Bob,

Pretty cool. The land application can't be too far away. I think we've got something special here... in the right space at the right time.

I think you're right.NAV TRAC LM internet capable.Now that's the ticket for my Harley. Hehehehe can you imagine going down the road on a Harley and KVHI breaks out 4 point on huge volume. Sounds like a great way to become a grille ornament on a Mack truck!!

This is definitely good news.If you can do it for boats - globally with all their different systems,land in the North American Continent is just a small tweak.However I think they sometimes miss that the large market is / should be the first application.

I may be way off but it appears that they prioritize the tough engineering accomplishment as first order vs the big market in which to be successful in generating a bottomline profit. I'm sure in any entrepreneurial company the trade-off between engineering and marketing is an ongoing tug of war.

Still GREAT NEWS

Bob,

I'm feeling a little guilty about spreading the news this morning. The PR hasn't hit the news wires yet, although is dated yesterday. I see you were on the distribution list, as well. I hope Alice isn't going to get into any hot water over this. I guess they may be waiting for Monday...

They may have been using the marine application as a testing ground for the system.. knowing that if they could perfect it on the briny deep that land applications would be a simple tweak.

After seeing KVHI go up 2 5/16 - I must tell you "guilty was pretty far away from what I was feeling. Hehehe

I think the volume indicates there were more than just you who knew.vbg

This is exciting I'm feeling really good to see our persistence and belief getting rewarded.

Bob,

If you go to this link:

quote.com

Key in the volume indicator in the lower left... as you can see, the volume spiked late Friday, after someone got ahold of the news. I'm not sure the release was totally circulated prior to the close, but watching the streaming bid/ask for a while around 10 minutes before the close, I noticed about 3 bids of 75K-90k shares in the 8.06 range. Obviously, none got filled.

I'm not sure what the earnings are going to look like on Monday, but the product news and outlook will certainly be interesting. I'm still waiting for something in the current sensor market, and an order from the military wouldn't be out of the question.

This is exciting I'm feeling really good to see our persistence and belief getting rewarded

Nicely stated... although, I'm not sure it totally captures the excitement I'm feeling the last few days. >VBG<

KVH Announces 1999 Financial Results; Record TracVision Sales Drive Revenue Increase for 4Q and Year

February 14, 2000 07:34 AM
MIDDLETOWN, R.I.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 14, 2000--KVH Industries, Inc. KVHI today announced financial results for the company's fourth quarter and fiscal year ending December 31, 1999. An increase in revenues for both the quarter and the year was attributable to significant sales of the company's mobile satellite television systems for land vehicles and marine vessels.

"TracVision(R) LM, the land mobile system we introduced in 1999, created a strong consumer demand throughout the year," said Martin Kits van Heyningen, president and CEO. "The land mobile and marine mobile systems together helped us achieve new record revenues for the entire TracVision line."

Revenues for the 1999 fourth quarter increased 17% to $5.5 million from $4.7 million in the comparable 1998 quarter. Communications sales grew more than 83% during the quarter to nearly $3.0 million from $1.6 million in 1998 due to strong sales of the new land mobile satellite television system and to the company's latest marine television system. Strength in communications orders helped offset a decline in navigation sales of 16 percent. Navigation sales declined due to the slow pace of finalizing military orders for tactical systems. A net loss for the 1999 quarter of $1.2 million or $.17 compares to a net loss in 1998 of $1.4 million or $.19 a share.

Revenues for fiscal 1999 totaled $22.8 million, an increase of more than 10% over $20.6 million in 1998. Total annual communications sales increased nearly 73% in 1999 to $11.4 million from $6.6 million in 1998. Navigation sales decreased 18% in 1999 to $11.4 million from $14.0 million in 1998 due to slow sales during the first half of the year and some delays during the second half in finalizing certain military contracts that had been awarded. A net loss of $2.7 million or $.37 a share in 1999 compares to a net loss in 1998 of $2.3 million or $.32 a share.

Quarterly operating expenses increased 17% to $3.4 million in 1999 from $2.9 million in the 1998 quarter. The increase was due to higher research and development costs and the marketing expenses for establishing a presence in the new land mobile market and introducing other new products. Operating losses declined 27% during the 1999 fourth quarter to $1.5 million from $2.0 million in 1998.

Operating expenses for fiscal 1999 increased 11% to $11.8 million from $10.7 million in 1998. The increase is due in large part to marketing expenses for fiber optic products and the new land mobile satellite television system, and to research and development costs related to new-generation navigation and communications products. The 1999 operating loss declined nearly 5% to $4.0 million from $4.2 million in 1998.

KVH is webcasting its 1999 fourth quarter and year-end conference call at 11:30 a.m. Eastern time today through the company's website at kvh.com (select "Company"). The audio also will be archived at the company website shortly after the call is completed.

KVH Sues Datron for Patent Infringement
Key Technology for Mobile Satellite Internet Access

Middletown, RI, February 14, 2000 ? KVH Industries, Inc.(NASDAQ:KVHI) has filed suit in U.S. District Court in Rhode Island against in-motion satellite antenna competitor Datron/Transco, Inc. for infringing a KVH patent. KVH is seeking a court order that would prevent Datron from making or selling products that KVH claims infringe its patent. KVH is also seeking unspecified compensatory damages in the suit, which it wants tripled because of what it considers to be Datron 's willful violation.

"Clearly, Datron was aware that KVH had a patent on this technology," said KVH President and CEO Martin Kits van Heyningen. ?I'm determined not to let our competitors unlawfully use KVH technology and claim it as their own."

The patent at issue (U.S. 5,835,057) deals with using one antenna to receive simultaneously signals from two different types of satellites, such as a television satellite to receive data and a communications satellite to transmit requests for data. KVH considers this a key technology for future products that will bring two-way internet access to mobile customers.

Greetings Thread!

I'll be participating now and in the future. I have completed my DD and opened my position. I will continue to Accumulate shares in KVHI knowing that the fact of KVHI's patents covering the auto tracking of satellites in a moving vehicle represents a cog in a wheel of an explosive market.

Yesterdays press release by Gilat and MS falls directly into our sphere and provides a forward looking view at who our future service providers might be. If gilat accelerates deployment of 2 way higher power systems we will have the birds we need to facilitate the mobile market with our tracking units providing the multiplier for these birds.

As it stands the MS Gilat deal describes their initiative to bring signals to a rural market, thats fine, but it simply does not scale the same as the mobile market.

I look for the true value in Gilat / MS deal to serve the mobile Inet/ video market as being the reason behind this deal. Most hopeful that this little company will have the willingness to recognize the value here and make it happen.

G'day all - I took a small position this morning. Financials are ok. Potentials are great. Still not being discovered. The wireless patent is a great ticket, but the evolution of its fiber optics group may be of potential

best, B
