IRNSS-1A & IRNSS-1B

 

  • Indian Space Research Organisation has replaced a faulty component in the PSLV-C22 rocket and rescheduled the flight of the IRNSS-1A satellite, India’s first regional navigation satellite. The 1450-kg IRNSS-1A
  • It forms the country’s new and third category of multi-use spacecraft-navigation along with the older communication and remote-sensing (or earth observation) satellites.
  • It will offer motion and location information over the sub-continent just as the popular U.S. Global Positioning System, or GPS, has done across the world for several years.
  • ISRO says data from the indigenous system will be superior to information coming from GPS
  • They noticed the problem with the actuator — which helps in the motion of the launcher — late last month during routine electric checks while assembling the second stage at the Sriharikota launch site.
  • Over the next days the four stages of the vehicle will be put together
  • IRNSS-1A is one of the seven regional navigation satellites that will guide civil and military services on position of people or objects in the coming years.
  • The next one, IRNSS-1B, is due in early 2014 and the full constellation is planned to be completed in 2015.
