Navigation Satellites

IRNSS-1I spacecraft was successfully launched aboard PSLV-C41 on 12th April 2018. The spacecraft was the replacement for IRNSS-1A and is providing intended navigation services. However, IRNSS-1A continues to provide messaging services like disaster alerts and other societal applications.

The subsequent launches include GSLV-MK III that is planned to launch GSAT-29, PSLV-C42 launch and Chandrayaan-2 Mission.
