Feasibility Study to Use Commercial Geostationary Communications Satellites to Relay Data to the Earth from Low Earth Orbit Satellites

This study will explore the technical parameters and performance capabilities of various configurations of LEO satellite orbits and GEO communication satellite constellations and also identify the global regulatory issues associated with introducing this new type of communications service into the commercial satellite communications industry. A cost-benefit analysis will then examine these results to determine to what extent such a communications system is feasible.
