IRNSS – IB: Another step forward
April 4, 2014.
ISRO’s Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle, PSLV-C24, successfully launched IRNSS-1B.
The second satellite of the seven constituting the Indian
Regional Navigation Satellite System (IRNSS).
The fi rst one was successfully launched on July 02, 2013.
Two more satellites of this constellation, namely, IRNSS-1C and IRNSS-
1D, are planned to be launched in the second half of 2014.
The entire IRNSS constellation of seven satellites is
planned to be completed by 2015-16.
The project, initiated almost a decade back, had a long phase of lull.
But lull before the ‘storm’ was worth its while, in form of successful launches.
Kudos to the team ISRO!
Let the ‘storm’ continue
