ISRO to launch navigational satellite next month

New Delhi, Sept. 29 (ANI): Following the grand success of Mars Orbiter Mission, ISRO scientists will reportedly launch navigational satellite, IRNSS 1C, on October 10.

Out of the seven satellites planned for the formation of the Indian Regional Navigation Satellite System, IRNSS 1C is the third one.

By next year all the seven satellites are planned to be in space.

IRNSS will provide Standard Positioning Service and Restricted Service with a position accuracy of better than 20 meters in the 1500 kilometers area covering the Indian peninsula.

This will provide terrestrial, aerial and marine navigation accurately and help disaster management, vehicle tracking and fleet management, mobile phone tracking, mapping of terrain as well as air and sea navigation. (ANI)
