Department of State (DoS)
DoS served as the lead agency for U.S. delegations at meetings of the INTELSAT and INMARSAT member country governments and provided relevant policy guidance to Comsat, the U.S. signatory organization. In addition, DoS played an active role in interagency discussions to develop U.S. positions on INTELSAT and INMARSAT restructuring and to promote them internationally. DoS also promoted access to overseas markets for commercial satellite companies and worked to resolve complex problems of orbit and spectrum availability.
