Moscow and Havana plan to connect Cuba to the Glonass navigation
satellite system, the Russian ambassador to Cuba said on Wednesday.
Glonass – the Global Navigation Satellite System – is the Russian
equivalent of the U.S. Global Positioning System, or GPS, and is
designed for both military and civilian use. Both systems enable users
to determine their positions to within a few meters.
Russia and Cuba are currently developing cooperation in the sphere of
advanced technology, Mikhail Kamynin noted.
"Our plans include a detailed work on connecting Cuba to the Glonass
system," the ambassador said.
