The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), launches its advanced navigation satellite GSLV-F12 and NVS-01 on Monday.

This spacecraft is part of the NavIC series, a constellation of satellites designed to enhance monitoring and navigation capabilities. NVS-01 marks the beginning of the second-generation satellites in the NavIC series, intending to improve services and introduce innovative features to the system.

NavIC signals are designed to provide user position accuracy of better than 20 metres and timing accuracy of better than 50 nanoseconds.

The 51.7-metre tall Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle, on its 15th flight, carried the navigation satellite NVS-01 weighing 2,232 kg on Monday at 10.42 am from the second launch pad at the Satish Dhawan Space Centre (SHAR) here, about 130 km from Chennai.

Nearly 20 minutes after the flight, the rocket is scheduled to deploy the satellite in a geosynchronous transfer orbit (GTO) at an altitude of about 251 km, ISRO said.
