The aim of the IRNSS is to provide autonomous satellite navigation for the Indian region, idependend of GPS or any other satellite navigation system.

The IRNSS would provide a Standard Positioning Service open for civilian use and a more accurate Precision Service for authorised users (mainly military). The system uses L5 (1176.45 MHz) and S band (2492.08 MHz).

The IRNSS is planned to have 7 satellites and associated ground infrastructure. The first satellite was successfully launched in July 2013. The whole system is planned to be available in 2015-2016.
