Antennas for mobile satcom terminals
This week I will start reviewing antenna product proposals by companies in the field.
There are several out there. I will start with Kymeta, a start up company that has attracted a lot of attention.
Kymeta offers a planar phased array based on metamaterials. It originates on research done at Duke University (USA). Presumably, each antenna element is loaded with a metamaterial cell unit whose response can be controlled externally electronically.
