COMSAT Mobile Communications is upgrading its Southbury, Conn., coast earth station to provide communications access to a second INMARSAT satellite over the Atlantic Ocean that will offer maritime, aeronautical and international land-mobile customers coverage in a fourth ocean region planned for the fourth quarter of 1990.
Ron Mario, vice president and general manager, COMSAT Mobile Communications, explained that the new INMARSAT fourth ocean region will be created by dividing the existing single Atlantic Ocean Region (AOR) into two regions, Atlantic Ocean Region-East and Atlantic Ocean Region-West, while the Pacific and Indian Ocean Regions remain the same.
The short-term reason for the expanded coverage, according to Mr.
Mario, is to relieve congestion in the INMARSAT satellite system until its second-generation satellites are launched in late 1990 and 1991.
From a longer-term perspective, this will allow complete global coverage for COMSAT services by closing a small coverage gap which exists in the current INMARSAT three-ocean region satellite configuration.
"The level of communications traffic in the Atlantic Ocean region is double that of the Pacific and Indian Ocean regions. When COMSAT begins operating in both Atlantic Ocean regions, it will effectively add and estimated 50 percent to available capacity, relative to the capacity of the single Marecs satellite," he said. The cost of upgrading the Southbury facility is approximately $2 million, according to Mr.
COMSAT Mobile Communications, based in Washington, D.C., provides maritime, aeronautical, and international land mobile satellite communications to customers around the world through its INMARSAT coast earth stations, located in Southbury, Conn., and Santa Paula, Calif. COMSAT represents the U.S. in the 59-member International Maritime Satellite Organization (INTELSAT).

the current satellite for that region, the MCS-B, which is leased from INTELSAT. "The importance of this launch for COMSAT and its customers," said Ron Mario, vice president and general manager for COMSAT Mobile Communications, "is that it adds significant capacity to the Atlantic Ocean region, which
