ROCHELLE PARK, N.J. -- May 22, 2013

ORBCOMM Inc. (Nasdaq: ORBC), a global provider of Machine-to-Machine (M2M)
solutions, today announced that its GT 1100, a self-powered M2M asset tracking
and monitoring device, was named the winner in the M2M, Sensors, RFID, & NFC
category of CTIA’s 2013 Emerging Technology (E-Tech) Awards. The CTIA E-Tech
Awards honor the industry’s most innovative new wireless products and services
in mobile apps, consumer electronics, enterprise & vertical markets, and
network. Winners were announced at today’s awards ceremony during the CTIA
Conference at the Sands Expo & Convention Center in Las Vegas, NV.

“We are honored that ORBCOMM’s new, powerful GT 1100 M2M solution has won
CTIA’s prestigious award and that we have been recognized for our 14 years of
innovation in the M2M industry,” said Marc Eisenberg, ORBCOMM’s Chief
Executive Officer. “We will continue to develop breakthrough M2M products and
solutions for our key global markets that will enable our customers to operate
smarter and more efficiently than ever before.”

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 1100 is
sensor-compatible and self-powered with solar recharging technology for low
power consumption, which works well for tracking and monitoring other remote
unpowered assets such as construction and mining equipment. The GT 1100 can
also be paired with a robust software application, CargoWatch™, for
comprehensive device management. In addition, the ORBCOMM GT 1100 can support
three modes of communication –satellite, cellular and dual-mode, which blends
satellite and cellular capability.

Nearly 300 entries in the CTIA E-Tech Awards competition were judged by a
panel of highly-respected industry experts, reporters and analysts.
Submissions were scored on innovation, functionality, technological
importance, implementation and overall “wow” factor.
