Another major GLONASS disruption
Just two weeks after all satellites of Russia’s GLONASS satellite navigation system broadcast inaccurate data for more than 10 hours the system suffered another major disruption. As reported by the Moscow Times eight GLONASS satellites malfunctioned for half-hour period beginning shortly after 1 a.m. Moscow time on April 15, 2014. Another satellite – GLONASS #730 – stopped working completely on April 14, 2014 at 10:20 p.m. According to Nikolai Testoyedov – general director at JSC Reshetnev Information Satellite Systems, which manufactures the satellites – the glitches occurred while work was being carried out to update the system.
