India to launch new navigation satellite

New Delhi, May 29 (Prensa Latina) The Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) will launch the NVS-1 satellite from the second platform of the Sathish Dhawan Center. The orbiter will carry on board the first atomic clock developed in the country, which will be used for precise synchronization of the GPS location.

According to the organization, the NVS-1, weighing 2,232 kilograms, is the first of the second-generation of satellites with improved characteristics such as the addition of signals in the L1 band, expected to form part of India’s NavIC constellation (Navigation with Indian Constellation).

Indian authorities hope this will improve satellite navigation and monitoring capabilities.

In a recent statement, experts explained that NavIC is a constellation of seven satellites that offer the standard position service for civilian users and one restricted for military use.

Three of the satellites are located in the geostationary orbit and four are in the inclined geosynchronous orbit. The terrestrial network consists of a control center, range and integrity monitoring stations and two-way measurement stations, according to the ISRO.

The NavIC signals cover 1,500 kilometers around India and are designed to provide positioning to users with an accuracy of less than 20 meters.
