Abstract

This publication describes the collective physi- cal packaging design of a low cost tracking antenna suitable for ground use to communicate with a non- geostationary satellite system. With a proliferation of non-geostationary satellite communications sys- tems currently being proposed and funded in today's global telecommunications market, there is ample evidence that a low cost tracking terminal could rep- resent a very lucrative product line for its maker.
