India’s “GPS”


India has decided that it will have its own “GPS” type system:

India to have its own satellite-based navigation system
AIT – August 13, 2010

India will no more rely on the foreign GPS signals.  The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) plans to launch seven Indian satellites in the next five years.

India to launch satellite-based navigation system GAGAN
Hindustan Times – Aug 9, 2010
A satellite-based navigation system to aid air traffic from Southeast Asia to Africa, including over the high seas in the vast region, would be launched tomorrow, placing India into a select group of nations which possess such a sophisticated technology. GAGAN or the GPS Aided Geo Augmented Navigation…

By 2011 India is going to have the world’s most sophisticated satellite based air navigation system; benefiting both civilian and military aircraft. With about 24 satellites devoted to GAGAN, it will cover areas up to central Africa, middle-east, Australia, eastern Europe and China.”

GAGAN fills a long felt need in India’s space and satellite capabilities. Attempts to be part of systems like the Russian Glonass or the European Space agency’s Galileo have failed due to concerns over absence of military firewalling. These systems are partly controlled by defence agencies of foreign nations. Now the enhanced signals will give India an entry to a vital sector.” Times of India April 12, 2010

India is now demonstrating that it intends to be a first-rate global player.

This is a major move as only the USA, Russia, and China have their own systems.  Europe is developing a sophisticated one (Galileo) that may contribute to the destruction of the USA (see USA GPS and EU Galileo linking was expected).

And while India’s system may not be totally independent, this is a significant move and demonstrates India’s increasing wealth, technological advances, and desire to come out from out-of-the-shadows so to speak.

Bible prophecy suggests that India is probably one of the end time “kings of the east” (Revelation 16:12) and is expected to thus be part of an end time military confederation.  India seems to continue to make moves in that direction as Bible prophecy moves forward.
