Housed in a 19-inch rack-mount enclosure with AC power supply and integral cooling fans, the G-III reference receiver platform has been customized to meet the needs of individual satellite networks. In addition to the QZSS G-III product, NovAtel supplies U.S. Wide Area Augmentation System (WAAS) G-III reference receivers to the Federal Aviation Administration and IRNSS G-III reference receivers for the ground control segment of the Indian Regional Navigation Satellite System (IRNSS).
 
In 2013, NEC Corporation received the contract to build the QZSS ground control system.
