We just found out that the Russian Government is promoting as much as it can its GLONASS system, the equivalent to the worldwide know GPS.

Apparently, from our sources, we know that Russian Authorities are not going to certify ships without an AIS system that is fully compatible with GLONASS.

As of today, we don’t know of any company producing such equipment.

The smart move of the Russian Government has been though, to ally with the Indian one. We’ll see how the race goes on among the three main contenders: GPS-GLONASS-GALILEO.

Nothing like a little research in google to find more info about this. This article (sorry, in Spanish) in particular explains a bit more about the current situation (from April).
