Globalstar... Add In Six More... (Satellites)2011.02.13
[SatNews] Globalstar, Inc. (Nasdaq:GSAT), a provider of mobile satellite voice and data services to businesses, government, and consumers has released information regarding the launch of its new 2G satellites.

Globalstar expects to conduct the next launch of six satellites in May, plus two additional launches of six satellites per launch within 60-90 days following the previous launch. All three launches will use the Soyuz launch vehicle and each will be conducted from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan. In October, Globalstar successfully launched six new 2G satellites using the Soyuz.

"As planned, during the orbit-raising of the first new satellites launched in October, we continue to validate our on-orbit acceptance tests and operating procedures for each of the new spacecraft," said Tony Navarra, President, Global Operations for Globalstar, Inc. "Our six-month validation period is being used to confirm our satellite design and performance. Once complete, and barring any unforeseen issues, we will be able to confirm a more specific scheduled launch date." Globalstar contracted with launch services provider Arianespace for a total of four launches of six satellites each using the Soyuz. Globalstar plans to integrate the 24 new satellites with the eight 1G satellites that were launched in 2007, to form a 32 satellite constellation. Globalstar signed a contract with satellite manufacturer Thales Alenia Space in late 2006 for the design, manufacture and delivery of its second-generation constellation satellites. The new satellites are designed to support Globalstar's current lineup of voice, Duplex and Simplex data products and services including the Company's lineup of SPOT retail consumer products.
