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.
