KVH Pact with River Park Teams Industry Leaders In Satellite TV Systems for In-motion Vehicles

August 23, 1999 02:35 PM
MIDDLETOWN, R.I.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 23, 1999--KVH Industries, Inc. has selected River Park, Inc., of Elkhart, Indiana, as a distributor for the TracVision(R) LM in-motion satellite television system. River Park, Inc. will market the land mobile antenna system to its OEM customers and network of retail dealers throughout the Midwest.

"River Park is the country's leading supplier of in-motion satellite systems to the recreational vehicle industry," reported Ian Palmer, KVH satellite sales director. "They are very careful in selecting products that will exceed their customers' expectations, and we are delighted that they are now offering our new TracVision LM."

TracVision LM is an effective, reliable and affordable system that maintains satellite contact in mobile environments by sensing vehicle motion and automatically adjusting the antenna position. Prior to the development of TracVision LM, the most affordable and commonly used options for recreational vehicles and motor coaches in the United States were automatic acquiring or crank-up units that could receive satellite television only while the vehicles were at rest. The only in-motion system that was previously available reportedly had performance issues and cost nearly 40% more than TracVision LM.

"We have achieved a dominant position in the land mobile market within only four months of introducing TracVision LM," said Martin Kits van Heyningen, KVH president and CEO. "This is ample evidence that there was an unmet demand for cost-effective and reliable on-the-road entertainment. KVH was able to meet the challenge of delivering such a system for land vehicles by building upon our experience in designing stabilized television and telephone systems for the marine industry, where we are a world leader for such products."

"Our OEM customers have been asking for an in-motion satellite television system which is both reliable and affordable," said Steve Bollero, vice president of operations of River Park. "With the KVH TracVision LM, we believe we've found the product which will exceed our customers' expectations at a price point significantly lower than we've been able to offer in the past."

Bollero is directing KVH marketing and sales activities at River Park. Since 1981, River Park has been distributing high-quality, high-value, mobile electronics from such leading manufacturers as Sony, Samsung, Quasar, and Bose. By offering superior products and world-class customer support that consistently exceed customer expectations, River Park has become a leading distributor of electronic components to manufacturers of van conversions, recreational vehicles, motor coaches and limousines.


KVH uses its proprietary autocalibration, sensor and fiber optic technologies to develop and market a range of products, from mobile satellite communications systems for land and sea to navigation systems for military and commercial applications. KVH has its headquarters in Middletown, RI, and additional offices in Illinois, Florida and Denmark.

Camping World Selects TracVision LM For1999 Best New Product Award

October 6, 1999 03:50 PM
MIDDLETOWN, R.I.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 6, 1999--Camping World, the world's largest retailer of recreational vehicle (RV) accessories and supplies, has chosen the TracVision(R) LM from KVH Industries, Inc. KVHI as the first in-motion satellite television system to be offered through its catalog and stores. At its recent Vendor Co-op Meeting in Bowling Green, Kentucky, Camping World also named TracVision LM Best New Installation Product for 1999.

"It is an honor to be recognized in two major ways by a company with Camping World's presence in the RV industry, especially since this is a totally new market for us," said Martin Kits van Heyningen, KVH president and CEO. "We already are experiencing increased visibility for TracVision LM since Camping World included the system in a catalog mailing to its database of over 2 million people and after we began placing displays in their 30 retail stores. To be selected Best New Installation Product by Camping World is an added distinction for TracVision LM."

TracVision LM is a low-cost system that delivers direct broadcast satellite (DBS) programming to a range of recreational and other vehicles travelling the roads of North America. Drivers and passengers can receive hundreds of TV and music channels from DIRECTV(R) and the DISH(tm) Network whether a vehicle is on the road or at rest. KVH also expects to add broadcast Internet access in the near future for real-time news, stock market data and weather information.

"Reliability and price were our key criteria in evaluating and selecting TracVision LM," said Merchandise Manager Ron Ray of Camping World. "TracVision LM is the first in-motion system to meet our standards for quality and affordability, and initial sales indicate our customers consider this a highly desirable product. Our Best New Product Award to KVH recognized both the fine execution of a promising product idea and the introduction to our market of a high-quality system with exceptional support and on-time deliveries."

TracVision LM is an effective, reliable and affordable system that maintains satellite contact in mobile environments by sensing vehicle motion and automatically adjusting the antenna position. Prior to the development of TracVision LM, the most affordable and commonly used options for recreational vehicles and motor coaches in the United States were self-acquiring or crank-up units that could only receive satellite television when a vehicle was still.

The proprietary sensor and software technologies KVH has incorporated into TracVision LM function automatically to acquire satellite contact, maintain pointing with 1(Degree) accuracy and actively track satellite signals at rates exceeding 30(Degree) per second. To meet the challenge of delivering cost-effective, stable, in-motion satellite reception for land vehicles, KVH built upon its experience in designing stabilized television and telephone systems for the marine industry, where the company is a world leader.

