The advanced navigation satellites GSLV-F12 and NVS-01 of the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) were successfully launched from Sriharikota on Monday.

The Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota, Andhra Pradesh, served as the launch site. The first of India’s second-generation NavIC satellites, with improved functionality, is called NVS-01.

After 19 minutes of flight, the satellite was put into a geosynchronous transfer orbit, according to a tweet from ISRO.

“The NVS-O1 satellite was precisely injected into a Geosynchronous Transfer Orbit after a journey of around 19 minutes. NVS-01 will be placed into the planned Geosynchronous orbit by further orbit-raising efforts,” according to ISRO.
