Australia-Japan Heads Discuss Geospatial Information Project

Australia Prime Minister Tony Abbott and Japan Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in their joint statement stated that both the countries aim to strengthen cooperation in the areas of space and Information and Communications Technology (ICT), establish an official ICT policy dialogue, and strengthen cooperation for the promotion of geospatial information project using the Japanese Quasi Zenith Satellite System (QZSS).

The Quasi-Zenith Satellite System (QZSS) is a Japanese regional satellite navigation system developed by the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA). The aim of QZSS is to enhance the current availability and performance of GNSS typically over Japan, and also covers parts of Australia.

Currently, Cooperative Research Centre for Spatial Information (CRCSI) and JAXA are conducting a research with the aim to assess the feasibility of utilising the QZSSLEX signal to deliver a high accuracy real-time Precise Point Positioning (PPP) service to the Australian GNSS users.
