Moving Map Display for Military Vehicles Provides Critical Navigation Information on Touchscreen

Designed for demanding battlefield conditions, the MMD provides soldiers with an immediate visual map reference

MIDDLETOWN, R.I., Sept. 12, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- KVH Industries, Inc., (Nasdaq:KVHI), has introduced the TACNAV®Moving Map Display (MMD), offering real-time moving map technology for military vehicles. The TACNAV MMD provides an easy-to-read, easy-to-use graphical navigation capability by combining available internal or external GPS/GNSS with TACNAV’s inertial or compass-guided navigation solution.


Soldiers who once relied on grid reference alone now have the benefit of viewing a visual map on a 10-inch diagonal, high bright color display viewable in all lighting conditions. They can create, store, and activate waypoints and routes from the touchscreen, which helps increase situational awareness.

The TACNAV MMD displays position, heading, speed, cross track error, distance, and bearing to waypoint. Vehicle location and other pertinent navigation information is shown on either a satellite or topographic map stored locally on the TACNAV MMD. The information can be displayed to the vehicle commander, driver, and other occupants as required. The TACNAV MMD is capable of presenting navigation information in multiple languages, enhancing joint multinational operations.

“The display was designed for ease of use with a touchscreen that provides intuitive operation, which is a major strength on the battlefield,” says Dan Conway, executive vice president of KVH’s inertial navigation group. “Anything that increases a soldier’s situational awareness will help to keep that soldier safe. The moving map display enhances the capabilities of our widely fielded TACNAV systems, which have been helping to keep soldiers out of harm’s way for years.”

The TACNAV MMD is compatible with existing TACNAV systems including the TACNAV Light/GPS and the TACNAV 3D, and will be compatible with future TACNAV systems.

KVH’s TACNAV product line is currently in use by the U.S. Army and Marine Corps, as well as many allied militaries, includingSaudi Arabia, Canada, Great Britain, France, Germany, Sweden, Spain, Egypt, Botswana, Australia, New Zealand, Taiwan,Romania, Poland, Turkey, Malaysia, Switzerland, South Korea, Singapore, Brazil, and Italy.

From September 12-15, KVH is displaying the TACNAV MMD in Booth N5 160, at Defence and Security Equipment International(DSEI), held at the ExCeL convention center in London, U.K. KVH will also display the TACNAV MMD at AUSA, in Washington, DC, from October 9-11, Booth 7443.

Today we finally set some new 2017 highs in KVHI and not a peep from anyone in almost 2 months, except for a couple of KVH news releases. Is anyone still here or in KVHI?

Yes, I know (very well, thank you) that KVHI stock performance has been a total disappointment for way too many years, but hopefully the new Connectivity as a Service Program AgilePlans will finally show some building momentum for sales and another beat this quarter.

Let's get this show rolling!

Hi Walter

Just good to see the stock price under accumulation.

Looking forward to next cc. I think our biggest surprise will be how KVH is taking control of their content and airtime expenses. I think a lot of it is moving inside KVH doors. Not a lot has been said about this by KVH yet, but I am expecting a nice surprise as to what they will be able to include in their air time content and the lowering of costs.

Read a small article where an analyst (didn't say who) was increasing quarter estimates significantly.

I believe we are on the verge of both airtime and fog finally pulling us up together.

KVH still has quite a hiring list and many new positions.

Hi guys,

I echo your sentiments. At the same time, we are still waiting on the elusive TacNav contract and true HTS hardware. It’s these two events that make $12 a distant floor and not the unbreakable ceiling it is now.

KVH is adding in incremental income opportunities which is good for the growth of the reoccurring baseline. They have also added some more Agile plan installation locations. If each location averaged one install a week, KVH would see unit run rate double over the current annual 1k run rate. It seems like a very low bar considering the aggressive all-in pricing plans. They need to improve the hardware and data package to see a true acceleration in growth, however. Other than minor changes, the v7 has been around for 10 years with only a minor increase in data rates. The competition is now offering comparable, if not better, hardware and data packages. The good thing is that the agile plans are still unique and priced very competitively.

For the 1st time in over 2 years, currency exchange rates will work to KVHs favor. Albeit, minor. It’s nice to have this headwind behind us.

