Nicaragua approves Russian 'alternative GPS' satellite system

Nicaragua has approved the implementation of an agreement with Russia that authorizes the establishment of satellite ground stations in the Central American country.

The agreement, approved by Nicaragua’s legislature on Tuesday, would allow Moscow to place the satellite land bases, which are part of an operating system similar to the Global Positioning System (GPS), for peaceful purposes such as mitigating the effects of natural disasters.

The system, known as GLONASS (Global Navigation Satellite System), is managed by Russia’s Federal Space Agency, and works as an alternative to the GPS, which is created and maintained by the US government.
