There is only one OFC per year. Lumera missed this year's. Next year, when they are announcing, I bet KVHI will be demonstrating 40Gbps transmission at their booth. A live demonstration is a must, IMO. If they do it with the cover off, it would be great!

Here, already is planning for next year's OFC.


KVHI has a quad size booth already reserved - #6415. Click on 2002 floorplan. Then scroll down to their name and doubleclick it. No Lumera, as of yet.

KVH TACNAV-II Selected for French Army Vehicles

MIDDLETOWN, R.I.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 11, 2001--KVH Industries (Nasdaq: KVHI - news) today announced they had received a contract from Giat Industries (France) to integrate the new KVH TACNAV-II Tactical Navigation System with Giat Industries's Systeme d'Information Terminal, (SIT-VI), Battlefield Management System (BMS). Giat Industries awarded this contract to KVH as part of an upgrade project for the French Army's AMX-10RC and VBL armored vehicles. The SIT-VI system will enable the exchange of digitized data between vehicle and command forces on the battlefield. KVH's contract is worth over $2.7 million if all of the options are exercised.

``We are delighted to be working with Giat Industries to bring the benefits of our TACNAV-II system to the French Army.'' said KVH president and CEO, Martin Kits van Heyningen. ``Our tactical navigation systems complement the U.S. Global Positioning System (GPS), overcoming GPS' vulnerabilities of being jammed or blocked, thereby providing continuous and highly accurate navigation data to both vehicle crews and modern battlefield management systems.''

KVH's TACNAV-II is a fiber optic gyro-based tactical navigation system that is integrated with a vehicle's odometer, GPS, and BMS. The TACNAV-II combines GPS position data with its own built-in kalman filtered dead reckoning calculation using inputs from its fiber optic gyro, optional digital compass, and the vehicle's odometer. In the event that GPS is unavailable due to jamming or blockage, the KVH system seamlessly substitutes its calculated position for the missing GPS data. This important feature assures 100% availability of the navigation data that has become vital for modern battlefield maneuvers and critical to the effective performance of new digital battle management systems.

The TACNAV-II provides full two-way communications with the BMS. The system sends navigation data from the vehicle to the BMS, including the vehicle's current position, speed, and heading. It also has the ability to collect and forward data from the vehicle's laser rangefinder, which typically includes the range and bearing to designated targets. The BMS integrates inputs from all of the vehicles on the battlefield providing a concise overview of both friendly and opposition forces.

KVH's system will also accept commands transmitted from the BMS to provide navigation instructions directly to the vehicle crew. For example, a command could be sent directly to a vehicle driver to steer to a new checkpoint or steer in a particular direction. This feature allows the force commander to easily synchronize the maneuvers of all the vehicles on the battlefield, a significant tactical advantage.

Navigation, stabilized pointing and targeting data are provided directly to the vehicle commander and driver through TACNAV-II's new universal dot matrix displays. Displays are easily customized to provide essential data corresponding to the viewer's responsibilities. They can even provide data to crew members in their own language, facilitating their ability to quickly comprehend the displayed data.

``We've fielded more than 7,000 TACNAV systems with leading armed forces around the world, including those of the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Saudi Arabia, Sweden, Spain, and Australia,'' commented Christopher Burnett, KVH vice president of business development. ``We are happy to now be supplying the French Army, and are optimistic that this contract will lead to additional TACNAV-II awards for the French Army's new VBCI armored infantry combat vehicles.''

Giat Industries (France), a European leader in land defense systems, design, produce and market complete combat systems, whether they be armoured systems (main battle tanks, recovery vehicles, information systems, logistic support, training, etc.) as well as weapon and ammunition systems (artillery, infantry, mining and mine clearing, associated munitions, logistic support, etc.). Additional information is available on the company's web site, www.giat-industries.fr.

KVH Industries, Inc., is a leading provider of tactical navigation systems for military vehicles. Using its proprietary fiber optic technology, the company is developing next-generation systems for broadband communications and navigation applications. Its headquarters are located in Middletown, Rhode Island. Additional information is available on the company's web site, www.kvh.com.

It was interesting watching the anemic volume today until about 1:30 or so when Bob got trigger happy. <vbg>

The daily chart shows the tight range the stock was bound by until the breakout this afternoon. Good to see it break the right direction. g

Hi Roy,

I'm getting excited. That's the kind of institutional buying that will get KVHI into a breakout and into the teens.

I have a very good feeling about how the price action is working.

NO SELLERS and BIG BUYERS = upward price action.


Bob

I'll stay in the weeds and wait to buy the breakout now.


I already have my broker giving me nasty letters regarding undue concentration.gggg

KVH Industries Announces Successful Completion of Financing Effort; $4 Million Investment Brings Private Placement Total to $19.5 Million
May 31, 2001 07:30:00 AM ET


MIDDLETOWN, R.I.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 31, 2001--KVH Industries KVHI announced today the successful completion of its private equity financing with the sale of 615,384 common shares priced at $6.50 per share to an institutional investor on Friday, May 25, 2001. This sale, valued at $4 million, had been previously approved by KVH's Board of Directors and shareholders at the company's annual meeting and brings the total equity raised by the company since December 2000 to $19.5 million. Needham & Company acted as placement agent for the financing. Proceeds of the placement will be used to finance the company's Photonic Fiber and Mobile Broadband R&D projects. KVH intends to register the shares by filing a Form S-3 during the second quarter ending June 30, 2001.

"Providing the resources for effective research and development is critical if we are to bring the Mobile Broadband and Photonic Fiber projects to market successfully. Late last year, we set a goal of raising 15 to 20 million dollars to support our new product development efforts, and I am pleased that we achieved our goal at favorable terms in a challenging market," said Martin Kits van Heyningen, president and CEO. "This funding provides the resources to aggressively pursue our new product initiatives."

The Photonic Fiber project is focused on developing KVH's ActiveFiber(TM) technology, which will be used to create a new class of products for high-speed optical networking applications. These products will combine the company's proprietary D-fiber with newly developed electro-optic polymers. If successful, the resulting photonic fiber would offer significant improvements in speed and cost for the $8.1 billion optical component market. Currently, fiber optic products from KVH are used to meet the growing demand for highly precise, cost-effective sensors in robotics, electrical current sensors, and other OEM applications.

The Mobile Broadband project being pursued by KVH seeks to develop solutions to allow automobiles to receive satellite television and high-speed Internet while in motion. Leveraging its expertise as a leading provider of mobile communications systems, KVH is developing ultra-low profile antennas practical for these applications. These antennas would allow automobiles to receive services via satellite, and would take advantage of the growing market for video entertainment, especially in minivans and sports utility vehicles.

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, a fiber optic manufacturing facility in Tinley Park, Illinois, and a European sales, marketing, and support office in Hoersholm, Denmark.

This press release may contain certain forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties. The actual results realized by the Company could differ materially from the statements made herein. Factors that might cause such differences include, but are not limited to: failure to develop and market mobile broadband and fiber optic products; unforeseen changes in competing technologies and products; and poor or delayed research and development results. Additional factors are discussed in the company's Annual Report on Form 10K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on February 8, 2001, and Quarterly Report on Form 10Q filed on April 25, 2001. Copies are available through the company's Investor Relations Department and web site, www.kvh.com.
