Globalstar Europe Satellite Services, a wholly owned subsidiary of Globalstar (NASDAQ: GSAT), today announced it has signed an authorised distribution agreement with Applied Satellite Technology (AST), one of the world's leading providers of satellite communication products and services. With this new agreement, AST will return as a national distributor for Globalstar's suite of duplex products to the defence, government and maritime sectors within the UK Mainland Territory, via its established dealer channel.
“We are very excited to be working with Globalstar Europe again as they deploy the second-generation constellation. The replenishment of Globalstar's network is nearing completion and now is an ideal time for AST to strengthen our existing partnership as a leading Globalstar distributor. The reintroduction of Globalstar with its legendary voice call quality and enhanced duplex service will enrich our portfolio of MSS products and enable us to offer more choice to our resellers,” said Jason Abbott, director of AST.
"As we complete the deployment of our second-generation constellation of satellites, we are delighted that AST has chosen to offer their customers Globalstar's unique line-up of high quality MSS voice and duplex data solutions," said Mark O'Connell, Director European Sales & Business Operations, Globalstar Europe Satellite Services.
