Isro’s PSLV-C32 Places India’s Sixth Navigation Satellite IRNSS-1F In Orbit

Indian Space agency ISRO’s 6th navigation satellite IRNSS-1F was launched on board trusted workhorse PSLV C32 . This launch was delayed by a minute as scientists tried to avoid space debris. The IRNSS-1F or Indian Regional Navigation Satellite System is aimed at providing navigation accurately on par with the US-based Global Positioning System.

ISRO or Indian Space Research Organisation has launched 5 navigation satellites under the system.   The satellites in this series continuously beam down data that can be read even by smart phones.The satellite system is designed to cover a region of about 1,500 km on all sides of the border.   

ISRO scientists plan to put all seven navigation satellites into orbit by March 2016. The last in the series is expected to be launched by the month end. The 44.4 metre tall satellite has a liftoff mass of 1,425 kg and was launched in sub-Geosynchronous Transfer Orbit. It has a 12 year mission life. India’s navigation system will cost about Rs. 1,400 crore. ISRO says the system will have an error margin of no more than 20 metres.
