Lockheed-Martin Incorporates KVH FOGs in its New Positive Train Control System Currently in Development and
Testing

MIDDLETOWN, R.I., Mar 14, 2002 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX/ -- Fiber Optic Gyros (FOGs) manufactured by KVH Industries (Nasdaq: KVHI chart, msgs) are playing a vital role in the development of a next-generation Positive Train Control (PTC) system intended to improve railway efficiency, reliability, and safety. A critical element in any PTC system is precise knowledge of each train's position and speed. To that end, Lockheed Martin Corporation has under development a train location determination system that combines data from the Global Positioning System (GPS), a tachometer, a track database, MEMS accelerometers, and KVH E_Core 2000 FOGs to identify where the train is and on which track it is located at all times. KVH recently delivered 32 additional E Core 2000 FOGs for Lockheed Martin's ongoing PTC development and testing program.

"The demand for a new PTC solution is being driven by the fact that railway managers need to have precise, real-time information regarding the position and motion of every one of the more than 20,000 locomotives and 550,000 freight and passenger cars in service in North America," explained Jay Napoli, KVH's director of FOG and OEM sales. "However, while GPS is a valuable tool, it is not a complete solution for PTC operations. For example, GPS will be blocked when the train is passing through tunnels or beneath thick foliage. As a result, any PTC system needs a supplemental source of precise data. In the case of the Lockheed Martin PTC system, data from various sources, including KVH's E Core FOGs, are combined to provide position, speed, and direction data that is available 100 percent of the time."

E Core FOGs use KVH's proprietary polarization-maintaining optical fiber and fiber components and are highly reliable systems with no moving parts to wear out or require maintenance. FOGs provide extremely precise rotational rate information by measuring the phase difference between two paths of light traveling in opposite directions through the optical fiber. Their precision results in part because of their lack of cross-axis sensitivity to vibration, acceleration, and shock.

In June 2000, Lockheed Martin was awarded a $34 million contract to lead the Illinois Department of Transportation's Positive Train Control Project, a joint initiative of the Association of American Railroads (AAR), the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA), and the Illinois DOT. The PTC system involves the application of advanced technologies -- including digital data communications, accurate positioning systems, wayside interface units, on- board and control center computers, and other advanced display, sensor, and control technologies -- to help manage and control railroad operations.

It is part of a nationwide effort to improve schedule reliability, increase track capacity, enhance safety, and provide the capability for high- speed passenger train service throughout the United States. Certain types of train control systems are required by the FRA for all tracks on which any train will operate at 80 miles per hour or faster. This means that economical, effective train control systems are essential for the success of high-speed rail development in the United States. Similar PTC efforts are also in consideration in the United Kingdom, Canada, Europe, Australia, and Asia.

"Improving the efficiency and safety of our railway infrastructure is vital," Napoli continued. "According to the AAR, railroads operate more than 173,000 miles of track and account for more than 40 percent of all freight transportation in the United States, including 70 percent of all U.S.- manufactured automobiles, 30 percent of the nation's grain harvest, and 65 percent of the coal. Given the demand for increased efficiency, safety, and cost savings, there is the potential for every train in the United States to be equipped with a PTC system."

KVH Featured in Navy Publication Promoting Small Business Research Successes

$1.5 Million in Navy Small Business Research Grants have Helped Generate $55 Million of KVH's Revenues During the Past 10 Years

MIDDLETOWN, RI - September 17, 2001 - The drive to innovate has always been a part of KVH Industries' (Nasdaq: KVHI) culture. While the company has directed a significant percentage of its revenues back into research and development, KVH has also been awarded more than 20 Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) R&D grants valued at $12.2 million from the U.S. government's SBIR program. Based on the success of two of these SBIR awards, KVH is featured in the most recent issue of "Department of the Navy SBIR/STTR Successes," a Naval publication touting the value and success of the Department of the Navy's SBIR and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs.

The SBIR awards highlighted in "SBIR/STTR Successes" contributed $1.5 million to the research that led to KVH's successful development of compass and stabilized attitude heading systems. Through these research efforts, KVH invented compasses capable of sensing the changing magnetic environment and automatically recalibrating themselves to compensate and maintain optimal accuracy. These systems and their successors have been incorporated into a wide variety of KVH products, including stand-alone compass sensors, such as the C100™; land and sea military navigation systems, including the MV103 and TACNAV™ systems; and the GyroTrac™ Digital Gyro Compass, components of which are used in both KVH's award-winning TracVision® and Tracphone® line of satellite communications products.

"SBIR funding has played a tremendous role in the growth of KVH's product line and the company's overall success," commented Chris Burnett, vice president of business development. "The products we developed using these and other SBIR grants have enabled KVH to develop versatile products that have become critical systems for U.S and allied military forces as well as popular commercial products. The two SBIR awards cited by the Navy provided $1.5 million and resulted in more than $55 million in associated revenues for the company over the past 10 years. That's an outstanding return on the Navy's investment."

The SBIR program is designed to provide funding to stimulate technological innovation in small businesses to meet government R&D needs. The competitive, three-phase SBIR system first provides limited funding to evaluate the scientific merit of a specific R&D effort. If the project is selected to continue, additional funding is made available for prototype development and testing. Phase Three supports additional R&D as well as final product production and commercialization. In place since 1982, the SBIR program has funded more than $550 million in research.

