Navigation Satellite NVS-1 launched

The geostationary satellite launch vehicle (GSLV) was used by the Space Research Organisation (ISRO) on Monday morning to launch the navigation satellite “Navic” NVS-1. This satellite is specifically made to support the military and keep an eye on shipping operations.

America’s response to the Global Positioning System (GPS) is Navigator. NAVIC will be utilized in time dilation, emergencies, location-based services, personal mobility, resource monitoring, surveying and geodesy, and terrestrial, aerial, and maritime transportation.

A region of around 1,500 kilometers around India and the continental United States will receive real-time position and timing data from the satellite, which functions similarly to a GPS. The navigator is made such that the signal may give the user a position that is more accurate by 20 meters and timing that is more accurate by 50 nanoseconds.
