Long Life, Low Cost Satellite Solution Delivers Supply Chain and Logistics
Tracking for Military, Government and Commercial Markets
ATLANTA, Oct. 23 /CNW/ -- Numerex (Nasdaq: NMRX), a leading single-source
provider of solutions and networks for Machine-to- Machine (M2M) applications,
today announced the commercial release of the OrbitOne SX1 solution, a
breakthrough in satellite-based asset monitoring and tracking technology.
Operating on Globalstar's Low Earth Orbit (LEO) simplex satellite data
network, the OrbitOne SX1 provides GPS visibility, event monitoring and asset
management data on a near global basis.
Developed by Orbit One Communications, Numerex's recently acquired
satellite solutions business, the SX1 is one of the smallest satellite
communication devices in the industry with a footprint of only 7.25 x 3.25 x 1
inch (184 x 83 x 25 mm) and weighs a mere 13 ounces (369g). Delivering up to
seven years of uninterrupted service on a field-replaceable battery, or
operating on line power, the SX1 provides mission critical reliability under
the harshest environmental conditions. Certified and manufactured to exceed
IP68, NEMA 6P, and MILSTD 810 environmental specifications, the highly-
ruggedized device can be installed, activated and operational in less than one
For systems integrators the SX1 provides a reliable and open data
architecture compatible with virtually any legacy supply chain, logistics or
tracking application making it the ideal choice for the security, management
and tracking of military, government or commercial assets such as inter-modal
shipping containers, trailers, buoys, or barges. The OrbitOne solution is
also capable of providing global supply chain logistics visibility, resulting
in reduced demurrage, increased security and minimized fleet downtime.
"We are very excited about the launch of OrbitOne SX1, which we believe
is a ground-breaking achievement. The solution provides our military,
commercial and government clients with true visibility of their mobile assets
nearly anywhere in the world - we think of it as Global RFID," comments
Stratton Nicolaides, chairman and CEO of Numerex. "For large scale and global
deployment OrbitOne offers one of the most cost-effective solutions available
and complements our existing cellular tracking and monitoring platforms. The
solution also extends our global reach and positions Numerex to offer our
military, commercial, and government customers a broader range of device and
network communication options."
Originally developed and deployed for the military and disaster response
communities, the SX1 expands the satellite and cellular network services that
are monitored and managed through the company's TAV (Total Asset Visibility)
application. This comprehensive tracking and monitoring solution provides
secure mapping, display, and management tools for tens of thousands of global
assets from any internet connection worldwide. In the next few months Numerex
intends to introduce an accompanying portfolio of sensor options to meet
customer demands for additional real-time security and intelligent monitoring.
Orbit One Communications, the developer of the SX1 and TAV Software, was
recently acquired by Numerex. The company is a recognized leader in satellite
tracking solutions that offer visibility and event monitoring for emergency
management, global supply chain logistics, and field asset and personnel
tracking. Orbit One is the supplier of satellite tracking solutions to DHS-
FEMA, the American Red Cross and prime contractors to federal and state
agencies for disaster and emergency response operations.
The SX1 is commercially available now through Orbit One Communications
LLC, a wholly-owned Numerex subsidiary, with a multi-year warranty to end
users, systems integrators and value added resellers. For additional product
