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.
“Kymeta remains focused on adding relevant IP to our extensive patent portfolio and technology roadmap,”
said Ryan Stevenson, Ph.D., Vice President and Chief Scientist at Kymeta.
“Our advanced technology will offer capabilities that are critical to end users because it allows for two or more essential channels of communication. Whether you want to connect to two low Earth orbit (LEO) satellites or one geostationary (GEO) satellite and one LEO satellite, for example, multi-beam capabilities enable a simultaneous connection and provide essential backup, optimized data routing, and a better user experience.”
This newly-issued patent adds to the more than 140 U.S. and international patents and licenses issued to Kymeta, with an additional 178 pending, since the company was established in 2012. This issued patent represents an important step in the company’s technical lead over the market through continued innovation and advancement of Kymeta’s connectivity solutions.
The patent, U.S. 11,063, 661 B2, was issued on July 13, 2021.
Kymeta is unlocking the potential of broadband satellite connectivity, combined with cellular networks, to satisfy the overwhelming demand for comms on the move and making mobile global. Lepton Global Solutions, a Kymeta company, hosts the company’s satellite connectivity solutions and offers unique, complete, and turnkey bundled solutions to the market based on best-in-class technologies and tailored customer-centric services that meet and exceed customer mission requirements.
