Government officials said once it is ready, the MTSAT will be launched into a stationary orbit
above the equator, as was the Himawari 5.
The cost of sending the signal via satellite in stationary orbit
over Ireland is $1.3m per year.
The satellite should have been located in a stationary orbit
23,000 miles above central Africa.
Clarke published a remarkable paper in Wireless World entitled "Extraterrestrial Relays." In his prophetic work, Clarke described a microwave communications system based upon the use of three satellites in stationary orbit
over the earth.
A video and models will also demonstrate the company's various technologies for realizing a base on the moon and its Space Solar Power System (SSPS) concept, whereby energy will be generated by solar power using huge solar cells placed in stationary orbit
around the Earth, and transmitted to Earth by microwave/laser technology.
Meanwhile, over a four-day period the DRTS will switch from an elliptical orbit to a stationary orbit
at 36,000 km above the Indian Ocean.
He said the satellite is being moved from geo synchronous transfer orbit to geo stationary orbit
at 36000 kms.
