New Low-profile KVH TracVision L3 Brings Mobile Satellite TV to Vehicles
MIDDLETOWN, R.I.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 6, 2000--People on the road now have the option of receiving hundreds of channels of digital quality news, sports, weather, movies, and music entertainment thanks to the new TracVision® L3 mobile satellite television antenna from KVH Industries (Nasdaq:KVHI - news). When mounted on the roof of a truck, RV, bus, SUV, minivan, or train, the TracVision L3 continuously adjusts for vehicle motion to stay locked on the appropriate satellite signal.

The TracVision L3 delivers programming from DIRECTV®, the DISH Network(TM), or other high-powered DVB-compatible satellite systems worldwide. These new satellite services deliver hundreds of stations of exceptionally high-quality digital programming throughout the continental United States and in parts of Mexico and Canada. Programming includes news, sports, weather, movies, and other entertainment commonly found on cable TV systems. In addition, there are dozens of channels of commercial-free CD-quality music catering to almost every taste as well as Internet-style data broadcast services.

Operation of the TracVision L3 is totally automatic. The TracVision L3's gyro-stabilized antenna accurately and continually tracks the satellites that broadcast television services. At the same time, KVH's integrated DVB technology provides instant and foolproof identification of the satellite being tracked, ensuring that TracVision L3 provides an uninterrupted lock on the satellite transmission. Another benefit of its DVB compatibility is that the system will even switch to a second satellite when necessary to receive local or premium programming broadcasts from a different satellite at another orbital location.

``The introduction of the TracVision L3 marks the first time DVB technology has been integrated into a land mobile system designed for North America,'' remarked Jim Dodez, KVH's vice president of marketing. ``TracVision L3 sets a new standard for in-motion satellite television reception on North American roads and offers a new level of quality, reliability, and versatility to travelers.''

With its minimal 14-1/2`` height and 31'' diameter footprint, TracVision L3 is an attractive addition aboard most vehicles. The stylish, weatherproof, dome is constructed of high-impact ABS plastic, and does not need to be stowed during operation like pop-up automatic systems that often are affected by wind, rust and corrosion. The dome protects the satellite antenna from the elements, assuring years of trouble free operation. The system weighs 33 pounds with all components contained within a flush-mount antenna dome. The entire system can be easily installed in approximately two hours on vehicles pre-wired with power and RF cables. Nationwide service is available through an extensive national support network.

``KVH has established and maintained its leadership position in the marine and land mobile markets by offering customers innovative, high-quality products at attractive price points,'' commented Dodez. ``In the marine industry, KVH has won the prestigious ''Best Product Awards`` from the National Marine Electronics Association (NMEA) for both satellite television and satellite communications products the past three years in a row. Our reliable technology and breakthrough prices on in-motion satellite television systems allowed us to capture well in excess of 60% market share in the RV market within our first year,'' he added.

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.

KVH Industries Wins $4.7 Million Contract to Equip Asian Armored Vehicles with TACNAV
December 12, 2000 09:17:00 AM ET


MIDDLETOWN, R.I.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 12, 2000--KVH Industries KVHI announced today that the company has been awarded a contract to equip the new armored vehicles of an undisclosed Southeast Asian country with KVH's TACNAV(TM) tactical navigation systems. The contract, which is worth approximately $4.7 million over two years, was awarded by the project's prime contractor, which will produce the vehicles in Europe.

"This latest contract for KVH's TACNAV systems is the company's first significant award for an Asian customer, opening the door to a very large military market," commented Christopher Burnett, KVH's vice president of business development. "We've had a lot of interest from customers in a variety of countries throughout the region, but their purchase decisions were delayed due to the economic fluctuations in Asia. With the economic situation stabilizing, we're now seeing customers move forward with their upgrade plans."

KVH TACNAV systems offers every vehicle and every force commander - whether in a command, support, or combat vehicle - 100% availability of position and other tactical data, even if the signals from Global Positioning System (GPS) satellites are disrupted or jammed. In addition to interfacing with the onboard GPS, TACNAV consolidates vehicle location and azimuth, turret angle, and far target location into a single-point interface that can be transmitted via digital Battlefield Management Systems to the force commander and the other units in the field. KVH offers three TACNAV variations: TACNAV Light, for non-turreted vehicles; TACNAV TLS, which is fielded aboard turreted medium forces; and TACNAV FOG, which integrates KVH's fiber optic gyro (FOG) technology with GPS to create a dynamic target location and northpointing system for heavy armored forces.

"This is a milestone contract for KVH," continued Burnett, "as it marks the first time a single customer has used TACNAV and its variations as a modular system to meet the specific needs of a complete armored force. We developed the TACNAV family to serve as a GPS-aided navigation system for the entire spectrum of military vehicles. This contract supports our belief that our strategy is the right one going forward."

