Globalstar Satellite Coverage
Founded in 1991 and based in Covington, Texas, Globalstar has invested more than $1.3 billion in its second-generation communication network. Globalstar has satellites that operate in eight Low Earth Orbit (LEO) planes, each using six satellites. This constantly moving network provides excellent coverage from latitudes of 70 degrees south to 70 degrees north. Currently, more than 750,000 subscribers use the Globalstar network around the globe.
Personnel Safety and Communication Solutions
Globalstar is well-known for its affordable GPS messenger solutions. Its Spot Gen 4 and Spot X are perfect solutions for those on an off-grid adventure and a staple with automotive and motorcycle rally participants all across North America. These systems will update your position, and predetermined intervals for family and friends can track your progress. Both solutions include a dedicated S.O.S. feature that will send emergency rescue staff to your location in the event of a life-threatening accident or injury.
Spot Gen 4 includes the ability to send and receive both text and SMS messages to any phone number worldwide. You can include accurate GPS location information with altitude to mark a location.

If you’ve set up a remote office that’s miles away from the nearest cellular tower, Globalstar offers the Sat-Fi2 family of Internet-connected Wi-Fi hot spots. You can provide up to eight team members with 72Kbps download speed web access, and voice and e-mail connectivity. All of the data solutions are S.O.S.-capable and work with GEOS to get help to your location quickly if needed.
