India's indigenous global positioning system NaVIC ( Navigation With Indian Constellation) now has an international benchmark standardization. Back in September this year, the International body
3GPP (3rd Generation Partnership Project) has given its nod of recognition.
Actually, Its own desi GPS (Global Positioning System) is not a GPS but is an RPS (Regional Positioning System) technology. It's developed by the primary space agency of India- ISRO (Indian Space Research Organisation) which is also the sole operator.
It was the historic moment in the space world and for India. On Thursday, April 2016, ISRO (Indian Space Research Organization) has propelled the seventh and last satellite of the Indian Regional Navigation Satellite System, IRNSS 1G, onboard the PSLV C33, from Satish Dhawan Space Center in Sriharikota.
Here are the top facts related to NaVIC as we to try to uncover the hidden points of our own desi RPS.
India is Number 5 to have it's own Navigation System with the imminent launch of NAVIC and thus joint the league of Russia, China, USA, European Union.
The satellite was securely situated into its sub geosynchronous exchange sphere with a perigee (closest point to earth) of 284 km and an apogee (most remote point to earth) of 20,657 km. It is assessed to cover a crucial period of 12 years, finishing the IRNSS heavenly body of seven satellites.
India's Prime Minister, Mr. Narendra Modi named the framework as NAVIC, deciphered as a mariner community, committing it to the sailors and fishermen of the nation. The satellite framework discovers its application in marine, earthly, and flying routes. NAVIC is extended as Navigation with Indian Constellation.
The framework can permit GPS vehicle tracking, fleet management, mapping, disaster management and geodetic information catch, visual and voice route to give some examples. Its administration can be incorporated into the cell phones utilized by climbers and anglers for instance.
As opposed to other navigational frameworks, which utilize in excess of 20 satellites for its capacity, the IRNSS framework just incorporates 7 satellites. It is territorial in nature, dissimilar to different frameworks that are worldwide, and can give precisely the situating data inside the nation and around 1500 km away from its limits.
At present, every one of the satellites under the IRNSS framework is experiencing adjustment testing and the check of their exhibition. This will proceed throughout the following hardly any prior months it will be put to utilize.
ISRO authorities expressed that the IRNSS satellites arrived at a complete expense of Rs. 1,420 crore.
India's very own RPS - NAVIC is the glory of the Indian aeronautical framework. Every Indian should be proud as we are and we shall all wait for the day when it becomes from RPS to GPS and rank at #1 worldwide.
