New 13-Meter Radio Telescope in Leningrad Region to Magnify GLONASS Accuracy

 Experts of the Applied Astronomy Institute, RAS, have mounted a new 13-meter radio telescope at the Svetloye Observatory in the Leningrad Region.


"The radio telescope, its construction financed with 600 million rubles from the federal budget, will enhance the accuracy of the GLONASS global navigation system," - the Institute's scientific director, Alexander Ipatov, said.


The 13-meter radio telescope will be the third telescope of this class in the QUASAR system, the basic system of fundamental coordinate and temporary support in Russia.


It includes five telescopes in three observatories - in Svetloye (Leningrad Region), in Zelenchukskaya Village (Karachay-Cherkessia) and in the Badara stow (Buryatia). All these observatories are connected with the control center in St. Petersburg.
