Russia, China develop navigation system draft for SCO, BRICS

Russia kicked GPS out of its country back in June of 2014, while BeiDou was first introduced in late 2012. Meanwhile, the aging U.S. GPS is on the verge of collapse.

A new world without the U.S. continues to form.

 

Russian and Chinese experts have developed a draft project to create a global international navigation system based on China’s BeiDou and Russia’s GLONASS satellite navigation for the member states of BRICS group and the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, Russian Space Systems company said in a statement on Tuesday.

On Monday, Russia’s GLONASS Union said Russia and China would also finalize a deal this month to establish two joint ventures to develop, manufacture and sell new satellite navigation devices that would receive signals from three major navigation systems, BeiDou, GLONASS and US Global Positioning System (GPS).

“The project was approved at the second meeting of the Chinese-Russian committee for important projects in the sphere of strategic cooperation on the satellite navigation,” the statement reads.
