However, he said the country still needs to catch up with the top developers of communications satellites
in the United States and Europe, such as Boeing and Thales Alenia Space, when it comes to satellite technology and capacity.
The next private launch, likely toward the end of the month, will launch more communications satellites
for both SES and EchoStar.
This innovative propulsion system is more efficient and smaller compared with chemical propulsion systems, used by most communications satellites
NTV) will enter the digital broadcasting field by using an advanced communications satellite
to be launched in August, NTV President Seiichiro Ujiie said Friday.
Five years ago, communications satellites
primarily provided stationary voice and TV broadcast services.
Thanks to Telstar I and to the numerous communications satellites
that followed, it became possible to communicate easily, and in seconds, across continents and oceans.
From there early beginnings just two decades ago, communications satellites
have revolutionized world communications in three major areas: worldwide communications, largely through the Intelsat system; domestic communications, especially in the United States; and Third world communications, facilitating a quantum jump from rudimentry communications to sophisticated systems.
Orbital is the world leader in the market for smaller, more affordable GEO communications satellites
The newly branded company will display some of its latest products and solutions for the military and commercial satellite communications sectors, ranging from secure band services and connectivity solutions to telecommunications and commercial communications satellites
In December, another Ariane is to deploy a pair of communications satellites
for customers in France and the United States.
Earlier, Israel has had three communications satellites
sent into space, the last being the AMOS-3, launched from Kazakhstan in 2008, also on a Zenit.
Orbital is one of the leading suppliers of GEO communications satellites
, which are based on the STAR family of smaller GEO satellite platforms and are capable of accommodating most types of commercial communications payloads.
Before servicing Syncom 3, Discovery's crew had already deployed three other communications satellites
, including Australia's first, AUSSAT-1, and a fourth Syncom.
4 platform, which can generate nearly five kilowatts of payload power, making them the most powerful commercial communications satellites
that Orbital has produced.
Communications Law and Practice offers clear explanations of the laws regulating telephony, including cellular telephone advances; radio and television broadcasting; and wireless communications and communications satellites
