INDIA’s Own GPS Soon Will Be Reality With the Launch Of Vehicle Tracking Module

 

The Indian semiconductor distribution company, Ramakrishna Electro Component Pvt Ltd Group (REC) has launched VTS (Vehicle Tracking System), under UTRAQ brand, which is one of kind Module that will run on Indian Satellite. UTRAQ is an endeavor to replace the currently in use GPS application that is working on US Satellites. UTRAQ is owned by Ramakrishna Electro Component & manufactured by Shanghai Mobiletek.

 

The company’s Utraq brand which is manufactured by Shanghai Mobiletek is an endeavour to provide an alternative to the Indian customers from the currently used GPS application that is working on US Satellites.

 

Two Utraq models L100 and L110 were launched and according to the company officials, they are planning to start mass production of the products soon in India under ‘Make In India’ programme.

 

UTRAQ modules can be used for marine, aerial, terrestrial navigations. These modules can also be used for vehicle tracking and  Geodetic data capture among others.

 

The ‘desi’ VTS module concept was first initiated for services and devices soon after tge Kargil War in 1999. The VTS module which is a part of IRNSS was pushed for when Pakistan troops took positions in Kargil. India, then asked for the GPS location data that was being handled by the US satellites. US refused to help India during the war situation. The GPS-based data by the US would’ve given some vital information, helping India manage the situation and control the damage.

 

UTRAQ’s launch will help ISRO systems will be able to provide accurate data without any dependency on foreign satellites. IRNSS is also said to provide the positioning for the Indian region 1500km around the Indian mainland as the primary service area. The extended service area of IRNSS would lie between the primary service area and the area enclosed inside the Latitude 300 South to 500 North and Longitude 300 East to 1300 East.
