Hi Roy,

These guys are very classy and seem to always JUST DO IT THE RIGHT WAY.

I'm thinking aftermarket add ons should be more powerful than the growing new RV market.

Business is good and getting better.

A peach of a stock to own.hehehe

Pioneer Consulting Predicts Total Worldwide Market Opportunity for Broadband Satellite


Market opportunity for broadband equipment manufactures will grow from $0.6 billion in 2001 to $1.6 billion by 2008, says Pioneer Consulting.


Boston/SatNews/ -- Broadband Satellite Access Service Offers the Largest Total Worldwide Market Opportunity for Both Service Providers and Equipment Manufacturers

The current state of the broadband satellite industry is not as bright as many once hoped. In fact, the very viability of the industry is a question. But according to a newly released study by Pioneer Consulting, LLC, the industry can survive. With improvements in the price / performance of broadband equipment and services, a market for global broadband connectivity will emerge.

According to Pioneer Consulting's latest report, Broadband Satellite: Analysis of Global Market Opportunities and Innovation Challenges, the total worldwide market opportunity for broadband satellite service providers will reach nearly $27 billion by 2008 with Broadband Satellite Access service comprising the largest market opportunity for a single Broadband Satellite service, soaring from $336 million in 2001 to $13.4 billion in 2008.

"The growth of broadband satellite services is expected to continue, driven by a rapidly expanding market for high-speed Internet access,"
says Mike Massey, senior market analyst, Broadband Satellite for Pioneer Consulting. "The major constraint to growth will be the relatively high cost of satellite capacity, which hinders broadband satellites competitive capability against alternative technologies.

The Broadband Access sector is also expected to represent the largest market opportunity for equipment manufacturers. The report predicts the aggregate market opportunity for equipment manufactures will grow from $0.6 billion in 2001 to $1.6 billion by 2008 with Broadband Access accounting for a market share worth $1.2 billion.

"Broadband access satellite services will find acceptance primarily in those cases where more cost effective alternatives, such as DSL and cable modem service, are not available," explains Paul Kellett, senior director of research at Pioneer Consulting. "Unlike other broadband access technologies satellite-based broadband connectivity provides ubiquitous coverage."

The Broadband Satellite: Analysis of Global Market Opportunities and Innovation Challenges report takes an in-depth look at the industry's key players, markets and technologies, as well as market opportunities and challenges. The three major broadband satellite service markets - Trunking and Backbone, Mediacasting and Broadband Access - are each analyzed identifying market opportunities for broadband service providers and equipment manufacturers for the major regions of the world - North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America and Africa and the remaining regions of the world - between 2001-2008.

Pioneer Consulting, LLC, headquartered in Boston, Massachusetts, is a leading international market research and analysis firm specializing in global, high-speed telecommunications network market research and technologies. Through its reports Pioneer provides in-depth research and analysis in areas such as: Optical Networking, Submarine Fiber Optics, Broadband Wireless Access, Satellite Systems, Emerging Broadband Access and IP Network Convergence for various Global 500 companies.

KVH Industries and Thrane & Thrane Partner to Sell Inmarsat Products in the U.S.

February 13, 2002 08:16:00 AM ET

MIDDLETOWN, R.I.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 13, 2002-- Companies Extend Existing Relationship to Include New, High-Speed, Two-Way Global Data Communication Systems for Vessels

KVH Industries KVHI announced today that it will be the primary U.S. distributor of marine satellite communications products for Thrane & Thrane, one of the leading manufacturers of Inmarsat global satellite communication systems. Under the terms of this agreement, KVH will distribute Thrane & Thrane's full line of existing Inmarsat maritime products through KVH's nationwide dealer network. In addition, KVH and the Denmark-based Thrane & Thrane will work together to introduce new products geared toward supporting high-speed, two-way data communications in the U.S. maritime market. The first of these KVH-branded products will be introduced at the Miami International Boat Show on February 14, 2002.

"The satellite communication options available to boaters are expanding rapidly," observed Ian Palmer, KVH's vice president of satellite sales. "The addition of new KVH-branded satellite communication systems manufactured by Thrane & Thrane will supplement KVH's award-winning line of TracVision(R) and Tracphone(R) marine products and enable us to meet the voice and data communications needs for virtually any vessel worldwide."

KVH's award-winning Tracphone product line provides access to phone, fax, e-mail, and data services via Inmarsat's mini-M satellite network. Since 1997, Thrane & Thrane has been the exclusive supplier of the Tracphone's transceiver unit. Through this expanded arrangement with Thrane & Thrane, KVH will soon be offering a variety of new systems designed to provide access to other Inmarsat services, including Inmarsat-C, Inmarsat mini-C, and the recently announced Inmarsat Fleet family of satellite communications services.

