This is a return to flight mission carrying the next generation NavIC satellite that will replace the IRNSS-1G satellite launched in 2016.
NavIC is a constellation of seven satellites offering the standard position service for civilian users and restricted service for strategic users.
Three satellites of the constellation are placed in the geostationary orbit and four satellites in the inclined geosynchronous orbit. The ground network consists of a control centre, range and integrity monitoring stations and two way ranging stations.
NavIC signals covering 1500kms around India are designed to provide user position accuracy better than 20 meters and timing accuracy better than 50 nanoseconds.
