Redmond, Wash.-based Kymeta Corp., the communications company backed by Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates, says it’s starting to roll out a ruggedized portable terminal that’s designed to be set up for satellite links within four minutes.

“Commercial and government customers have shown great interest in a portable KyWay satellite terminal for use in defense, oil and gas, and first responder applications,” Nathan Kundtz, Kymeta’s founder, president and CEO, said in a news release issued March 13 at the Satellite 2018 conference in Washington, D.C.
