Kymeta’s deep roots in the maritime market extend back to the launch of its maritime product line in 2017 and guided the streamlined design of the Peregrine u8 LEO terminal, which is purpose-built for maritime applications. By tapping into OneWeb’s enterprise-grade connectivity, all large vessels – from super yachts to commercial fishing and shipping vessels – can now connect easily and seamlessly at sea as they would on land.

“Our maritime customers have a unique set of needs, whether that be reliable cyber-security and access to real-time maintenance or connecting to the cloud and streaming their favorite show. That’s 3 OneWeb Logowhy we’ve made it our mission to develop an equally unique solution,” said Walter Berger, President and Co-CEO, Kymeta. “As a proud partner of OneWeb, today marks an exciting day for Kymeta because it represents the fulfillment of our joint commitment to bring to market a low-power, low-profile LEO terminal, built to elevate and modernize maritime communications.”

Carole Plessy, VP Maritime and Europe at OneWeb added, “By harnessing the power of our constellation of LEO satellites, the Peregrine u8 from Kymeta will enable mobile connectivity at sea, on multiple devices in the same way as the home network in your living room. We are thrilled by today’s milestone in our partnership with Kymeta, as it’s proof of our collective leadership in advancement of the satellite industry and an acknowledgement that connectivity should be readily accessible, regardless of where you are or where you’re going.”

Traditional maritime antennas are bulky, requiring high power and below-deck hardware. In contrast, Kymeta’s slim, energy-efficient Peregrine u8 requires no specialized installation equipment and can be installed onboard by just two people within hours, rather than days.
