Article 1 Scope of application
Article 2 Outline
The Website is a website that provides technical operation information for the satellites of the Company for the purpose of improving convenience for Users. When using the satellites of the Company, User may, at no charge, download necessary information from the Website. The information able to be downloaded from the Website at no charge is as set out below. The Company may add or amend the information able to be downloaded from the Website, without giving any prior notice.
(1) Downloading satellite positioning information (COB)
COB (Center of Box) means the time period in which a satellite is forecast to be located within a range that can be deemed its nominal orbital position (a range of up to a +/-0.01 degree deviation in latitude and longitude from the nominal orbital position). The main purpose of COB is to ascertain the optimal time period for satellite capture, and ground stations without automatic tracking functions use COB to perform satellite capture.
Pursuant to the Company’s satellite operational plan, the update frequency of satellite position information differs for each satellite. It is User’s responsibility to periodically confirm whether any update information is available for any satellites used.
User may make inquiries with Company from the Website regarding the Website or downloaded information.
