India on Wednesday successfully launched its fifth navigation satellite, IRNSS-1E, onboard the workhorse PSLV-C31 in Sriharikota, taking another step to be on par with the US-based Global Positioning System (GPS).

IRNSS-1E is the fifth navigation satellite in the IRNSS space system, comprising seven satellites, which will be on par with the GPS once the full complement of spacecraft is launched.
