About Kebni

About us

The increasing use of data and need for data transmission in challenging off-grid environments is driving demand for robust technologies and equipment that can ensure stable transmission both at land and at sea. Simultaneously, the emergence of autonomous equipment and vehicles in a wide range of industries and applications is driving a significant increase in demand for advanced and cost competitive inertial sensor solutions.  

With its proprietary software for stabilization and inertial sensors (IMU) at its core, Kebni develops, manufactures, and markets MIL-standard satellite communications antennas for maritime on-the-move applications, as well as it provides high-end on-the pause satellite antennas for land-based vehicles through its subsidiary Satmission . Kebni’s increased commitment to the market for inertial sensors has resulted in several new product variants. The new generation of IMU’s provided by Kebni are suited for a wide range of customer applications, for example in the automotive industry and military applications, as well as in Kebni’s own system for monitoring structural safety, which is the first in a range of proprietary IMU applications.  

Kebni offers technically advanced and robust products in the form of both standardized and customized solutions, based on modular platforms for the most demanding customers. Through its product range, standard as well as customer-specific, the company aims to achieve good and stable profitability by being a technology-leading niche player.
