Great work Sector,

That will certainly make it easier for folks to do their DD (if it doesn't scare them away from the sheer volume of info!)

Thanks, Mike

Well, it was 2 years out of date, and I had been meaning to do it for a long time. Now it's done. Hopefully soon David James (the thread creator) will get my request to update the header and do it soon.

What really stands out is the number of products and the number of contracts or partnering announcements. Some people equate "small" with "startup", but that is not true here. Also almost all of the contracts are the start of ongoing relationships, with reorders which we may or may not see depending on size.

For Buy and Hold Investors;

Sector has done all the work right here before your eyes. Now it's important to break the business segments down on a forward looking basis, fundamentals have become for many a waste of time, but not to us.

We think that in the next year KVHI's defense business will continue to grow, this growth will turn the company profitable and expand into the next five years from FOGS in multi applications to deployment of Video distributed to land and sea based military platforms.

While these deployments are taking place, scale able civillian projects will be gaining traction, from increasing market share in the Motor coach market we'll begin to see integrated video systems into the proverbial SUV and Minivan. Few here probably realize that KVHI has this capability, fewer still know that KVHI is already shipping Mobile internet along with satellite programing.

As we already have begun to see DVD players in vehicles to keep the kids occupied, the next 5 years should prove to be the most exciting for the entire automotive industry as new platforms emerge that deliver whole new capability to recreation and business markets like OTR trucking and supply management.

KVHI also has systems in development that will have a material effect on the Power industry, these systems and their current providers are in transition, but like all technological evolutions, change is assured, and as the current state of the art is pressured by high value components and costs savings, KVHI will emerge as a major provider of systems components to these industries as well.

KVHI's trade float is already Scarce; buy and hold investors who understand scarcity know what this means. While many rush headlong into Gold and other instruments of flight, we are finding equally scarce common stocks with huge forward fundamental value, where real earnings and possibly dividends, and liquidity creation, can be become important features of a portfolio.

Stand by, for these are indeed evolutionary times; Stalk the bear.

Thanks again dvdw,

The Yahoo! thread is actually where most of the discussion activity for KVHI takes place. It's another excellent thread. Right now we are discussing the benefits of upgrading the Army Paladin artillery system with smart munitions, rather than spend $9 billion on the new Crusader system that Rumsfeld recently cancelled (or wants to cancel anyway).

Here are today's posts on that topic.

I put a couple more smart munitions related posts over on Yahoo!, but now for a playoff hockey game.

Hi Sector,

Nice going on the header update.

Just a point of interest. For those who've never been to KVH's Newport location - Lockheed Martin is just accross the street on the next block.This train thing can and should be huge.

Trains do 70 % of auto transportation.It doesn't happen often but when a rail car gets lost -it literally disappears. I had a trock get lost for 30 days - when found they shut the train car down - unloaded all the vehicles and hotshotted them to the appropriate dealer - My truck was direct hauled from Washington state at a huge cost.

Can you imagine the cost if the product being shipped was perishable - ugly huh???

Visualize each train car and locomotive with a $2000 gyro - even if it was standard equipment on new train cars it would be very good stable plus business.If it went retro - it would be huge AGAIN !!!

Beginning to wonder why this little potential monster is below 12???

Hi dvdw,

Just to add a little fuel on your fire.

I'm a Chevrolet and GMC dealer in Cleveland Tx.

For the 2003 model year which will start production in June /July depending on vehicle lines. BOTH Chevrolet and GMC have announced thr flip down LCD display panels as optional equipment accross their entire full size truck and SUV vehicle lines.This represents close to 50 % of their e3ntire production.

In recent months GM has finally sold more trucks than cars.So over 50% of their production is trucks.The onl;y sector within trucks that will not have display screens available will be their small S-10 trucks guessing no more than 5%.

So in almost one year GM will make available Satellite compatible vehicles for 45 % of their entire production.


By the way my biggest fear is GM wanting to buy this great company - keep in mind they've been installing their(KVH's )NAV TRAC for years in the personnel carrier GM makes.

You're a dealer? Wow, I didn't know that.

You make a good point about the relationship with General Motors Defense. Now that I've got the handy header post updated, it's easy to find and highlight your point.

In January 2001, KVH won a $3.2 million contract to supply TACNAV to GM Defense to equip the Australian Army's Light Armored Vehicle (ASLAV) fleet. Here is what was said about GM Defense at that time:

<<"KVH has enjoyed a long and positive relationship with General Motors Defense. Working together, we've equipped the GM armored vehicles used by the U.S. Marine Corps, Canada, Saudi Arabia, and now Australia with TACNAV systems.">>

Message 15141200

Regarding your fear, if they should show interest two or three years from now, I don't think I would be too unhappy. In the next 2 years KVH is projected to grow at a 35% compound growth rate (Needham $60M 2003 estimate). As we all know that estimate omits several blockbuster items (as least 5 I can think of off hand) that are quietly perking along, any one of which could take us to a new level.

Robert, regarding your train post, I have to agree with you.

Just one look at the train graphic they included with their P/R (which I documented in post #1185), and you can see how individual cars could get lost. Geesh, just get on the wrong track, get hooked into a train going in a different direction by mistake, and the car could end up anywhere.

Here is the graphic. The header post sure makes it easy to find things.
