ISRO on Wednesday successfully launched the satellite onboard trusted workhorse PSLV-C31 from the spaceport of Sriharikota.
IRNSS-1E is the fifth navigation satellite in the IRNSS space system, comprising seven satellites, which would be on par with US-based GPS once the full complement of spacecraft is launched.
