India has become the fourth country in the world to have its independent regional navigation satellite system recognised by the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) as a part of the World Wide Radio Navigation System (WWRNS).

The other three countries that have its navigation systems recognised by the IMO are the US, Russia and China.

The Indian Regional Navigation Satellite System (IRNSS) was designed to provide accurate position information services to assist in the navigation of ships in Indian Ocean waters. The Director General of Shipping (DGS) had approached the IMO for granting recognition to the IRNSS as a component of the WWRNS, similar to the US-owned Global Position System (GPS) or Russia’s Global Navigation Satellite System (GLONASS) – a process that took two years.

On Friday, Director General of Shipping Amitabh Kumar told The Indian Express, “Overdependence on any one system is not safe. The IMO has encouraged various countries to design their own satellite navigation systems. The IMO has now accepted IRNSS as an alternative navigation module. It was in use only on a pilot basis earlier but now all merchant vessels are authorised to use it, even small fishing vessels.”

Kumar said the IRNSS was a modern and more accurate navigation system and at any given time, there are at least 2,500 merchant vessels in Indian waters that will now be able to use the system. The IRNSS will be used to assist in the navigation of ships in ocean waters within the area of approximately 1,500 km from the Indian boundary, the DGS said in a statement.

The statement said, “Details of the tests carried out on merchant ships with regard to the accuracy of the system were included in the report prepared by Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) which was submitted to IMO for consideration.”

Calling it a significant achievement towards the ‘Atmanirbhar Bharat’ initiative of the Union government, the statement said, “The Maritime Safety Committee of IMO during its recent meeting held from 4 to 11 November 2020 has approved the recognition of the IRNSS as a component of the World-wide radio navigation system.”

Indian Regional Navigation Satellite System (IRNSS) : NavIC
Tender for NavIC Receiver Module Development
IRNSS is an independent regional navigation satellite system being developed by India. It is designed to provide accurate position information service to users in India as well as the region extending up to 1500 km from its boundary, which is its primary service area. An Extended Service Area lies between primary service area and area enclosed by the rectangle from Latitude 30 deg South to 50 deg North, Longitude 30 deg East to 130 deg East.

IRNSS will provide two types of services, namely, Standard Positioning Service (SPS) which is provided to all the users and Restricted Service (RS), which is an encrypted service provided only to the authorised users. The IRNSS System is expected to provide a position accuracy of better than 20 m in the primary service area.

Some applications of IRNSS are:

  • Terrestrial, Aerial and Marine Navigation
  • Disaster Management
  • Vehicle tracking and fleet management
  • Integration with mobile phones
  • Precise Timing
  • Mapping and Geodetic data capture
  • Terrestrial navigation aid for hikers and travellers
  • Visual and voice navigation for drivers
The IRNSS Signal-in-Space Interface Control Document (ICD Ver. 1.1) for Standard Positioning Service (SPS) is released to the public to provide the essential information on the IRNSS signal-in-space, to facilitate research & development and aid the commercial use of the IRNSS signals for navigation-based applications.

IRNSS-1A spacecraft provides messaging service to users in the Indian region. The Signal-in-Space Interface Control Document (ICD Ver. 1.0) for Messaging services (IRNSS 1A) is released to the public to provide the essential information to facilitate the use of IRNSS1A Signal-in-space for development of receiver and associated application.

The space segment consists of the IRNSS constellation of eight satellites, NavIC. Three satellites are located in suitable orbital slots in the geostationary orbit and the remaining four are located in geosynchronous orbits with the required inclination and equatorial crossings in two different planes. All the satellites of the constellation are configured identically. The satellites are configured with I-1K Bus to be compatible for launch on-board PSLV.
IRNSS-1A | IRNSS-1B | IRNSS-1C | IRNSS-1D | IRNSS-1E | IRNSS-1F | IRNSS-1G | IRNSS-1H | IRNSS-1|

Launch of mobile chipset compatible to NavIC
Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) has provided consultation for Qualcomm towards enabling NavIC capability in their Snapdragon mobile chipset platforms. These chipsets are being released by Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. The release of chipsets will help accelerate the adoption of NavIC by smartphone OEMs. The OEMs can now release any new models for Indian market which are NavIC enabled, thus eventually making NavIC as a standard feature in the upcoming handsets, applications, processors, etc. It will also enhance the geolocation capabilities of smartphones within the coverage region of NavIC.

