transportation, financial and healthcare at the federal, state and municipal
We are also eligible as a US SBA 8(a) Business to participate in the Small Business Administration’s (SBA) various programs for contracting opportunities throughout the Federal Government.
Open systems of data management are increasingly being adopted by both public
and private sector entities for reasons of cost, accuracy and efficiency.
The current administration has challenged Federal information technology managers
to explore more open systems. Federal managers face a compelling need to
understand the differences between traditional approaches to information
technology and the increasingly important open approaches.
Somat presents innovative approaches to dealing with both the business and
technical issues related to open system options and can help your organization
overcome integration challenges with your traditional hardware and software
systems. We are a Microsoft Partner and are experts in all major Microsoft

Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS)
Somat has partnered with Motorola
to help provide high-speed communications technologies that are the driving
force behind many of the world’s most successful ITS systems. Motorola
networks enable widespread automated collection of data at the roadside and from
vehicles. Government Departments of Transportation, transit agencies and
commercial transportation organizations worldwide are already relying on the
numerous benefits provided by Motorola ITS solutions. Somat has also
partnered with e-Plate Ltd., the leader in Electronic Vehicle Identification
using active RFID tagging. Federal, state and local governments are
looking to tagging to optimize the use of road space, reduce non-compliance,
combat vehicle crime and fight terrorism.
Today’s highly advanced wireless technologies are a primary enabler in the
sky-rocketing growth of ITS. Comprehensive monitoring and management of large
scale, widespread transportation systems have been hampered when only wired
systems are in place. By extending real-time data collection and monitoring to
encompass entire transportation systems, wireless broadband equipment enables
more efficient, more cost-effective roadway, railway and other transportation
