KVH unveils high-speed satellite system

Rhode Island-based KVH Industries unveiled its advanced 60-cm marine satellite antenna system at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show in early November.

With fast data streaming and global coverage, the TracPhone V7-HTS is designed to enable yacht owners and their guests to stream HD content and conduct video calls at sea while simultaneously supporting a free, unlimited-use data channel.

“We continue to bring innovative solutions to the marine market, including a network configuration able to provide high-speed data as well as unlimited use data all from the same system,” Martin Kits van Heyningen, co-founder and chief executive officer of KVH, said in a company statement.

The TracPhone V7-HTS achieves data download speeds of up to 10 Mbps through KVH’s mini-VSAT Broadband network, which recently began using advanced Intelsat Epic satellites for high-throughput satellite capabilities, and additional capacity from SKY Perfect JSAT satellites. With the HTS network, KVH added 25 million square miles to its global maritime Ku-band high-speed connectivity footprint.

“This is a great service for a superyacht demanding higher data speeds than a traditional VSAT can provide,” Capt. Bryan Antill of M/Y Surina stated.
