Kymeta and Tecom Team Over mTenna

Kymeta has announced a development agreement with Tecom to incorporate its mTenna technology into an aviation terminal to demonstrate connectivity to a Ku-band satellite.
The flat panel satellite antenna is light and has a low profile which, the company states, helps to reduce drag, weight, and maintenance when in position. The Kymeta satellite antenna is being sold on its ability to deliver high-speed, global connectivity.
Bill Marks, chief commercial officer, Kymeta said that the agreement meant that the company was “one step closer to delivering the benefits of Kymeta’s satellite antenna technology to our aviation market customers.”
Greg Lackmeyer, director, Business Development at TECOM stated: “Coupling Kymeta’s mTenna antenna technology with our next generation RF transceiver is transformational for the global IFC marketplace. We consistently get requests for flat panel solutions from airlines and IFEC providers. The combination will provide our customers with unique technology that will enable lower operational costs while delivering high quality data throughput.”
