The Kymeta u8 Flat Panel GOV Satellite Terminal includes a FIPS, 140-2 level 3 TRANSEC module and meets the demands of tactical users in scenarios that require secure data, voice, and video connectivity in highly mobile military, government and other rapid response applications. The Kymeta u8 Flat Panel GOV Satellite Terminal is compliant with existing security requirements as defined by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The Kymeta u8 Flat Panel GOV Satellite Terminal is a packaged terminal solution that includes the Kymeta u8 Antenna, embedded 950mp iDirect modem, LNB, 20W BUC, cellular modem, and Wi-Fi system.
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 performance. The Kymeta u8’s flat form factor allow the antenna to be mounted on vehicles and used in applications that previously were not possible with traditional parabolic satellite antenna terminals.
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.
