KVH Industries has announced the launch of satellite connectivity services that will allow vessels to use KVH connectivity while operating in Indian territorial waters.

In addition, KVH will offer satellite connectivity services to Indian flagged vessels. Station Satcom Private, an existing KVH service provider based in Mumbai, will be KVH’s distribution launch partner in India.

KVH’s VSAT services, which utilise Intelsat’s FlexMaritime network, are designed to make it possible for the thousands of vessels that operate in Indian waters to benefit from the fast data speeds and reliable connectivity of high-throughput satellite (HTS) technology. For the Indian services, Intelsat worked closely with local entities to get the approvals needed for maritime use at a key time. Commercial vessels are migrating from legacy L-band services to Ku-band HTS VSAT services, such as those offered by KVH, as the maritime industry pursues digitalisation to optimise operational efficiency and increase crew welfare.

“With the award of the license by the Department of Telecommunications of India, Station Satcom is leading the charge for innovation in the maritime industry while delivering an enhanced experience to our customers,” said Anshul Khanna, managing director of Station Satcom.

“Indian waters are extremely important areas for the global shipping trade and KVH is thrilled to offer our end-to-end maritime satellite communications solutions to vessels traveling there,” stated Brent Bruun, KVH chief operating officer. “With our satellite partner Intelsat and our distribution partner Station Satcom, KVH is proud to play a leading role in the digitalisation efforts ongoing throughout the maritime industry.”
