KVH Industries announced that the Federal Communications Commission granted permanent "Earth Station onboard - Vessel" or ESV license authority for KVH's mini-VSAT Broadband satellite communications service.

Prior to receiving this permanent license, the KVH mini-VSAT Broadband service has operated in U.S. waters under an FCC Special Temporary Authority since September 2007, while also supporting mariners worldwide.

"This is a major achievement for the mini-VSAT Broadband service, which brings the economic and operational benefits of VSAT service to large new markets of commercial and leisure vessels," said Martin Kits van Heyningen, KVH CEO, in a statement.

"While the FCC jurisdiction applies only to U.S. flagged vessels and operations in U.S. territory, the FCC's approval serves as a major endorsement of the viability and reliability of our global spread spectrum network for maritime operators worldwide," he added.
