Kymeta Technology

Always-on mobile broadband communications

Leading the Industry Forward

Changing the way connectivity and mobile data is consumed and purchased

Kymeta ConnectTM offers hybrid satellite-cellular connectivity services with an all-inclusive hardware connectivity and services monthly subscription starting at $999, the lowest in the industry. The solution requires no upfront fees and makes broadband connectivity as easy to purchase as a wireless connectivity plan.

The world's only commercially available flat-panel electronically steered antenna

The Kymeta u8TMis built specifically for mobility and designed for the needs of the most demanding customers and beyond. The u8 is the world’s first lightweight, low-profile, flat panel, cost-effective and self-configurable solution that uses metamaterials and holographic beamforming technology. The industry has desired this type of solution for years, enabling users to seamlessly access mobile satellite and terrestrial services while on the move.

Continued product innovation to deliver the features and seamless reliability our customers demand

Kymeta is the first company to make metamaterial technology commercially viable. Users are turning to higher radio frequencies to meet increasing demands for mobile wireless data – and the best way to deliver that service is through traditional geostationary satellites and new constellations of non-geostationary satellites. Metamaterials enables Kymeta to build a more efficient antenna that delivers the dynamic electronically-steered performance of a phased array without the need for expensive and power-hungry phase shifters, related amplifiers and other components.

A Metamaterials Approach

The Advantages of Using Metamaterials Over Phased Array

Full Duplex Form Factor

Unlike phased array, Kymeta combines transmit and receive in a single aperture and a smaller, lighter overall footprint than leading phased array antennas, which improves product market fit for many mobile applications.

Roll Off Performance

While peak gain is typically better for a phased array of equal size, Kymeta’s performance advantage increases as the antenna scans, which makes Kymeta a better solution for highly mobile, extreme scan use cases.

Cost

Kymeta has more scalable manufacturing and calibration processes, which lowers CapEx costs and makes accessing connectivity more affordable.

Power Consumption

Kymeta’s technology consumes only 165W for a full terminal with a 20W BUC and an integrated modem, where phased array antennas range between 144W and 1KW. Kymeta antennas can leverage existing power systems on mobile platforms.
