Item 1.01  Entry into Material Definitive Agreement.

On September 5, 2007, Globalstar, Inc. (“Globalstar” or the “Company”) and Arianespace, a European launch services company, entered into an agreement for the launch of the Company’s second-generation satellites and certain post-launch services.  Pursuant to the agreement Arianespace will make four launches of six satellites each, and Globalstar has the option to require Arianespace to make four additional launches of six satellites each.  Arianespace will use the Soyuz launch vehicle for all launches.  All launches will be made from Arianespace’s facilities in Kourou, French Guiana or Baikonur, Kazakhstan.

The total price for the first four launches is $210.0 million.  The total cost for the launches under this agreemen t is included in Globalstar’s previous disclosure that it anticipates $1.2 billion will be required to procure and launch its second-generation satellite constellation and related gateway upgrades.

The anticipated time period for the first four launches ranges from as early as the third quarter of 2009 through the end of 2010 and the optional launches are available from spring 2010 through the end of 2014.  Either Globalstar or Arianespace may postpone and reschedule the launches. Prolonged delays due to postponements by Globalstar could require the Company to pay additional fees to Arianespace.  Prolonged delays due to postponements by Arianespace may result in adjustments to the payment schedule.

Arianespace is providing general liability ins urance without cost to the Company covering third party injuries caused by the activities of Globalstar or Arianespace and each party’s respective associates at either of the potential launch sites, and for any property loss or bodily injury caused by the launch vehicle, the satellites or any components for a limited amount of time.

Arianespace may terminate the agreement if Globalstar fails to make payments when required.  In the event of termination by Arianespace for non-payment or by Globalstar for any reason other than for cause, Arianespace will be entitled to termination fees in amounts depending on the date of termination.
