Kymeta has completed the first shipment of the company’s electronically steered Hawk u8 OneWeb LEO terminal via its partnership with OneWeb — Kymeta is the first to commercially deliver, electronically steered user terminals for OneWeb’s LEO network and continues to ramp up production to meet overwhelming demand.
Kymeta user terminals are available for fixed applications and will soon be available for Communications-on-the-Move (COTM) for land and sea. This commercial milestone marks the start of new solutions and opportunities to better serve the needs of customers around the world.
Kymeta and OneWeb will demonstrate the solution across remote locations in the UK and via a roadshow in Canada.
“The satellite industry is entering an exciting new era, as every major industry from agriculture to defense can increasingly tap mobile broadband as an efficient and effective means to transform their operations,” said Walter Berger, President and Co-CEO, Kymeta. “The race to capitalize on the opportunity will be won by a group relay, not a single-company sprint. Partnerships such as our ongoing collaboration with OneWeb, along with Kymeta’s investments and innovation, will accelerate new applications to connect industries on Earth to capacity in space.”
OneWeb CEO, Neil Masterson, said, “We know there is palpable demand for flat panel, small, lightweight, easy to use, low power terminals. Kymeta’s u8 terminal gives our customers an exciting new choice of terminal for reliable, efficient connectivity to our LEO network.”
Widely adopted by military, government and enterprise customers, Kymeta offers the world’s only high-bandwidth, low-power, fully integrated family of high throughput mobile terminals. OneWeb’s LEO satellite network will give Kymeta customers access to high-speed, low-latency broadband connectivity while on the move or while stationary, anywhere in the world.
