Kymeta, the communications company making mobile global, announced today that it has been selected to participate in the U.S. Army’s Armored Brigade Combat Team (ABCT) satellite communications on the move (SOTM) pilot program. The program will assess communications solutions on select vehicles to enhance battlefield network and command post communications.

The ABCT pilot program will be led by General Dynamics Mission Systems, and Kymeta will supply eight u8 terminals for integration and testing on a variety of ABCT vehicles. Kymeta is the world’s first and only metamaterial-based SOTM terminal, and its electronically steered flat panel antenna platform utilizes satellite and cellular connectivity for communications on the move and on the pause.

Kymeta’s advanced SOTM terminals automatically acquire and track satellites, join associated networks, and establish communications without moving parts or operator intervention. In addition, the u8 supports multiple modems and network architectures, ensuring that legacy systems are interoperable and that they have the highest levels of security, encryption, and authentication.
