The System

The Globalstar system consists of a constellation of 48 low-earth-orbiting (LEO) satellites. The satellites transmit calls from your wireless phone or fixed phone station to a terrestrial gateway.  The gateway transfers the calls on to existing fixed and cellular telephone networks in more than 100 countries on 6 continents.

Short message service (SMS) and data services will be available in the near future. Additionally, Globalstar’s Tri-Mode satellite phone automatically (or manually if programmed) switches from the Globalstar satellite network mode to the digital cellular mode (CDMA) or North American analog (AMPS) mode within the caller’s home network or when roaming to a neighboring network, reducing the cost of the call.