TracVision LM is the smallest in-motion land system available and retails for $2,995 (not including TVs, receivers or installation). The system weighs about 33 pounds with all components inside a flush-mount antenna dome that can be easily installed in approximately two hours on vehicles pre-wired with power and RF cables. Nationwide service is available through an established support network. The market KVH is targeting with TracVision LM includes 8.6 million RVs. In addition, owners of 1.7 million trucks, 100,000 private buses, and millions of SUVs, vans and mini-vans are potential TracVision LM customers.

Camping World established its Vendor Co-op program in 1989 to build relationships with vendors and channel resources. KVH is working with Camping World to train its salespeople, technicians and catalog call center representatives on TracVision LM features and installation procedures. The two companies also are coordinating retail and catalog marketing efforts.

Camping World's headquarters is in Bowling Green, Kentucky, and the company has annual sales of over $200 million. The company has been providing RV products and services since 1966, and it now offers a variety of benefits ranging from product discounts through the President's Club to low-cost insurance, a service plan, and emergency roadside assistance. To contact Camping World, call 800-838-1923 or visit its website at www.campingworld.com.

KVH Industries, Inc. manufactures and markets digital navigation systems and mobile satellite communication products for use in commercial, military, and marine applications. The company's headquarters are in Middletown, RI, and additional offices are located in Hoersholm, Denmark, Tinley Park, Illinois, and St. Petersburg, Florida.

Bob,

What did you find out about the earnings? There's a little volume so far today and it appears to be mostly buys. Nothing spectacular, but it could be a start... :)

Company Press Release

Third NATO Power Selects KVH TACNAV

MIDDLETOWN, R.I.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 12, 1999--In a move to equip its armored vehicles for the upcoming requirements of the digital battlefield, the United Kingdom (U.K.) Army has ordered its first supply of TACNAV(TM) systems from KVH Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ:KVHI - news). The initial order, valued at nearly $500,000, will be installed on vehicles that the U.K. is using in Europe. The U.K. joins Sweden and NATO members Canada and the U.S. in using TACNAV systems for targeting and positional applications in military fleets.

A digital battlefield capability, which is being developed by several NATO members, requires constant awareness of the precise positions of both friendly and adversarial troops. With that knowledge, commanders can accurately pinpoint and direct fire at targets without endangering their own troops. Unlike other military forces that use only Global Positioning System (GPS) data for position information, U.K. Army units with TACNAV systems will not be susceptible to data losses if terrestrial interference or hostile activity causes GPS signal interruptions.

TACNAV systems integrate with a vehicle's GPS to ensure that positional awareness and knowledge of far target location is 100 percent available to force commanders. The U.K. Armored Trials and Development Unit carried out a lengthy assessment of the KVH TACNAV system as part of a wider Digitization Awareness Program.

''This order represents the first deployed use of TACNAV systems by the U.K., and it is an honor to have our system selected for this important military upgrade,'' said Martin Kits van Heyningen, president and CEO. ''We believe that our systems will once again demonstrate their ability to enhance military efforts, as they did for U.S. troops in Operation Desert Storm.''

TACNAV is a digital compass-based tactical navigation system designed to bring together all of the data needed by an armored vehicle crew. Information from each of the vehicle's sensors, including the GPS, laser rangefinder, turret angle encoder and odometer, plus the precise heading data, is clearly presented in bold graphics on driver's and commander's displays. In addition, TACNAV integrates data from the vehicle's odometer and heading sensor to generate accurate dead reckoning data should the GPS fail. As a result, crews are ensured complete availability of essential data that can help military forces maintain viability on today's highly technical battlefields.

In the U.S., TACNAV systems are widely used by the Army and Army National Guard. In addition, the U.S. Marine Corps selected the company's TACNAV Light navigation system for a rebuild of its fleet of AAV 7s (amphibious assault vehicles). TACNAV Light systems provide precise tactical navigation capabilities on military vehicles that don't require the turret pointing features of TACNAV systems for heavy armored units.

TACNAV systems also were selected for impending advanced tests of the digital battlefield system as a key component in the U.S. Army's Task Force XXI Battle Command Brigade and Below (FBCB2) program. The Task Force XXI program will provide battlefield commanders comprehensive, real-time digital information, electronic coordination, and situational awareness through an integrated tactical computer system. For the project to succeed, it is critical that the Army computer and communications systems know at all times the exact location of each military vehicle in a battlefield arena. An integrated TACNAV system provides the essential backup to GPS and assures 100 percent position availability. TACNAV is being tested and evaluated for possible implementation in the U.S. Army's digital battlefield management system.

KVH uses its proprietary autocalibration, sensor and fiber optic technologies to develop and market a range of products, from mobile satellite communications systems for land and sea to navigation systems for military and commercial applications. The company has its headquarters in Middletown, RI, and additional offices in Illinois, Florida and Denmark.
