low earth orbit
Jump to user comments
communications (LEO) The kind of orbit used by
communications satellites that will offer high bandwidth for
video on demand, television, and Internet communications.
A satellite in LEO, in contrast to one in a geostationaryorbit, is not in a fixed position relative to the Earth's
surface so several satellites are required to provide
continuous service.
