52017-03-10. SKY Perfect JSAT и Kymeta объявили о создании пертнерства.
Оператор спутниковой связи SKY Perfect JSAT Corporation объявил о подписании соглашения о стратегическом партнерстве с Kymeta. Целью партнерства является оказание услуг по предоставлению новых услуг для мобильных японских пользователей. В рамках совместной работы Kymeta разработает новую легкую антенну, которая позволит автомобилям и т.п. машинам осуществлять спутниковую связь.Тэги: JSAT CorporationKymeta
62017-09-12. Компания Kymeta сформировала новый бизнес юнит.
Компания Kymeta объявила о создании нового подразделения (Kalo Business Unit). Причиной выделения бизнес подразделения в отдельную структурную единицу названо желание подготовится к практической реализации совместного с Intelsat проекта по предоставлению высокопроизводительных спутниковых услуг. Основой нового предложения будут являться терминалы KyWay и антенны mTenna. В качестве космического сегмента будет использоваться сервис IntelsatOne. Тэги: KymetaIntelsat
72017-09-20. Kymeta получила контракт от NASA на разработку Ка диапазонного терминала.
Космическое агентство США заключило контракт с американской Kymeta. Источником финансирования будут являться выделенные гранта в рамках программы открытых инноваций (Small Business Innovation Research, SBIR). По результатам их реализации участники проекта рассчитывают получить плоскопанельный Ка диапазонный терминал, который будет устанавливаться на кубсаты и другие низкоорбитальные спутники. Тэги: KymetaDARPA
82017-09-21. Компания Kymeta обнародовала новые данные.
Компания Kymeta объявила о том, что она поставила первые 400 плоскопанельные антенны, а следовательно она вправе рассчитывать на то, что следующий год станет для нее переломным за счет выхода в те сектора экономики где ранее спутниковая связь не пользовалась популярностью. В качестве подтверждения этого прогноза компания обнародовала данные о том, что ее 70-и сантиметровые Ku диапазонные антенны уже получили тысячи предзаказов, а само их производство начнется на фабрике в Калифорнии начиная со следующей недели.
В свою очередь представитель Inmarsat отметил, что от Kymeta она слышал эти заявления, начиная с 2014 года, поэтому оператор спутниковой связи предпочтет подождать. Кроме этого, в заявлении было отмечено, что за последние несколько лет на рынке появлялось не менее 15 технологий, которые в итоге оказались бесперспективными. Вместе с тем, по мнению Inmarsat, желание компании наладить массовый выпуск антенн является верным шагом, поскольку может привести к уменьшению стоимости для конченого пользователя. Тэги: KymetaInmarsat
92017-10-10. Sky Perfect JSAT начал использовать системы от Kymeta.
Японская Sky Perfect JSAT станет первым азиатским оператором спутниковой связи который установит "плоские" антенны от компании Kymeta в районах где прокладка наземных сетей является затруднительной. В качестве наземной части проекта оператор задействует электронаводимую mTenna Antenna Subsystem Module (ASM). При этом ранее в ходе своего презентационного турне по Японии Kymeta также демонстрировала возможности по использованию своей антенны совместно с автомобилем Toyota Land Cruiser, что позволяет ей надеяться на заключение контрактов с местными спец потребителями.

CST SUCCESS STORY KYMETA DEVELOPS NOVEL METAMATERIAL ANTENNAS WITH CST STUDIO SUITE THE IDEA: SATELLITE BROADBAND, FROM ANYWHERE THE CHALLENGE: TUNING AND PROTOTYPING AN ARRAY WITH THOUSANDS OF ELEMENTS Satellite broadband promises fast, flexible internet access from anywhere in the world. Although major satellite operators have already begun deploying next-generation satellites with high data throughputs, accessing these currently requires bulky, expensive equipment with high power requirements for the user. Unlocking the full potential of these data links requires an antenna solution that can track satellites while also being portable enough to attach to a vehicle or take into the field. MSA-T uses several thousand sub-wavelength resonators, which are individually activated to shape and direct the beam (Figure 2). This meant that designing a working metamaterials-based antenna required numerous interdependent variables to be optimized. Kymeta used the frequency domain solver in CST MICROWAVE STUDIO® (CST MWS) to quickly and accurately model the complex interactions between various design features, significantly easing the prototyping and development effort. CST’s macro-driven model generation tools were a good fit to array design. Using macros to generate the multitude of elements that comprise the antennas sped up the process greatly. To enable widespread adoption of satellite broadband, especially for mobile users, Kymeta is developing and marketing mobile satellite communications terminals using a new reconfigurable antenna technology, known as Metamaterials Surface Antenna Technology (MSA-T) , shown in Figure 1. This offers the electronic beam-steering performance of a typical phased array, but with much lower power consumption. A dramatic cost reduction is achieved compared to mechanical or phased array products and many of the size, weight and power challenges associated with the existing techniques are alleviated. For simulating larger sections and even the whole array, Kymeta turned to the time domain solver. The MSA-T arrays consist of thousands or tens of thousands of elements, and can reach 60 λ by 60 λ in size. To simulate these complex, electrically-large arrays, Kymeta used GPU acceleration with four Nvidia Tesla® K40 cards. Together, these made it possible to simulate large sections of the array within a day. About Kymeta Corporation Kymeta Corporation is commercializing a new, innovative software-enabled metamaterials-based electronic beamforming antenna for satellite communications. Kymeta has been named by MIT Technology Review, as well as by CNBC, as one of 2013’s 50 most disruptive companies as part of their annual list of the world‘s most innovative technology companies. Kymeta was selected by Future in Review as a 2014 FiRe Starter company. The company is based in Redmond, Washington, and operates on a worldwide basis. Figure 1 A prototype of the MSA-T antenna array and feed network. For more information, please visit www.kymetacorp.com. CST SUCCESS STORY Figure 2 CST MWS nearfield simulation result, showing beam-forming MSA-T. Once Kymeta had a viable initial design, it was fine-tuned using the Trust Region Framework optimizer. This is a powerful local optimization algorithm built into the CST MICROWAVE STUDIO design environment, which can use sensitivity information to speed up the optimization process. Optimizations were carried out over multiple variables – in some cases, as many as 40 in a single run – to improve the characteristics of the antenna. The parameters that described the excitation of the array were also optimized using the same tools to allow high-performance beam steering. THE RESULT: A SMALL, PRACTICAL SATELLITE TERMINAL Virtual prototyping reduced Kymeta’s prototyping costs by reducing the number of real prototypes required during the design process. It also helped inform the decision making process, offering insight into what worked and what did not. The range of import/export tools for CAD formats such as Gerber, DXF and SAT made it feasible to start and develop designs using CST products, and then send them to other platforms and vendors when necessary. From the founding of Kymeta right through to the production of field-tested prototypes, CST STUDIO SUITE® has been an integral part of the design process at the company. Using CST STUDIO SUITE, Kymeta were able to design a range of antennas with a smaller form factor and reduced weight, while also keeping costs and power consumption low.

Without it, the challenge of designing numerous interrelated antenna features would have been nearly insurmountable.« Adam Bily Lead RF Design Engineer Kymeta Corporation Redmond, Washington www.cst.com
