Kymeta Offers HTS Connectivity for Civilian Armored Vehicles

Kymeta™ is planning to work with Aurum Security to bring Kymeta mTenna™ HTS connectivity to VIP and civilian armored vehicles (CAV).

Now, CAV manufacturers and integrators will be able to deliver global connectivity, on the go, that their customers demand, without impacting the natural design lines of the vehicle. This means anyone from VIPs, to government officials, to royalty, will have access to high bandwidth connectivity wherever they go that is invisible, secure, and reliable — even in remote places.

Kymeta’s small, lightweight, low power, flat-panel satellite terminal will fit invisibly between the headliner and roof of a variety of vehicles to provide reliable internet access anywhere with a view of the sky. This is important for CAV integrators who want to deliver the latest technology, without compromising the natural aesthetics of the vehicle or highlighting which vehicle in a convoy is the communications hub. It also provides access where terrestrial networks are unavailable, and eliminates the threat of lost communication during catastrophes should terrestrial networks go down. Today’s connectivity solutions limit CAV and VIP vehicle integrators to the crowded cellular networks that are less secure, easily jammed and compromised, and unable to scale globally or across international borders.
Kymeta mTenna satellite solutions for CAVs will become commercially available Q2 2017.
