6). 40 The development of satellite communications FDMA can be used with digital transmissions just as with analogue transmissions. However, the ease with which digital signals can be stored and manipulated makes it practicable for a number of earth stations to use the same frequency by interpolating their transmissions in time; this is timedivision multiple access (TDMA). 1 SPADE and DA The first commercial digital communications-satellite system was SPADE, which was brought into service by INTELSAT in 1971.

5 The development of satellite communications INTELSAT VA The main difference between INTELSAT V and INTELSAT VA satellites is the addition to the latter of down-path spot-beam antennas working at 4 GHz; these antennas use the same reflectors as the 14/11 GHz spot-beam antennas and produce beams with a diameter of about 5°. e. about 3000 channels greater than that of an INTELSAT V satellite. 6 INTELSATVB INTELSAT VB satellites are a variation of INTELSAT V intended to be particularly suitable for the provision of business services.

About 7000 ships are already fitted with MARISAT/INMARSAT Standard-A ship earth stations (SESs); this type of SES can provide a wide range of telephony, telegraphy and data services but the equipment is relatively complex and expensive, and can be difficult to install. By 1990 INMARSAT will be operating a store-and-forward data service; the Standard-C SESs required for this service will be only a fraction of the cost of a Standard-A station and very much smaller, and it is expected that many tens of thousands of these stations will be installed in the early 1990s.
