News: India successfully launches final INRSS navigation satellite

pocketgpsworld.com
The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) successfully launched the seventh and final satellite in the Indian Regional Navigation Satellite System (IRNSS) earlier today.

IRNSS-1G launched atop Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) PSLV-C33 from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Andrha Pradesh, India. This satellite completes the space segment and will provide a regional navigation service to users in India.

The first satellite, IRNNSS-1A, launched in July 2013 with the remainder launching in the intervening three years. Perhaps those managing the much delayed and vastly over budget Galileo program could learn a few things about efficient launch schedules from the ISRO.
