Kymeta Satellite Terminal Receives FCC Approval
Tuesday, September 29, 2020 | Comments

Kymeta announced that the FCC granted it blanket authorization for the operation of its u8 terminal — a next-generation electronically steered, flat-panel earth station in motion (ESIM) platform.

The authorization is a major milestone toward the release of the u8. Additionally, Kymeta received type approvals from several leading satellite service operators (SSO) that include Intelsat, Echostar, Hellasat, KTSat, and Telesat for use with the Kymeta u8 terminal.

“Receiving the FCC authorization, puts us one step closer to releasing our next-generation solutions into the market and at scale,” said Kymeta Chief Operating Officer (COO) and President Walter Berger. “We have the only hybrid technology that is part of a global land mobile ecosystem. The market needs a connectivity solution they can rely on, and we are positioned well to be a driving force of what lies ahead for mobile communications.”

The u8 is the world’s only commercially available electronically steered, flat-panel ESIM platform with no moving parts, built specifically for mobility and designed for the needs of department of defense (DoD), government, first responder and commercial customers. The u8 is available as an antenna, a terminal or in flyaway configurations.

The terminal covers the full Ku-band with improved efficiency and will be low Earth orbit (LEO) upgradeable at a later time. The u8 offers a low-profile form factor with native DC power input for easy integration into mobile platforms, always-on connectivity and cloud-enabled solutions. With a multi-WAN satellite and cellular configuration, the u8 terminal provides communications anywhere.

To date, Kymeta has deployed 25 beta units globally to facilitate real-world testing of the u8 terminal and Kymeta Connect connectivity services.
