QZS-3 (MICHIBIKI-3) is a Japanese satellite designed to be part of a constellation of navigation aids to improve positioning services across the country. Michibiki means 'guiding' or 'showing the way' in Japanese. Built by Mitsubishi Electric, the navigation craft joins two similar satellites launched on H-2A rockets in September 2010 and in June of this year. Those previous spacecraft circle Earth in orbits tilted at an angle to the equator, causing them to oscillate north and south, but remain always fixed over the Asia-Pacific region.
