MOSCOW, March 2 /PRNewswire/ -- On May 12, 2009, concurrently with the exhibition Communication-Expocom-2009, the main event in the field of navigation in Russia is to take place at the CEC Expocentre - an international congress-exhibition project Navigation systems, technologies and services. The major goal of the project is informing the wide audience both in Russia and abroad of innovation technologies in the field of satellite navigation.

Two important activities are to take place at the same time: the Third International Satellite Navigation Forum and the International Exhibition Navitech-Expo-2009.

The world navigation equipment market is developing rapidly offering navigation services to an ever-growing number of users in the most diversified spectrum of activity spheres In May 2008 a wide-range and representative navigation equipment exposition was formed and successfully demonstrated at the Communication-Expocom-2008 exhibition. In Russia emergency rescue services and transport companies, construction companies and enterprises of the oil and gas branch, logistics and power engineering are from year to year more and more actively introducing technologies based on the functioning of such global positioning systems as GPS and GLONASS. The work on integration of GLONASS with the global navigation systems GPS and GALILEO is in progress.

The organizers are expecting from the Navitech-Expo-2009 exhibition substantial growth of the amount of business contacts among content providers, telecommunication companies, and subscriber equipment and system applets developers. Thus, for example navigation can be successfully accompanied by all sorts of commercial and advertising information.

A complete complex of issues connected with the use of navigation services in Russia and in the world will be offered the Forum and exhibition participants for discussion, including:

- the current status of the market of services in the field of satellite and cellular positioning and avenues of its development; - different branch applications created by the leading Russian and foreign developers; - personal, automotive and specialized branch satellite navigation equipment available at the market; - legal aspects of the use of satellite navigation systems within the territory of Russia; - experience of the leading foreign companies successfully using satellite navigation in their business; - experience of the Russian and foreign companies in the field of organizing business on rendering navigation services to corporate and retail customers;
