Reduction of a decade's worth of Lageos Satellite Laser Ranging (SLR) is providing new insights into contemporary plate kinematics. Globally, the SLR results have largely confirmed the plate motion models developed from geologic evidence. Analysis of the data from 12 base stations finds all interstation SLR rates having a linear cross correlation of .91 with the Minster and Jordan geologic model. To within their uncertainties, the time scales of the geologic and SLR models are found to be in agreement indicating that globally, the tectonic rates are linear over time scales of 1 to 10 million years. Regionally, SLR data exclusively has been used to develop a model of the absolute station motions for observing sites within the Western United States. The observed intersite motion of the two stations comprising the San Andreas Fault Experiment appears to be non-linear over the last decade, with the relative motion between these sites changing from -6 to -2 cm/year during the last four years. The results achieved with SLR are complemented and largely confirmed by those achieved with other space technologies. It is clear that Satellite Laser Ranging has reached a new level of maturity. After passing through the threshold of confirming the global nature of plate kinematics, research is now focusing on the development of models for the effective utilization of the constraints provided by space geodesy. These constraints will assist in our understanding of the mechanisms which drive tectonic motions and cause a complex picture of strain accumulation at the plate boundaries.
