Caption: Navigation satellite. Artwork of a Uragan ("Hurri- cane") satellite used in the Global Navigation Satellite System (GLONASS), the Russian equivalent of the American Global Positioning System (GPS). The GLONASS system uses a constellation of 24 mil- itary satellites orbiting in three planes. These orbits are inclined to the equator and last less than 24 hours, ensuring that 3-6 satellites are above the horizon at any time in any place. The GLONASS satellite transmissions can be detected by small ground-based receivers to give an indication of the user's position to within 20 metres.
