KVH Industries shipped its 9,000th mini-Very Small Aperture Terminal (VSAT) Broadband system. KVH’s TracPhone V-series antenna systems are designed to provide satellite broadband connectivity to commercial and personal vessels globally, by utilizing satellite technology like High Throughout Satellites (HTS).

KVH’s TracPhone antenna systems include the TracPhone V3-HTS, a 37 centimeter diameter Ku-band maritime VSAT antenna, and the TracPhone V7-HTS, a 60 cm diameter Ku-band antenna. These HTS antenna systems are designed for KVH’s mini-VSAT Broadband HTS network, which utilizes Intelsat Flex Maritime service, providing multi-layered global coverage through Intelsat EpicNG HTS and select wide beams.

“Ever since we launched our mini-VSAT Broadband network more than 10 years ago, our antenna systems have been in demand by the maritime industry,” said KVH Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Martin Kits van Heyningen. “Our solution is known for fast data speeds, affordable airtime, and an advanced, secure, and reliable network, which continues to be a winning combination as the maritime industry relies more and more on connectivity.”
