Globalstar Introduces Sat-Fi(TM), a Groundbreaking MSS Solution

Sat-Fi Instantly Turns Any Smartphone, Tablet or Computer Into a Satellite
Phone or Data Device

COVINGTON, La., Jan. 29, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Today, Globalstar, Inc.
(OTCQB:GSAT) unveiled Sat-Fi, a revolutionary voice and data solution that
provides seamless integration between any Wi-Fi enabled device (i.e.,
smartphones, tablets, laptops, etc.) and Globalstar's new satellite
constellation. With Sat-Fi, Globalstar customers can use their existing
smartphones and existing phone numbers to send and receive communications over
the Company's satellite network, offering seamless voice and data connectivity
when beyond the range of cellular. This new technology means that people who
find themselves outside of cell coverage, for whatever reason, can use their
existing smartphones or computers to always stay connected.

Through a convenient app and Sat-Fi satellite hot spot, subscribers will be
able to easily send and receive calls, email and SMS text messages anywhere
within Globalstar's footprint from their own device. Like all Globalstar
mobile satellite solutions, Sat-Fi is built and priced to appeal to a broad
addressable market, including enterprise and government customers as well as
the mass consumer market. Whether on land or at sea, Sat-Fi subscribers will
be able to maintain constant, reliable connectivity when traveling in and out
of cellular coverage with seamless handoff capabilities, while permitting
numerous individuals to communicate through a single Sat-Fi hot spot using
their existing devices and phone numbers.

Who needs Globalstar Sat-Fi?

Now, roughly two billion people in the world either live, work or play beyond
the range of terrestrial networks. Additionally there are those people who
temporarily find themselves without cellular coverage for whatever reason,
including, but not limited to:

  *Emergency responders and those impacted by natural or man-made disasters
    where cell coverage often becomes unavailable, which was experienced
    during Hurricanes Katrina and Sandy, recent tornado outbreaks and the
    Northeast blackout of 2003
  *Recreational or commercial boat owners and enthusiasts, and their
    passengers, who need to be able to make calls, send emails and communicate
    via SMS text messages over satellite while maintaining the capabilities
    and flexibility of their existing smartphones and computers
  *Oil and Gas and other natural resources industries who rely on constant,
    cost-effective connectivity for work productivity and peace of mind
  *Temporary industrial worksites that rely on simple, constant voice and
    data connectivity within a portable office environment
  *Avid outdoor recreationalists, such as hunters, hikers and campers who
    need assurance when traveling on or off the grid

"It has been our vision to seamlessly integrate satellite and terrestrial
coverage, and through many years of research and development, we are thrilled
to announce this proprietary new technology and service offering in order to
expand the use and appeal of our mobile satellite services to a much larger
addressable market," said Jay Monroe, Chairman and CEO of Globalstar. "Now
that we have completed the deployment of our new constellation, Sat-Fi will
have global appeal to those who need reliable connectivity beyond the cellular
grid. As we continue to seamlessly integrate our satellite services into the
everyday lives of our increasingly expanding subscriber base, this scalable
technology represents a giant leap forward in achieving this fundamental goal.
We have waited a long time to be in the position to announce this breakthrough
product and I'd like to thank the entire development team for their unending
perseverance."

Globalstar is expected to receive final FCC certification of Sat-Fi during the
second quarter of 2014, with shipments starting shortly thereafter. The
Company will then market and sell the product offering through its enterprise,
government and consumer distribution network with planned extensions into OEM
channels.
