"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.

Here at TS2, we are excited about the opportunities this new partnership opens up for us.
