"JSC" Satellite system "Gonets" together with CJSC GK "Navigator" began testing a promising modem that will be used in the line of intelligent navigation terminals "ERA-GLONASS", - quotes the statement of the press service of the RIA Novosti company.

It is assumed that the modem will support the transmission of an emergency call signal using alternative satellite communication channels. 

With the help of such a device, Russians will be able to send emergency messages from anywhere in Russia.

In 2020, the Soyuz-2.1b launch vehicle launched the Gonets-M satellite communications spacecraft unit and the ERA-1 service platform into the calculated orbits. 

All three communication satellites "Gonets-M" are taken under control.
