ORBCOMM, Savi secure multimillion-dollar order from DoD

ORBCOMM Inc. and Savi jointly announced that the U.S. Department of Defense has placed a multimillion-dollar order with Savi for ORBCOMM telematics products and Savi services.

The order will enable the DoD to track and monitor about 24,000 military assets. ORBCOMM’s high-performance cellular devices will be used along with Savi’s platform to supply in-transit visibility, inventory and logistics data.

“We are pleased to be part of the team selected for this important project by the U.S. Department of Defense, which offers an exciting opportunity to expand our government business,” Marc Eisenberg, CEO of ORBCOMM, said. “The unique combination of ORBCOMM’s best-in-class devices combined with Savi’s real-time asset visibility and analytics software and government experience delivers a quick return on investment for our government customers through a significant reduction in labor associated with the management of these high-value assets.”

ORBCOMM and Savi said they plan to complete deployment of their solutions in the fourth quarter of 2018 and continue working with agency officials to expand solutions to other groups in the DoD.

“Savi is excited to continue our successful partnership with ORBCOMM to fulfill this multi-million-dollar order for the DLA,” said Rosemary Johnston, Senior Vice President of Operations, Savi Technology. “For over 28 years, Savi has been a trusted supplier of active RFID sensor technology to the U.S. Department of Defense and its allied partners, and we are proud to continue supporting their complex asset tracking needs now and into the future.”
