Remote monitoring for government, military and public safety applications


Enabled remote mobile tracking devices and solutions are used to protect people and monitor vital assets while enabling mission-critical communications around the world.

ORBCOMM-enabled remote mobile tracking and monitoring devices and solutions are uniquely positioned to serve the needs of government agencies, protecting people and vital assets while enabling mission-critical communications in the U.S. and abroad.

Government and Military Asset Tracking
Government agencies and military organizations require dependable communications for reliable remote asset tracking of personnel and mission-critical resources, in and out of cellular coverage.
ORBCOMM is a trusted government provider of vital communications solutions linking key people, vehicles, vessels and equipment regardless of location. Our cellular, satellite and dual-mode devices and applications allow government agencies to track mobile and fixed remote resources in some of the most remote corners of the globe.
Reliably Track Remote Assets & Personnel

  • Reduce costs, improve preventative maintenance and optimize utilization by remotely monitoring generators and other powered or unpowered assets.
  • Communicate with field personnel in dangerous or remote regions and ensure safety. Coordinate the location of friendly units for full situational awareness.

Improve Supply Chain Visibility

  • Secure supply chain by tracking trailers, containers, railcars and ensuring cargo security domestically and internationally.
  • Ensure that supplies arrive on time and enhance border security when moving assets in and out of conflict zones.

Enable Easy Maritime Identification

  • Use satellite AIS data to monitor maritime vessels well beyond coastal regions in near-real-time and cost-effectively.
  • Accurately track vessel position enabling port authorities and government agencies to help prevent environmental disasters, ensure maritime safety and improve emergency response.

Help Prevent Cargo Theft

  • Monitor container doors to detect theft and ensure cargo security.
  • Employ a state-of-the-art fuel monitoring system selected by the Defense Logistics Agency to help prevent theft of mission-critical fuel used by U.S. and NATO forces in Afghanistan.
  • Deliver near-real-time location, fuel level and security status of fuel tankers, and report diversion or tampering/pilferage of fuel so immediate action can be taken.

Emergency Preparedness
ORBCOMM networks and devices provide a reliable way to maintain vital communication links before, during and after extreme weather events and disasters.
Better communication means better emergency preparedness, quicker evacuations, and improved logistics during post-disaster crisis management.
From providing the communication link for flood modelling software, to tracking vehicles and containers during storms, ORBCOMM satellite and satellite-cellular solutions provide an easy and cost-effective way to connect people to vital equipment during times of distress.
Satellite provides a reliable way to transmit routine information before, during and after extreme weather events, and fills in the communication gaps when cellular is no longer an option.
5 Reasons to Add Satellite for Emergency Events Management:

  1. Weather Monitoring: Collect and transmit near real-time data from weather instruments or data loggers connected to sensors.
  2. Warning Systems: Monitor and activate/deactivate siren warning systems, check for status and maintenance issues.
  3. Fleet Management: Maintain GPS tracking of rescue vehicles and enable text-messaging for mobile worker communication.
  4. Post-Disaster Resource Monitoring: Transmit water quality data in real-time when sending crews into dangerous areas.
  5. Cellular Backup: Maintain vital communication links to perform the above tasks, when cellular service is congested or unavailable.
