Global Telesat Communications Wins 'Votes' To Supply Mobile Satellite Services In African State Elections

They were there to assist during a very hectic political time in Africa. Orbital Tracking Corp., (OTCQB: TRKK) provided a number of their products and services in support of the Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ). 


Global Telesat Communications Ltd. (GTCL), a wholly owned subsidiary of Orbital Tracking Corp., has provided more than 200 Thuraya XT Pro satellite phones, Thuraya IP satellite broadband terminals and RedPort Optimizers together with associated airtime, and supplied customer support services to ECZ and its staff during the country's presidential elections which took place on August 11. This is the largest sale of its kind secured by GTC in Africa and its positive impact will be reflected in the Company's financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2016.

David Phipps, CEO of Orbital Tracking Corp. and Managing Director of Global Telesat Communications stated, "We are pleased to have been awarded this significant new order, the largest for GTCL in Africa and further evidence that our expanding global footprint is firmly establishing us as a premier provider of satellite-based communications products and services across the world."
