The Virtual Geo System is a patented, highly innovative satellite system that effectively duplicates at higher latitudes the geostationary satellite arc located at the Earth’s equator. The orbital path of the satellites, which is elliptical, will bring the satellites closest to Earth – and at the highest speed - over Antarctica (at an altitude of about 1,000 kilometers) for the Northern Arc, and over the North Pole for the Southern arc. The slingshot action of the satellite rounding the Earth from the Poles brings the satellite to a steadily increasing altitude (maximum at about 27,000 kilometers) over the opposite hemisphere, and at a much lower speed, as the spacecraft enters into its “active”, or transmission orbital arc at 17,000 kilometers and through its apogee. The resulting effect is a near stationary downward beam over each hemisphere. As the satellite will have numerous electronically-steered and allocated spot beams, pointing and frequency reuse will be dynamically optimized. Similarly, tracking the satellite can be done with ease from a stationary electronically steered antenna on the ground with no moving parts, a technology that exists today.

Virtual Geo's patented architecture permits the creation of two "virtually geo-synchronous" arcs, over the Northern and Southern hemispheres each separated by at least 40º from the equator – away from the equatorial arc where geosynchronous satellites are located. Because of this angular separation, satellites in the virtual geo-synchronous arcs offer no interference to those in the geo-synchronous arc.
