KVH TracPhone to Support Jeppesen OpenENC PAYS Subsribers

Press Release
Wednesday, June 05, 2013

ECDIS compliance using Jeppesen OpenENC "Pay-As-You-Sail" (PAYS) may be enhanced by using Position Reporting from TracPhone V-IP Series Terminals & Satellite Delivery of Charts over the KVH Mini-VSAT broadband service.

KVH Industries plans to offer automatic position reports to support its customers who subscribe to the popular Jeppesen OpenENC "Pay-As-You-Sail" (PAYS) electronic chart service.

OpenENC PAYS provides subscribers with access to the entire Jeppesen Electronic Navigation Chart (ENC) database, allowing them to pay only for the charts they actually use based on position reports made periodically to Jeppesen. KVH's new TracPhone® V-IP series terminals all feature internal GPS systems, which enable accurate position tracking for Jeppesen without needing to interface with the vessel's navigation system, thus providing an affordable PAYS solution for mutual KVH and Jeppesen customers.

"Jeppesen OpenENC PAYS is already an excellent subscription option for vessels that travel variable routes and need to meet IMO requirements for ECDIS," said Alex Zakroff, Jeppesen's Vice President/General Manager, Marine. "KVH plans to make it easy and economical for their mini-VSAT Broadbandsm customers to use our PAYS solution by providing affordable position reports. Our companies expect that aligning our technologies will enhance the value we bring to the customer."

"KVH and Jeppesen have been having a lot of creative discussions about ideas for making satellite delivery of charts a practical replacement for physically distributing DVDs to vessels. Through this cooperation, we realized that the position data we were already collecting to support our mini-VSAT Broadband service was exactly what Jeppesen needed to support their PAYS service," commented Brent Bruun, Executive Vice President of KVH's Mobile Broadband Group. "With the permission of the customer, we can support the Jeppesen service, and since the data is already traveling over our network back to our own operations center, we decided to offer it as a benefit to mini-VSAT Broadband customers."
