ROCHELLE PARK, N.J. -- April 30, 2014

ORBCOMM Inc. (Nasdaq:ORBC), a global provider of Machine-to-Machine (M2M)
solutions, today announced that it will launch six next generation OG2
satellites from Cape Canaveral Air Force Base in Florida aboard a dedicated
SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket scheduled for the morning of May 10, 2014.

ORBCOMM’s OG2 satellites are far more advanced than its current OG1 satellites
and will provide existing customers with significant enhancements, such as
faster message delivery, larger message sizes and better coverage at higher
latitudes, while drastically increasing network capacity. In addition, the OG2
satellites are equipped with an Automatic Identification System (AIS) payload
to receive and report transmissions from AIS-equipped vessels for ship
tracking and other maritime navigational and safety efforts, increasing asset
visibility and the probability of detection for ORBCOMM’s AIS customers.

“Launching our first OG2 mission is an important milestone in advancing our
global satellite network to a higher level of performance, coverage and
efficiency,” said Marc Eisenberg, ORBCOMM’s Chief Executive Officer. “Our
customers are looking forward to our new constellation, which will enhance
their M2M applications, as well as new partnerships in the multiple additional
markets for which OG2 is well suited.”

ORBCOMM anticipates launching the remaining eleven OG2 satellites and enhanced
OG2 services in the fourth quarter of 2014 to complete its next generation
