Definitions for "Geosynchronous"
see geostationary
An Earth satellite orbit in which the satellite remains in a fixed position over a geographic location on Earth.
(geostationary) orbit: An orbit located 22,300 miles above the earth’s equator. This orbit allows communications satellites to remain stationary above the intersection of a longitude with the equator on the earth. Because of this, earth stations can be permanently pointed at one location in the sky to continually transmit and receive information from a satellite.
