Kymeta integrates u8 antenna with Military-certified Comtech satellite tv for pc modem
Kymeta has paired its u8 antenna with Comtech EF Data’s SLM-5650B modem to enable users to leverage existing network hardware and enable satellite communications on the go.
The two companies have teamed up and used the Open Antenna to Modem Interface Protocol to integrate the u8 antenna with the Comtech modem, Kymeta said Tuesday.
Designed for government and military applications, the SLM-5650B modem complies with MIL-STD-188-165A / B standards and supports FIPS 140-2 certified encryption. The technology has global broadband Satcom certification from the US Army Strategic Command.
Fred Kornberg, chairman and CEO of Comtech Telecommunications, said the partnership expands the range of government and military missions that the company’s products can support.
Kymeta is a Redmond, Washington-based company providing Satcom technology and services to support military, government, and commercial customers. Its u8 technology has a transportable configuration, u8 GO, which is suitable for quick deployments.
