Kymeta M-Tenna

Global, mobile communications, in a small, light, easy-to-use form factor has been an elusive aspiration for decades. Though there have been advances, a solution for communicating with a mobile platform on a single global  network hasn’t been available. Until now.

Through its ground-breaking metamaterial technology, Kymeta has overcome the biggest barriers to global, mobile communications – ease of use, size, weight, power consumption, cost, mechanical parts, and easy to understand access services. Kymeta makes global mobile communications easy and accessible, providing a seamless, connected experience.

Kymeta’s innovative use of metamaterials has solved some of the satellite industry’s longest standing technical challenges: the need for lightweight, slim, on-the-move communication systems and services that are easy to buy and understand.
Expand your markets with Kymeta™ mTenna antenna subsystem modules (ASMs). Kymeta mTenna™ technology provides integration and installation options and flexibility for a variety of applications.
There are infinite applications for land, sea, and air – from connected vehicles and trains to ships and construction vehicles, the possibilities are endless.
