Kymeta Launches First Multi-Orbit, On-the-Move Flat-Panel Antenna for Military Users
Building upon proven expertise in providing resilient communications for demanding military environments, the Kymeta Osprey™ u8 HGL, a hybrid GEO-LEO terminal, will be commercially available in early Q1 2024
“In today’s modern military environments, connectivity on the move has cemented itself as one of the critical keys to success,” said Walter Berger, President and Co-CEO, Kymeta. “More than any sector, the military demands truly reliable, flexible, and durable on-the-move communications to enable its operational and training requirements. Our new terminal delivers military customers the resilient communications they need by allowing them to easily switch between LEO and GEO multi-orbit networks, always ensuring availability and redundancy. With the collaboration of both Eutelsat and OneWeb, now Eutelsat Group, we’re proud to continue our proven track record with the military to provide innovative, market-leading solutions.”
Chris Moore, retired 2* RAF Officer and VP Defence & Security at Eutelsat OneWeb added, “Each orbit has its unique strengths, so if you combine LEO and GEO together, you get the benefits of both, especially if you create a multi-layered architecture to make them work together. It’s this that will prove invaluable to armed forces, with users being able to route their data via the most optimal means.
By partnering with Kymeta and its innovative terminal solutions like the Osprey u8 HGL, we can provide militaries with fast, high bandwidth and low latency connectivity - wherever they are in the world.”
“The Kymeta Osprey u8 HGL multi-orbit on-the-move antenna is a leap forward in innovation, offering warfighters in military environments a lifeline when no other communications source might be available,” said Kevin Steen, CEO of OneWeb Technologies, the U.S. proxy of Eutelsat OneWeb. “We are proud to put this innovative new LEO-GEO multi-orbit solution in the hands of our U.S. military customers, empowering them with unmatched, truly reliable and resilient global connectivity capabilities.”
Attendees of the upcoming AUSA 2023 Annual Meeting and Exposition in Washington, DC on October 9-11 are encouraged to visit booth #4256 to see the Osprey u8 HGL in person and to speak with a member of the Kymeta team.
