Satellite can track many remote machines with dynamic IP addresses in situations where public DNS services are inappropriate. It can log and alert an admin immediately when a site moves around, comes online, or needs attention.
A natural or artificial object in orbit around another body. For examples, the Moon is the largest natural satellite of the Earth, and the planets are satellites of the Sun. In addition, there are satellite galaxies that orbit the Milky Way.
A specialised wireless receiver/transmitter launched by a rocket and placed in earth's orbit. They are used for diverse purposes such as weather forecasting, television broadcast, amateur radio communications, Internet communications and the global positioning system
Short hand for artificial satellite (the moon is a natural satellite). Usually refers to an electronic radio communications repeater orbiting above the earth. However, other applications are involved such as earth observation systems, signals intelligence gathering spacecraft and so on.
(1) This is any body of matter orbiting another body (like our Moon). (2) Regarding the telecommunications industry, it is a device with the purpose of receiving and relaying electronic communications. Satellites in geosynchronous orbit (also known as the Clarke orbit) are 22,237 miles above the equator, and orbiting at this height allows them to move at the same speed and in the same direction as the Earth's rotation.
an electronics retransmission device serving as a repeater, normally placed in orbit around the earth in geostationary orbit for the purpose of receiving and retransmitting electromagnetic signals. It normally recedes signals from a single source and retransmits them over a wide geographic area, known as the satellite's "footprint."
A body that revolves around another body like a Saturn's moon Titan revolving around Saturn; or a man-made object revolving around a body, like Explorer 1 orbiting Earth. We call the moons of planets satellites instead of moons so as not to confuse them with the Earth's Moon.
An orbiting space vehicle containing a set of transponders that retransmit television broadcast signals back to earth receivers. A TV station licensed to rebroadcast the programming of a parent station.
Electronic device or platform, self sustained, which orbit the earth with an orbit of approximately 22,000 miles. Communications satellites transmit / receive signals in the microwave range; some uses are broadcast TV, telecommunications, global positioning.
Synchronous communications satellite orbiting earth from a stationary position 22,300 miles above the equator and transmitting television and other signals. Satellite Master Antenna Television (SMATV) – A SMATV usually serves a housing complex or hotel. Here the television signals are received via satellite and over the air broadcast stations and distributed to the units by coaxial cable. Households may be charged a fee for maintenance of a SMATV.
A satellite is any smaller object that orbits another larger object. Satellites of the Earth are both natural (such as the moon) and artificial (such as communications satellites). Satellites and Orbits
A radio relay station that orbits the earth. A complete satellite communications system also includes earth stations that communicate with each other via the satellite. The satellite receives a signal transmitted by an originating earth station and retransmits that signal to the destination earth station(s). Satellites are used to transmit telephone, television and data signals originated by common carriers, broadcasters and distributors of cable TV program material.
In its most general sense, an object in orbit around a planet. In the sense most commonly used at the South Pole (THE satellite), it refers to one of a very few once-geostationary satellites that have strayed sufficiently far from their orbits to be visible from the South Pole. (Strictly geostationary satellites cannot be seen from either Pole.) When the satellite is "up" (ie, above the horizon), internet and email communication with the Pole is possible. When it's not, the only communication with the outside world is via HF SSB radio or, for the first time this summer, by Iridium phone.
Satellites are communication devices used in the broadcasting of radio, television, computer data, and the latest technology global positioning. Satellites are in orbit 22,300 miles (35,786 km) above mean sea level, positioned over the equator, and encircling the earth. This precise distance from earth places them in a Geostationary Orbit, meaning the satellites rotate at the same speed as the earth and thus appear to be stationary. Satellites receive and retransmit electromagnetic signals.
A wireless communication device that orbits Earth and relays video, voice, paging, data, or fax messages from originating ground stations to other ground stations, which then forward the messages to recipients. Certain technologies, such as DirecPC use satellites to deliver high speed connections to the Internet.
Programming that comes directly to the home after being transmitted from a satellite orbiting the earth. The signal is initially sent by the transmitting company from an earth station. A satellite dish receives the signal at the home, and the signal then moves via cable to the TV set.
Electronic communications relay station orbiting 22,237 miles about the equator, moving in a fixed orbit at the same speed and direction as Earth (about 7,000 mph east to west). Satellites relay audio/video signal to your receiver, where information is descrambled and converted.
platform launched into close orbit around the Earth and used to carry electronic equipment that transmits information back to Earth. Some satellites are used to transmit pictures of the Earth from space back to Earth for remote sensing applications. The GPS uses 24 satellites that were made and launched specifically for transmitting signals to GPS receivers on Earth.
