The Magic of Metamaterials – Kymeta’s Latest

June 7, 2016

Imagine the possibility of accessing online content from anywhere on Earth. Kymeta’s new mTenna® technology makes this one-time dream a reality. 

The software used in mTenna technology tracks low earth orbit (LEO) and medium earth orbit (MEO) satellites to stay connected. Because the technology is so lightweight, it means the Kymeta antennas will be more durable, lighter and faster to install – opening up a host of potential applications across sectors like the automotive, aviation and maritime industries.

The company has had a very successful several months developing and testing its flat-paneled, software-based antenna, which is already changing the mobile communications sector:

  • New Product Innovation Award from Frost & Sullivan: Research Analyst Meena Subramanian commented, “Satellite broadband in the automotive industry is expected to represent the future of connected vehicle technologies. Kymeta has addressed the challenges faced by automotive OEMs by enabling global coverage and secure Over the Air (OTA) updates. This innovative product is currently facilitating connected car concept vehicle design and is expected to extend its support to autonomous vehicles.”
  • Kymeta-Panasonic Avionics Corp. partnership: Panasonic will order a “significant volume” of Kymeta’s mTenna to be used for maritime vessels. While antennas usually have to be put on ships by crane, the mTenna can be “put on by hand,” according to Kymeta Chief Commercial Officer Bill Marks.
  • Kymeta enters the military market: According to Kymeta CEO Nathan Kundtz, "The principle mission for [Kymeta] in the defense [market] is to take commercial products and transition them into the defense arena.”
  • Kymeta announces satellite-communications partnership with Toyota: The partnership was announced at the January 2016 North American International Auto Show. The partnership demonstrates both companies’ commitment to innovation, as Toyota hopes to install  mTenna technology in its research car based on the Toyota Mirai fuel cell vehicle.
  • KymetaConnected tours the United States: The Toyota 4Runner, equipped with mTenna technology, toured the U.S. to showcase the utility of connectivity everywhere. The tour ended at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center in Washington, D.C. where Kymeta hosted a Surf and Turf Party on the Potomac for industry partners.
