Russia has offered India joint development of its GLONASS Satellite Navigation System. Both countries have already cooperated on the system for four years. Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said that he has offered his Indian counterpart to not only use the GLONASS System, but also to upgrade it.

The Global Navigation Satellite System was officially launched in 1933 and is a Russian equal to the American Global Positioning System. The satellite system can fix the location and speed of surface, sea and air based objects to a precision of one meter.