"We are very pleased to have expanded our existing relationship with Thrane & Thrane to encompass these exciting new products," continued Palmer. "We expect that this will be a valuable step forward for both of our companies."

When asked about its new partnership with KVH, Thrane & Thrane Marine Sales Manager Kim Gram remarked, "We have had a long-standing and very positive relationship with KVH Industries. KVH is the clear leader in the U.S. market for marine satellite communications systems, with an unmatched sales, distribution, and service network, and we are delighted to be working with them to introduce new, next-generation communications systems for mariners."

Thrane & Thrane, founded in 1981, is one of the world's leading manufacturers of terminals and land earth stations for global mobile satellite communication via the Inmarsat system. The company provides equipment for land-based, maritime, and aeronautical use. Thrane & Thrane has manufactured approximately 35 percent of the Inmarsat- compatible systems in use worldwide. Thrane & Thrane has also been selected by Inmarsat to design, develop, and manufacture the ground infrastructure that will be used by Inmarsat's next generation of satellites, scheduled for launch in 2004.

KVH Industries, Inc., is a leading provider of innovative high-bandwidth communications products. Using proprietary fiber optic and satellite antenna technology, the company is developing next-generation systems with greater precision, durability, and versatility for communications, navigation, and industrial applications. An ISO 9001-registered company, KVH has headquarters in Middletown, Rhode Island, with a fiber optic manufacturing facility in Illinois, and a European sales, marketing and support office in Hoersholm, Denmark.

New KVH Tracphone F77 Helps Mariners Stay On-line All the Time Worldwide

Compatible With the New Inmarsat Fleet F77 Service, Tracphone F77 Connects Vessels to E-mail, Internet, and Corporate Intranets

MIDDLETOWN, R.I.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 14, 2002-- Today at the Miami International Boat Show, KVH Industries (Nasdaq: KVHI - news) unveiled the new Tracphone F77 marine satellite communication system. Brought to market in cooperation with Thrane & Thrane, the leading designer of Inmarsat equipment, the KVH Tracphone F77 is fully compatible with Inmarsat's new Fleet F77 service, which provides high-quality voice connections as well as data connections at speeds up to 64 kilobits per second (Kbps). Vessels equipped with the Tracphone F77 can now remain connected at all times around the globe to e-mail services, the Internet, corporate intranets, and Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) thanks to Inmarsat's new Mobile Packet Data Service (MPDS), which bills users based on the amount of data transmitted and received rather than connection time.

``Fleet managers, ship captains, and yacht owners require more than just reliable communication,'' explained Ian Palmer, vice president of satellite sales. ``They need to stay in touch at all times to receive the up-to-the-minute information critical to vessel safety, operation, and business through 'always on' connections and high-speed data transfers, wherever they are worldwide. We are pleased to make this possible now with the introduction of the Tracphone F77.''

Tracphone F77 can switch between two different channels -- MPDS and mobile Integrated Services Digital Network (ISDN) -- to meet a variety of communication needs while providing the most cost-effective options available. Designed for short-burst data transmissions, MPDS is perfect for receiving e-mail, logging onto and working within a company intranet, or browsing the web. And with its ``pay per megabit'' pricing, users are charged only for the amount of the data sent and received, not by connection time. As a result, a vessel can remain connected via e-mail or the Internet 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at no additional cost. The high-capacity mobile ISDN channel provides a constant data stream at speeds as fast as 64 Kbps, making it ideal for phone and fax service, video conferencing, and transmitting large files and images. ISDN usage is charged on a per-minute basis.

``Tracphone F77 is the first product offered as a result of our recent agreement with Thrane & Thrane,'' Palmer continued. ``Tracphone F77 owners will benefit from both KVH's experience in distribution and service and Thrane & Thrane's position as a leading marine satellite communication system designer. For example, Tracphone F77 is prepared for the implementation of the International Maritime Organization's latest distress and safety specifications of the Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS), supporting the accreditation of vessels' systems and ensuring that all distress and safety needs are met.''

Thrane & Thrane has also been selected by Inmarsat to design, develop, and manufacture the ground infrastructure that will be used by Inmarsat's next generation of satellites, scheduled for launch in 2004. With this in mind, the Tracphone F77 was designed to ensure that the antenna was compatible not only with the existing Inmarsat satellites but also the next-generation satellites that will be activated in 2004.

With its fully stabilized antenna and high-impact dome, Tracphone F77 is equipped to withstand the rigorous conditions of life at sea. The Tracphone F77 package includes the antenna, a transceiver, and a telephone handset and cradle. The system's transceiver serves as the hub for all on-line communication via the ship's telephone networks and fax machines. Connected to an IP router, Tracphone F77 can link all shipboard computers to onshore web-based systems, including e-mail and Internet services. With its ``always on-line'' MPDS capability, Tracphone F77 can turn a ship into a fully operational node in a company's worldwide network.

