NAVIC satellite is used by India for its regional satellite navigation system. Navik navigation satellite will be sent through GSLV in Geosynchronous Transfer Orbit.
What is the ‘Navigator’ system?
Actually NAVIC is a regional satellite navigation system. It is a group of seven satellites, which are orbiting above the earth in geostationary orbit. It works in conjunction with a 24*7 network of ground stations. NavIC satellites include RNSS-1A, IRNSS-1B, IRNSS-1C, IRNSS-1D, IRNSS-1E, IRNSS-1F and IRNSS-1G satellites.

Where is the ‘navigator’ system used?
NAVIC’ system is used in terrestrial, air and sea transport, location based service, scientific research etc. Significantly, the NAVIC system operates in the L5 band, which is a frequency exclusively assigned to the Indian system. This frequency ensures that there is minimum interference from other signals. In contrast, GPS operates in the L1 band, which can be shared with many other navigation systems around the world.
