Groundbreaking Satellite Antenna for Connected Cars

Through metamaterials technology he studied at Duke University, physicist Nathan Kundtz and founder of the company Kymeta developed a satellite antenna that can receive data at broadband speeds while cruising down the road. The antennas are 6-inch-wide, six-sided panels that can be installed as modules in a car's roof. Kundtz says the system requires less than 10 watts of power. If users need more bandwidth, more modules can be added into the roof.
