India's first navigation satellite launched by PSLV

spaceflightnow.com said:

India's first navigation satellite launched Monday aboard a Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle, beginning a program to provide autonomous positioning services for users over Indian territory.

At least six more navigation spacecraft will launch through 2015 to form the Indian Regional Navigation Satellite System, which aims to provide navigation services with an accuracy of less than 20 meters, or about 65 feet, independent of U.S. and Russian satellites.
