PERFORMANCE OF THE MARISAT COMMUNICATIONS SYSTEM

Developments leading to the launching and deployment of the MARISAT satellite are reported. It is argued that although the initial communications capability of MARISAT has been directed to the provision of telex and voice grade services (including facsimile and data at rates of up to 2400 bps), it is likely that in the very near future provision will be incorporated for ship-to-shore data transmission at rates as high as 56 kbps. Past performance is described.
