SATELLITES SYSTEMS AS A MANAGEMENT AND SAFETY AID FOR THE MARITIME TRANSPORTATION INDUSTRY

The initial satellite service will provide voice, teletype, data and graphics transmissions on a strictly disciplined systems access basis between shore stations and all classes of vessels at an average daily cost per ship of ten dollars. In the frequency band between 300 and 500 MHz, services can be provided for minimum user equipment complexity and cost, minimum user antenna gain and transmitter power and minimum system rf bandwidth.
