e3 Systems® & Kymeta Preview Flat Panel Satellite Solutions in Monaco

E3 Logo 4

After three years as Kymeta’s Collaboration Partner for Yachting, e3 Systems has earned the designation as a Kymeta Certified Partner (KCP) for their metamaterials-based electronically steered flat panel satellite solutions.

The e3 team has worked closely with Kymeta and has contributed their extensive knowledge of current solutions and owners’ needs, in order to ensure the panels fulfil the specific requirements of the yacht market. As a Kymeta Certified Partner (KCP), e3 has been trained to deliver customized yacht solutions and installations using Kymeta mTenna® flat panel satellite solutions that meet the needs of owners, captains and crew.

Kymeta signed an agreement with Panasonic in January 2016 to use their worldwide, next generation satellite network that leverages wide and spot beams ensuring the greatest throughput and coverage with HTS now and XTS in 2017 and beyond. This will be the world’s largest HTS Ku network. It is flexible, scalable and delivers high speed, high capacity internet and live TV.

Roger Horner, Group Managing Director of e3 Systems said,

“The combination of unique flat panels, which can be designed into the skin of a yacht to be invisible, with the most advanced Ku band global network in the world makes for a compelling satellite communications solution. Apart from the huge potential bandwidth capabilities numbered in the Gbps, all at manageable costs, we now have broadcast TV included across the global network.

This makes the solution not only compelling but also a must-have! We are excited to be the first partner to bring the Kymeta solutions to the yacht market and delighted to have signed this landmark agreement so that we can now prepare to deliver this ground-breaking solution that will enable owners and guests to communicate as they do at home and in the office.”
