QZSS Safety Confirmation Service (Q-ANPI)

Discussions are underway for using the QZSS Safety Confirmation Service (Q-ANPI) to transmit evacuation shelter information to control stations and collect information via Quasi-Zenith Satellites (QZS) during times of disaster. Among the QZS, Q-ANPI can be used with satellites stationed on geostationary orbits (GEO). This service is available on S-band devices that support Q-ANPI. Please note that this service can only be used in Japan and its coastal areas.

During disasters, this service will send notices via satellites about the location and opening of evacuation shelters, number of evacuees, and circumstances at evacuation shelters. This information is essential for rescue operations, including comprehending the circumstances of the disaster and people who are isolated. Usage methods are also being considered to allow close relatives to search for individuals.
