The world’s smallest maritime VSAT antenna from KVH is available in Australia

Measuring just 37cm in diameter, the compact KVH TracPhone V3 will change the way mariners think about satellite communications. This fully stabilised antenna with powerful ViaSat ArcLight® spread spectrum modem offers easily accessible, faster data speeds, and significantly lower airtime rates.

The TracPhone V3 offers outstanding data rates with download speeds as fast as 2 Mbps on KVH’s proven, global mini-VSAT Broadband(sm) network. With the simplest and most affordable cost structure available, users can enjoy Internet access and e-mail for just USD$0.99 per MB along with crystal-clear voice calls worldwide for only USD$0.49 per minute billed directly with KVH Industries, Inc. This compares with published airtime rates of well over USD$10 per MB from competing L-band services like Inmarsat.

ArcLight® spread spectrum technology enables very small antennas to receive satellite transmissions with the speed and reliability of larger 1-metre diameter dishes. KVH’s high-efficiency RingFire™ antenna design and dielectric feed rod technology mean the TracPhone V3 offers great performance, even in poor weather, and its rugged design is perfect for installation on fly bridge tuna towers, cruising yachts and commercial vessels.

“This TracPhone V3, at just over a foot (37cm) in diameter, has it all,” according to Paul Garske, General Manager of Coursemaster Autopilots the Australian distributors of KVH Satellite TV and communications systems in Australia, ”ultra-compact hardware, simple installation and operation, and true global broadband at affordable rates. It offers broadband internet access, e-mail and voice services to mariners who must have them available on board.”

The TracPhone V3 joins KVH’s highly successful TracPhone V7 in KVH’s mini-VSAT Broadband product line. It provides the metred rate plans and compact design typical of L-band services like Inmarsat with the faster data speeds and low cost of mini-VSAT Broadband.

Already the fastest growing maritime VSAT solution, mini-VSAT Broadband’s seamless worldwide network is delivered by 13 satellite transponders and 10 secure earth stations and offers significant cost savings compared to competing services. The larger TracPhone V7 is the world’s best selling maritime VSAT system, offering a total end-to-end solution for commercial vessels with onboard networks.

For further information on the new KVH TracPhone V3, please contact Coursemaster Autopilots 02 9417 7097 sales@coursemaster.com or www.coursemaster.com
