Proposed merge with IRNSS-1E[edit]

Recommend merging IRNSS-1E into this article along with the various other similar articles about the previous 4 satellites. There doesn't seem to be enough here to justify a stand alone article. Ad Orientem (talk) 03:41, 17 February 2014 (UTC)

Improve citations by using more references to ISRO's press releases[edit]

A lot of references point to news articles and third party websites. I suggest a lot more usage of ISRO's website links and press releases, since most of the information about IRNSS is already out there on their websites anyways, and since they're the authentic source of this information.

Incorrect Information[edit]

The article (first paragraph) states: "The requirement of such a navigation system is driven because access to foreign government-controlled global navigation satellite systems is not guaranteed in hostile situations, as happened to the Indian military depending on American GPS during the Kargil War.[2]"

The U.s. has never denied access to GPS signals to anyone, ever. The cited source (Times of India) is obviously incorrect. This story that America denied GPS to India is repeated many times on the internet, but there is no apparent original source for the story. InspectorVijay (talk) 13:03, 6 October 2015 (UTC)

Is schedule slippage notable for Indian space systems? Hcobb (talk) 17:49, 23 October 2015 (UTC)

Real time tracking.[edit]

stuffin.space has a wonderful tool for real time tracking of all space objects. It can track all the satellites simultaneously. http://stuffin.space/?search=IRNSS adding the link to the article Akash (talk) 13:50, 8 June 2016 (UTC)

Multiple wikilinks removal[edit]

Hi, can you please explain why you remove wikilink from Indian Regional Navigation Satellite System page? [1] here. Thanks Spartacus! t@lk 15:15, 5 August 2016 (UTC)

As explained in the edit summary: because of MOS:LINK. fgnievinski (talk) 15:18, 5 August 2016 (UTC)
