Information and Analysis Center for Positioning, Navigation and Timing (IAC PNT) provides scientific and technical support for GLONASS maintenance and development, performs Systems research on Positioning, Navigation and Timing, ensures independent monitoring and confirm GLONASS performance, provides informational and methodological support for GLONASS civil users.
IAC PNT coordinates the activities on compatibility and complementarity of navigation satellite systems to create conditions for using GLONASS worldwide, to promote GLONASS services on the world market of navigation services within the framework of international cooperation and large-scale implementation of GLONASS-based technologies.
Global Navigation Satellite System (GLONASS) is a leading global navigation satellite system. The main GLONASS goal is to determine the position of land, sea and air objects with high precision. Completely deployed GLONASS constellation is composed of 24 satellites.
Today, FGUP TsNIImash has unique technical and human resources to fulfill tasks of GLONASS civil infrastructure management, control and confirmation of GLONASS performance, scientific and technical support for GLONASS maintenance and development.
Information and Analysis Center for Positioning, Navigation and Timing at FGUP TsNIImash is an engine of GLONASS development for the purpose of social and economic development of the Russian Federation, international cooperation and scientific research.

Mobile Instrumentation and Diagnostics Laboratory (MIDL) is developed at TsNIImash IAC PNT. MIDL is a multipurpose laboratory for mobile monitoring, assessment of radio navigation field, testing of radio navigation equipment for users, analysis of interference environment and identifying of interference sources. The laboratory is based on a KAMAZ six-wheel rough terrain truck and a minibus. MIDL is used for monitoring along Russian transport routes, within the city, in the airport areas and on highways under difficult conditions. MIDL took part in numerous maritime expeditions in the high northern and southern latitudes.
