The primary mission of the Satellite Division is to serve U.S. consumers by promoting a competitive and innovative domestic and global telecommunications marketplace. The Division strives to achieve this goal by:

  1. Authorizing as many satellite systems as possible and as quickly as possible to facilitate deployment of satellite services;
  2. Minimizing regulation and maximizing flexibility for satellite telecommunications providers to meet customer needs;
  3. Fostering efficient use of the radio frequency spectrum and orbital resources. The Division also provides expertise about the commercial satellite industry in the domestic spectrum management process and advocates U.S. satellite radiocommunication interests in international coordinations and negotiations.
