Radyne has announced its AeroAstro business unit will supply Globalstar with network upgrades as part of AeroAstro's SENS (Sensor Enabled Notification System) that will enhance both the receiver sensitivity and the overall customer messaging capacity of the entire AeroAstro-powered Globalstar Simplex data network. According to the recently signed agreement, AeroAstro will provide ground network upgrades to the entire fleet of deployed receivers to expand the current subscriber messaging capacity of the data network by 10 times and increase receiver sensitivity of the network by up to 40 percent.

Increased receiver sensitivity will further expand the geographic coverage area currently providing simplex data services and is expected to further improve message transmission reliability, which already exceeds 99 percent in its primary coverage area. Deliveries of the necessary upgrades are scheduled to begin in early 2008.

Globalstar's AeroAstro-powered SENS simplex data network is used to support a variety of aviation flight-following, emergency asset, fleet and personal tracking applications. Simplex data modem integrated solutions are also used for a number of remote monitoring and alarm applications, both within and beyond the reach of traditional wireless and terrestrial infrastructure. Information such as GPS location co-ordinates, remote status and other sensor information can be reliably sent to customers using the network.

"AeroAstro's technology lead in low cost reliable remote monitoring continues to drive new sales in this high growth market," said Myron Wagner, Radyne's CEO. "This is just one of many markets where Radyne and AeroAstro can exploit new sales opportunities."

AeroAstro's SENS technology provides a total solution that is uniquely affordable and reliable with ubiquitous coverage over most of the globe. AeroAstro combines infrastructure and asset tag hardware, data portal and communications services, and systems engineering to deliver prices, power savings, compact size and ease of use previously unimaginable from satellite communications.
