Hanwha Systems $30M Investment into Kymeta Corp. Approved by CFIUS
Kymeta Corporation (www.kymetacorp.com)—the communications company making mobile global—announced today that the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) has approved a $30 million investment by Hanwha Systems Co., Ltd. (HSC) (www.hanwha.com), a leading global solutions company that provides differentiated smart technologies in defense electronics and information infrastructure, in Kymeta.
The approval provided by CFIUS clears the way for HSC and Kymeta to close on the transaction that was jointly announced last December. The investment moves Kymeta one step closer toward developing solutions that are future proof and interoperable with both LEO and GEO mega constellations. Today, the Kymeta™ u8 is the only commercially available flat panel antenna that is compatible with LEO and GEO satellite constellations and enabled to take advantage of the growing capacity within space.
“We are thrilled that the investment is approved and eager to leverage Kymeta’s expertise in hybrid satellite and cellular connectivity solutions,” said Youn Chul Kim, CEO of HSC. “Kymeta’s solutions will further our aerospace capabilities and deliver reliable communications for our defense customers.”
“We look forward to moving ahead and working with HSC,” said Doug Hutcheson, Executive Chairman, Kymeta. “We believe this investment will be instrumental in enabling the continued innovation, advancement and commercialization of Kymeta’s connectivity solutions. We’re excited about the future of Kymeta and the LEO satellite market.”
The investment from HSC will further Kymeta’s global market reach, accelerate production, and improve the overall growth trajectory of the company. The funding will support increased unit production, enhanced customer experience, and the ongoing development of Kymeta’s next generation capabilities. With the capital investment HSC will also receive a seat on the Kymeta Board of Directors.
HSC plans to support Kymeta’s metamaterial-based antenna technology and gain a foothold in the rapidly growing Low Earth Orbit (LEO) antenna market.
Kymeta is unlocking the potential of broadband satellite connectivity, combined with cellular networks, to satisfy the overwhelming demand for comms on the move and making mobile global. Lepton Global Solutions, a Kymeta company, hosts the company’s satellite connectivity solutions and offers unique, complete, and turnkey bundled solutions to the market based on best-in-class technologies and tailored customer-centric services that meet and exceed customer mission requirements. These solutions in tandem with the company’s flat-panel satellite antenna, the first of its kind, and Kymeta Connect™ services provide revolutionary mobile connectivity on satellite and hybrid satellite-cellular networks to customers around the world. Backed by U.S. and international patents and licenses, the Kymeta terminal addresses the need for lightweight, slim, and high-throughput communication systems that do not require mechanical components to steer toward a satellite.

Boehringer Ingelheim Enters Clinical Collaboration with Amgen to Study BI 1701963, a SOS1::pan-KRAS Inhibitor, in Combination with LUMAKRAS™ (sotorasib), a KRAS G12C Inhibitor16.9.2021 14:00:00 CEST | Press release
Boehringer Ingelheim today announced a clinical phase I collaboration with Amgen to evaluate the combination of BI 1701963, the first and most advanced SOS1::pan-KRAS inhibitor exhibiting activity against a broad spectrum of KRAS alleles, and LUMAKRAS™ (sotorasib), the first US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved KRASG12C inhibitor for adult patients with locally advanced or metastatic non-small cell lung cancer. The trial will investigate potential synergistic effects of this combination, possibly improving therapeutic outcomes beyond those of KRASG12C inhibitor therapy alone, specifically for people living with lung and colorectal cancers. Preclinical data suggest that the combination of a KRASG12C inhibitor with a SOS1::pan-KRAS inhibitor may result in increased anti-tumor activity in KRAS G12C-driven cancers based on the complementary mechanisms of these targeted oncology agents.1 2 By shifting the equilibrium from active KRAS towards the inactive form, SOS1::pan-KRAS inhib

Entersekt Enables FIDO Authentication for Improved Security, User Experience, and Customer Choice16.9.2021 13:00:00 CEST | Press release
CYBER attacks pose a massive risk for financial institutions. The cost of data breaches averages tens of millions of dollars, and other after-effects are often far-reaching for organizations and their customers. At the root of these breaches are passwords – in an estimated 80% of cases. “Eliminating passwords and replacing them with more secure and user-friendly solutions is critical,” says Entersekt’s SVP Product, Christian Ali. Ali says there’s been a massive surge in online fraud in the past 18 months. Existing methods of authenticating consumers’ identities and transactions typically rely on outdated, less secure solutions like passwords or OTPs, while more secure solutions often require a mobile app. In addition, poor user experience often leads to cart abandonment – and lost sales. Users are frustrated and banks are at risk. To address the divide between strong security on the one hand and good user experience on the other, Entersekt has expanded its authentication suite to inclu
