Kymeta announced the acquisition of Lepton Global Solutions, which will become a wholly owned direct subsidiary of Kymeta. Financial details of the acquisition were not disclosed.

Established in 2013, Lepton Global Solutions is a provider of satellite-based customized turnkey communications solutions and services with expertise in the intelligence community (IC), special operations command (SOC) and other government sectors.

Acquiring Lepton combines critical capabilities and strengthens Kymeta’s ability to pursue key opportunities with U.S. defense and government customers in locations around the world. As a rapidly growing satellite communications services provider with a global and scalable network infrastructure, Lepton provides customized end-to-end connectivity solutions that can be deployed quickly and efficiently to meet the needs of customers wherever they are located.

Lepton currently hosts Kymeta’s satellite connectivity solutions. As a combined entity, the new offerings and capabilities bring unique, complete, bundled solutions to the market based on best-in-class technologies and tailored customer-centric services that meet and exceed customer mission requirements, Kymeta said.

“Having a turnkey satellite service provider like Lepton accelerates Kymeta’s ability to successfully penetrate U.S. military and government customers in partnership with a well-established brand, deep channel experience and network support for those verticals,” said Walter Berger, president and chief operating officer (COO) of Kymeta. “The combination of Kymeta’s revolutionary hardware, together with Lepton’s service offerings, will be a winning combination that will be hard to beat. We are excited to bring Rob Weitendorf, Isabel LeBoutillier and their team into the Kymeta family and thus expand and accelerate our ability to go to market.”

Together, Kymeta and Lepton will bring better solutions to the market as each company’s resources will enhance the other’s ability to meet customers’ needs. Current Lepton customers will experience no interruption in service in the short-term and will continue receiving Lepton’s full suite of products, services and support. Over the long-term, customers will enjoy the benefits of the joint Kymeta-Lepton collaboration, and they will continue to build on Lepton’s established excellence as a satellite service provider and Kymeta’s unique product and services portfolio.

“Government and commercial sectors need the most reliable and seamless connectivity to successfully fulfill their daily missions,” said Rob Weitendorf, managing partner at Lepton. “This new venture will enable our customers to leverage the expertise of Lepton and Kymeta to receive more customized services and solutions, while maintaining Lepton’s legacy of providing the best-of-breed solutions always with a focus on the customer’s mission. I can’t think of a better partner than Kymeta to launch this new era of connectivity with as we bring new offerings to the market in satellite and cellular communications around the world.”