KVH's TACNAV product is the most widely fielded tactical navigation system in the world. The company's customers include many NATO countries, including the United States, Canada, Sweden, Britain, Spain and Italy.

"The acceptance of TACNAV among military forces worldwide is a testament to the system's versatility, value, and reliability," Burnett said. "The TACNAV system is used extensively on armored fighting vehicles in the NATO peacekeeping efforts in the Balkans. We have received numerous operational reports from these forces that TACNAV's improved far target location and continuous situational awareness capabilities have prevented friendly fire incidents while significantly enhancing precision border surveillance capabilities."

KVH Industries, Inc. is a leading provider of tactical navigation systems for military vehicles and advanced high bandwidth communications products. Using its proprietary fiber optic technology, the company is developing next generation systems with greater precision, durability, and versatility for communications, navigation, and OEM applications. Its headquarters are located in Middletown, Rhode Island.

KVH files SEC DEF 14

ragingbull.altavista.com

Special meeting to amend the charter to increase the authorized number of shares from 11mm to 20mm....

I feel expansion is likely. If the anticipated demand for the new products is anywhere near what it projected, I doubt the current facilities would be able to keep up. Nice problem to have, but.... Should we expect a secondary offering? or, private placement? or ???? KVH has been sensitive to shareholder value/dilution in the past.

Any thoughts?

Roy

New Low-cost, Low-profile TracVision C3 Sets Standard for Maritime TV Tracking

MIDDLETOWN, R.I.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 18, 2000--KVH Industries, Inc. (Nasdaq: KVHI - news) is pleased to introduce the new KVH TracVision C3, a low-profile, low-cost satellite television antenna that uses the company's integrated Digital Video Broadcasting (DVB) technology for foolproof satellite tracking. Measuring only 14 1/2`` high with a 32'' diameter, the TracVision C3 is an attractive addition aboard hardtop vessels and houseboats that brings mariners high-quality digital programming from DIRECTV, the DISH Network, or other high-powered DVB-compatible satellite systems worldwide.

The low-profile TracVision C3 system delivers digital-quality TV, data, and music signals from high-powered satellite television services such as DIRECTV and the DISH Network to boats throughout the continental United States, whether docked, swinging at anchor, or underway up to 100 miles off the coast. It also works with high-powered DVB-compatible satellites worldwide, including ExpressVu in Canada, and both Astra and Eutelsat in Europe. With TracVision C3 and its preprogrammed library of satellite services, mariners can choose between hundreds of channels of news, sports, movies, and weather in addition to commercial-free, CD-quality music and Internet-style data broadcasts.

``TracVision C3 provides the benefits of our proprietary integrated DVB technology in a lower cost product,'' explained KVH vice president of marketing, Jim Dodez. ``With a suggested retail price of less than $3,500, TracVision C3 is considerably cheaper than comparable 18'' marine antennas while still providing outstanding performance and coverage up to 100 miles off the coast of the continental United States.``

Stabilization is critical to maintaining satellite contact in marine applications where a vessel can be subjected to pitch, roll and yaw. KVH's patented three-axis gyro sensor constantly measures and counteracts vessel motion. At the same time, KVH's integrated DVB technology provides instant and foolproof identification of the satellite being tracked. These two technologies ensure that TracVision C3 provides an uninterrupted lock on the satellite transmission, regardless of the vessel's motion. TracVision C3's DVB compatibility also permits the system to switch to a second satellite when necessary to receive local or premium programming broadcast from a different satellite at another orbital location.

``KVH has established and maintained its leadership position in the mobile marine communications industry by developing innovative and quality products that provide superior service and reliability while meeting the evolving demands for advanced technologies,'' continued Dodez. The company's stabilized antenna technology was recognized recently when the National Marine Electronics Association (NMEA) presented its Best Satellite Television System award to a KVH TracVision system for the third year in a row.

``We are tremendously proud of the recognition NMEA has given us,'' Dodez said, ``as the recipients of these annual awards are selected by a vote of marine electronics dealers, distributors, and other industry professionals to highlight excellence in design, performance, and reliability in marine electronics products.''

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.

Roy,

Have you seen what KVHI has done since I bought it? Ouch. Overall market tenor be damned, I'm taking credit for this precipitous fall. I'm also starting to smell a bottom (although perhaps that is from last night's burritos and negra modelo) so I may add to my KVHI stash. You longs are on notice!

To the thread, thanks for the insight on this little gem. I look forward to outperforming in '01. I hope that you all get to take the time to enjoy the holidays.
