TOWARDS MARITIME COMMUNICATIONS BY SATELLITE
Satellites for maritime communication will differ in a number of aspects from the now common point-to-point communications satellites, giving a new range of engineering problems to be solved. Compared to the present radio systems which are essentially manual, the new systems will be highly automated and in the years to come, should lead to fully automatic dialing between subscriber and ship for telephone and telex, and to a distress and safety service of very high reliability. As the advantages of maritime satellite communications are realized, an increasing number of vessels will be equipped with terminals.
