SKY Perfect JSAT Corporation announced that JSAT and Kymeta signed a strategic partnership agreement to provide new mobile satellite communications technology to the Japanese market, and also announced that the company has recently invested in Kymeta.

Kymeta has developed a satellite antenna technology that harnesses the traits of metamaterials. This electronic beamforming mTenna technology enables moving vehicles to leverage high throughput connectivity via satellite. JSAT expects the Kymeta mTenna will make it possible to provide high-throughput connectivity to mobile platforms such as emergency first response vehicles, transportation, Internet of Things (IoT) applications and more.

In addition, JSAT and Kymeta will pursue business development. As a part of this engagement, Kymeta will create solutions for JSAT’s current and future customer needs. The two companies are planning a Kymeta product demo in Japan this summer, which will be the first opportunity for Kymeta to demonstrate in Asia-Pacific.
