A brief description of the NASA Applications Technology Satellite Program and the basic design features of the ATS-F and -G spacecraft, the latest in the series, is presented. The Applications Technology Satellites F and G will be geostationary platforms for conducting a number of communication technology experiments. The main feature of these spacecraft is a 30-foot parabolic deployable antenna which can be precisely pointed (0.1°). Descriptions of the technology experiments planned for ATS-F are included to illustrate some of the objectives of the ATS program.
