Globalstar Europe satellite services signs agreement with TS2 satellite technologies
Globalstar Europe Satellite Services has announced that it has signed an authorized distribution agreement with TS2 Satellite Technologies, a leading provider of satellite communication products and services.
TS2 will act as a National Distributor for Globalstar’s suite of mobile satellite voice and duplex data products to the defense, government and private sectors within the Polish Mainland Territory via their established Dealer channel.
“As we complete the deployment of our second-generation constellation of satellites, we are delighted that TS2 has chosen to offer their customers Globalstar’s unique line-up of MSS voice and duplex data solutions,” said Jim Mandala, General Manager, Globalstar Canada and Europe Sales.
On December 28, 2011, Globalstar announced that six new second-generation Globalstar satellites were successfully launched from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan, using the Soyuz launch vehicle.
This was the third successful launch of Globalstar’s new second-generation satellites. The Globalstar second-generation satellite constellation is designed to support the Company’s current line-up of voice, Duplex and Simplex data products and services including its suite of SPOT retail consumer products.
The new satellites are designed to last for 15 years, twice the lifespan of Globalstar’s first-generation satellites.
“By becoming an official distributor of Globalstar, we can finally offer a complete range of global MSS services to our customers. Here at TS2, we are excited about the opportunities this new partnership opens up for us. Our customers will be able to take advantage of the low-cost and high quality voice and data services that Globalstar will offer once they have completed deployment of their second-generation satellite constellation next year,” said Marcin Frackiewicz, TS2’s owner and CEO.
