e3 and Kymeta Win Award for Excellence in Innovation

In early 2017, Kymeta released the world’s only commercially viable electronically scanning flat satellite antennas and terminals, and is now offering the technology for use on superyachts. e3, Kymeta’s exclusive superyacht distribution partner, has been instrumental in bringing the new technology to the superyacht market, having worked with Kymeta for the last four years.

Now they and their Palma-based global superyacht distributor e3 Systems have delivered on their promise of global, mobile connectivity and been awarded the International Superyacht Society Award for Excellence in Innovation for doing so

Given to an individual or business that has demonstrated innovation in their endeavours within the previous year, the award was presented to Roger Horner, Managing Director, e3 and Håkan Olsson, Vice President of Maritime, Kymeta, at the ISS Gala Dinner 2017 at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts, Fort Lauderdale,

“It is a real honour to receive this award from the ISS and I’d like to thank everyone at e3, Kymeta and our partners for all their hard work,`’ said Horner. “I’d also like to offer our gratitude to the owner and crew of the White Rose of Drachs and Maltese Falcon for their part in the successful sea trials which have been fundamental in bringing this game-changing technology to market and ensuring that reliable, ubiquitous, mobile connectivity on the water is now a reality.”

This timely award arrives following e3 and Kymeta jointly showcasing the Kymeta™ flat panel antennas at FLIBS following a fantastic response to the innovative technology at the Monaco Yacht Show earlier in the year.

Håkan Olsson, said, “Commercially available to superyachts for the first time, our award-winning antennas and terminals will be bundled with Kymeta’s KĀLO internet access services. This first-of-a-kind technology is redefining connectivity on the water and over the coming months we shall see a rapidly increasing number of yachts opting to go domeless.”
