Kymeta Corp. has named e3 Systems to be the exclusive global distribution partner for the yacht market, representing Kymeta’s metamaterials-based electronically steered flat panel satellite antennas and connectivity services.

“Together, our companies are currently running sea trials on some iconic superyachts,” said Håkan Olsson, Vice President Maritime, Kymeta. “We are very pleased to have fully functional solutions available for yachts through e3 Systems.”

Kymeta mTenna technology weighs about 21.3 kilograms, making the flat panel antenna attractive for the superyacht market. The solutions e3 Systems will represent include the mTennau7 Antenna Subsystem Module (ASM) and KyWay terminal that were announced for commercial availability during the Satellite 2017 conference in Washington D.C. in March. Sea trials on superyachts started in early May and will continue on both sail and motor yachts in the Caribbean, Atlantic and Mediterranean over the next three months.

E3 Systems is in the process of appointing resellers as partners to sell, install and support Kymeta connectivity solutions. The company will also appoint shipyards and other organizations to become specialist locations with the facilities for the installation.

“We are very pleased to have this new technology working well at sea and also delighted to have signed this commercial agreement with Kymeta so we can now deliver this fantastic solution to the yacht market,” said Roger Horner, group managing director of e3 Systems.
