It will enter mass production in India and can be used in Automotive- vehicle tracking system/ asset tracking/ wearable tracking/ fleet management/mobile phone/ railways/defence/ marine.
Commenting on the launch of UTRAQ, Managing Director, Rama Krishna Electro Pvt. Ltd. (REC), Mr. Shivang Luthra said:
This will change the way of conventional tracking that is done in the past. We are providing customers with various features of working with L5(IRNSS) band and L1 (GPS and GNSS) band. Major change we are anticipating is that the VTS industry will be changing their designs as in the coming year it will be mandatory from GOI to use IRNSS device.
