LEO – Low Earth Orbit

Satellites which are located between 700km and 1500km are said to be operating in a Low Earth Orbit. These satellites are travelling faster than the earth is rotating and as such are moving relative to the earth. An example of a satellite system operating within a Low Earth Orbit is Iridium.
