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.
