Keywords: electrodynamics of moving media, atmosphere, trajectory curvature, angular deviation

In this work we performed analytical calculations of the velocity gradient movement effect of the Earth's atmosphere on a trajectory curvature and the angular deviation of the laser beam with reference to the problem of coordinates determining of spacecraft. It is shown that the effects of electrodynamics of moving media should have an impact on global space navigation systems.
