Kymeta Produces, Markets Electronically-Steered Flat Satellite Antennas

Kymeta has begun production of electronically-steered flat satellite antennas in partnership with government clients, Space News reported Monday.

A hundred of these Mtenna flat satellite antennas have already been shipped across 23 countries.

The antennas have been used with military-grade armored vehicles and ships made to operate in austere environments.

The company said it is currently developing a very small aperture terminal variant for use in the military and public safety.

The U.S. Special Operations Force purchases Kymeta products through a contract with Lockheed Martin.

Kymeta currently offers Ku-band broadband services, and plans to add Ka-band as a service offering.
