This paper evaluates the internetwork handover performance in a GSM and satellite integrated mobile communication system. The performance evaluation is based on an analytical model developed for internetwork handover. The handover performance parameters considered are the handover position, unnecessary handover probability, and call-dropping probability. Handover initiation is based on the signal level and distance measurement. The results are compared with those of the GSM handover performance. The analysis shows that the performance achieved in internetwork handover can be similar to those of the GSM handover with the considered handover initiation scheme
