The MTSAT Satellite Augmentation System (MSAS) is the Japanese Satellite Based Augmentation System (SBAS) System:[1] a GPS Augmentation system with the goal of improving its accuracy, integrity, and availability, and that uses the Multifunctional Transport Satellites (MTSAT) owned and operated by the Japanese Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport and the Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA).

MSAS is intended to provide a navigation system for all phases of flight through precision approach to any airport within its coverage area. First tests were accomplished successfully, and MSAS system for aviation use was declared operational in September 27, 2007,[2][3] providing a service of horizontal guidance for En-route through Non-Precision Approach.[1][2][4]
