  Syncom - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Syncom (for "synchronous communication satellite") started as a 1961 NASA program for active geosynchronous communication satellites, all of which were developed and manufactured by Hughes Space and Communications.
Syncom 1 was to be the first geosynchronous communications satellite.
These satellites were considerably larger than Syncoms 1 to 3, weighing 1.3 tonnes each (over 7 tonnes with launch fuel).

 Syncom
Syncom was a program of three experimental, active communication satellites which was started by NASA in 1961.
Syncom 1 was launched on February 14, 1963 with a launch vehicle Thor Delta #16 at Cape Canaveral and was lost on the way to geostationary orbit due to electronics failure.
Syncom 2 was the first geosynchronous communication satellite build by Hughes Aircraft Company[?]'s facility in Culver City, California and launched by NASA on July 26, 1963 with a launch vehicle Thor Delta #20 at Cape Canaveral.

 Syncom 1, 2, 3
Syncom 1 was designed to be the first test of a communication satellite in geosynchronous orbit.
Syncom 3 was launched from Cape Kennedy on 16 August 1964 and injected into an elliptical orbit inclined 16 degrees to the equator following a third stage yaw maneuver.
These maneuvers were completed by 23 September, and Syncom 3 was used in a variety of communications tests, including the transmission of the Olympics, transmissions between the Philippines, USNS Kingsport, and Camp Roberts, California, and teletype transmissions to an aircraft on the San Francisco-Honolulu route.

 Syncom
The first geostationary satellite was Syncom 3, launched to provide live daily TV coverage of the 1964 Tokyo Olympics which it did successfully.
The two functioning Syncoms were eventually handed over to the Department of Defense to provide reliable transpacific communications; Syncom 2 was “walked” along the equator using its control thrusters, until it had joined its sister on the other side of the globe.
Syncom was the descendant of Relay and Telstar and the immediate of more capable geostationary satellites such as Intelsat.

 Satellite - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
It was the English science fiction writer Arthur C. Clarke who conceived the possibility of artificial communication satellites in 1945 (facsimile at [1]) Clarke examined the logistics of satellite launch, possible orbits and other aspects of the creation of a network of world-circling satellites, pointing to the benefits of high-speed global communications.
The first artificial satellite was Sputnik 1 launched by Soviet Union on October 4, 1957.
On July 29, 1955, the White House announced that the U.S. intended to launch satellites by the spring of 1958.

The Syncom 2 orbit was inclined 33 degrees to the equator so that it appeared to move 33 degrees North and 33 degrees South in a figure 8 path over a 24 hour period as observed from the ground.
Syncom 1 was launched on February 14, 1963 into a nearly synchronous orbit, but failed during the apogee motor burn.
Syncom 2 was launched on July 26, 1963 after improvements in the nitrogen tank design were incorporated and it was a success.

Telstar 1 was launched on July 10, 1962 into a 514 x 3051-nautical-mile orbit by a Delta launch vehicle.
Syncom 1 suffered a propulsion failure and never reached proper orbit.
Syncom 3 was even more successful, and the U.S. Department of Defense also used it for experiments.

 Chapter 1: Experimental Satellites (cont.)
The Syncom satellite had a short cylindrical body that was spun about its axis to provide stabilization in orbit.
Syncom 2 was successfully launched in July 1963.
Like Syncom 1, it was not intended to achieve a stationary synchronous orbit because of the extra propellant weight and control complexity required to attain 0-deg inclination.

 chapter 6
Syncom 3 was different from its predecessor in other ways, notably in its orbital pattern.
Syncom 3 had a geostationary orbit, while the orbit of Syncom 2 was inclined thirty-three degrees to the equator, so that over a twenty-four-hour period, it appeared to move thirty-three degrees north and thirty-three degrees south in a "figure 8" pattern as observed from the ground.
Therefore, the advanced Syncom's objectives were broadened to include meteorology and other experiments, and the program became the ATS series.

 History of the Delta Launch Vehicle: Background and Development
Three months later, on 12 August, the Echo 1 reflight was a total success, as a 100-foot diameter aluminized mylar balloon [photo] inflated in orbit, providing a reflective surface so that two-way voice signals could be bounced from ground stations on the west and east coasts.
This new second stage was mounted to an 8-foot-diameter thrust structure which, along with a new 8-foot payload fairing, led to a nickname — the "Straight Eight" — that lasted until the Delta II with its bulbous fairing.
The Delta II has had only one total failure (and one partial failure, Koreasat-1) since its first launch in February 1989 — an incredible 99% success rate — and is currently in its longest streak ever of consecutive successes, with Delta 316 being the 67th success in a row.

For most of the applications its sufficient that the satellite is on a geosynchronous orbit, where the inclination is different to zero but the satellite is still moving once around the world in 24 hours.
The first satellite to reach such an orbit was Syncom 1, which was launched 1963 February 14.
Syncom 1 reached its geosynchronous orbit, but stayed silent because of an error in its electrical system.

 chapter 9
Although the Syncom communications capability was often disparaged as "only one voice-channel," it had one advantage over Relay and Telstar: the Syncom transponder could be used continuously, not just when the batteries were fully charged.
Syncom subsequently showed that geosynchronous orbit was attainable, but the satellite's light weight constrained the communications payload to a single telephone circuit, which was significantly less than the wideband capabilities of Relay and Telstar.
Syncom had been successful, and orbital and attitude control seemed to be much simpler than originally thought.
