Russians consider IGS as Congress moves to limit GLONASS, foreign GNSS monitoring stations on U.S. soil
from Inside GNSS
Lawmakers are poised to sharply limit the ability of foreign nations to own or control satellite system monitoring stations on U.S. territory, a rare show of congressional cooperation triggered by a Russian request to place stations supporting its satellite navigation system on American soil. The House and Senate have agreed on language to require the president to obtain certification from the secretary of defense and the director of national intelligence before authorizing construction in the U.S. of a GNSS monitoring station that would be controlled by a foreign government.
