Re: Light dead satellite
said by Pakapab:SkyTerra 1 was designed for satellite data service to ground users. It has a huge reflector, which reduces antenna size and power consumption in mobile handsets.
I'd still like to know what they are gonna do with that big ass satellite up there.
It also has the ability to point up to 500 spot beams at North and South America, allowing reuse of frequency/bandwidth among users that are geographically separated.