Palmer explained why the Tracphone F77 is a valuable addition to KVH's line of satellite communication products, ``KVH is committed to offering products that connect mariners to the valuable information they require for safety and comfort. We have already established KVH as the leading manufacturer of marine satellite TV and telephone antennas, and true maritime Internet access is the next step. Our new TracNet Mobile High-speed Internet System now enables users to surf the web at speeds up to 400 Kbps throughout the United States, Canada, and their coastal waters. With the addition of the Tracphone F77, KVH has now extended the reach of satellite Internet and data services to mariners worldwide.''

KVH Industries Introduces the eTrac Satellite E-mail System for Maritime Applications

The KVH eTrac Equips Vessels with Worldwide, Affordable Access to E-mail and Real-time Position Reporting

biz.yahoo.com

The compact KVH eTrac, introduced today at the Miami International Boat Show by KVH Industries (Nasdaq: KVHI - news), offers mariners a combination of global e-mail access via the new Inmarsat mini-C system and real-time GPS position reporting, creating a great standalone communications center for leisure craft and an invaluable business tool for any commercial vessel. eTrac's e-mail capabilities and worldwide coverage via Inmarsat mini-C make it the ideal, low-cost solution for vessel owners and fleet managers who need to keep in touch wherever they are worldwide.

``Real-time access to e-mail is a great way for mariners traveling to remote locations to communicate with family, friends, business associates, and other vessels,'' said Ian Palmer, vice president of satellite sales. ``With the introduction of eTrac, KVH Industries has not only made real-time e-mail at sea a reality but we've made it affordable for fleets of vessels as well as individual boat owners.''

Standing less than 6`` high and weighing only 2.4 lbs., the eTrac antenna is a fully integrated unit, containing a transceiver, antenna, and a 12-channel GPS receiver. Brought to market in cooperation with Thrane & Thrane, the leading designer of Inmarsat equipment, the system offers e-mail, position reporting and polling, fax, telex, X.25, mobile-to-mobile communications, non-SOLAS emergency alerting, reception of weather charts, and electronic chart correction. With minimal power requirements and a rugged design, eTrac is the ideal solution for e-mail communication, fleet management, and monitoring. Access to information is made easy through either on-board computers or the optional eTrac Message Terminal.

``The KVH eTrac is an outstanding solution for vessels and fleet managers who need to stay in touch wherever they are worldwide,'' Palmer commented. ``In addition to the e-mail and other data services, eTrac also provides real-time position reporting via its integrated GPS receiver. When combined with fleet management software, you can not only communicate with every eTrac-equipped vessel in the fleet but you can track their position and progress worldwide in real-time.''

Thrane & Thrane, founded in 1981, is one of the world's leading manufacturers of terminals and land earth stations for global mobile satellite communication via the Inmarsat system. The company provides equipment for land-based, maritime, and aeronautical use. Thrane & Thrane has manufactured approximately 35 percent of the Inmarsat-compatible systems in use worldwide.

Hi Roy,

THAT'S INCREDIBLE !!!

This eliminates the second barrier I have to using Trac Phone/Trac Vision.To have real time quotes via the Satellite requires way too much money to be on all the time.

This allows constant contact by "real time alerts".Now I can afford to use.

Now back to my other barrier - To be able to afford that 62 foot Hatteras - I figure I'm 20 points away.

Patience that's all - Patience!!

This really is a "MUST HAVE TOY" for those with every thing.

Trac net,Trac Phone,and Trac Vision - a stable of high growth,high margin products ,growing at a high rate in multiple markets.

That's a win.

JMHO

Bob

Hi Bob,

It always sounds so much better when you say it.

They had a bit on CNBC this morning from the Miami show... basically looking at a $16mm yacht... 198'(?) and unbelievably plush. I was surprised by their estimate of 10% of the price for annual maintenance. Not necessarily for the middle-class, unless you talking about Arab sheiks.

I assume we'll get more press before the CC. Wouldn't you know it... the money flow doesn't look like it will get to 20 this time. gg

Hi Roy,

I stopped drooling when that women said 10 % annual maintanance.

This little picture next to my computer hasn't cost me a penny.

She also said the under 50 was soft this last year and a half - but the big boats have been steady - I guess that puts me squarely in the wannabe category.

Money flow only really comes with EARNINGS and MARGINS.

Back to the Patience part of my post.

I can be Patient.

Thanks for all your keen updates and analysis.

Bob