And of course, it would be nice to be positively surprised for once. I just don’t think q3 will be that quarter, from a financial perspective, because of the lack of transformative hardware. What happens if TacNav continues to be a dud? They will be guiding lower for Q4, even if Agile plans are taking off. I wonder if that was the plan all along? Get us through 2017 by manipulation so we focus on 2018 and the explosive growth that will happen when they finally offer an HTS product line.


I will feel much better when TacNav or HTS happens. Been waiting for 3 years. Still waiting. And I think we will all be ecstatic if a low cost, mass market FOG is introduced.

I do think Vintage will be pushing. Ironically I am a IEC stockholder also . Hedgeclipper mentioned IEC in a slide presentation on this board. Vintage did win the proxy battle at IEC. However IMO they like to buy on the cheap. RE: Anaren Microwave/API

Hey guys,

KVH has removed the deep discount promotional brochures from the special offers link that they have been using for the last two years on minivsat hardware and services. Usually they just update the expiration date 1 or 2 quarters ahead. It’s possible they might just repost with new expiration dates but this is definitely a change in their approach. It’s more likely to be an indication we will soon see new hardware with true HTS or Agile plans are performing above expectations.

When I asked them what they would do if the new Agile plans were too successful (and they had to deliver more systems than they could build), the new CFO, Donald Reilly, and Martin said they had ways to scale back demand if necessary. I definitely see this as a positive sign of increased demand. The stock price is also confirming it too, I presume. Last December's peak was $12.75. After that, $15-16 next stop!

Walter. I can't believe they said that to you. If you ask me they have been finding ways to scale back demand for their products for more than 15 years.

It was an obvious issue that if they offered free hardware, that demand would increase and would they be able to meet it. I got the answer as stated. Separately, they said that KVH was actually in a better state regarding sales compared with all their competitors, who were losing sales. It has been a difficult time in the marine communicatons sector for a while now. They have been able to maintain that 250 or so systems per quarter for some time. Sure, I wish it had been increasing, but it has not been the case for all their competitors. It should be interesting what Agile plans has boosted the rate to.

National Marine Electronics Association Recognizes KVH Marine Satellite Systems with 2017 Product Excellence Awards

KVH’s TracPhone® V3-IP and TracVision® TV3 systems win awards at the annual NMEA conference

MIDDLETOWN, R.I., Oct. 03, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- KVH Industries, Inc., (Nasdaq:KVHI) is pleased to announce that the top marine electronics professionals in the country have honored two of KVH’s marine satellite antenna systems for their outstanding performance and reliability. KVH’s TracPhone V3-IP received the National Marine Electronics Association’s (NMEA) 2017 Product of Excellence Award in the satellite communications antenna category, while the TracVision TV3 received the 2017 Product of Excellence Award in the satellite TV antenna category.


This is the 20th consecutive year that KVH has achieved the NMEA distinction for its TracVision satellite television antenna systems and the 15th time that KVH’s TracPhone satellite communications antenna systems have been recognized.

The NMEA awards are presented annually to recognize excellence in design, performance, and reliability in marine electronics products. The winners are selected by a vote of the members of NMEA, an industry group made up of more than 600 companies, including manufacturers, dealers, and boat builders.

“We are thrilled to receive this recognition from NMEA knowing that it represents the opinion of skilled professionals who have firsthand experience with the installation and performance of our products, as well as those of our competitors,” says Martin Kits van Heyningen, KVH chief executive officer. “They work with our TracVision and TracPhone systems every day, and we consider their recognition as the highest honor.”

KVH’s TracPhone V3-IP and its earlier variant, the TracPhone V3, have been recognized with a NMEA product award in the satellite communications antenna category for the past six years in a row. The TracPhone V3-IP is a 37 cm (14.5 inch) diameter Ku-band VSAT antenna that operates on KVH’s worldwide mini-VSAT Broadbandsm network. The ultra-compact system meets the increasing demand for broadband connectivity on boats, delivering fast data speeds at low airtime costs, and with a terminal that can be installed on boats as small as 30 feet.

The TracVision TV3 is an ultra-compact marine satellite TV system ideal for powerboats and sailboats that cruise as far as 100 nautical miles offshore. The TV3 makes it possible for boaters to enjoy their favorite high-definition television programming while on the water. The compact, 37 cm (14.5 inch) diameter system includes an IP-enabled TV-Hub for easy setup and operation, and makes it possible to access system information from a smartphone, tablet, or computer.
