ORBCOMM is a leading global satellite data communications company focused on Machine-to Machine (M2M) communications. The company’s satellite constellation includes six recently launched spacecraft carrying Automatic Identification System (AIS) receivers, making ORBCOMM the first commercial provider of globally collected AIS data from space. Additionally, ORBCOMM’s M2M service and shipboard communicators are capable of fulfilling the requirements of Long Range Identification and Tracking (LRIT). Using either M2M or AIS communications, vessel data can be provided globally by ORBCOMM in an efficient and cost effective manner.
By means of a global network of low-earth orbit (LEO) satellites and accompanying ground infrastructure, ORBCOMM’s low-cost and reliable two way data communications products and services track, monitor and control mobile and fixed assets in four core markets: commercial transportation; heavy equipment; industrial fixed assets; and marine/homeland security.
