Indian government plans to build an independent satellite navigation system using home-grown components. The project, called the Indian Regional Navigation System, will be implemented over the next five or six years and will consist of a constellation of seven or eight satellites, as well as a large ground segment.

All of the IRNS will be under Indian control, ISRO officials said, and the space and ground segments and user receivers will be built in India.

It also constitutes one of the main components of the Communication, Navigation and Surveillance/Air Traffic Management system that has been adopted by the International Civil Aviation Organization for worldwide implementation.

When completed, the CNS/ATM system will provide seamless navigation services across geographical boundaries and eventually will replace different types of ground-based navigation, ISRO said in a news release.
