A Panacea for Defence Sector in Global Navigation System: IRNSS

Rahul Shankar;

Abstract

India is a developing country with developing reliable technology. Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) is developing a satellite technology called Indian Regional Navigation Satellite System (IRNSS), which will make India independent of foreign location tracking system such as American GPS. Developing of such an indigenous satellite system is important for India in defence sector. This technology plays an important role particularly in military operation because foreign government controlled global navigation system is not reliable in hostile situation as it happened to Indian military depending on American GPS during kargil war. This paper proposes how IRNSS can be used in defence sector and reduce dependence on foreign global navigation system.
