The MTSAT (Multi-functional Transport Satellites) Satellite Augmentation System (MSAS) is the Japanese Satellite Based Augmentation System (SBAS) System: a GPS Augmentation system with the goal of improving its accuracy, integrity, and availability.
First tests were accomplished successfully, and MSAS system for aviation use was declared operational in September 27, 2007, providing a service of horizontal guidance for En-route through Non-Precision Approach.
The SBAS signal used to be transmitted from MTSAT operated by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism (MLIT). The SBAS signal that is made by MLIT is now transmitted from the QZS-3 GEO satellite using the QZSS SBAS transmission service since April 2020.
