The Kymeta U8’s Radome is coated with a hydrophobic coasting to repel water and stop it pooling on the radome’s surface. The hydrophobic coating ensures optimal performance as any water or dew on the radome will absorb the satellite signal attenuating the signal and reducing your bandwidth.
Kymeta™ u8 hydrophobic coating reapplication kit. Product availability is expected in Q1 2021.
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.