KVH Industries, Inc., is an international leader in developing and manufacturing innovative, mobile, high-bandwidth satellite communications systems, tactical navigation products, and fiber optic products. The company is based in Middletown, Rhode Island, and has a fiber optic research and manufacturing facility in Tinley Park, Illinois, and a European sales office in Hoersholm, Denmark.

KVH GyroTrac Helps "PlayStation" Set a Record-setting Course Across the Atlantic

kvh.com
kvh.com


MIDDLETOWN, RI - December 17, 2001 - When the catamaran "PlayStation" passed the Lizard Point Lighthouse in English waters on October 10, 2001, 4 days, 17 hours, 28 minutes, and 6 seconds after leaving New York, it smashed the existing West-to-East Transatlantic record by more than 43 hours. To achieve this stunning time, "PlayStation" carried a crew of 10 men and an arsenal of high-tech systems, including the GyroTrac Gyro-stabilized Digital Compass from KVH Industries (Nasdaq: KVHI).

"All of us at KVH Industries want to congratulate skipper Steve Fossett and his crew on their remarkable achievement," said Jim Dodez, KVH vice president of marketing. "The West-to-East Transatlantic crossing record is one of the premier achievements in the sailing world. That the KVH GyroTrac helped provide the heading and navigation information required to set this mark is a testament not only to the precision offered by GyroTrac but also to its rugged and reliable design. It is a tremendous honor for KVH to be associated with the achievements of skipper Steve Fossett, his crew, and the world record set by 'PlayStation'."

"PlayStation," a 125-foot catamaran, crossed the start line at Ambrose Light, New York, on October 5, 2001. During its passage, it maintained an average speed of 25.78 knots as it covered 2,885 miles. While underway, it also set a new 24-hour speed record, covering 687.17 nautical miles between October 6 and October 7. Serving as navigator during the record run was Stan Honey, executive vice president and chief technology officer of Sportvision Systems and a member of KVH Industries' Board of Directors since 1997.

"The KVH GyroTrac was an invaluable tool during our transatlantic passage," remarked Mr. Honey. "For us to set this mark, we needed to set and follow the most efficient course possible. That meant having precise heading data at all times, regardless of sea state or boat speed. It was a relief to know that we had GyroTrac onboard. The system was exactly what we needed aboard 'PlayStation' to help ensure that our helmsmen maintained our course from start to finish."

Even in the heaviest seas where location and orientation are constantly changing, GyroTrac continually measures and compensates for vessel motion to provide accurate heading data. Consistently stable heading at high speeds and in all sea conditions is provided by a combination of KVH's innovative digital magnetic compass and three-axis gyro stabilization. The self-compensating digital magnetic compass provides a drift-free, long-term heading reference accurate to better than one degree. Momentary compass errors due to shock and sudden accelerations are eliminated by GyroTrac's three-axis rate gyro stabilization.

The self-calibrating GyroTrac offers user-selectable digital and analog outputs, allowing the system to interface easily with other onboard electronics and providing mariners with a single central heading device that can output Magnetic or True North data. Compass errors that often cause many autopilot "steering problems" are dramatically reduced or totally eliminated with the GyroTrac. GyroTrac's stable accurate heading information is also the ideal input for North-up/ARPA radars.

Great work Sector,

That will certainly make it easier for folks to do their DD (if it doesn't scare them away from the sheer volume of info!)

Thanks, Mike

Well, it was 2 years out of date, and I had been meaning to do it for a long time. Now it's done. Hopefully soon David James (the thread creator) will get my request to update the header and do it soon.

What really stands out is the number of products and the number of contracts or partnering announcements. Some people equate "small" with "startup", but that is not true here. Also almost all of the contracts are the start of ongoing relationships, with reorders which we may or may not see depending on size.

For Buy and Hold Investors;

Sector has done all the work right here before your eyes. Now it's important to break the business segments down on a forward looking basis, fundamentals have become for many a waste of time, but not to us.

We think that in the next year KVHI's defense business will continue to grow, this growth will turn the company profitable and expand into the next five years from FOGS in multi applications to deployment of Video distributed to land and sea based military platforms.

While these deployments are taking place, scale able civillian projects will be gaining traction, from increasing market share in the Motor coach market we'll begin to see integrated video systems into the proverbial SUV and Minivan. Few here probably realize that KVHI has this capability, fewer still know that KVHI is already shipping Mobile internet along with satellite programing.

As we already have begun to see DVD players in vehicles to keep the kids occupied, the next 5 years should prove to be the most exciting for the entire automotive industry as new platforms emerge that deliver whole new capability to recreation and business markets like OTR trucking and supply management.

KVHI also has systems in development that will have a material effect on the Power industry, these systems and their current providers are in transition, but like all technological evolutions, change is assured, and as the current state of the art is pressured by high value components and costs savings, KVHI will emerge as a major provider of systems components to these industries as well.

KVHI's trade float is already Scarce; buy and hold investors who understand scarcity know what this means. While many rush headlong into Gold and other instruments of flight, we are finding equally scarce common stocks with huge forward fundamental value, where real earnings and possibly dividends, and liquidity creation, can be become important features of a portfolio.

Stand by, for these are indeed evolutionary times; Stalk the bear.

Thanks again dvdw,

The Yahoo! thread is actually where most of the discussion activity for KVHI takes place. It's another excellent thread. Right now we are discussing the benefits of upgrading the Army Paladin artillery system with smart munitions, rather than spend $9 billion on the new Crusader system that Rumsfeld recently cancelled (or wants to cancel anyway).

Here are today's posts on that topic.
