Qualcomm announces the use of ISRO’s NavIC satellite navigation system in its chipset
Qualcomm, an American company that makes chipsets for mobile and other telecommunications devices, has announced to support the India’s NavIC satellite navigation system. Navigation with India constellation (NavIC) is an India Regional Navigation Satellite system (IRNSS) which has been developed by Indian Space organisation (ISRO). Tested by Qualcomm :: Qualcomm has completed testing of ISRO’s Navigation with Indian Constellation (NavIC) system for geographical location and measurement. ‘NavIC’ works on a system of satellites established by ISRO which has been developed as an alternative to GPS(US made system) in the Indian subcontinent.
The first performance of ‘NavIC’ on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon platform will be held at Aerocity in the capital during the three-day Indian Mobile Congress starting on Monday. ISRO said that Qualcomm has developed its new chipset platform in collaboration with the Indian Space Research organization and has also completed its testing. ISRO also said that this chipset platform supports ‘NavIC’. This chipset will be available for Mobile handsets making companies from November this year.
Qualcomm is the first major chipset company to buy technology from ISRO to use ‘NavIC’. This will help to accelerate the use of ‘NavIC’ , improving the exact measurement of geographical location and finding solutions related to automotive and Internet of Things (IoT) in the Indian subcontinent.
ISRO statement :: ISRO Chairman Dr. K. Sivan said that the “NavIC” is an important step in accelerating our thinking of using space technology in the development of the country. We are keen to make this system available for daily use and accessible to all. ISRO is pleased to collaborate with Qualcomm to bring ‘NavIC’ to the mobile platform. People will benefit from this.#su30 #su30mki #su27 #airforce #indianairforce #iaf #hal #combat #aircraft #vietnam #malaysia #defence #airstrike #balakot #kashmir #drdo #weaponry #indianarmy #Made_In_India #iaf #hal #bangalore #HTT40 #iaf #hal #s -400 - 3 hours ago
