“Project Overview of the QZSS”
In Japan, the QZSS, Quazi-zenith Satellite System project has started from 2012.
Many countries are developing and establishing satellite positioning systems. However, unlike the systems of other countries, Quasi-Zenith Satellite System, QZSS, transmits the same signals as GPS.
Accordingly, QZSS and GPS can be utilized as a single group of satellites.
For this reason, stable positioning is made possible, and highly precise location information can be obtained.
In this report, project overview and recent topics are described.
