FORTALEZA, July 16 (RIA Novosti) – Deployment of GLONASS satellite navigation systems to the BRICS states is very promising, the technologies allow to boost yield capacity up to 50 percent, Russian President Vladimir Putin said at the plenary session of the BRICS summit Tuesday.

"The joint implementation of the Russian global navigation systems GLONASS looks very promising in a whole range of spheres: transportation, national security and even agricultural industry, where GLONASS technologies, according to the experts’ estimates, allow to boost yield capacity by 30-50 percent,” Putin said.

Earlier Monday, Brazilian Foreign Minister Luiz Alberto Figueiredo told RIA Novosti that two more GLONASS stations were to open in the states of Pernambuco and Rio Grande do Sul. According to the top diplomat, the technological alliance between Brazil and Russia is an important element of bilateral relations, as it facilitates modernization and global competitiveness for both countries.

The GLONASS network, which was put into operation in 1993, is considered Russia’s answer to GPS. The network provides real-time positioning and speed data for surface, sea and airborne objects.
