Satellite Communications nications products to the U.S. marine market. KVH will continue to distribute
Thrane & Thrane's full line of existing
Inmarsat maritime products through
KVH's nationwide dealer network. In addition, KVH and the Denmark-based
Thrane & Thrane will work together to introduce products geared toward sup- porting high-speed, two-way data com- munications in the U.S. maritime mar- ket. The newest of these products is the
Tracphone F33 global satellite commu- nications system, which offers voice, fax, data, and high-speed Internet access around the world. Vessel owners and fleet managers rely on SeaWave STAR, a Web-based asset tracking tool. Vessels equipped with a SeaWave communica- tions system can be tracked for free by authorized remote users using SeaWave
STAR. Fleet owners and managers locate, monitor and communicate with all their vessels with a single heads-up display featuring common interface ele- ments. To generate tracking information the ship owner or administrator simply sets the desired time interval for reports.
Back on shore, authorized personnel with a user name and password can log into the mySeaWave Web portal and see the ship or multiple ships in a single dis- play. Tracking assets from the most remote areas in the world is a benefit to fleet management and safety. Benefits include: Track multiple vessels in the fleet; detailed voyage information; view log entries, comments, fuel and cargo reports; easily export data into Microsoft
Excel for trending and analysis; intuitive interface requires little or no training.
