Orbcomm Acquires The SENS Asset Tracking Operation
by Staff Writers
Rochelle Park, NJ (SPX) Oct 07, 2013


SENS provides secure tracking and messaging products and services to the government, defense, transportation, logistics, and oil and gas industries, all of which are key vertical markets for ORBCOMM.

ORBCOMM has announced that it has completed the acquisition of Comtech Mobile Datacom Corporation's (Comtech) Sensor Enabled Notification System (SENS) operation, which includes satellite hardware, network technology and web platforms.

SENS is a market leader in providing one-way satellite products and services to more than 20,000 subscribers worldwide.

This acquisition supports ORBCOMM's multi-network operator strategy and strengthens ORBCOMM's position as the leading provider of satellite and cellular communications for the M2M industry.

In addition, this opportunity complements ORBCOMM's recently acquired GlobalTrak business, which uses Comtech's SENS technology for its military container tracking applications in Pakistan and Afghanistan, its fuel monitoring program in support of the Defense Logistics Agency as well as other global deployments.

SENS provides secure tracking and messaging products and services to the government, defense, transportation, logistics, and oil and gas industries, all of which are key vertical markets for ORBCOMM.

The SENS system, which consists of satellite-based tracking devices, a network hub and an Internet-based back-office platform, enables customers to retrieve and view critical data from the field via the Globalstar satellite network.

"The SENS acquisition expands ORBCOMM's portfolio of services by adding new offerings to our existing suite of satellite and cellular network services," said Marc Eisenberg, Chief Executive Officer of ORBCOMM.

"We see this market segment growing rapidly based on customers that can benefit from the Globalstar network's reliable, low-power, low-cost, one-way satellite data service for short messaging along with its unique advantages in power management."

ORBCOMM will integrate the SENS operation and continue to support existing SENS customers, while marketing SENS products and services through ORBCOMM's global distribution channels.
