According to the civil aviation ministry Boeing 787 aircraft from GPS-aided GEO augmented navigation (GAGAN) augmentation system has exempted compliance till 2025.

GAGAN was created to help with navigation, both on the way and once you’ve landed. In order to ensure the safety of the passengers, it directs pilots to make precise runway landings. With more traffic and less demand for ground infrastructure, it aids the aviation sector in maintaining safety.

The Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) and the Airports Authority of India (AAI) jointly developed GAGAN, India’s own satellite-based augmentation system offer the best navigational services over the Indian FIR (Flight Information Region), with the ability to expand to neighbouring FIRs.

As a plane approaches the runway for a landing, GAGAN offers lateral and vertical guidance. It offers GPS signal adjustments, increasing the precision of one’s position.


GAGAN additionally corrects for timing, satellite orbit, and GPS signal faults brought on by ionospheric disturbances. Even crucial data about each satellite’s condition is provided.

By delivering notifications to those affected, it also aids during natural catastrophes like floods and earthquakes. Aside from improving aircraft safety, it is claimed that using the GAGAN system reduces flight delays and conserves fuel. The technique also makes it easier for aircraft to land at airports without expensive instrument landing systems, such as many tiny regional airports.

Boeing Transfers Rocket Stage to NASA, Paving Way for Human Moon Mission

Boeing Transfers Rocket Stage to NASA, Paving Way for Human Moon Mission

Boeing has achieved a significant milestone by providing NASA with the second core stage of the Space Launch System (SLS) rocket.

This crucial component, crafted at NASA’s Michoud Assembly Facility (MAF), is set to propel the Artemis II crew into lunar orbit, marking humanity’s return to deep space after a 50-year hiatus.

The monumental Boeing-built rocket stage, the largest element of the Artemis II mission, will embark on a journey aboard the Pegasus barge, traveling 900 miles to NASA’s Kennedy Space Center.

Upon arrival, it will be meticulously integrated with other essential Artemis II components, including the upper stage, solid rocket boosters, and NASA’s Orion spacecraft within the iconic Vehicle Assembly Building. This intricate integration process is a vital step toward the eagerly anticipated Artemis II launch, slated for 2025.


Boeing-built products helped land humankind on the moon in 1969, and we’re proud to continue that legacy through the Artemis generation,” remarked Dave Dutcher, vice president and program manager for Boeing’s SLS program. “Together, with NASA and our industry partners and suppliers, we are building the world’s most capable rocket and paving the way to deep space through America’s rocket factory in New Orleans.”

The delivery of Core Stage 2 marks a significant achievement in the evolution of the SLS rocket. Towering over 200 feet and powered by four RS-25 engines, this core stage, coupled with two solid-fueled booster rockets, will generate a staggering 8.8 million pounds of thrust. This immense power is crucial to launching Artemis II and future missions into the vast expanse of space.

The SLS rocket stands unparalleled in its capability to transport both crew and substantial cargo to the moon and beyond in a single launch. Its extraordinary capacity will facilitate the delivery of human-rated spacecraft, habitats, and scientific missions to destinations including the moon and Mars, ushering in a new era of space exploration.
