A satellite that is at an altitude and in an orbit such that it maintains a fixed position relative to the Earth's surface. An FSS is in contrast to an MSS (Mobile Satellite System). FSS is synonymous with geosynchronous earth orbiting (GEO) satellite. See also GEO, MSS, and satellite.
There are a number of FSS conditions and goals to be met along the way, but if the breed club is successful, they will eventually be eligible for full AKC registration and participation in all AKC shows and events.
Foundation Stock Service (FSS) list of dog breeds includes those which are rare or newly arrived in the United States.
The FSS is a registry for these developing breeds to record the pedigree of the offspring of the stock.
