The Kymeta u8: Revolutionizing VSAT Communications
Since entering the industry in 2012, Kymeta has been at the forefront of SATCOM technology. In 2017, Kymeta released its first-generation terminal, the u7, which leveraged groundbreaking technology and meta materials. This laid the groundwork for the company’s next-gen KU Band satellite terminal: the Kymeta u8.
What Makes the Kymeta u8 Unique?
The u8 is the first electronically-scanning, flat-panel satellite terminal for fixed and mobile platforms.
While other VSAT (Very Small Aperture Terminal) antennas have many moving mechanical parts to keep them pointed (specifically 3- Axis stabilized maritime antenna systems) , the u8 has none—which allows it to be extremely low-profile. Traditional VSAT antennas must also be stationary when pointing; the Kymeta u8’s cutting-edge software-defined, electronic beam steering technology eliminates the issues surrounding mechanically based antennas to allow for true on-the-go communication.
In addition, the u8 can be embedded in the roof of a vehicle and painted to match, if you’d like the equipment to be inconspicuous. Bulkier terminals can be damaged by low tunnels or other infrastructure, but the u8’s low profile means it has plenty of clearance, regardless of what you encounter or where you need to go. These features make the u8 an ideal choice for law enforcement, public safety, military, maritime, transportation, and commercial use.
Other features of the u8 include:
- Multi-WAN satellite and cellular configuration
- Interoperability with low Earth orbit (LEO) and geostationary (GEO) satellite constellations
- Supports multi-waveform openamip-compatible modems and integration into many unique system configurations
- Plug-and-play setup—just add power
- Aerodynamic casing
- Access to Terminal metrics and SD-WAN, edge content, and connectivity management tools available via a cloud-based portal
- A multi-function hardened case tested to MIL-STD-810H transportations standards
