Russia to track GLONASS from Australia

The Russian Space Agency is reporting that it is about to sign an agreement on "the establishment of monitoring stations for the Russian GLONASS navigation system" near Brisbane.

It is also reporting that it is also considering Australian participation in Russian research programs.

I believe that members from the Russian Space Agency are in Australia for the 14th Australian International Aerospace Congress currently being held in Melbourne, and may be holding discussions with the Australian Space Policy Unit.

It comes hot on the heels of other agreements with the USA and UK, and shows that the Space Policy Unit must be working very hard at the moment.
