SANFORD, Fla. PathFinder Digital and Kymeta, a global communications company, entered into an agreement for the development of enhanced features for the Kymeta u8 MIL terminal.
PathFinder Digital, a specialist in the design, manufacturing, and aftermarket support of mobile satellite ground terminals (VSATs), primarily for defense applications, is providing Kymeta with engineering and fabrication services for the ruggedization and production of Kymeta's new u8 MIL terminals built for military markets.
According to the company, the u8 MIL hybrid terminal is designed to provide a complete connectivity solution for communications-on-the-move and networks-on-the-move. The u8 MIL hybrid terminal, with Kymeta's software defined, electronic beam-steering technology, is engineered to be low profile and easy to mount on vehicles and vessels.
