Hello Nautilus Crew, You’re Connected

KVH and Ocean Exploration Trust announce partnership enabling Nautilus research crew to have Internet and daily news content while at sea

MIDDLETOWN, R.I., Oct. 04, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- KVH Industries, Inc., (Nasdaq:KVHI), today announced a partnership with Ocean Exploration Trust (OET), the international scientific research organization founded by RMS Titanic discoverer and renowned oceanographer Dr. Bob Ballard, to provide services and products to enhance the onboard experience for OET’s research team. In exchange, the team will provide firsthand feedback on various products that KVH develops.


“I am thrilled to be working with KVH, a leader in satellite communications headquartered right across the bay from the Inner Space Center at the University of Rhode Island Graduate School of Oceanography,” says Dr. Ballard. A professor of oceanography at URI, Dr. Ballard is known for his ocean exploration efforts and his longtime commitment to providing real-time data and video from the vessel to land. “It’s been a dream of mine to have super high-speed data capabilities right from our vessel to reach the next generation of scientists and engineers and keep our own research team as connected as possible.”

For the first phase of KVH’s support, coinciding with OET’s 2017 expedition in the Eastern Pacific Ocean, a KVH TracPhone® V7-IP satellite communications antenna system has been installed on the 64-meter OET exploration vessel (E/V) Nautilus, and is providing high-speed broadband connectivity from KVH’s mini-VSAT Broadbandsm network for crew use, as well as multicasting daily news content to the 48 researchers and crew via KVH’s IP-MobileCastTM content delivery service.

Having personal access to broadband data and daily news updates while on a research expedition enhances the onboard experience for the Nautilus team, which typically restricts use of its broadband data to conveying research information and video to land.

“It is an honor for KVH to support the fascinating work of the Ocean Exploration Trust,” says Brent Bruun, KVH’s chief operating officer. “Dr. Ballard and his team onboard the Nautilus represent not only the leading edge of scientific research, but also an incredible inspiration to students and adults alike who long to see and understand the ocean’s mysteries.”

The TracPhone V7-IP system installed on the Nautilus is a rugged, compact, 60-cm diameter Ku-band antenna system designed to provide data at speeds up to 3 Mbps shore-to-ship, and 512 Kbps ship-to-shore. The content that KVH is multicasting to OET’sNautilus team via the IP-MobileCast service includes NEWSlinkTM Print – daily updates of more than 65 national editions in more than 20 languages covering news, sports, business, and entertainment topics.

Other services and products that KVH is planning to provide to OET include access to KVH’s VideotelTM maritime training programs and access to new Internet of Things (IoT) maritime applications that KVH is developing.

The 2017 Nautilus Expedition represents the third year of exploration in the Eastern Pacific Ocean, and is one of the most extensive seasons to date. The Nautilus is documenting and surveying unexplored regions from British Columbia, Canada, along the West Coast of the United States, to Baja California, Mexico.

On page 12, in the October edition of The Digital Ship, thedigitalship.com, MKVH confirms HTS changes are coming before year end with data rates in the 10 MBPS range. This is, by far, the most open he has been about the HTS strategy and the time line. It’s likely an official announcement will be at the FLIBS or METS. We are finally at the end point of the bleeding related to satcom.

On a more somber note, TacNav is likely to be a drag on Q4 considering we haven’t heard anything. I’ve said this before, I think we were played. What this means is that Q4 guidance will likely be pulled down to the very low end of guidance. There is no possible way for satcom to make up the difference. When Martin was referring to growth in out years, he strategically has set things up so the bar is very low.

I believe today is 2 1/2 year high. Now, next stop, to the high $13's.

Need to see more volume and of course some really good news and cc.

I think we need to be a little cautious about this stock movement with no news to back it up. We know the HTS hardware is coming and CaaS is likely doing well but we still have q4 guidance to contend with. Without TacNav, there is a high probability of KVH guiding lower. CaaS will not have a meaningful enough impact until Q1.

I think all we really need to hear is that CaaS is doing well. TACNAV will hit some time and I don't think it matters when if CaaS is hitting out of the park. With the stock market looking 6 months ahead and for growth, CaaS should be adding to both the top and bottom lines by then.

Monday was a closing high, but the stock hit a high of $12.75 on Dec. 28, 2016. Going back before these 2 1/2 year highs, it had traded in a $12 - $16 trading range for 3 years from 2012 to 2015. That's the range I would like to see a breakout from!

