Kymeta and OneWeb Partner to Develop Flat Panel User Terminal for LEO Network to Support Land Fixed Solutions Paving the Way to Future Land Mobile, and Maritime Mobility Solutions

Share

Kymeta (www.kymetacorp.com), the communications company making mobile global, and OneWeb (www.oneweb.world), the Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellite communications company, announced today a joint development agreement (JDA) to develop an innovative flat panel electronically steered user terminal that is compatible with the OneWeb network to support land fixed applications and leading the way to various mobility applications like land mobile, maritime, and other mobility needs of the future.

The Kymeta™ u8 flat panel antenna technology provides an innovative solution to interoperate with the OneWeb LEO satellite constellation that supports Communication on the Pause (COTP) and future Communications on the Move (COTM) for military, government, first responder, maritime, enterprise and other commercial customers. The Kymeta u8 based terminal will provide the benefits of interoperability between GEO and OneWeb LEO services to strengthen the reach of the terminal solutions.

“This JDA formulized our collaborative efforts and commitment to bring to market an innovative electronically-steered antenna that is turnkey and compatible with OneWeb’s rapidly expanding LEO network,” said Neville Meijers, Chief Strategy and Marketing Officer, Kymeta. “We look forward to this joint endeavor for the benefit of our mutual customers.”

“Kymeta’s pioneering u8 does not require mechanical components to steer toward a satellite and when paired with our LEO network will provide governments, businesses, and communities with high-throughput and low-latency communication services at competitive prices,” said OneWeb Chief of Delivery and Operations, Michele Franci. “This partnership is a welcome addition to our overall product strategy, offering another great choice for OneWeb’s customers and contributes to strengthening our vision to provide seamless, resilient mobile connectivity where and when its needed most.”

Under the new JDA, engineering teams from both OneWeb and Kymeta will collaborate to ensure the terminal meets the technical specifications required for compatibility with the OneWeb network.

The announcement comes just months after Kymeta and OneWeb previously collaborated on a pilot program to successfully test and demonstrate a LEO-GEO capable land flat panel user terminal in Toulouse, France which generated a great deal of interest from customers. The two companies aim to launch their new solution into the market for purchase by the third quarter of 2022.

Swedish authorities officially confirmed that the current level of smoking in Sweden has fallen to 5,6%. This makes Swedes the only European nation close to reaching the smoke-free goal set by the EU 18 years ahead of the 2040 target.

Ageras, the leading fintech company utilizing its banking and accounting software to power more than one million small businesses across Europe and the United States, announced today that it launched its proprietary Inflation Tracker, revealing how the rise in the Consumer Price Index dramatically outpaced the rise in prices billed by Europe’s small businesses across seven Western European economies in the most recent quarter.
