Satellite Communications Equipment
Manufacturers & Services
A communications satellite (sometimes abbreviated to SATCOM) is an artificial satellite stationed in space for the
purposes of telecommunications. Modern communications satellites use a variety of orbits including geostationary
orbits, Molniya orbits, other elliptical orbits and low (polar and non-polar) Earth orbits.
(point-to-point) services, communications satellites provide a microwave radio relay technology complementary to
that of submarine communication cables. They are also used for mobile applications such as communications to
ships, vehicles, planes and hand-held terminals, and for TV and radio broadcasting, for which application of other
technologies, such as cable, is impractical or impossible. -Wikipedia
