On 10th October, ISRO will launch the third of seven series of satellites to put in place India's own navigation system on par with US' Global Positioning System (GPS) from the spaceport of Sriharikota.

ISRO said today that the launch has been scheduled at 1.56 AM on 10th October.

The IRNSS 1C satellite would be launched on the 28th flight of India's PSLV-C26, almost 100 km away, from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre at Sriharikota.

ISRO plans to send seven satellites to put in place the Indian Regional Navigational Satellite System (IRNSS), as part of its aspirations to build a regional navigational system equivalent to Global Positioning System of the US.

The first two satellites in the series, IRNSS 1A and IRNSS 1B were launched from Sriharikota on 1st July 2013 and 4th April 4 2014 respectively.

Officials said that ISRO needs to launch at least four of the seven satellites to start operations of the IRNSS.

IRNSS is designed to provide accurate position information service to users in the country as well as the region extending upto 1,500 km from its boundary, its primary service area.

IRNSS' applications include terrestrial and marine navigation, disaster management, vehicle tracking and fleet management.

ISRO officials said, IRNSS is similar to US' Global Positioning System, Russia's Glonass and Europe's Galileo. China and Japan also have similar systems, 'Beidou' and 'Quasi Zenith'.
