1worldspace "was founded in 1990 by Noah A. Samara, its Chairman and CEO, with a mission to provide digital satellite audio, data and multimedia services primarily to the emerging markets of Africa and Asia. A pioneer of digital satellite radio, Mr. Samara was also instrumental in the development of the satellite radio industry through his early involvement with XM Satellite Radio in the United States.

"The company's mission is to provide a variety of high quality programming through a subscription-based service that uses low-cost portable satellite radios and is available in underserved markets that today lack programming choice. 1worldspace is the first and only company with rights to the world's globally allocated spectrum for digital satellite radio. Its broadcast footprint covers over 130 countries including India and China, all of Africa and the Middle East and most of Western Europe - an area that includes five billion people and more than 300 million automobiles. Its two fully operational satellites and ground infrastructure are based on proprietary and patented technology." [1]
