Sky Perfect JSAT Deploys Kymeta Antenna for Land Mobile

Sky Perfect JSAT has become the first Asia-based satellite operator to deploy Kymeta’s flat panel, electronically steered mTenna Antenna Subsystem Module (ASM) to provide connectivity where terrestrial networks are unavailable.


During Kymeta’s KyTrek 3 tour across Japan, Kymeta embedded an mTenna ASM between the roof and the headliner of a Toyota Land Cruiser. The vehicle then demonstrated continuous, on-the-move connectivity that can be used to ensure first responders can communicate on the way to a natural disaster, when cellular networks may become compromised, as well as while they move around the disaster zone.

Sky Perfect JSAT has been using Kymeta mTenna technology for several weeks, demonstrating the capabilities of the solution for organizations across Tokyo. Kymeta mTenna ASMs perform bi-directional communication by connecting to assets such as Sky Perfect JSAT’s Geosynchronous Earth Orbit (GEO) satellites, for daily use and in crisis situations.

“With the KyTrek 3 Drive Across Japan deployment, we have been heavily focused on ensuring the Kymeta solution will work for first responders,” said David Kervin, general manager and vice president of Kymeta Government Solutions. “First responders require reliable, uninterrupted connectivity in life or death situations and as recent natural disasters have shown, terrestrial communication infrastructure is letting first responders down when time and reliability matter most.”
