India Launches Second Navigation Satellite

    India successfully launched its second navigation satellite, the 'desi GPS', through its Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle. The satellite navigation system is a fleet of seven satellites that will help provide precise locations within 20 meters.
India has become the sixth nation to embark on this after America, Russia, Europe, China and Japan. The first Indian navigation satellite launched last year in July is working normally.
Till now most of us have relied on the American GPS or the Global Positioning System, very popular on smart phones but not good enough for military applications as it can't be relied upon for seamless coverage in times of war and the in-built error makes it unsuitable for precision strikes.
