Kymeta Announces Grant of New U.S. Patent for Multi-Beam Capabilities Enabling Simultaneous Multi-Orbit Connectivity

Kymeta’s electronically steered flat-panel antenna technology can form two distinct full duplex beams for connection redundancy and intelligent data management.

REDMOND, Wash. (Kymeta PR) — Kymeta, the communications company making mobile global, announced today that the United States Patent and Trademark Office awarded Kymeta Corporation a U.S. Patent for its multi-beam antenna configuration, enabling redundant, simultaneous, multi-orbit satellite connectivity.

Kymeta’s innovative patented technology can generate two beams simultaneously with a single antenna panel, enabling the tracking of two satellites across multiple constellations and seamless traffic hand off from the initial satellite to the second. Kymeta’s metamaterials approach forms, receives, and transmits multiple distinct beams, each with its own receive/transmit (RX/TX) connection, for redundant connectivity and intelligent data management.
