  • A Successful Launch

    ORBCOMM successfully launched six next generation OG2 satellites aboard a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida at 11:15 am EDT. The OG2 satellites were successfully separated from the Falcon 9 launch vehicle into the proper insertion orbit. The six satellites' solar panels and antennas deployed properly, and they are connecting at ORBCOMM's Gateway Earth Stations around the world.The satellites are expected to be providing full commercial M2M messaging and AIS services 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!
