                Solutions to Government and Commercial Markets

Business Wire

ROCHELLE PARK, N.J. -- October 10, 2013

ORBCOMM Inc. (Nasdaq:ORBC), a global provider of Machine-to-Machine (M2M)
solutions, and Savi Technology (Savi), a leading provider of sensor-based
analytics and radio-frequency identification (RFID) solutions, today announced
a strategic relationship to provide advanced location-based monitoring
solutions to government and commercial markets.

ORBCOMM and Savi have submitted a proposal in response to the U.S. Army RFID
IV project, which will provide both ISO18000-7 RFID tags and a suite of
satellite solutions for military logistics support. ORBCOMM’s GlobalTrak
division has been a leading player in providing military
Enhanced-In-Transit-Visibility (EITV) solutions to the government market since
2008, and Savi has been the de facto market leader in military RFID solutions,
enabling them to offer vast market experience with the right blend of
technology platforms for this proposal.

“The combination of ORBCOMM’s satellite expertise and broad network service
portfolio with Savi’s state-of-the-art RFID technology offers a full spectrum
of innovative monitoring solutions to our collective market base with focus on
our government and international customers,” said Marc Eisenberg, Chief
Executive Officer of ORBCOMM. “Although RFID and satellite tracking have
traditionally been divergent technologies, the synergy of these solutions
within a common operating environment creates a seamless transition from
infrastructure to wireless-based location services for tracking and monitoring
high-value assets.”

“By bringing two market leaders with highly complementary technologies
together, we have created a best-of-breed solution for our customers in both
government and commercial markets,” said Bill Clark, Chief Executive Officer
of Savi Technology. “This relationship will support Savi’s operational
analytics capabilities by providing additional ways to collect critical data
and deliver timely and reliable operational intelligence to our customers. We
look forward to partnering with ORBCOMM on RFID IV and other global
opportunities in the near future.”
