SKY Perfect JSAT Corporation has revealed that SJC and Kymeta signed a strategic partnership agreement recently to provide new mobile satellite communications technology to the Japanese market—SJC has also recently become an investor in Kymeta.
Kymeta has developed a satellite antenna technology that harnesses the traits of metamaterials. The firm's electronic beamforming mTenna (Kymeta mTenna™) technology enables moving vehicles to leverage high throughput connectivity via satellite. SJC expects Kymeta mTenna™ technology will make it possible to provide high-throughput connectivity to mobile platforms, such as emergency first response vehicles, transportation, IoT applications and more.
SJC and Kymeta will pursue business development and, as a part of this engagement, Kymeta will create solutions for SJC’s current and future customer needs. The two companies are planning a Kymeta product demo in Japan during the summer of 2017, which will also be the first opportunity for Kymeta to demonstrate their technology in APAC. SJC will continue to develop new areas of satellite business globally.
