Launch of Indian navigation satellite is recognised as successful

Satellite launched into Earth's geosynchronous orbit weighs 2,232 kilograms⁠

Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) chief Shri Somanath praised the successful launch of the NVS01 navigation satellite. In addition, he announced a similar mission in July next year.

According to media reports, the ISRO chief said the Chandrayaan satellite would be launched into space on 3 July. He also said that several more such missions were expected to be launched.

Other representatives of the specialised agency noted government support for mission development. Experts gathered at the dedicated centre also expressed satisfaction with the NVS-01's performance to date.

They said the orbit-raising manoeuvres would be used to bring the satellite to its planned level in two days.

The satellite, which has reached geosynchronous Earth orbit, weighs 2,232 kilograms and is equipped with the country's first developed atomic clock, the space agency recalled.

NVS-01 is the first second-generation satellite designed to improve monitoring and navigation capabilities from space, as reported by Prensa Latina, a partner of TV BRICS.

A locally developed rubidium atomic clock will be used to precisely synchronise GPS locations, while satellite data will be used for individual and strategic purposes.
