Coming Thursday, ISRO will present their ambitious project in a meeting to be held in Bangalore. They will showcase their Indian Regional Navigation Satellite

The advantages of using the Indian Navigation system and how the IRNSS constellation satellites are deemed to be more accurate than the American GPS system will be demonstrated in the two-day in front of senior scientists from Space Application Centre (SAC) Ahmedabad.
There are Seven IRNSS constellation which will help in identifying the location, which is scheduled to be fully operational by July, 2016. All the seven satellites of Indian Regional Navigation Satellite System (IRNSS) are expected to be in orbit by March 2016, Indian Space Research Organisation said today.

This initiative by ISRO is a step towards providing India with its own independent navigation, and this is surely a reason to be proud of.
