Indian Launches Fourth IRNSS Spacecraft

The fourth satellite of Indian Regional Navigation Satellite System, IRNSS-1D, was launched toward its intended geosynchronous orbit (GSO) today (Saturday, March 28, 2015) onboard the Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV-C27).

Seven satellites will comprise the IRNSS constellation being developed by the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) to provide navigational services. IRNSS will help augment the satellite-based navigation system of India, which is currently under development and will provide navigation, tracking, and mapping services to the South Asia region.

Expanding EGNOS Horizons

The European Geostationary Navigation Overlay Service (EGNOS) has a European regional coverage that could be extended quite easily to areas adjacent to the European Union. Backed by the European Commission, a public/private consortium is operating programs of technical assistance to prepare nations in the Mediterranean region to adopt and exploit European GNSS services in their priority market segments, namely aviation and road freight transport/logistics.
