MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The Russian Glonass global navigation system will fully switch to domestically-produced electronic components in the next two years, Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said Thursday.

"We have found solutions for switching to a domestically-produced [electronic] component base within a year and a half or two years," Rogozin said at an international congress on the ERA-GLONASS system.

Glonass is a satellite navigation system operated by the Russian Aerospace Defense Forces.

The Glonass project, launched in 1993, is considered to be Russia's answer to GPS (Global Positioning System).
