I hope everyone here is aware that during the "quiet periods" on this thread, the Yahoo! KVHI thread is active daily.

KENNEDY OBTAINS $2 MILLION FOR KVH OF MIDDLETOWN TO PRODUCE TECHNOLOGY TO ASSIST SPECIAL FORCES

WASHINGTON – Congressman Patrick J. Kennedy (D-RI) has announced that he has been successful in including $2 million in the House Defense Appropriations Act for KVH Industries of Middletown for its production of digital compass technology for U.S. military Special Forces’ vehicles.
The defense spending bill for Fiscal Year 2002 has been approved by the House Appropriations Committee, of which Kennedy is a member, and will be considered by the full House in the coming weeks.

With the funding, KVH will provide Special Forces’ high-mobility vehicles with an accurate day and night navigation capability, especially in rugged or urban terrain. The system will operate regardless of Global Positioning System in the event that it is blocked due to terrain or intentional interference.

“This special earmark will allow KVH to help dramatically improve the level of tactical war fighting capabilities of our Special Forces, who continue to be on the front lines of our national defense strategy in the war on terrorism,” said Kennedy. “The digital compass represents the next generation of high tech navigation equipment designed specifically to meet the challenges of the most complicated battlefields.”

KVH, with a workforce of about 145 employees, is one of the leading defense contractors in Newport County. The company develops and manufactures innovative sensor-based mobile satellite communications systems and navigation products.

“We are proud to be contributing to the safety and success of the United States’ military forces through the development and fielding of our tactical navigation systems,” remarked Martin Kits van Heyningen, president and chief executive officer of KVH Industries. “This contract is the result of several years of testing and trials, and we greatly appreciate Congressman Kennedy’s enthusiastic and unflagging support throughout the entire process.”

Kennedy had also worked closely with KVH last year to obtain a $1 million appropriation in the Fiscal Year 2001 defense budget to support the Army’s use of the electronic digital compass system.

After the expected full House approval of the new funding, the Senate will consider its defense funding bill. A final defense bill will then be sent to President Bush after a conference of House and Senate members to iron out the differences in the two defense bills.

Special Forces is a new branch for KVH TacNav orders. The military is finally starting to realize their vulnerability to GPS-only solutions. With this realization, and with KVH already designed into Army, Marine and NATO militaries, we should see even more orders following.

Hi Sector,

That works for me. :)

Do you have any idea when KVH will report earnings? Last year I think it was 2/9. We will normally get some PR and a little run before the CC.

Regards,

Roy

Hi Roy,

I wonder if high mobility vehicles are those neat little quad runners you see special forces rolling of into the darkness with??


Max tech for a yamaha huh?? hehehe

I say lets get with the current sensor and tap one of those 500 million dollar markets.

Hello folks. I was reading the Yahoo thread today and had a question whether the modulator works on the "o-e" end of the network as well as it does on the "e-o" end. Here's my post, addressed to Sector, but really just an open question. I know most of you visit both threads, but in case you don't, the link is posted below. Let me know if you have any thoughts.

It looks like those high mobility vehicles are actually several different kinds. See this link. Actual photos at the bottom.

Sector answered my question, which turned out to be a silly question after all. Yet another attempt to poke a hole in KVH fails.

Thanks, Sector!

Keep trying. If there are holes, we want to find and analyze them. The best protection for our investments is to understand as much about the company as we can. The days of buying stock and putting it away in a drawer for 10 years without looking at it are gone.

Hi Bob,

This CC should be most interesting. Hopefully MKVH will be open and forthcoming about the near-term business prospects for the various initiatives, in particular the overdue current sensor.

Maybe the FO modulator will be the catalyst to get that market moving again... cheaper and faster may help pry some the $$$ out of the coffers. I feel the demand is strong in this arena, but the costs are a big issue.

Perhaps we'll find out this week when the numbers will be announced. It seems the military side of the business is saving the day... sounds kind of familiar, doesn't it?

Roy
