Raytheon is building the ground stations for the GPS-Aided Geosynchronous Augmented Navigation (GAGAN) System, GAGAN System, which will provide satellite-based navigation for civil aviation over Indian airspace and adjoining areas in South and East Asia.
The Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) and Airports Authority of India (AAI) are providing the space segment, additional ground equipment, as well as participating in the integration and operating the system.
GAGAN will be the world’s most advanced air navigation system and further reinforces India’s leadership in the forefront of air navigation. It will greatly improve safety, reduce congestion and enhance communications to meet India’s growing air traffic management needs. The GAGAN solution addresses the four essential elements of safe air navigation: accuracy, integrity, availability and continuity.
