Description of GLOBALSTAR M042 Satellite:

Globalstar M45 was one of a planned 52 (48 operational and 4 on-orbit spares) satellites in the Space Systems Loral "Big LEO" global mobile communications network offering global real time voice, data and fax, was launched on a Soyuz rocket from the Baikonur cosmodrome. The satellite was 3-axis stabilized and employed magnetometers on a deployable boom, sun sensors, GPS as attitude sensors, and carried two deployable solar arrays delivering 1100 W. The satellites in the first-generation constellation were designed to operate at full performance for a minimum of 7.5 years.

The satellites in the system will be placed into low earth orbit in eight operational planes of six satellites each with 1,414 kilometer circular orbit inclined at 52 degrees.
