Developed by the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO), NavIC consists of a constellation of seven satellites in orbit and a ground control segment that manages the system's operations. This paper provides an overview of NavIC, its history, architecture, and capabilities. The paper also discusses the potential applications of NavIC in various sectors, including transportation, agriculture, disaster management, and defense. Finally, the paper examines the challenges and opportunities for NavIC and its future development.
