Background: RTCM Special Committees are chartered to address in-depth radio communication and radionavigation areas of concern to the RTCM membership. The output documents and reports prepared by these Committees are usually published as RTCM Standards. Special Committees are chaired by a subject expert, appointed from an RTCM member organization. The standards applying to DGNSS systems are the ones of data transmission standards defined by the Special Committee 104 on DGNSS. Among other subjects, RTCM SC104 develops international standards for augmentation of Global Navigation Satellite Systems including GPS (USA), GLONASS (Russia), Galileo (Europe), QZSS (Japan) and now the Chinese BeiDou system. The RTCM established Special Committee 104 on Differential NAVSTAR/GPS Service in November 1983 to address the methods to be used to provide differential GPS service and to develop standards for the data format. The standards applying to DGNSS systems are the ones of data transmission standards defined by the Special Committee 104 on DGNSS, some of which are employed in Safety of Life applications.

Japan-Australia Quasi-Zenith Satellite System (QZSS) Industry Utilisation Workshop: The Japan-Australia Quasi-Zenith Satellite System (QZSS) Industry Utilisation Workshop on 6 February will provide a forum to explore the potential applications of QZSS in Australia. The workshop is targeted to Australian industry and is open to all participants interested in satellite positioning business and technology. Japanese presenters will provide an update on QZSS and overview applications in agriculture, autonomous driving, traffic management and maritime etc. in Japan. Australian presenters will highlight potential use-cases for QZSS. The workshop will provide an opportunity to develop future collaboration and innovation between Australian and Japanese organisations and businesses using QZSS.

Japanese attendees will include industry representatives from the agriculture, road transport, maritime sectors as well as representatives from METI and other relevant government organisations. To register for the QZSS Workshop you must visit the JETRO website to enter your details:
