MIDDLETOWN, R.I.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--June 25, 2007--KVH Industries,
Inc., (Nasdaq: KVHI) announced today that it has received a $1.1
million order for its DSP-3000 fiber optic gyros (FOGs) from a U.S.
military customer. KVH's compact, highly accurate FOGs will be used
for real-time image synchronization and stabilization in military
training simulator systems. Shipments for this order are expected to
be completed in the near-term.
"Our DSP-3000 FOGs, with their precise and instant measurement of
platform motion, are an excellent and affordable solution for visual
synchronization in simulators and training systems," explained Jay
Napoli, KVH's director of fiber optic sales. "KVH FOGs allow the
simulator's virtual image to correspond exactly to a soldier's motion
by measuring even the slightest movement and relaying this data to the
simulator's computer, thereby helping to create a highly realistic
experience for trainees. In addition, the DSP-3000's versatility and
commercial-off-the-shelf design allow us to meet both our customers'
urgent and longer-term needs with equal ease."
With their all-fiber design and patented Digital Signal Processing
(DSP) technology, KVH's DSP-3000 FOGs offer high reliability, superior
accuracy and performance, and exceptional vibration, shock, and
acceleration survivability at an affordable cost. KVH's fiber optic
guidance and sensor systems are used in an array of commercial and
defense-related stabilization, navigation, autonomous vehicle, and
precision guidance applications. For example, two KVH DSP-3000 FOGs
are installed in each of the U.S. Army's new Common Remotely Operated
Weapon Stations (CROWS) systems, providing precise stabilization and
weapon recoil control, as well as ensuring that the weapon maintains
its aim on the target. In addition, KVH's TG-6000 FOG-based inertial
measurement unit serves as a key component in the guidance system of
the U.S. Navy's MK54 lightweight torpedo.

customer and the intended application cannot be disclosed at this
