Orbcomm Inc. has completed the acquisition of Comtech Mobile Datacom Corporation’s Sensor Enabled Notification System 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 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 & gas industries. 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.

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