World Surveillance Group, Inc. (WSGI) Subsidiary Achieves Strong Increase In Q1 2012 Sales

World Surveillance Group today announced that wholly owned subsidiary Global Telesat Corp. (GTC) achieved significantly higher first-quarter sales of its mobile satellite solutions (MSS), representing GTC's best quarter since its acquisition by WSGI. The company partially attributes the increase to the recent launch of its e-commerce MSS Web site,

GTC provides mobile voice and data communications services globally via satellite to the U.S. government, defense industry, and commercial users. During the first quarter of 2012, the company provided various MMS, including specialized satellite tracking devices and messaging services for use in Afghanistan; satellite phones during the uprisings in the Middle East; and satellite broadband airtime to enable wounded servicemen to send blogs, photographs, and e-mails during a two-month charitable fundraising trek to the base camp at Mt. Everest.

WSGI also noted GTC's growing industry recognition and inquiries from defense and defense-related companies seeking samples, demonstrations and technical information on the company's proprietary tracking devices, mapping software, and satellite ground station capabilities.

"One of our goals was to start the year strong by executing on opportunities available to each of
our businesses. We are currently receiving positive feedback from government and commercial customers interested in both GTC's products and our line of airships. We intend to build on the momentum we have generated in the first quarter to close more business and strengthen our
company during the rest of the year," WSGI president and CEO Glenn D. Estrella stated in the press release.

WSGI attributes the increased interest to GTC's strategy of diversifying its satellite business operations. GTC said it plans to continue to increase its products and solutions offerings; establish additional global reseller agreements; and aggressively marketing its full product suite of customized tracking devices, satellite communications equipment, and other MSS products.
