Mallorca by Land, Air and Sea

Spain; e3 Systems and Kymeta Corporation sign an exclusive global distribution agreement to deliver innovative flat panel satellite solutions to the superyacht market.

Tuesday, 06 June 2017


Mallorca, – e3 Systems announced today that Kymeta has named the company to be the exclusive global Distribution Partner for the yacht market, representing Kymeta revolutionary metamaterials-based electronically steered flat panel satellite antennas and connectivity services. e3 Systems will make the solutions available through select Value Added Resellers and other strategic partners.

 “The commitment and insight that e3 has provided over the last 3 and a half years has been very valuable to Kymeta,” said Håkan Olsson, Vice President Maritime, Kymeta. “Together, our companies are currently running sea trials on some iconic superyachts. We are very pleased to have fully functional solutions available for yachts through e3 Systems.”

Kymeta flat panel solutions are changing the face of yachting as unsightly domes can be eliminated with the use of Kymeta mTenna™ technology. Weighing about 21.3 kilograms makes the Kymeta flat panel antenna particularly 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 2017 and will continue on both sail and motor yachts in the Caribbean, Atlantic and Mediterranean over the next 3 months.

e3 Systems is in the process of appointing Value Added Resellers as specialist partners to sell, install and support Kymeta connectivity solutions. e3 will also be appointing shipyards and other organisations to become specialist locations with the facilities for the installation of Kymeta flat panel mTenna technology and KyWay terminals combined with KĀLO™ high-throughput access services.

Roger Horner, Group Managing Director of e3 Systems said, “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.”
