WASHINGTON DC, September 16 (Itar-Tass) —— The launch of six Globalstar satellites with Russian launch vehicles from Baikonur is delayed again, this time until early December, the U.S. Globalstar telecom operator said on Friday.
“Globalstar Inc., a leading provider of mobile satellite voice and data services to businesses, government and consumers, today announced that its third launch of six second-generation satellites is now planned for early December,” says the company press release.
“Launch services provider Arianespace informed Globalstar of the updated schedule. Launches will occur only after Russian Space Agency officials have completed inspections of certain Soyuz launch vehicles and the Globalstar launch is not expected to occur until after at least one other Soyuz flight, which is expected to be a mission to the international space station. Globalstar will provide an update regarding the timing of the fourth launch of six satellites when information becomes available.
“Globalstar is currently deploying its second-generation satellite constellation and Arianespace has been contracted to conduct launches of six satellites each. The first two launches were successfully conducted in October of 2010 and July of 2011.
“Globalstar is a leading provider of mobile satellite voice and data services. Globalstar offers these services to commercial customers and recreational consumers in more than 120 countries around the world,” the press release said.
