KVH Industries... Much Ado About MSUA (Award)

[SatNews] Receiving an award for innovation is dear to any Company's technical soul...

In 2007, KVH Industries (Nasdaq:KVHI) unveiled a revolutionary approach to satellite communications with the introduction of its mini-VSAT Broadband(SM) network and compact TracPhone® V7 hardware. This breakthrough and the network's global expansion were honored recently as the Mobile Satellite Users Association presented KVH the 2011 MSUA Innovation Award. The honor was presented by MSUA president Tim Farrar at the MSUA-8 conference, which was held in Washington, DC. The mini-VSAT Broadband network was designed from the ground up to be the first nexgen maritime satellite communications solution. The global spread spectrum satellite network, built with ViaSat's patented ArcLight® technology, offers more affordable airtime, voice service and Internet access as fast as 512 Kbps (ship to shore) and 2 Mbps (shore to ship). More than 1,000 TracPhone V7 systems have been shipped in the three years since the product's introduction, making the mini-VSAT Broadband network the fastest growing maritime VSAT solution. The company recently expanded its product offering with the new TracPhone V3, the world's smallest maritime VSAT system at only 14.5 inches in diameter.
