Friday, February 18, 2011

KVH Introduces TracPhone V3, which the company touts as the smallest and most affordable maritime VSAT System, at 2 Mbps and $0.99 per MB. The ultra-compact TracPhone V3 represents the latest advancement in maritime satellite communications from KVH Industries, Inc., (Nasdaq: KVHI). It was introduced at the Miami International Boat Show, the TracPhone V3 is the world’s smallest maritime VSAT antenna, measuring 14.5" (37 cm) in diameter and weighing 25 pounds (11 kg). "The TracPhone V3 will definitely change the way mariners think about satellite communications. We are excited to offer accessible, affordable broadband Internet access via this ultra-compact system and our proven, global mini-VSAT Broadband network,” explains Martin Kits van Heyningen, KVH’s president and chief executive officer.  The TracPhone V3 includes a fully stabilized antenna, a powerful ViaSat ArcLight spread spectrum modem, and a sleek below-decks antenna control unit that are all fully integrated and configured for easy installation. ArcLight spread spectrum technology enables very small antennas like KVH’s 24" (60 cm) TracPhone V7 and now, the TracPhone V3 to receive satellite transmissions with the speed and reliability of older, 1-meter VSAT antennas that use TDMA transmission schemes. KVH’s high-efficiency RingFire antenna design and dielectric feed rod technology mean the TracPhone V3 offers performance, even in poor weather, and its rugged design is perfect for use on tuna towers and commercial vessels.
