Services

COVINGTON, La., Dec. 10, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Globalstar, Inc.
(Nasdaq:GSAT) today announced that all six satellites scheduled for launch in
early February are now at the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan. Following the

Once deployed, the six satellites will restore full service to Globalstar's

provider to deploy a second-generation constellation of low-earth-orbit (LEO)
satellites. Combined with the Company's affordable and award-winning suite of
consumer retail SPOT products, Globalstar will be uniquely positioned to offer
the world's most extensive lineup of highly reliable and lowest priced mobile

"After more than six years of design and development, we are proud to announce
that Globalstar is on the threshold of completing the deployment of our new
constellation. This successful delivery signals the achievement of one of the
last key milestones for our fourth launch and restoration of Globalstar's
industry leading service quality," said Jay Monroe, Chairman and CEO for
Globalstar, Inc.

Two of the six satellites previously delivered to the launch site have already
been fueled and mated to the upper stack of the dispenser of the Soyuz launch
vehicle. With the delivery of the final two satellites, the Company remains on
schedule for a launch in early February.
