mTennau7 Satellite ASM—Coming in 2017
The Kymeta mTennau7 is designed for use in many platforms where reliable communications are required, but unattainable due to location and availability. Primary uses include a broad range of land, sea and air applications, both mobile and stationary. The mTennau7 is designed for demanding environments where both transmit and receive channels must provide large bi-directional feeds. It is able to provide high-speed broadband level access for rich and immersive living room or office-like experiences while at sea, in the air or on the road.
mTenna® technology delivers a low profile, lightweight, small footprint, metamaterials based Ku-band satellite antenna subsystem module (ASM) with several advanced features including:
- Electronic RF beam steering in manual or automatic modes
- Electronic polarization selection and angle control
- Satellite auto-acquisition and tracking
- Communication to the antenna through a standardized application programming interface (API)
- No moving parts which significantly reduces maintenance costs and improves reliability
- Weather facing radome eliminating the bulky legacy radome, reducing weight and complexity
- A lightweight form factor for easy installation
- Low power
- Supports transmit and receive operations on a single aperture
- Embedded, seamless installation options
Kymeta Antenna Combiner—Coming in 2017
Kymeta’s antenna combiner is designed to allow multiple antennas Rx signals to be combined for demanding environments where throughput scalability is critical. Each combiner unit can link up to 4 mTenna ASMs effectively increasing the Rx gain by up to 2.7 dB for each doubling of antennas. Multiple combiners can be used to link up to 64 mTenna ASMs for maximum scalability and flexibility.
The combiner also supports 360-degree global coverage. When traveling to extreme northern or southern latitudes combining antennas can make connectivity reliable even when there are extremely low-look angles.