An internet connection provided by sattellite in orbit around the Earth. Satellite internet technology has advanced in leaps and bounds over the years. Where you used to need a phone line for "half" of your internet connection, most satellite internet services is now bi-directional (data is sent and received via satellite)
An earth-orbiting device used for receiving and transmitting signals. Each satellite has a number of transponders which receive the signal and bounce it back to earth, where it is received by any of the dish-shaped earth stations, then transmitted via cable, phone lines, or microwave to its final receiver TV set.
A geostationary satellite is an electronic relay station orbiting 22,237 miles above the equator, moving in a fixed orbit at the same speed and direction of the earth, about 7,000 miles per hour east to west.
It is possible to get Internet access via low level orbiting satellites, like those that provide TV services. You get a Satellite connection for your internet service, but you also need a dial-up modem to use the service. To view websites or send email you need to send a request to that server to send you the information and to send information you typically need to use dial-up service with a satellite Internet service and is considered high speed or broadband Internet access. Latency is also very high.
Equipment in orbit that can transmit signals between station and distributor) or (distributor and homeowner); the signals can be analog or digital; each satellite usually has the capacity to transmit a number of different signals simultaneously.
A sophisticated spacecraft incorporating an electronic communications relay station. A communications satellite receives radio signals from earth stations and retransmits them to other earth stations at distant locations.
Any object that orbits a celestial body, such as a moon. However, the term is often used in reference to the manufactured objects that orbit the earth, either in a geostationary or a polar manner. Some of the information that is gathered by weather satellites, such as GOES9, includes upper air temperatures and humidity, recording the temperatures of cloud tops, land, and ocean, monitoring the movement of clouds to determine upper level wind speeds, tracing the movement of water vapor, monitoring the sun and solar activity, and relaying data from weather instruments around the world.
An attendant body revolving around a larger one, its primary. The Moon is a satellite of the Earth, but for historical reasons is called in astrology a planet (wanderer), as is the Sun. Astronomically, all planets in our solar system are satellites of the Sun.
A satellite is any object that orbits another object (which is known as its primary). Satellites can be man-made or may be naturally occurring such as moons, comets, asteroids, planets, stars, and even galaxies.
(Also: Feeder) Satellite refers to a tournament in which the winner or winners receive a seat at another tournament instead of a cash prize. Satellites are popular because they provide players with the chance to compete in major, high stakes tournaments by winning a tournament with a much lower buy-in. Back To
A mini-tournament which, if won, gives you entry into a larger tournament. A WSOP buy-in is $10,000 but you can qualify for the worldâ€™s biggest poker tournament through satellites which cost less than $100.
A tournament in which the winner receives an entry into a bigger tournament, rather than cash. Special tournament buy-in chips are awarded to the winner, that have no cash value. A single table satellite is the most common form, in which 8 to 10 players play winner-take-all. A super-satellite is a multi-table freezout satellite, sometimes with rebuys, where more than one of the top places will win a tournament entry and/or cash.
Satellite is the fourth studio album, and the second major label studio release by rap metal quartet P.O.D.. The album was released on September 11, 2001. The album debuted at No. 6 on the Billboard Top 200 chart with over 133,000 copies sold and went on to sell over 3 million copies in the US, making it the band's top-selling album.
Satellite was the fifth and final single off of the Dave Matthews Band LP Under the Table and Dreaming. It reached #18 on the Modern Rock Tracks chart. The song originally debuted on their album Remember Two Things.
Familiar to most people through the spread of satellite-delivered television services. Satellite transmitters have wide geographic footprints - they can reach most parts of the UK, failing only where mountains or other obstacles block the signal. Satellite broadband is particularly relevant to users who operate outside the range of ADSL or cable.
Satellite communications are becoming increasingly important for conquering distance and enabling location independent working. Digital transmission of data via low-level satellites is set to increase the importance of satellites for remote and mobile ICT. SET – Secure Electronic Transaction – SET is the standard for e-commerce backed by Mastercard and Visa. Its high security design makes it safer than physically using a credit card, although the attendant intricacies have slowed its rollout. It may be usurped by less secure alternatives.
Usually used in discussions of sexual selection in regards to advertisement behaviors (generally by males). The classical example is from acoustic signaling where satellites are individuals who remain silent but take up a positions (usually hidden) near an actively advertising individual. They attempt to intercept females that approach the caller. Thus, they do not pay as large a cost as do the advertisers. Satelliting may be an evolutionarily stable strategy (where at some frequency it produces the same lifetime reproductive success as alternative strategies such as advertisement) or a simple contingent behavior induced by, for example, poor physiological state.
A type of tiered cake in which several separate cakes form the base, with another layer of separate cakes placed above via columns. This creates a sort of pyramid effect and allows for more layers than a simple tiered cake.
