Kymeta has entered a partnership with Blue Edge Global to deliver downrange training to defence departments, militaries and emergency service teams globally using a team of military satellite communications (SATCOM) specialists.

The partnership was formed to offer instructor-led responsive training solutions in land, air, sea and space domains that require mission-critical connectivity.

The move will enable providing in-person advanced technical training for Kymeta solutions through Blue Edge Global, irrespective of location or deployment status.

Kymeta connect and government programs vice-president Isabel LeBoutillier said: “We’re excited to bring Blue Edge Global instructors with SATCOM and military operational expertise to the classroom and our field operations to serve the specialised needs of our military and first-responder customers.

“Providing training to deployed teams in a limited window of time can be extremely difficult, especially since the expert instructor may need the appropriate security clearances. Blue Edge Global’s team of security-cleared SATCOM experts will be able to deliver that training when our customers need it.”

Blue Edge Global president and CEO Michael D Phillips said: “At Blue Edge, our focus is to deliver training solutions for disruptive technologies that challenge the traditional ways of satellite communication where heavy equipment is difficult, time-consuming to operate, and takes precious time to set up.

“Kymeta has solved that with the versatile, easy to use and operate, Kymeta u8 and Kymeta Connect which offers satellite-cellular connectivity on the move. Done right, reliable communications on the move simply keeps teams connected, saves lives and enables high-risk missions that benefit both commercial and defence strategies.”

Headquartered in Redmond, Washington, US, Kymeta was formed in 2012 to commercialise metamaterials in satellite communications.

Lepton Global Solutions, a Kymeta company, hosts its satellite connectivity solutions.
