ORBCOMM Inc. (Nasdaq: ORBC), a global provider of satellite and cellular-based
Machine-to-Machine (M2M) solutions, today announced the availability of the
ORBCOMM GT 1100, a self-powered M2M asset tracking and monitoring device
targeted for a variety of global markets including transportation and
logistics, heavy equipment and oil and gas.

ORBCOMM’s ruggedized, easy-to-install device is designed to fit seamlessly in
between the indented spacing on intermodal containers. Its low, one-inch
height profile and small form factor are also ideal for tracking and
monitoring trailers and other types of cargo assets.The GT
1100issensor-compatible andself-powered with solar rechargingtechnology
forlowpower consumption, which works well for tracking and monitoring other
remote unpowered assets such asconstructionand miningequipment.

The ORBCOMM GT 1100 can support three modes of communication – cellular,
satellite and dual-mode, which blends cellular and satellite capability. This
device will be offered initially with cellular communications capability.
Customer samples of this device are available now for trial, and the device
will be commercially available in the third quarter of 2013. This fall, the
satellite and dual-mode versions of the GT 1100 will be commercially available
in conjunction with ORBCOMM’s OG2 next generation constellation launch.

“Based on the strong demand in both domestic and global markets for a
flexible, cost-effective and reliable M2M solution, we see a tremendous
opportunity for ORBCOMM to leverage its 14 years of industry expertise,” said
Marc Eisenberg, ORBCOMM’s Chief Executive Officer. “While most solutions limit
asset visibility to one or two views per day, this innovative solution gives
you many daily reports. We are excited to bring ORBCOMM’s high-performance GT
1100 to market.”

The GT 1100 also includes a robust software application, CargoWatch™, for
comprehensive device management. This web-based application delivers
near-real-time, essential alerts on asset status, location, history, and
arrival/departure, providing complete visibility for fleet and operations

ORBCOMM will unveil the GT 1100 at the CTIA 2013 conference at the Sands Expo
and Convention Center in Las Vegas, NV from May 21-23 at Booth 5335 in the M2M
Zone. This device was recently selected as a finalist in the M2M, Sensors,
RFID and NFC category of CTIA’s Emerging Technology (E-Tech Award)
