WorldSpace creates gov unit

WorldSpace Corp., a provider of direct satellite delivery for digital radio and multimedia services, launched a government sales unit to take advantage of growing public-sector demand for satellite communications.

WorldSpace's satellite system serves Africa, the Middle East, Asia and parts of Europe, enabling the firm to leverage its satellites and spectrum licenses to serve agencies needing clear communication of voice and data into markets with limited infrastructure, according to the company.

Using its two geostationary satellites, AfriStar and AsiaStar, and its ownership of broad-spectrum licenses, WorldSpace delivers more than 100 audio channels per satellite as well as Web content and data directly to portable receivers.
