Yups GPS will work with dedicated constellation.
Recently tri services wanted to have each satellites of their own, what i'm saying here is a constellation exclusively for indian ocean/arabian sea and china sea.
Doing it isnt exactly hard, harder is to make a navalized version.
If india can by any means field a 70% capable system as SM3 in next decade VOILA We are catching up US in their latest tech!.
US DDX only 2 will be build so far till 2010 mostly will be SM2 equipped algreaik burkhe class.
We can work with Russia if it is needed.
Anyways can someone tell me Barak II vertical range is 80 to 100 kms? or SAM locking range over horizontal?
If vertical then its awesome............then how much is horizontal?
