Standards Preparation For SOTM Terminals; The activity is a study to define a common way to specify and verify Satellite On The Move Terminals (SOTM). Currently SOTM terminals are not consistently specified, nor independently verified for a number of key performance criteria, specifically those related to pointing performance. Under these circumstances, it is difficult for service providers,satellite operators, and end users to clearly understand the capabilities of the product being offered without embarking on expensive and lengthy trials. For the SOTM market to continue to grow, obstacles preventing fast and fluid transactions need to be removed, and a clear understanding of product performance needs to be developed. This activity will help move the SOTM market away from thecharacteristics of a niche market and towards a more established, consumer and manufacturer friendly one.
