The Application of Satellites to International Interactive Service Support Communication.
Bystrom, J. W.
PEACESAT (Pan-Pacific Education and Communication Experiment by Satellite) is a demonstration project initiated in 1971. Its objective is to study the benefits arising from direct conference communications between groups with common interests in widely separated nations of the Pacific. Cooperating institutions are linked by low cost, self-contained radio terminals and a communication satellite relay. Each station is able to communicate simply and easily with all others and send and receive voice and facsimile signals. Teletype and slow scan television experiments are also planned. This experimental network is available for use by persons and institutions engaged in research, education, health, and other community services. (Author)
