MOSCOW (BNS): Russia has postponed the launch of US Globalstar-2 communications satellites from its Souyz-2.1a spacecraft for at least twenty four hours, a media report said.

The space craft which was scheduled to be blast off on July 11 from the Baikonur Space Center in Kazakhstan is delayed due to some technical glitches.

"We have postponed the launch till the reserve date on July 12. The reasons for the postponement will be announced later," RIA Novosti quoted the space agency spokesperson as saying.

Globalstar is a low-earth orbit (LEO) satellite-based telecommunications system founded by US-based Loral Corporation and Qualcomm Inc.

It provides high-quality satellite voice and data services across North America, and to over 120 countries worldwide, it said.
