Globalstar and Global Telesat Communications Celebrate 5,000th SPOT Device Sales Milestone

Orbital Tracking Corp., (OTCQB:TRKK) announced today that its wholly-owned subsidiary Global Telesat Communications Ltd. (GTCL) and Globalstar Europe Satellite Services Ltd (NYSE MKT:GSAT) reached a major sales milestone with the shipment of its 5,000th SPOT tracking device, making GTCL one of the largest SPOT distributors in Europe and one of the UK’s leading suppliers of Mobile Satellite Solutions (MSS) including satellite mobile voice, data and tracking services.

Since forming its initial Distributor Agreement with Globalstar in early 2013, GTCL has significantly expanded its global sales and distribution efforts to include Globalstar’s unique line-up of high quality satellite voice and duplex data solutions, satellite phones, airtime plans and accessories. GTCL has seen considerable SPOT sales growth across a number of recreational consumer verticals including outdoor enthusiasts and adventurers, competitive sports including runners and cyclists and in commercial use for remote field worker scenarios providing increased worker safety and communications capabilities.

SPOT products offer users worldwide peace of mind, by allowing them to track their assets, use location-based messaging and emergency notification technology and to make calls beyond the reach of mobile signals. Over the past seven years, lone-workers and outdoor enthusiasts have come to depend on SPOT’s life-saving capabilities. SPOT products have been used to initiate over 3,500 rescues globally and are currently at an average of a rescue every day. In 2014, there were 27 rescues in Europe alone.

“Our partnership with Globalstar has never been stronger and we are pleased to have reached this notable sales milestone in such a short timeframe. Thanks to Globalstar’s ongoing commitment to building one of the most advanced and capable second-generation satellite constellations, along with its expansion into new markets, such as in Africa with the launch of its Botswana gateway, we are seeing a great many new, untapped sales opportunities for our portfolio of cost-effective and reliable MSS products,” said David Phipps, Managing Director of Global Telesat Communications.

Globalstar recently completed a constellation-wide upgrade programme including the launch of 24 low-earth-orbit (LEO) satellites. In addition to upgrading its satellite fleet, it is also modernising its ground station network such as in Gaborone, Botswana which has extended Globalstar’s reach into Sub-Saharan Africa.

"We wish to commend GTCL for this sales achievement and for its work as a valuable Globalstar partner. Supported by the industry’s most modern and robust satellite communications platform, GTCL plays a critical role in ensuring that SPOT is the clear choice for customers around the globe who require reliable connectivity and accurate GPS tracking solutions,” said Mark O’Connell, Director of European Sales & Business Operations at Globalstar Europe Satellite Services Ltd.