The most accurate Navigation system. Just because it is Indian then blindly start talking BS.

it is more accurate than the American GPS, yes its not global like GPS but who needs one? We need a regional system for domestic use and in future maybe the envelope can expand.
Oya. It is the most accurate in the World, with a 20m accuracy.

Oops, my smartphone got a GPS of 2-3m accuracy.

"IRNSS will provide two types of services, namely, Standard Positioning Service (SPS) which is provided to all the users and Restricted Service (RS), which is an encrypted service provided only to the authorised users.

The IRNSS System is expected to provide a position accuracy of better than 20 m in the primary service area. "
Accuracy
The system is intended to provide an absolute position accuracy of better than 10 metres (33 ft) throughout Indian landmass and better than 20 metres (66 ft) in the Indian Ocean as well as a region extending approximately 1,500 km (930 mi) around India.[43] The Space Applications Centre in 2017 said NavIC will provide standard positioning service to all users with a position accuracy up to 5 m.[42] The GPS, for comparison, had a position accuracy of 20–30 m.[44] Unlike GPS which is dependent only on L-band, NavIC has dual frequency (S and L bands). When low frequency signal travels through atmosphere, its velocity changes due to atmospheric disturbances. US banks on atmospheric model to assess frequency error and it has to update this model from time to time to assess the exact error. In India's case, the actual delay is assessed by measuring the difference in delay of dual frequency (S and L bands). Therefore, NavIC is not dependent on any model to find the frequency error and is more accurate than GPS.[45]

more accurate than gps? Laugh my *** off
You can’t even manufacture the atom clock

just like u claim you have better resolution of moon mapping but need nasa satellites locate your crashed lander?

Yes I know you chinese bots will talk any BS, any claim because you’re so insecure.

ISRO never asked for NASA’s help locating the rover just google it yourself, ISRO had located it long before NASA.

And GPS is a global system, NavIc is a regional system.

”Something’s made in India...” Lets talk any random BS that comes to mind about it to undermine it.

what else could you do?

Save all the bs, you can’t manufacture the atom clock and need buy from the west, explain to me how come the bought product be more accurate than where it comes from?

not global, accuracy is not good
China did not even have a nav system when it was a 3 trillion GDP. Let's celebrate the efforts of a nation and not tear it down because you guys were too backward to accomplish it as early into a far lessser GDP. You wu mao's need to stop being so triggered

It is currently a regional system. We can provide it to the subcontinent like Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh and Srilanka or maybe to Afghanistan as well.

In future it may expand to continental and then global.
we can provide it free to our sarc neighbors except pakistan .
Ever heard beidu navigation system of China and it comparable to compass navigation system of EU both have a accuracy of better than 10 meters
better develop one for your own use than promoting chinese stuff .

Do you have any of your own? Comparing a technology in its primary phase with European technology that is matured enough.

You can’t even make satellites on your own, why the hell you all come here for trolling?

We should kick out Pakistan from SAARC, it has been the hurdle for the group member countries’ joint growth.

For them Kashmir matters more than their own Pakistan, in the last SAARC meeting all SAARC members spoke about cooperation and raised funds to fight the pandemic whereas Pakistani delegate kept ranting “Kashmir... Kashmir..., Lockdown in Kashmir... Human rights violation in Kashmir... curfew in Kashmir...Occupation in Kashmir... what about Kashmir...”.
All countries raised funds, even Afghanistan with its current economy gave a huge sum, everyone contributed but Pakistan didn’t even contribute a single penny.

Pakistan is a liability more than an Asset for SAARC.

Their government are not business minded but just plain idiots. If Pakistan had been a true democracy then our relations would have been excellent, it is their military under who’s rule is constantly growing hostilities between the two nations.
