KVH opens testing facility at R.I. headquarters

KVH Industries recently opened a new testing facility that houses a custom-made hexapod motion simulator.

The new building is adjacent to KVH’s world headquarters in Middletown, R.I., and supports all TracPhone and TracVision products. The facility allows KVH to advance its quality assurance program, providing products for marine, RV and automobile customers.

“The design and location of the building allow KVH engineers to test products efficiently and thoroughly in a controlled environment,” Jeffrey Greer, vice president of operations at KVH, said in a statement. “The rectangular shape of the building, with its arced radius of windows, provides a full, clear view of the Clarke Belt.”

Satellites in the Clarke Belt orbit the Earth about 22,500 miles above the equator, broadcasting TV and communications signals.

The design and location of the testing facility allows KVH engineers to easily perform regular testing, supporting the company’s commitment to providing “top-of-the-line products to people on the go around the globe,” the company said.
