The Kymeta u8 Flat Panel GEO Terminal is a packaged terminal solution that includes the Kymeta u8 Antenna, integrated iDirect modem, LNB, 20W BUC, cellular modem, and Wi-Fi system. The Kymeta u8 Flat Panel GEO Terminal is ready to go, an off the shelf solution to integrate into your existing Ku Band iDirect VSAT mobility network.
The Kymeta u8 Flat Panel GEO Terminal uses Electronically Steered Phased Array Antenna technology to provide operators with a flat form factor satellite antenna with unrivalled tracking performance to ensure the Kymeta u8 Flat Panel GEO Terminal stays pointed to and connected with the satellite regardless of the terrain.
The Kymeta u8’s flat lightweight form factor allow the antenna to be mounted on vehicles and used in applications that previously were not viable using traditional parabolic satellite antenna terminals. Kymeta’s latest u8 Antenna model has been re-engineered from the previous Kymeta u7 model to provide full coverage of the Ku band, increased antenna performance (up to 2.5dB), and extended environmental coverage.
STEP Electronics is the Australia distributor of the Kymeta range of products and has been working with Kymeta since 2016. STEP Electronics’ technical staff have been trained by Kymeta to provide installation, commissioning, and field maintenance services. STEP Electronics parent company Av-Comm provides managed satellite services for the Kymeta u7 and u8 terminals, offering satellite network design and on-demand services.

Kymeta was formed in 2012 for the express purpose to commercialise metamaterials in satellite communications and building an electronically-steerable antenna for satellite using metamaterial science. In 2017, Kymeta introduced the first-generation product, the Kymeta u7 terminal which leveraged the science and technology behind metamaterials. This ground breaking research and production of the u7 laid the ground work for Kymeta’s next generation of products, the Kymeta u8 terminal. The Kymtea u7 and Kymeta u8 provide revolutionary mobile connectivity on satellite and hybrid satellite-cellular networks to customers around the world. Kymeta makes connecting easy – for any vehicle, vessel, or fixed platform.
