India launches first navigation satellite

by GPS4US 2013-07-08 17:04
The world’s second most populous country launched its first navigation satellite last week, as the Indian Regional Navigation Satellite System (IRNSS) successfully put IRNSS-1A into orbit from the spaceport of Sriharikota.

According to reports, the satellite has power and is operating nominally.

IRNSS-1A is the first of seven satellites the Indian government will use for its navigation system, which is schedule to go online in 2016. Once finished, the system will provide location coordinates to both civilian and government users.

Currently, America’s GPS, Russia’s GLONASS and China’s BeiDou systems cover India. IRNSS will provide additional coverage within 1,5000 kilometers of India.

The seven satellites include four in geosynchronous orbits inclined at 29 degrees and three in geostationary orbit.
