 Synonyms & Historicals
Satellite Applications .
The use of satellite technology for the purpose of communications or data transmission for monitoring, warning and dissemination of information pertinent to emergency response and/or disaster management (Material II - IDNDR, 1992) .
Satellite .
An object that orbits around a larger one. Artificial satellites orbiting the earth are now used for communications, monitoring weather, gathering hydrological, agricultural, seismological and other similar data and observing environmental phenomena. Also used for military purposes. (Material V - Gunn, S.W.A. Multilingual Dictionary of Disaster Medicine and International Relief, 1990) .

Satellite DNA .
Highly repetitive DNA sequences found in HETEROCHROMATIN, mainly near centromeres. They are composed of simple sequences (very short) (see MINISATELLITE REPEATS) repeated in tandem many times to form large blocks of sequence. Additionally, following the accumulation of mutations, these blocks of repeats have been repeated in tandem themselves. The degree of repetition is on the order of 1000 to 10 million at each locus. Loci are few, usually one or two per chromosome. They were called satellites since in density gradients, they often sediment as distinct, satellite bands separate from the bulk of genomic DNA owing to a distinct BASE COMPOSITION. .
