Abstract:
This paper traces over the last five years the revolution in DOMSAT terminals from the one million dollar 11 meter INTELSAT B stations to the six thousand dollar 2 meter Small Aperture Terminals (SATs) being used by Broadcast and Wire Services to distribute network programming and wire service directly to the local radio station or newspaper. The key systems architecture, technologies and market conditions that have made this revolution in receive-only earth stations possible are detailed.
