  • OG2 Mission 1 Update: July 15, 2014

    Yesterday's OG2 Mission 1 launch was a success! Our six OG2 satellites were put into the proper orbit and separated as planned. The six satellites' solar panels and antennas deployed properly, and they are connecting at ORBCOMM's Gateway Earth Stations around the world.

    Engineers from SNC and ORBCOMM will spend the next 30 days or so putting the OG2 spacecraft through extensive in-orbit testing (IOT) as planned. At that point, we will focus on communications testing and expect full commercial service to be available within 60 days of launch.

    We'd like to thank SpaceX, SNC, Boeing, Moog, and all of the partners who worked on the OG2 launch program. We'd also like to acknowledge the outstanding ORBCOMM team that worked so hard to launch our first OG2 mission. Lastly, we'd like to thank our shareholders and customers who have been extremely patient while we were preparing for launch. We appreciate your support! We expect to provide the next OG2 update during our second quarter earnings call in early August.

    We are now targeting Monday, July 14 with Tuesday, July 15 as a back-up for launch of ORBCOMM's OG2 Mission 1 pending approval from the Air Force Range. This provides the necessary time to ensure the highest possible mission assurance and allows the Range to complete their previously scheduled maintenance.
