-C," he said.

"This product exists, but it is not mass product. It's a model that was created by request. However, this trend seemed to us interesting, and we plan to develop it," Kutsenko said.
