India Set to Launch own Satellite Navigation System


India’s very own satellite navigation system GAGAN (GPS Aided Geo Augmented Navigation) is all set to be launched soon. GAGAN is a satellite based navigational system that would be used to aid air traffic controllers to track and improve the efficiency of air traffic over the Indian air space.

The system has been jointly developed by the Airports Authority of India (AAI) and the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) and will comply with International Civil Aviation Organization standards. What the GAGAN aims to achieve is to improve the efficiency of the entire aviation sector in India with the help of increased fuel savings, better traffic management and decreased workload on air traffic controllers
