    A global high-precision system for obtaining the real-time navigation data has passed state tests and is ready to be put into operation as part of the GLONASS navigation system, Russia's Roscosmos state space corporation said in a statement Wednesday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The new high precision system is designed for civilian purposes and will allow to determine real-time geographical location with precision of up to 1 foot. It allows monitoring during geodetic, cartographic and other scientific works demanding high precision information from navigation satellite systems.

    "State tests of the functional augmentation to GLONASS system have been completed. The first stage of the system … is ready to be put into operation by the Russian scientific-production enterprise Precision Instrument-Making (SPP)," Roscosmos said.

    The system was developed within the frameworks of the federal program GLONASS Sustainment, Development and Use for 2012-2020.
