Globalstar Launches New ST100 Satellite Transmitter

By Eric Van Rees - 8th June 2020 - 06:13

Globalstar Europe Satellite Services, a wholly owned subsidiary of Globalstar and a provider of satellite messaging and emergency notification technologies, introduced the ST100, an innovative, embeddable, one-way satellite transmitter ready for rapid product development and manufacturing in the global marketplace.

The ST100 is lightweight, low-power consuming and small with embedded antennas, all on one commercial IoT board. The ST100 provides low cost, reliable connectivity powered by the Globalstar Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellite constellation, and offers satcom integration capability to any original equipment manufacturer (OEM) product.

The ST100 is the newest addition to the Globalstar commercial IoT embedded solutions product line, joining the STX3 and STINGR satellite transmitters. These embedded technologies are ideal for delivering remote sensing, tracking and monitoring of field applications across industrial and remote operations. With their global connectivity, Globalstar’s Embedded Solutions do not require any additional ground infrastructure for data exchange, reducing costs typically associated with traditional connectivity while saving more than half the typical time to production. Because the ST100 operates on the Globalstar Satellite Network, one solution works everywhere without multiple country service contracts or roaming fees.

The ST100 is customisable for new commercial IoT product innovations and can be used by simply adding power, a mechanical enclosure and configuring the settings within the device firmware. For more advanced technical requirements, third parties can write their own firmware on the ST100 and utilise Globalstar APIs, Bluetooth wireless technology and the serial connector to expand the use of the board and integrate with other devices or hardware.
