About Kymeta

Kymeta is unlocking the potential of satellite to offer solutions that are low-profile, lightweight, easy to install and maintenance free.

Our Story


Kymeta was formed in 2012 for the express purpose to commercialize metamaterials in satellite communications and building an electronically-steerable antenna for satellite using metamaterial science.

​In 2017, Kymeta introduced the first-generation product, the KymetaTM u7 terminal which leveraged the science and technology behind metamaterials. This ground breaking research and production of the u7 laid the ground work for our next generation of products, the Kymeta u8 terminal and KymetaTM Connect.

Today, Kymeta is unlocking the potential of broadband satellite connectivity, combined with cellular networks, to satisfy the overwhelming demand for communications on the move and making mobile global.

Lepton Global Solutions, a Kymeta company, hosts the company’s satellite connectivity solutions and offers unique, complete, and turnkey bundled solutions to the market based on best-in-class technologies and tailored customer-centric services that meet and exceed customer mission requirements.

These solutions in tandem with the first-of-its-kind KymetaTM u8 flat-panel satellite antenna, along with Kymeta Connect™ services provide revolutionary mobile connectivity on satellite and hybrid satellite-cellular networks to customers around the world.

Backed by U.S. and international patents and licenses, the KymetaTM u8 terminal addresses the need for lightweight, slim, and high-throughput communication systems that do not require mechanical components to steer toward a satellite. Kymeta makes connecting easy – for any vehicle, vessel, or fixed platform.

Our disruptive technology and innovations are supported by a world-class research and development facility, and a team that includes some of the brightest minds in the industry. Together, we are building and delivering the next generation of satellite and cellular connectivity. Watch our video to learn more – Inside Kymeta: Up Close and Personal


The science behind Kymeta’s technology was born from fundamental metamaterials research at Duke University and later incubated at Intellectual Ventures. At Intellectual Ventures, the first prototype of the reconfigurable metasurface antenna (MSA) was created, which would serve as the foundation for Kymeta’s mobile satcom terminals.

Kymeta’s metasurface technology represents a remarkable architecture for a new class of electronically scanned antennas; one that comprises the first commercially-available, metamaterial-based product. This ground breaking research, backed by an extensive portfolio of U.S. and international patents and licenses, laid the groundwork for Kymeta, which spun out of Intellectual Ventures in August 2012.
