Kymeta Government Solutions
Kymeta has developed a low-power, flat-panel, electronically steerable Ka-band antenna that will fit on a type of satellite known as a 3U CubeSat. Such satellites measure just 4 x 4 x 10 inches, and they’re becoming increasingly popular for space applications.
This antenna is appropriate for a variety of applications that require high data rate communications, but do not have the funding or the weight budget to allow a phased array antenna, including university CubeSat teams, commercial companies, and government entities.
Like all Kymeta/KGS metamaterial antenna systems, this antenna uses a tunable dielectric material and an array of radiating elements to create an interference pattern that steers the beam in the desired direction. This method provides moderate gain without the use of mechanical steering and similar functional performance to a traditional phased array at a fraction of the size, weight, power, and cost (SWAP-C).

With its first-of-a-kind satellite technology that can connect anything that moves, Kymeta is delivering on the promise of connectivity. Our terminals are flat, light, and have no moving parts, bringing high-throughput communication to vehicles and places it has never been before.
