As part of the pact, TS2 will act as a national distributor for Globalstar's suite of mobile satellite voice and duplex data products to the defense, government and private sectors within the Polish Mainland Territory via their established dealer channel.
“As we complete the deployment of our second-generation constellation of satellites, we are delighted that TS2 has chosen to offer their customers Globalstar's unique line-up of MSS voice and duplex data solutions,” said Jim Mandala, general manager, Globalstar Canada and Europe Sales, in a statement.
“By becoming an official distributor of Globalstar, we can finally offer a complete range of global MSS services to our customers,” said Marcin Frackiewicz, owner and CEO of TS2.
“Here at TS2, we are excited about the opportunities this new partnership opens up for us,” said Frackiewicz.

TMCnet in December reported that to provide mobile satellite voice and data services to commercial customers and recreational consumers in more than 120 countries around the world, Globalstar has launched six new second-generation Globalstar satellites from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan.
According to a press release, the Globalstar satellites were launched using the Soyuz-Fregat version of the Soyuz launch vehicle. The new satellites are developed to last for 15 years, twice the lifespan of Globalstar's first generation satellites.
