This thesis provides a basic understanding of nationwide terrestrial and satellite mobile communications and tracking technologies. Covered are systems currently available and in development. An analysis of user costs is performed for comparison. A more detailed mobile satellite cost/benefit analysis for use by the trucking industry is also presented. Follow-on chapters contain discussions of the basic economic issues faced by satellite system operators and the regulatory history of mobile satellite services. Contained in the appendices are a more detailed discussion of mobile satellite systems and a layman's explanation of communication and navigation technologies. The conclusion presents comments on the possible future direction of these new mobile communication services and makes recommendations for trucking industry use.
