Connectivity

Globalstar Satellite Transceiver Enables M2M Data Collection From Assets
Beyond the Reach of Cellular and Terrestrial Communication

COVINGTON, La., March 18, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Globalstar Inc., a leading
provider of mobile satellite voice and data services, announced the signing of
a three-year manufacturing, airtime and distribution agreement with Nupoint
Systems to expand the Company's M2M data communication service offerings
beyond the reach of terrestrial (cellular) communication. Nupoint products and
services integrated with Globalstar satellite data services will be used to
provide two-way communications for M2M data collection and monitoring of
customer assets. Companies that utilize remote locations, such as: oil and gas
wells, mining sites, water management systems, environmental/weather sites,
pollution detection systems, early warning systems and remote security will
benefit from this cost-effective, long-term asset monitoring solution.

"Our team has successfully designed and launched thousands of satellite based
devices over the years and after careful testing and evaluation we concluded
the combination of great value, excellent throughput and the fact that the
second generation constellation is now complete made Globalstar the partner of
choice for Nupoint's satellite service," said Wayne Carlson, President & CEO
of Nupoint Systems. "Companies can't always choose the location of their
assets, but they can choose a reliable and cost effective satellite
communications solution to connect to those assets. With Globalstar's recently
launched satellites having a design life of 15 years, Nupoint is able to
provide reliable two-way connectivity with our customer's data equipment, even
in the most remote locations for years to come."

"Globalstar's satellite network will provide reliable solutions to meet the
varying needs of Nupoint Systems' many customers. Decision making information
will be available in real-time regardless of the asset location," said Frank
Bell, President of Global Sales and Marketing for Globalstar. "Being chosen by
a group of experienced satellite device manufacturers such as Nupoint, further
demonstrates the confidence being shown throughout the industry as Globalstar
reclaims its position as a world leader in MSS voice and data services. As the
first provider to complete the launch of a 2nd generation constellation, our
customers can enjoy the reliability and the continuation of affordably priced
services to meet their evolving data communication needs."

Globalstar successfully launched its final batch of second-generation
satellites on February 6, 2013. Once placed in service, Globalstar will be
positioned as the first mobile satellite services provider to complete the
deployment of 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
satellite services to the broadest range of customers around the globe.
