infrastructure for satellite navigation in Armenia. This provision is contained
in the letter of intent signed in Yerevan during the second International Forum
of Eurasian Partnership. Pursuant to the agreement, the parties intend to deploy
an infrastructure in Armenia to ensure the functioning of equipment for calling
the emergency services similar to the Russian ERA-GLONASS system.
The specialists will also develop and improve promising navigation and
information technologies based on deployable infrastructure. According to the
agreement, there will be built authorized centres for the sale, installation and
testing of equipment and qualified staff training.

harmonised navigation and information systems based on the GLONASS satellite
navigation technology’, commented General Director of JSC GLONASS Andrey
General Director of NIIMA PROGRESS Vasily Shpak noted that as of today there is
more than 1 million vehicles equipped with emergency calling units registered in
the ERA-GLONASS system. Possessing a high technology capacity, ERA-GLONASS is an
eco-environment allowing to create and implement new products and services.
