Global navigation satellite systems. An example of competition or cooperation between great powers?
Languages of publication
The objective of this article is to answer the question whether we currently deal with closer cooperation or rather with competition in the field of Global Navigation Satellite Systems. The author proves that both competition and cooperation are visible in the field of global satellite navigation, which when perceived from numerous perspectives do not have to be mutually exclusive. Cooperation usually results from rational economic calculation. Competition may be connected with factors of an economic, strategic and in particular military nature. Militarization of space is in itself a strongly conflictogenic element which may be confirmed by relationships in the field of GNSS. Particularly many conflicts result in the problem of compatibility of coded signals associated with defence and security.
