Satellite Transmission

A satellite is any object that goes around a planet in a circular or oval path. The moon is Earth’s natural satellite at a distance of 240,000 miles. Other satellites that meet this definition are human-made and have been launched into space to do specific tasks.

A communication satellite (sometimes shortened to COMSAT) is an artificial satellite in space for telecommunications.

Features of Satellite

  1. It boosts worldwide information transmission.
  2. It offers telephone and television communication to different countries.
  3. It enables live broadcasts of significant events, like World Cup matches and Olympic games.
  4. It allows instant communication of events and information.

Advantages of Satellite Communication

  1. Satellite coverage greatly exceeds precision.
  2. Satellite transmission costs are independent of the distance from the coverage center.
