Jan 12, 2023

Boca Raton, Florida, UNITED STATES ROCHELLE PARK, N.J., Jan. 12, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ORBCOMM Inc., a global provider of Internet of Things (IoT) solutions, today announced that it has been awarded a competitive, multi-year contract by the Argentine Navy for a regional Automatic Identification System (AIS) data subscription used for ship tracking and other maritime navigational and safety efforts.
