Kymeta—the communications company delivering on the promise of global, mobile connectivity—announced today that its Kymeta Government Solutions (KGS) division has successfully completed month-long sea trials on small watercraft with a U.S. Government customer using Kymeta KALO™ satellite internet services bundled with Kymeta KyWay™ terminals.

Leveraging Kymeta KALO satellite internet services, powered by the IntelsatOne® Flex network and bundled with Kymeta KyWay terminals, Kymeta and the U.S. Government customer worked together to test Kymeta products and services on small boats. The trials were performed as the vessels moved from inland waterways to distances as far as 100 miles offshore, experiencing varying sea states and weather conditions. During the trial period, Kymeta's U.S. Government customer remarked on the exceptional performance of both Kymeta's KyWay terminal and KALO service.

Kymeta's satellite connectivity data packages offer flexible options available in 1 GB to 80 GB per month plans. "Kymeta KALO services redefine government satellite connectivity," said David Kervin, General Manager and Vice President, Kymeta Government Solutions. "KALO is a fully-provisioned, end-to-end connectivity solution which unlocks global, mobile access for government customers who have historically not had the flexibility, cost advantage and ease of acquisition KALO can provide." KALO also provides additional benefits as a non-Committed Information Rate service. "KALO is ideal for training and other applications," continued Kervin. "It is the ideal complement to the CIR satellite services already utilized by KGS global government customers and easily fits within many government users credit card budgets."

The partnership between Kymeta and Intelsat (NYSE:I) is bringing mobile communications to places it has never been before, and unlocking new opportunities for customers around the world. "The mission-critical work of government customers demands fast, flexible and reliable broadband connectivity," said Skot Butler, President, Intelsat General Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of Intelsat. "Our partnership with Kymeta is driven by the desire to simplify and accelerate access to cost-effective connectivity to U.S. government customers wherever and whenever they need it. Kymeta KALO services deliver an innovative solution that can adapt to meet the emerging connectivity needs of government customers."

About Kymeta

What's the missing link to connecting billions of people to high-speed mobile access? Antennas. And Kymeta offers the world's only commercially-viable electronically-scanning satellite antennas and terminals. Kymeta antennas and terminals deliver high-throughput communications for land, sea, and air, making mobile connectivity as available as a view of the sky. Plus, the world's largest satellite operator, Intelsat, has joined forces with Kymeta to deliver KALO global access services that combine with Kymeta antennas and terminals to provide revolutionary mobile connectivity. Without Kymeta mTenna™ technology, connecting and staying connected to all those new satellites while on the move will be difficult, if not impossible.

If it moves, Kymeta will keep it connected. Anywhere.
