Globalstar satellite network

Globalstar is a regional satellite network consisting of thirty-two satellites scrolling across the equator.

The satellites do not communicate with each over and need to be visible  from a ground station, whose number at land is limited, that is why there is non-covered areas in its coverage.

This one is different in duplex (bidirectional) and in simples (in one way, from Globalstar equipment to earth).

In duplex (voice and low-speed data transmission), satellites cover Europe, Americas, Australia, North Africa, a part of Asia and a part of Middle-East.

In simplex, coverage is more extensive and leave fewer discontinuities.

E-SAT is national signatory for France of the Globalstar network.

Globalstar technology overview :

Globalstar services

Globalstar network allow voice communications and low-speed data transmissions up to 9.6 Kbit/s. It’s therefore essentially for voice and in the maritime sector that users opt for this network, knowing that the audio codec have very good quality.

For low-speed data transmission, Globalstar have a SBD (Short Burst Data) offer and price plans including an allowance in kilo-octet.

Globalstar terminals

At this day, Globalstar portables from all manufacturers (Ericsson, TELIT SAT & Qualcoom) are no longer manufactured, available or maintained. We would like to draw our customers’ attention to the fact that some of these terminals have been designed since the commercial launch of the constellation in early 2000.

Only some accessories are still commercialized : marine Kit GIK for maritime with different lengths of antenna cable, external antennas passive or active, prive handset. Accessories for outdated handheld terminals are no longer stocked.

Globalstar is now focusing on tracking beacons and unidirectional message like SPOT GEN 3 or SPOT Trace or bi-directional beacons such as the SPOT X.

E-SAT only commercialize equipment that are approved in Europe.

Internet of Things with Globalstar and E-SAT

E-SAT offers simplex or duplex beacons in the form of core modules for developers of the SmartOne and STINGR range. Some core module that are really compact with power supply (cable or batteries) integrate GPS chip. Core module is configure, associate to an sensor (alarm, trigger…) to send a SBD type message. Core module price is The price of the core module is almost symbolic and the associated SBD pricing is very advantageous which makes it possible to envisage a consequent deployment of core module (beacons) for a project. Applications are numerous in industrial field for equipment surveillance, remote control, fault detection, follow and geolocation. In this context and in partnership with a developer, we offer our clients an access to a Web platform to manage their tags. The platform adapts itself according to each project, application and the information and messages collected. The access to this platform is paying and dimensioned according to the project.

For the energy, maritime and processing sectors, Smart One beacons adapt to your needs. E-SAT assists you in the realization of your project from the choice of the beacon to its integration on our platform.
