Globalstar Europe Satellite Services Ltd., the leader in satellite communications and emergency notification technologies, will showcase leading edge solutions to safeguard people and assets at SICUR 2018 International Security, Safety And Fire Exhibition (20-23 February 2018, Feria de Madrid) Visitors to Globalstar stand 10B37 can learn how its suite of communications and tracking products can help protect valuable equipment and cargo, provide security and peace of mind to remote workers, and help users stay in contact with colleagues, family and emergency services even in areas outside of mobile phone coverage.


At SICUR 2018 we announce Globalstar’s new partnership with leading security specialists SECURITAS DIRECT. Throughout its more than 25 years of history, Securitas has become the worldwide number one in alarm systems development. More than two million people worldwide rely on Securitas for their protection. The new partnership between Globalstar and Securitas will enable more and more organisations to enjoy better safety and security, anywhere, 24/7 thanks to the reach and reliability of Globalstar satellites.



SICUR 2018 will be the European debut of the all-new SmartOne Solar, the satellite industry’s only solar-powered commercial one-way asset manager. SmartOne Solar monitors assets of any kind, whether fixed or mobile, including shipping containers, transport trailers, construction machinery and vehicle fleets. SmartOne Solar enables ultra low maintenance and ultra cost-efficient tracking. Powered with solar-rechargeable batteries, SmartOne Solar can deliver over eight years of serviceable life and low maintenance. The device will even operate continuously for many months while reporting twice a day without the need for any exposure to sunlight.

Another member of the SmartOne family is SmartOne C. Like SmartOne Solar, SmartOne C incorporates an accelerometer that alerts owners to any unexpected motion, such as attempts of theft. The device can also dynamically report asset status and monitor faults, significantly enhancing operations. What’s more, should the line power be interrupted or fail, SmartOne C automatically switches to battery back-up to provide uninterrupted transmission.



At SICUR 2018, Globalstar will also feature its pocket-sized GPS messenger, the popular SPOT Gen3TM. With this small, rugged competitively-priced device, remote workers can send an SOS with just the touch of a button. Emergency services instantly receive GPS location information and help can be immediately dispatched to the person in distress. And with SPOT, colleagues, operation centre managers, or friends and family can track the user’s location 24/7 thanks to an easy-to-use Google Maps interface. Visit the Globalstar stand to learn why Junta de Castilla La Mancha selected SPOT Gen3 to support fire crews as they combat forest fires and wildfires.


SPOT devices have been used to initiate over 5,500 rescues around the world, many of which were live-saving.

SPOT TraceTM is a small device that helps users keep track of their valuable assets via satellite. Whether tracking and safeguarding a fleet of vehicles or high-value cargo containers and packages, with SPOT Trace, the user receives a text or email alert when new movement is detected and is able to track his/her assets via Google Maps.

At SICUR 2018, Globalstar will also highlight the opportunities for Value Added Resellers (VARs) in the security sector to add satellite communications to their existing products. By adding satellite communications to existing GSM solutions, customers can rest reassured that they can communicate even where there is patchy or non-existent mobile/cellular service. With the progress in satellite technologies and Globalstar’s huge investments in our network capabilities – from the chipset to our next generation network – satellite communication is now much more affordable and reliable than ever before. These developments are resulting in new market opportunities for savvy VARs.
