kvh industries inc (KVHI) Key Developments

KVH Industries Inc. Introduces Affordable Fiber Optic Gyro Inertial Measurement Unit 's for Demanding Applications

KVH Industries Inc. has introduced the 1725 Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) and the 1775 IMU, advanced sensors designed to be integrated into the most demanding stabilization, pointing, and navigation applications. These two new products complement KVH's successful 1750 IMU and create a complete range of choices for advanced 6-degrees-of-freedom (DOF) sensors with enhanced performance. All three products utilize the groundbreaking E--Core ThinFiber technology of KVH's DSP-1750 fiber optic gyro (FOG). The 1725 IMU features a flexible user interface, with user programmable data output rates from 1 to 1000 Hz. It delivers excellent FOG performance and stability at a price comparable to competitive MEMS-based IMUs. The 1725 IMU is ideal for all platforms and navigation or stabilization systems where low cost, high-performance, and high bandwidth are critical for success. The 1775 IMU is a premium sensor designed to deliver the high level of performance to meet the demands of platforms requiring superior performance in the most challenging environments. Providing ease of integration for designers of high-level inertial navigation, guidance, or stabilization systems, the 1775 IMU offers a flexible interface with user-programmable data output rates from 1 to 5000 Hz. It includes 3 axes of magnetometers for automatic gyro bias compensation even in the presence of strong magnetic fields. The 1775 IMU is designed for sophisticated systems and applications where very high bandwidth, low latency, and extreme stability are critical. Like KVH's successful 1750 IMU, which was introduced in 2012, the 1725 IMU and the 1775 IMU incorporate 3 axes of KVH's DSP-1750 FOG, the world's smallest high-performance FOG, integrated with 3 axes of advanced accelerometer technology. All three IMUs provide excellent shock, vibration, and thermal performance, as well as a compact form factor.

KVH and Transas Team Up to Solve Mariners' Need for Fast and Affordable Updates to Mandatory Electronic Charts

KVH Industries Inc. and Transas announced a strategic relationship designed to ensure vessels at sea receive affordable, timely updates of mandatory electronic chart data. The CHARTlink channel of KVH's IP-MobileCast content delivery service will support delivery of chart and other data updates from Transas. This is the first of many steps envisioned by Transas for delivery of value-added data for shipboard use with the IP-MobileCast service. International maritime regulations mandate the use of ECDIS for commercial and passenger vessels. To meet regulations, ECDIS must have up-to-date ENCs, but the process of updating these large chart databases via the Internet can drive up satellite communications costs while a vessel is at sea. Delivery of updates by DVD causes delays due to a vessel's remote ports of call and associated logistical issues. KVH's IP-MobileCast content delivery service, which utilizes multicasting technology, is designed to provide an affordable way for ships to receive the chart updates. A ship equipped with KVH's TracPhone(R) V-series or V-IP series satellite communications antenna systems, which are designed for the mini-VSAT Broadband(sm) network, can subscribe to IP-MobileCast's CHARTlink service and receive chart updates automatically. The Transas ENC updates are designed so that they can be received, unpacked, and deployed without user intervention, a key aspect of compliance with maritime regulations and overall service quality. The IP-MobileCast service utilizes multicasting technology to deliver large amounts of content to many ships at once, overcoming the prohibitively high satellite communications costs typically charged to deliver files for individual use. The new service is notable for technological advancements that enable content to be delivered over the top of KVH's mini-VSAT Broadband network, while also ensuring that the multicasting transmission does not affect the vessel's mini-VSAT Broadband onboard data speed.

KVH IP-MobileCast TRAININGlink Delivers Videotel Content

Videotel, has announced plans to continually update its training programs through KVH's IP-MobileCast(TM) TRAININGlink(TM). Videotel's new continual improvement model of application and content updating will be implemented for its products Videotel on Demand (VOD) and Networked Videotel on Demand (NVOD) by utilizing the multicasting technology of KVH's IP-MobileCast content delivery service. Subscribers to VOD and NVOD who are also customers of KVH's mini-VSAT Broadband(sm) service and IP-MobileCast content delivery service will receive new training material as soon as it is released, with free delivery over their broadband connection. This is an unparalleled improvement over current practices, where annual training program updates must be sent by CD-ROM or USB stick via courier, which can often involve an average time of 1-3 months to reach a vessel. The VOD system is a computer-based solution for crew training and records management onboard ship; the NVOD enables access across the vessel's network system allowing multiple users to train simultaneously on different or the same subjects, with all training being recorded. With the immediacy of the IP-MobileCast delivery method, Videotel can more effectively help maritime operators keep their crew training completely up to date. Good training, an essential element of any industry, can be particularly challenging to implement in the maritime industry because of the logistics involved in reaching mariners. The fact that the shipping industry faces complex maritime regulations, ship inspections, and company audits makes it even more critical that ships keep their crews current with effective, high-quality training.
