US: Orbcomm and Savi Technology (Savi), have announced a strategic relationship to provide advanced location-based monitoring solutions to government and commercial markets. Orbcomm and Savi have submitted a proposal in response to the US Army RFID IV project, which will provide both ISO18000-7 RFID tags and a suite of satellite solutions for military logistics support.
“The combination of Orbcomm’s satellite expertise and broad network service portfolio with Savi”s state-of-the-art RFID technology offers a full spectrum of innovative monitoring solutions to our collective market base with focus on our government and international customers,” said Marc Eisenberg, Chief Executive Officer of Orbcomm.
“Although RFID and satellite tracking have traditionally been divergent technologies, the synergy of these solutions within a common operating environment creates a seamless transition from infrastructure to wireless-based location services for tracking and monitoring high-value assets.”
“By bringing two market leaders with highly complementary technologies together, we have created a best-of-breed solution for our customers in both government and commercial markets,” said Bill Clark, Chief Executive Officer of Savi Technology.
