Kymeta, Sky Perfect JSAT demonstrate Asia-based satellite connectivity

Kymeta, a mobile connectivity company, and Sky Perfect JSAT Corporation (SJC), a satellite communications firm, have successfully completed the first Asia-based satellite connectivity deployment of Kymeta mTenna technology, the company said.

The implementation combined satellite capacity through the J5A SJC satellite with Kymeta´s flat panel, electronically steered mTennau7 antenna subsystem module (ASM) to demonstrate the ability to provide uninterrupted, reliable connectivity on the move, and where terrestrial networks are unavailable.

During KyTrek 3 across Japan, a Kymeta mTennau7 ASM was embedded between the roof and the headliner of a Toyota Land Cruiser. The vehicle then demonstrated continuous on-the-move connectivity that can be utilized to ensure first responders can communicate on the way to a natural disaster, when cellular networks may become compromised, as well as while they move around the disaster zone.

SJC has been utilizing Kymeta mTenna technology for several weeks, demonstrating the capabilities and benefits of the solution for many organizations across Tokyo.
