Kymeta flat panel antennas complete Intelsat network tests

Kymeta Corporation and Intelsat report that they have successfully completed initial testing of the mobility performance of Kymeta’s flat-panel antennas on Intelsat’s satellite network for maritime applications.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}Building and testing of Kymeta’s first glass-on-glass, thin-film-transistor-based antennas, with receive and transmit on the same aperture, has been completed. This maritime prototype forms the basis of Kymeta’s 70cm Ku-band product, and the technology is currently being produced on existing liquid-crystal display TV display lines, marking the first step towards mass-volume of the antennas.

“At Intelsat, we are pursuing innovation in both satellite technology and ground systems to enable simpler access to our services,” said Stephen Spengler, chief executive officer of Intelsat.

“Our partnership with Kymeta will help ensure that our customers have much easier and more cost effective access to our fleet to leverage the power and higher performance of our satellites to solve their complex connectivity issues.”{/mprestriction}
