Kymeta momentum continues


Kymeta has announced the introduction of three new product brands for the u8 terminal including the Hawk TM u8, Goshawk TM u8, and Osprey TM u8. Along with unveiling the new Kymeta branding, the company announced the Osprey u8 product for the military is now shipping. In addition, the company introduced significantly lower pricing for the Hawk u8 that will open additional markets and vertical opportunities.


This follows last week’s news of $84 million in new financing for Kymeta to further evolve the company’s growth as it prepares to expand offerings for LEO and defense customers and evolve the u8 product line from the full Ka band into the Ku band in the future. In a landmark year for Kymeta, the company was also named one of the World’s Most Innovative Companies and listed as number 5 on the 10 Most Innovative Space Companies of 2022 by Fast Company.


Through strong relationships with key partners including iDirect, Comtech, and Kratos to enable solutions that cross over multiple applications and groundbreaking trials with Intelsat and OneWeb that demonstrate future-proof capabilities including satellite-enabled 5G and interoperability with low Earth orbit (LEO) and geostationary (GEO) satellite constellations, Kymeta’s market momentum in the key areas of defense, government, public safety and commercial industries has continued to see significant interest from customers. Since the launch of its military-specific communications on the move terminal, the Osprey u8, there have been significant interest and acquisitions by multiple military branches with the Department of Defense (DoD) and other country Ministries of Defense.


“There is a great deal of excitement around Kymeta,” said Neville Meijers, Chief Strategy Officer at Kymeta. “This all builds up to our company vision; to revolutionize the way we work, live and interact anytime, anywhere, while on the move in a globally connected world. We’ve received a great deal of positive market interest as Kymeta continues to reach our business goals. Our continued growth, sales, and development of innovative products continue to position us as the leader in this space. We’ll be at SatShow all week and are excited to be announcing additional high-profile partnerships, so stay tuned.”
