The Greek Armed Forces will receive satellite phone service from a Turkish company, Globalstar Avrasya, which also provides service to 30 other countries.
The Globalstar satellite phones are regarded as one of the most secure communication tools, as this equipment makes illegal wiretapping almost impossible through its complicated and insurmountable ciphering ability. The satellite phones convert conversations into 3-trillion combinations that would make it almost impossible to decipher. The Turkish-made satellite phones were previously delivering services in only 13 Middle Eastern countries, but recently a number of Eastern European and African countries have requested the use Globalstar Avrasya satellite phones. Greece and Finland have recently signed an agreement with the company to use the satellites phones.
All intelligence-sharing and communication systems in Turkey are being directed and managed by Turkish engineers. Only Telecommunications Directorate (TİB) can reach communications records. The large majority of Globalstar Avrasya’s subscribers, which is an independent operator of Globalstar that has more than 500,000 subscribers across the world, are state institutions and the Turkish Armed Forces (TSK). The Turkish military’s secure communications are being realized through this system during operations.
With the new agreement, subscribers from Finland, Estonia, Lithuania, Belarus, Ukraine, Romania, Serbia, Moldova, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Kosovo, Montenegro, Albania, Macedonia, Greece, Syria, Iraq, Lebanon, Palestine, Israel, Jordan, Libya, Egypt, Kuwait, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates will be able to receive phone services from the Turkish company.
