The presentation gives results of future GLONASS constellation structures trade-off analysis to support accuracy and availability improvement as well as competitiveness of navigation services for user. The evolution and methods of the GLONASS OG compensation were searched for different cases of the OG. Preliminary proposals for the GLONASS orbital group up to 2020 year are offered.


the GLONASS system, availability, the orbital group (OG), the OG structure, the OG stability.
