Launch of Indian IRNSS-1C GPS Satellite on PSLV Rocket

An Indian PSLV rocket successfully launched this evening at 20:02 UTC from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre carrying the IRNSS-1C satellite into orbit. IRNSS (Indian Regional Navigation Satellite System)-1C is the third of seven satellites planned that will provide positioning data for India under the complete control of Indian government due to the fact the American GPS system may not be guaranteed in hostile situations to foreign users.
