India : INDIA to offer GAGAN system to SE ASIAN countries

August 18, 2014

In a bid to generate financial resources and demonstrate the country's next generation navigation and survelliance technologies, the Indian government has proposed to offer its recently created GPS-aided geo augmented navigation (Gagan) system to Southeast Asian countries.

A satellite-based augmentation system, Gagan, helps aircraft navigate by GPS, so far seen in passenger cars. It provides free improved satellite navigation signals over India that are 10 times more accurate than GPS.

The system's advanced features deliver better accuracy, integrity and continuity of navigation services for a range of applications in the civil aviation industry by using data from satellites instead of ground-based radar tracking systems.

AAI is presently working on demonstrating the technology to interested parties.
