The Indian Space Research Organisation (#ISRO) has successfully launched its seventh and last satellite of Indian Regional Navigation Satellite System (#IRNSS) constellation, IRNSS-1G, on board PSLV-C33, launched from Satish Dhawan Space Centre at Sriharikota.

Apart from the civilian usage, the Indian Regional Navigation Satellite System comprising seven satellites will be used for defence purposes as well.

Till date, India has launched 6 regional navigational satellites (IRNSS-1A, 1B, 1C, ID, 1E and 1F) as part of a constellation of seven satellites to provide accurate position information service to users across the country and the region, extending up to an area of 1,500 km.With this, India now joins the elite group of countries which have their own navigation system technology to cater to the mammoth navigational needs.
