Diana Nyad Connection With The Outside World

Diana Nyad Connection With The Outside World

Diana Nyad’s swim from Cuba to Florida will be covered in detail by her online social media team.

Her team during the swim will connect with the outside world through a KVH Industries Satellite Internet System.

The system has a gyroscope antenna with three gyros that allows the system to immediately adjust for any movement (waves) on the boat so the connection remains constant. The team uses an Ethernet cable onboard to quickly upload photos, video clips, tweets, blog postings and updates. It is a high-tech solution to be able to stay connected at sea with broadband internet via satellite.

KVH Industries is a leading manufacturer of solutions that provide global high speed Internet, television and voice services via satellite to mobile users at sea, on land, and in the air.
