AN/FSC-9

The AN/FSC-9 terminals have been used since the earliest days of military SATCOM. Two of these terminals were built and much of the research leading to the development of all present SATCOM systems (commercial and military) was conducted using these two terminals. The AN/FSC-9 terminal at Camp Roberts, California, is the only AN/FSC-9 terminal in operation and provides communications via satellite from the Pacific area to the continental United States (CONUS).
