Much of the African continent has limited terrestrial and/or cellular infrastructure. In these regions in particular, Globalstar's satellite services, provide a compelling must-have solution for seamless tracking of people and assets. This is as a result of Globalstar leveraging the industry's only complete next generation satellite constellation in orbit.

Globalstar Pan-African Satellite Coverage

The Globalstar network enables professional, corporate and government users to monitor vital infrastructure. Additionally, it can also enhance the effectiveness of life-saving emergency first responder services.

Jay Monroe, Chairman and CEO of Globalstar:

Expanding our service throughout Africa demonstrates Globalstar's ongoing commitment to making our technology globally accessible. We see this region as a significant growth opportunity for our low cost satellite solutions. For the first time, people and industries in this burgeoning region will have access to affordable satellite solutions. These solutions are for both personal and asset tracking! We look forward to working with BBi to make our technology available to more people and businesses across Africa.