The deep discount promotions are back. Color me skeptical but I’m not sure we are in home run territory yet. I just don’t believe that happens until HTS is live.

I’m also in agreement that we can’t call this a real breakout until we see sustained pricing over $16.

Breakout will be a close above $15.65 on above normal volume. If we continue to go higher, upper $13'a low $14's is a lot of overhead. As I said $12.55 was a new 2 1/2 year closing high, not a breakout.

Waiting patiently to see if the earnings is again a blow out over what they suggested for earnings. Martin has suggested that they have several programs that can make this happen.

Lets hope this new 2 1/2 year new high keeps us out of the single digit numbers again.

KVH Launches New High-speed Maritime Network on Intelsat EpicNG Satellites

Teams with leading satellite operator Intelsat to deliver expanded global Ku-band coverage

MIDDLETOWN, R.I. and LUXEMBOURG, Oct. 31, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- KVH Industries, Inc., (Nasdaq:KVHI), today announced the launch of its next-generation, advanced maritime broadband network, joined by service partner, Intelsat S.A.(NYSE:I). Slated for commercial availability next month, KVH’s high-speed overlay to its current mini-VSAT BroadbandSM service is expected to triple, and in some cases increase by a multiple of six, the data speeds for its maritime customers.


At the core of its capabilities, KVH’s advanced maritime broadband network will incorporate Intelsat Epic satellite services and the award-winning IntelsatOne Flex platform, a global managed service designed to optimize bandwidth allocations and provide flexible coverage where it is needed. KVH’s mini-VSAT Broadband network is also expected to benefit from increased Asian satellite capacity from SKY Perfect JSAT.

At launch, KVH will have the largest maritime Ku-band network offering speeds as fast as 10 Mbps to each terminal. Each Intelsat Epic satellite has 25-60 Gbps of capacity, which is expected to deliver a major performance enhancement for KVH subscribers. KVH’s enhanced service is designed to enable significant improvements in business productivity in the commercial maritime world, and enrich the onboard experience for superyachts and recreational boats.

“Intelsat has been instrumental in helping us develop the advances to our mini-VSAT Broadband service, continuing the positive working relationship we’ve had for many years,” says Brent Bruun, KVH chief operating officer. “We expect to provide our maritime customers with increased data speeds at the same price points as our current service, while offering unparalleled coverage on a global basis. We just celebrated the 10th anniversary of our market-leading VSAT solution, and, with this new evolution of our mini-VSAT Broadband network, we believe KVH is continuing to set the pace for maritime satellite communications.”

The new, advanced mini-VSAT Broadband network will include southern Atlantic and southern Indian Ocean capacity, which is the primary driver for an expansion of KVH’s already industry-leading Ku-band coverage by 25 million square miles.

“Broadband connectivity is transforming how the maritime sector operates. We built upon our leading maritime broadband infrastructure by designing the Intelsat Epic platform and IntelsatOne Flex for Maritime services to support our maritime customers’ growth objectives,” says Mark Rasmussen, Intelsat’s vice president and general manager, mobility. “We have simplified the integration of high-performance broadband services into a network and made bandwidth management easier. KVH, as the inaugural partner for IntelsatOne Flex for Maritime, plans to use our global maritime fabric to unlock new and larger applications for their end users while also providing the same high-quality broadband service wherever operations take them.”

KVH’s previously fielded base of TracPhone V7-IP mini-VSAT Broadband systems is easily upgradeable to take advantage of the higher network speeds and improved global coverage of the advanced network. However, existing customers do not need to upgrade if they don’t need the higher speeds and improved coverage.

KVH’s mini-VSAT Broadband service provides a complete end-to-end solution for the maritime market, including: global connectivity; TracPhone® V7-HTS and the TracPhone V-IP series satellite antenna systems; the KVH OneCareTM service and support program; the innovative IP-MobileCastTM content delivery service; award-winning VideotelTM maritime training programs, which are in use on more than 12,000 commercial vessels globally; and, crew welfare content, including the NEWSlinkTM daily news service in use on more than 9,000 vessels worldwide.

