“2009 Satellite Industry Directory”
Access Intelligence LLC
Publisher’s Web Site
Librarian’s Note: At a hefty 616 pages this is a nice directory for those interested in the satellite side of things. You know, the whole using space to benefit the Earth by entertaining and educating its peoples stuff. Extensive footprint maps show you where each satellite is targeted, with various specs, including expected lifetime. The main thing is the round-up of companies, from those who operate satellites in space, to those who broker the services, to those who provide the hardware and services. I may have to sic Eva on some of these folks for future EVA Interviews. If you’re more interested in who’s broadcasting what, there’s always the Satellite Transponder Guide.
