Industry Report - Industry Products Chapter

A number of different types of satellites exist, and they are classified depending on the altitude at which they orbit the Earth. The majority of satellites are placed in low Earth orbits (LEOs), moving between 200 and 2,000 kilometres above the Earth. On average, they make one revolution of Earth every 90 minutes. Medium Earth orbit satellites travel at an altitude between 2,000 and 35,000 kilometres. Geostationary Earth orbit (GEO) satellites perform a circular orbit of the Earth at an altitude of 36,000 kilometres while remaining above a single point on the Earth's surface. Satellite services can also be classified as either fixed satellite services (FSS) or mobile satellite services (MSS), depending on the type of Earth station used to receive the signal.
