Good morning Roy,

As usual, you're quicker than a speeding bullet,with this press release.

This is the first time KVHI has entered into an entirely new field with a product that displaces past products with an new upgraded technology.

Faster,better and at a lower price.

This is truly exciting.

Let's hope that order announcements are the next step.Thinking most customers will want to try out the new technology before switching over to "Active Fiber". If it does what they say(and their track record is flawless) it should occur very quickly.

I 'm hoping for an exciting day today.Our little cranker is setting up to be one of the the next bull market's brakeout leaders.

Bob

Hi Bob,

Our little cranker is setting up to be one of the the next bull market's brakeout leaders.

>VBG< The timing may just be right for the next generation, although finding a bottom here has been exasperating. KVHI has held up well throughout the market's repricing exercise.... and, of course, MKVH has once again delivered on a promise.

Consistent, reliable management of this quality is hard to find in a company this size... soon to be larger. There will be a need for more money to take advantage of all they pursue, but dilution should be minimal since it will occur at a considerably higher price.

Regards,

Roy

Here's a different release that contains current sensor mention:

KVH Optical Modulator Draws on Company's 20 Years of Fiber Optic Experience; All-optical, ActiveFiber Modulator Represents Breakthrough in Optical Networking Speed and Construction

March 19, 2001 08:31:00 AM ET


MIDDLETOWN, R.I.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--March 19, 2001--Today at the Optical Fiber Communications (OFC) Conference in Anaheim, California, KVH Industries KVHI revealed the preliminary specifications for the company's new 40 gigabit per second photonic fiber optical modulator. This breakthrough all-optical modulator uses KVH's ActiveFiber technology and is the latest in a series of fiber optic product and technological advances brought forth by the Rhode Island-based optical fiber and systems manufacturer. These new products, including a fiber optic high-voltage current sensor, build on the company's more than 20 years of fiber optic research, development, and manufacturing experience.

KVH formally entered the fiber optic marketplace in 1997 when it purchased Andrew Corporation's fiber optic assets, acquiring a talented and experienced team of optical fiber researchers and a wealth of intellectual property. Since that time, KVH has completed the development of its patented D-fiber and an array of fiber optic products, including E-Core(R) Polarization Maintaining Fiber and the E-Core(TM) line of fiber optic gyros (FOGs), and has successfully brought them to market. With a fully operational, 23,000 foot optical fiber and component manufacturing facility in Tinley Park, IL, the company is well-positioned to play a significant role in the optical fiber market in the coming years.

"We recognized the value fiber optics would have both as components within KVH's satellite communications and navigation products and as standalone products," explained Martin Kits van Heyningen, KVH president and CEO. "With more than two decades of experience and in excess of 70 patents, we have proven our ability to develop and bring to market outstanding, high-quality fiber optic systems for a variety of applications. We are one of the few companies that produces both optical fiber and key fiber components, allowing us to have outstanding quality and performance control over our optical fiber and our fiber optic products."

KVH is already using its proprietary FOG technology to enhance the precision and durability of future generations of the company's TracVision(R) satellite television systems as well as the TACNAV(TM) tactical navigation product family. At the same time, the company's fiber optic products are being employed in a variety of applications, including autonomous vehicle navigation, military stabilization, platform stabilization, and simulators.

In addition to the photonic fiber optical modulator presented at OFC, KVH is preparing to market a high-voltage fiber optic current sensor to the electrical power industry. The optical current sensor employs the same proven fiber optic solutions used in the company's FOGs. The sensor measures the phase difference created in optical signals by the current in a high-voltage power line. The resulting current sensor is more accurate, faster, smaller, and more cost-effective, and is an ideal replacement for current transformers. The current sensor has already undergone extensive field testing, and KVH is working with an industry leader to further refine the product and bring it to market in the coming year.

Additional details regarding KVH's ActiveFiber technology and the preliminary specifications of the optical modulator are available at www.photonicfiber.com.

KVH Industries, Inc. is a leading provider of innovative high-bandwidth communications products, navigation systems, and fiber optic 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 Tinley Park, Illinois, and a European sales, marketing and support office in Hoersholm, Denmark.

Hi Roy,

Agreed on Martin's quality.

Additional equity will be considered with future private placements.This would result in dilution but I believe it would be the most efficient in terms of cost.

Being as classy a company as they are,it would be neat if they gave current stockholders an opportunity to buck up for the company with an in-house (amongst current stockholders) SPO. It would make for interesting articles in the financial papers.


I was leary about opening up your post - as I was fearing another "fill the gap" analysis.<smile>

Thanks for the post - best of trades to you.


Bob

Here's a third press release that seems to suggests they will be selling their fiber itself. Yet another revenue stream.


KVH Industries Introduces Elliptical Core Polarization Maintaining Fiber
E-Core PM Fiber Now Available for Delivery for Fiber Splicing and Pigtailing Applications
MIDDLETOWN, R.I., Mar 19, 2001 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- KVH Industries (Nasdaq: KVHI chart, msgs) introduced its E-Core(R) polarization maintaining fiber today at the Optical Fiber Communications (OFC) Conference in Anaheim, California. E-Core fiber offers a number of advantages, including high polarization maintaining ability (greater than 40 dB-m) and low sensitivity to stress and temperature. These features make E-Core fiber ideal for fiber splicing and "pigtailing" to other optical components in applications where preserving the state of light polarization is critical to the operation of the device.

"The geometrical birefringence created by the elliptical core is the key to the E-Core fiber's outstanding polarization-maintaining abilities," explained Sid Bennett, KVH's vice president of fiber optic business development. "Because of its design, it is able to maintain its polarization and low-loss characteristics when exposed to physical stresses and temperature-induced changes far better than PM fiber created using stress-induced birefringence. It is the E-Core fiber's stability that makes it an excellent choice for pigtailing optical components."

The elliptically shaped core region within an E-Core fiber has a significantly higher index than the surrounding cladding, creating the geometrical birefringence necessary to maintain the polarization of the light within the fiber. The E-Core fibers are manufactured using high-grade silica materials and various high-purity dopants. A dual UV-cured acrylate coating is applied to standard fibers, thereby preventing moisture from penetrating the fiber, preserving its strength, and improving its handling characteristics.

With more than 20 years of fiber optic experience and 70+ patents, KVH Industries, Inc. is one of the few companies to make its own fiber as well as manufacture components and systems. Using its E-Core(R) polarization maintaining fiber, KVH manufactures an array of fiber optic products, including fiber optic gyros, high-voltage current sensors, and optical networking components. KVH is also a leading provider of innovative high-bandwidth mobile satellite communications products and navigation systems. An ISO 9001-registered company, KVH has headquarters in Middletown, Rhode Island, with a fiber optic manufacturing facility in Tinley Park, Illinois, and a European sales, marketing and support office in Hoersholm, Denmark.

Yes, but KVHI makes TWO kinds of optical fiber.

This should be an easy new revenue source for them, as they currently routinely produce fiber as needed. This comes at a time when they want to increase revenue to fund and accelerate the two new initiatives. This makes excellent sense.

Here is my post on Yahoo!

Yahoo! is the more active thread, and I assume everyone is reading it as well. If not, you are missing 80% of the information.
