Glonass JSC is the operator of the ERA-GLONASS system, providing data to emergency responders via Russia's Global Navigation Satellite System. It is designed to reduce emergency service arrival times by quickly pin-pointing incident sites. The system calls an emergency service number automatically if the on-board transponder signals an accident.
