Orion Labs’ groundbreaking real-time communications platform will enable Federal Resources to address the growing demand for voice-powered solutions

Stevensville, MD - June 15, 2017 – Federal Resources, a leading provider of Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance & Reconnaissance (C4ISR) solutions, today announced a partnership with Orion Labs, a voice company revolutionizing push-to-talk communications. This partnership allows Federal Resources to offer Orion Labs’ innovative push-to-talk solution to federal, state and local government organizations throughout the United States and Canada.

Partnering with Orion Labs will allow Federal Resources to offer its customers a groundbreaking approach to real-time communications. Orion Labs’ smart wearable walkie-talkie, Onyx, and real-time voice service simplify communication and collaboration for teams through secure one-to-one and one-to-many instant push-to-talk functionality across any distance, over any cellular data or Wi-Fi network, anywhere in the world. Paired with the same iOS and Android phones that users carry with them today, the Orion Labs solution also gives teams the ability to see real-time location and availability of team members for more effective coordination.

“Real-time communications among our customers remains an important aspect of day-to-day operations. Orion Labs’ innovative approach to the category of a powerful, secure voice platform coupled with a highly functional and easy-to-use smart wearable device will be a game-changer for many of our customers,” said Rob McWilliams, CEO of Federal Resources. “Our customers already trust us to offer state-of-the-art solutions for their specialized teams; we’re doing that now for the traditional push-to-talk category with this strategic partnership with Orion Labs.”

“Our partnership with Federal Resources is one that’s very close to our hearts as Orion Labs’ mission to connect the world by voice was driven by our own experiences using traditional radios,” said Jesse Robbins, CEO of Orion Labs and volunteer firefighter. “The ability for heads-up, real-time, secure communications between teams no matter where they are in the world is transformative for organizations. We’re delighted to be working with Federal Resources to bring our solutions to their customers.”

Federal Resources will be showcasing Orion Labs’ Onyx at the Hazmat Conference 2017 in Baltimore, MD from June 15 - 18.
