You have opened a big can of worms here . . . its time to start calling on the company. I doubt we are both growing senile. I have no record/memory of the releases.

I don't know what makes that different. Here was an earlier release for seemingly the same L3 product.

New Low-profile KVH TracVision L3 Brings Mobile Satellite TV to Vehicles

Middletown, RI – December 5, 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). 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™, 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.

The opening of the Russian market seems highly significant to me. Also the multi-lingual TacNav should not only result in new markets, but should result in additional orders for upgrades to previously sold product.

I will contact the company tomorrow on why these never hit the news wires. Maybe we get get them re-issued one more time? <g>

Number 1:

Unicom Selects KVH Tracphone 50 for All Mini-M Communication Onboard 49 Ships

In selecting the Tracphone® 50 from KVH Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ:KVHI), for its Inmarsat mini-M communications needs, the Russian shipping company Unicom cited the quality, performance and substantial cost savings of the mobile marine satellite system. For Unicom and its fleet of ships, the Tracphone 50 enhances business operations through ongoing cost savings and improved services, and at the same time makes life throughout international waters more comfortable for crew members.

According to a Unicom representative, the Tracphone 50 provides "excellent" financial savings and a "cost effective way to have voice, data and fax" for the 49 ships where the KVH system has replaced older communications equipment. The company is using Tracphone 50 systems for crew calling, E-mail, and business communications with usage averaging about 75 percent for voice, 20 percent in data transmissions, and 5 percent in faxing. The system is easy for crew members to operate, and Unicom reports that users on all the ships are very pleased with Tracphone 50’s performance and reliability. For security and accountability in all its communications, Unicom uses SIM cards and a number of different crew-calling concepts are available to suit individual needs. Overall, Tracphone 50 is an ideal solution for commercial vessels where operators often worry about crew members running up high monthly bills.

Voice transmissions are generally more cost effective with Tracphone 50 on ships where voice transmissions commonly constitute nearly 75 percent of daily satellite communications. In comparing per-minute costs of as little as $2.15 for mini-M service to the $4.00 charge for Inmarsat A/B, an average commercial user can pay for the cost of a Tracphone 50 and save more than $10,000 in the first year. For a multiple-carrier fleet like Unicom, the annual savings on communications costs is very significant.

Tracphone 50 is designed specifically for commercial applications. Its patented robotics design, fielded in over 7,000 similar communications applications, is robust, reliable and fully automatic. The durability of the Tracphone 50 pedestal has been amply demonstrated by both the US Navy and the US Coast Guard, as well as by the thousands of satellite telephones sold in the US by Motient Corporation (formerly American Mobile Satellite Corporation).

The three-axis, fully stabilized antenna delivers trouble-free, high-quality reception due to a 12.5 dB gain that is almost twice that found on similar products from other manufacturers. For commercial vessels travelling throughout the world’s waters, this increased gain ensures that the satellite contact crucial for business, safety and personal needs is maintained, even in the fringe areas of spot-beam coverage. KVH also has designed the compact system, which measures only 19.3 inches (49 cm) in diameter, so it is easy to install and tie into a ship’s phone system. These features increase both the time on line and cost savings.

KVH Industries utilizes its proprietary fiber optic, auto calibration and sensor technologies to produce navigation and mobile satellite communications systems for commercial, military, marine and land mobile applications. The company has headquarters in Middletown, Rhode Island, USA, with facilities in Illinois and Florida, and a European sales, marketing and support office in Hoersholm, Denmark.

And number 2:

UK Group Selects New Solid-state GyroTrac Compass To Upgrade Rescue Capabilities of Lifeboat Crews

The newest GyroTrac™ gyro-stabilized magnetic compass from KVH Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ:KVHI), has been selected by the Royal National Lifeboat Institution in the United Kingdom for stabilizing modern radar equipment on its fleet of all-weather lifeboats. GyroTrac is being installed as part of a four-year rolling upgrade program on all Severn, Trent and Mersey class lifeboats. By stabilizing radar equipment pictures, the solid-state GyroTrac compass will assist volunteer lifeboat crews in carrying out quick and effective search and rescue operations.

"We believe our recent three-axis, solid-state gyro enhancement has further solidified GyroTrac’s position as the best magnetic compass in the world," said Mads Bjerre-Petersen, managing director of KVH Europe. "With the ability to perform on vessels at higher speeds and faster turn rates than ever before, GyroTrac now has significantly expanded potential applications. This is particularly true in rescue, ferry and law-enforcement markets worldwide where compass accuracy and durability are critical for their high-speed vessels."

The self-calibrating GyroTrac combines user-selectable digital and analog outputs to interface easily with onboard electronics, providing mariners with a single, central heading device that can provide True or Magnetic North data. GyroTrac’s stable accurate heading information is the ideal input for North-up/ARPA radars.

KVH Industries utilizes its proprietary fiber optic, auto calibration and sensor technologies to produce navigation and mobile satellite communications systems for commercial, military, marine and land mobile applications. The company has headquarters in Middletown, Rhode Island, USA, with facilities in Illinois and Florida, and a European sales, marketing and support office in Hoersholm, Denmark.

Lifeboats! Golf Carts! Yellow line in football games, Handheld Training simulators!

KVH is sure winning some unusual contracts. This should point out the practically unlimited - and untapped potential of sales for sensors here.

These are certainly not what I expected! Is this anything like the difference between a flashlight and a "torch"? Or gas vs Petrol? This sounds like a significant win for KVHI!

they still don't say car.

And how does one purchase it, through a dealer? Are they (the installing dealer?) selling subscriptions to DISH, DirectTV, etc. Are they available now?

What no local channels? <gggg>
