Globalstar Expands Satellite Data Coverage Throughout All of Australia, New Zealand and Surrounding Maritime Region

    Installation of new Simplex data applique continues Globalstar strategy of
    growing market segments and data business by expanding geographic

    MILPITAS, Calif., June 13 /CNW/ -- Globalstar, Inc. (Nasdaq:   GSAT), a
leading provider of mobile satellite voice and data services to businesses,
government, and individuals, today announced that it has expanded its
satellite Simplex data coverage to include all of Australia, New Zealand and
the surrounding maritime region.  Globalstar customers in these regions will
now have access to a variety of satellite asset tracking, tracing and data
monitoring solutions utilizing the Globalstar Simplex data network.
    The expanded Simplex data coverage, which is now available on six
continents, is the result of hardware upgrades made by Globalstar, to the
satellite gateway or ground station located in Dubbo, Australia. The gateway
is owned and operated by Globalstar independent service provider Globalstar
Australia Pty Limited and is used to provide customers with access to ground
based voice and data networks via the Globalstar satellite constellation.
    "Installation of this new applique not only expands Globalstar's
satellite Simplex geographic coverage in Australia and New Zealand but when
combined with our recent agreement with SingTel, it continues our expanded
presence in the Pacific Rim region which includes some of the world's fastest
growing economies," said Jay Monroe, Chairman and CEO of Globalstar, Inc.  Mr.
Monroe added, "This investment is also further evidence of our company's
commitment to one of the fastest growing areas of our business.  In the last
two quarters Globalstar has made a number of compelling Simplex data
announcements, and we expect to continue to expand our simplex market
opportunity through 2007 and beyond."
    Since the beginning of the year, Globalstar has announced a number of
Simplex data initiatives including the introduction of a new smaller and
lighter Simplex data modem known as the AXTracker MMT, the launch of Simplex
data and back office service for its customers in Latin America, and the
extension of a Simplex data reseller agreement with General Electric's Asset
Intelligence unit.  In May Globalstar entered into an agreement with Singapore
Telecommunications Limited (SingTel) which paves the way for both companies to
deliver tracking and trace solutions for the maritime and logistics
industries, using the Globalstar Simplex data network.
    The Globalstar Simplex data offering is a low cost, one-way satellite
data service that allows customers to use Simplex data modems and integrated
back office management solutions to track mobile assets -- such as vehicles,
trailers, cargo containers and marine vessels, using GPS or other
location-based software.  Because it can be used to monitor data offshore, far
from the reach of terrestrial based wireless networks, the service is also
ideal for recreational marine and fishing vessel-monitoring applications.  The
Globalstar Simplex data service can also be used for a wide variety of
industrial and security applications to monitor and send information from
fixed assets, such as environmental measuring instruments, utility meters, or
report the state of various mobile sensor devices and their locations.
    This service enhancement once again demonstrates Globalstar's commitment
to introducing new product and pricing solutions designed to meet the dynamic
requirements of the satellite voice and data marketplace.  For sales
