Satellite terminals and equipment company Satellite Transmission Systems Inc of Hauppauge, New York has won a $3.4m US government satellite earthstation contract: the California Microwave Inc subsidiary says it has previously built and installed over 200 major earthstations worldwide, notably the 32-metre Intelsat Standard A station that was used to broadcast the 1988 Summer Olympics from Seoul, South Korea. Apollo Computer Inc is off on the offensive with an aggressive – Americans must learn that that word does not play well and is an emphatic pejorative associated only with football hooligans and other undesirables on this side of the Atlantic – Series 10000 Challenge campaign aimed at highlighting the Apollo Personal Supercomputer’s lead in standard performance ratings in head-to-head comparisons with leading competitive systems: Apollo is inviting Sun 4/260 and VAX 8800 users to take on the challenge at sites on the East Coast – at Apollo corporate headquarters – and the West Coast at Apollo’s Santa Clara, California from November 1 to November 14, offering them the opportunity to load their Sun 4/260 and VAX/8800 programs on a Series 10000 and see how they run.