KVH TracPhone V7-HTS System Delivers Maritime Broadband at Triple Previous Speeds for a New Era of Digital Life at Sea

The new 60 cm, Ku-band satellite antenna system enables leisure boaters and commercial mariners to stream HD content and conduct video calls at sea while simultaneously supporting a free, unlimited use data channel

MIDDLETOWN, R.I., Oct. 31, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- An advanced, 60 cm marine satellite antenna system designed to consistently deliver the fastest data speeds globally to the maritime market will be unveiled tomorrow by KVH Industries, Inc.(Nasdaq:KVHI), at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, in Florida. The TracPhone® V7-HTS achieves data download speeds of up to 10 Mbps, three times faster than current 60 cm models on the market, including KVH’s own system, and fast enough to enable the streaming of HD-quality content at sea.

In addition, to further meet the demands of increased data usage at sea, KVH is offering the TracPhone V7-HTS with new hybrid airtime plans that deliver a free, lower-speed unlimited use data channel that runs at the same time as the high-speed data channel.

The faster data speeds of the TracPhone V7-HTS are accomplished by a combination of KVH’s proprietary antenna system design and industry-leading mini-VSAT Broadbandsm network, which recently began using advanced Intelsat Epic satellites for high throughput satellite (HTS) capabilities, and additional capacity from SKY Perfect JSAT satellites. With the HTS network, KVH added 25 million square miles to its global maritime Ku-band high-speed connectivity footprint.

With the combination of fast data streaming and global coverage, the TracPhone V7-HTS is poised to transform the use of broadband at sea. For the leisure market, the system is designed to enable yacht owners and their guests to enjoy HD streaming, popular social apps, and other benefits of connectivity for a new era of digital life at sea.

The captain of a 44.8-meter superyacht, who is one of the first to use the system, reports: “We just voyaged from Florida to Panamawith the new TracPhone V7-HTS onboard, and enjoyed excellent speeds of 10 Mbps. This is a great service for a superyacht demanding higher data speeds than a traditional VSAT can provide,” says Bryan Antill, captain of the M/Y Surina.

For the commercial maritime market, the TracPhone V7-HTS is designed to enable merchant fleets to take advantage of cloud-based software programs, remote system monitoring, and data analytics in the pursuit of digitalization. With applications such as remote system monitoring requiring frequent data uploads, the TracPhone V7-HTS provides upload speeds of up to 3 Mbps, six times faster than KVH’s current 60 cm system.

“We are thrilled to offer the streaming fast TracPhone V7-HTS to boaters and mariners around the world, so they can experience the benefits of connectivity even while at sea. Ship managers can improve their operational efficiency by taking advantage of data-driven tools and decision-making, while yacht captains can offer guests onboard the faster connectivity they desire,” says Martin Kits van Heyningen, co-founder and chief executive officer of KVH. “We continue to bring innovative solutions to the marine market, including a network configuration able to provide high-speed data as well as unlimited use data all from the same system. What other services are offering as their airtime plans is a free value-added bonus from KVH.”

Additional features of the TracPhone V7-HTS include:

The secure myKVHTM mini-VSAT ManagerTM – an exclusive suite of tools that provide transparency into and control over data usage, including crew and user data allocation, real-time vessel tracking, customized text and email alerts, and management of the dual high-speed and unlimited use data channels Integrated CommBoxTM Modem (ICM) – streamlined all-in-one belowdecks unit featuring a browser-based user interface; iPhone® app for system status, updates, and support; and all necessary components—from antenna control unit and high-throughput modem to Voice over IP (VoIP) adapter and integrated Wi-Fi and Ethernet switches—built into the sleek, 2U-high ICM IP-MobileCastTM content-ready – fully compatible with KVH’s exclusive content delivery service, which offers news, movies, TV programs, sports events, weather data, ECDIS-compatible chart updates, and training programs KVH OneCareTM – global support program including application engineering, solution deployment, and operating support around the clock

KVH has a history of innovation in the maritime market, and launched its mini-VSAT Broadband network in 2007 with the original TracPhone V7 antenna system, which offered a faster, more compact, and more affordable maritime VSAT system and service than any on the market at that time. Responding to customer demand in subsequent years, KVH added two more VSAT antenna systems: TracPhone V3-IP, a 37 cm, Ku-band maritime VSAT antenna introduced in 2011; and the TracPhone V11-IP, a 1 meter, C/Ku-band antenna, introduced in 2012. Earlier this year, KVH announced that it has fielded more than 7,000 maritime VSAT units.

KVH provides a complete maritime communications solution from a single source, including mini-VSAT Broadband global connectivity; TracPhone satellite communications antenna systems; IP-MobileCast content delivery services; and VideotelTMmaritime training content and management.
