KVH Receives Orders Valued at $1.4 Million for TACNAV Military Navigation Components


MIDDLETOWN, R.I., Feb. 5 -- KVH Industries, Inc., (Nasdaq: KVHI) announced today that it has received two orders from a U.S. defense contractor for the purchase of components and upgrades for KVH's TACNAV® vehicle navigation systems for use on U.S. military combat vehicles. The two orders, which have a total value of approximately $1.4 million, are scheduled to begin shipping in the first quarter of 2008.

"KVH's TACNAV systems continue to prove their value to U.S. and allied warfighters on the battlefield. The components covered by these two orders will enable TACNAV systems on U.S. vehicles to be upgraded and enhanced to provide continued support in the rigorous military environment and mission- critical applications, including vehicle navigation and integration with digital battlefield management systems," explained Dan Conway, vice president of business development for KVH Industries.

KVH's TACNAV military vehicle navigation systems provide unjammable, precision navigation, heading, and pointing data for vehicle drivers, crews, and commanders. TACNAV can also serve as a link between each vehicle and the overall digital battlefield, making each unit a node in a secure military network that consolidates a wide range of tactical data to provide detailed information to individual units and military commanders. TACNAV systems are currently in use on U.S. and allied vehicles participating in ongoing operations in Iraq and elsewhere. Military forces fielding TACNAV include the U.S. Army and Marine Corps, as well as many allied customers, among them Canada, Sweden, Great Britain, Germany, Spain, Australia, New Zealand, Saudi Arabia, Taiwan, Malaysia, Switzerland, and Italy.

Due to contractual restrictions, additional details regarding the customers and vehicle platforms cannot be disclosed at this time.
