Abstract:
This paper will discuss the evolution of the communication satellite earth terminal from the standpoint of both user requirements and cost. It will start with the TELSTAR earth terminal and discuss the costs and structures of the early Intelsat and COMSAT earth terminals built in the 1960's. The paper will then trace the cost evolution to the 1970's with the introduction of Standard B and C terminals, 4.5 and 10 meter TVRO earth terminals; domestic earth terminals for communications and data in all parts of the world; and finally the new 56 K bps 5 meter terminals, the SBS terminals, and the direct-to-user terminals (TVRO) of the 1980's.
