Technological Advances

The Globalstar Low Earth Orbiting (LEO) satellite constellation offers customers simple, dependable communications thanks to the following key technological advantages.

Clarity of voice
QUALCOMM's CDMA (Code Division Multiple Access) technology makes Globalstar calls exceptionally secure and clear, often with better voice quality than cellular networks, and greater system capacity.

Almost no perceptible voice delay
Use of Low Earth Orbiting (LEO) satellites, moving at an altitude of 1,414 kilometers, means almost no perceptible voice delay, as compared with the noticeable time delay and echo effect of calls utilizing geosynchronous satellites, whose orbits are many times higher.

The Globalstar system's software resides on and is monitored from the ground, not from satellites, which means easy and fast system maintenance and upgrades.

Lighter, all-in-one phones
Satellite mobile phones manufactured by QUALCOMM, are lightweight and certain models can be used for both cellular and satellite-based calls. The phones are available with many accessories, such as car, marine and data kits, which extend the phone's reach still further.
