Notes: 
NASA and Canadian Dept. of Communications signed on 20 April 1971 an
agreement for first cooperative international project for experimental
communications technology satellite. Cooperative Applications Satellite
C (CASC would be launched into geostationary orbit by NASA in 1974 to
conduct communications experiments with ground terminals operating at extremely
high frequencies, test onekilowatt solarpowercell arrays that would unfurl
in space like window shades, and test electric propulsion and stabilization
systems. Project was fifth in series of cooperative satellites which began
with launch of Alowtte 1 in 1962.
