The main differentiator of SDCM with respect to other SBAS systems is that it is conceived as an SBAS augmentation that would perform integrity monitoring of both GPS and GLONASS satellites, whereas the rest of current SBAS initiatives provide corrections and integrity just to GPS satellites.
SDCM Ground Segment
The main components of the SDCM Ground Segment are a network of reference stations, central processing facilities, uplink stations and terrestrial broadcast means.
The SDCM network of reference stations is composed of 19 stations in Russia and 5 stations abroad. The central processing facilities are located in Moscow and it is complemented by a reserve facility.
SDCM Space Segment
SDCM currently uses transponders on the Luch Multifunctional Space Relay System geostationary communication satellites to transmit correction and integrity data. The SDCM Space Segment will be composed of 3+1 GEO satellites:
|Luch-5A||167 deg East||Dec 11, 2011||10 years|
|Luch-5B||16 deg West||Nov 3, 2012||10 years|
|Luch-5||95 deg East||2014||10 years|
SDCM Objectives and Performances
With this architecture the whole Russian Federation will be covered as the SDCM Service Area.
The SDCM objectives are:
- Integrity monitoring of GNSS satellites (GPS and GLONASS)
- Provide differential corrections to GLONASS satellites
- A posteriori detail analysis of GLONASS system performances.
The positioning performance provided by SDCM will be of 1 to 1.5 meters in the horizontal plane and of 2 to 3 meters in vertical. In addition, it is expected to offer a cm-level positioning service for users at a range of 200 kilometers of the reference stations.
SDCM Future and Evolutions
The Luch 5A was launched on December 2011 and the Luch-5B on November 2012, having reached the geostationary orbit in December 2012.
The Luch family is expected to be replaced by "Enisey" in the scope of the SDCM evolution.
