Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. in collaboration with the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), has developed & tested chip-set platform across their portfolio which can support the Indian regional Navigation satellite system, NavIC. The initiative will help accelerate the adoption of NavIC and enhance the geo-location capabilities of mobile, automotive and the Internet of Things (IoT) solutions in the region, with the backing of Qualcomm Technologies’ engineering talent based in India. The first-ever NavIC demonstration using the Snapdragon Mobile Platforms is expected to be showcased by Qualcomm during the India Mobile Congress at New Delhi on October 14-16.

Chairman ISRO expressed that “NavIC is a critical step forward in our pursuit of harnessing space technology for national development and we are eager to make it accessible to everyone for their day to day use. ISRO is very happy to work with Qualcomm to enable NavIC on Mobile platforms. Qualcomm’s technology leadership and support for NavIC on their mobile platforms will bring the benefits of this indigenous solution to every Indian. ISRO appreciates Qualcomm for enabling the technology demonstration of NavIC support on mobile platform for the very first time”.

Support for NavIC will be available in Qualcomm Technologies platforms for OEMs to leverage starting from Nov 2019.
