The ground segment terminals consist of three basic types: • fixed (in-place) terminals; • transportable terminals; • mobile terminals. Fixed terminals are designed to access the satellite while fixed in-place on the ground. They may be providing different types of services, but they are defined by the fact that they are not moving while communicating with the satellite. Examples of fixed terminals are small terminals used in private networks (VSATs), or terminals mounted on residence buildings used to receive broadcast satellite signals.

The GSO location provides a fixed path from the ground to the satellite; therefore little or no ground tracking is required. A satellite in GSO sees about one-third of the earth’s surface, so three GSO satellites, placed 120◦ apart in the equatorial plane, could provide global coverage, except for the pole areas (to be discussed further later). 7 GSO – Geosynchronous earth orbit The period of revolution for the geostationary orbit is 23 hours, 56 minutes, which is the time for the earth to complete one revolution about its axis, measured relative to the star field reference (sidereal time).
