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. |
For fixed (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

Satellite Communications Books
For your convenience, I have built a set of pages with hand-selected companies. My policy is to
only list companies that actually manufacture product or offer services related to the page title
subject. Product distributors and sales representatives are not listed (they have their own page).
This helps guarantee that each listing offers a unique product or service.
