NavIC provides significantly increased GNSS accuracy to the substantial market of India and it’s surrounding area. Any GNSS based technology operating in India will benefit considerably from the inclusion of NavIC in its constellation compatibility. With an intended absolute position accuracy of better than 10m, NavIC has the potential to lead the way in navigational accuracy in this region.
NavIC based vehicle tracking systems are now compulsory for all commercial vehicles in India and Qualcomm has launched three new chipsets that support navigation with NavIC.
The ability to simulate NavIC for research, development and testing is essential not only for Indian based technology but also for any global technology that will be operational within this region.
