Globalstar Tracking, Botswana-Style
Earlier this year, the Company announced the 90-day window for the launch of the first six Globalstar satellites is scheduled to open on July 5th of this year. Once the satellites are deployed, the TCU network will provide Globalstar with the ability to communicate with and monitor the condition of its new constellation from the Company's two satellite operations and control center locations in California. The new satellites are expected to provide Globalstar customers with enhanced next-generation Internet-protocol multi-media or IMS and legacy mobile satellite services beyond 2025. Globalstar expects to complete construction of the Botswana tracking station and begin taking delivery of its new satellites later this spring.
