We are excited to support our customer applications with always-on, mobile connectivity.”
The Kymeta KyWay terminal features an innovative electronically-steered, flat-panel Ku-band antenna. The slim and lightweight profile makes it easy to install in a variety of mobility settings, such as the top of a vessel, RV, plane, or command vehicle. The KyWay terminal has no moving parts, which simplifies installation and maintenance while eliminating much of the cost and infrastructure required by traditional VSAT antennas.
