FRACTAL FIRM CONFIRMS BREAKTHROUGH METAMATERIAL ANTENNA TECHNOLOGY Bedford,MA July 31, 2017
Fractal Antenna Systems today confirmed that it has developed a new proprietary antenna technology with broad applications, particularly in point to point access with directional antennas.
The new technology is enabled
by the firm’s fractal metamaterial discoveries and inventions. Fractal
metamaterial devices are populated by closely packed ‘self similar’ shaped
electromagnetic structures. Developed by the firm, the use of fractal
metamaterials has already resulted in a broad range of critical attributes.
Now magnification ability publicly joins the list of essential practical
The new antenna technology, referred to as “FM/R”, has the
advantages of smaller size, wider bandwidths, and high efficiency, at high
magnification, or “gain”. In addition, it has a unique characteristic of being
nearly agnostic to its form factor shape. This means that most conventional,
prescribed ‘fishbone’, ‘arrowhead’, and ‘bubble’ shapes for directional
antennas are obsolete, or severely limited in comparisons of their footprint,
supporting electronics, and cost. In addition, the FM/R antennas may replace
several directional antennas at once, diminishing coveted tower and building
real estate needs for antennas.
Notes CEO and inventor Nathan Cohen:
”Others have oversold the case of metamaterials for lens-like applications,
and ended up with ‘me-too’ technology of limited practical value. We’ve
delivered on the promise.”
Cohen attributes previous impediments to a
failure to recognize the potential afforded by: “Greater sampling of the
nearfield, through fractals. The physics was sound, but the assumptions about
how to apply it were stuck in an age-old rut.”
“We’ve waiting several
years, and rumors have abounded, but before we publicly released FM/R, we
wanted there to be no doubt who created, invented, and owns it.” Several key
patents have been issued to the firm in the last few months, and many others
are pending, making the company the unique source for this valuable
The firm has already taken orders for its new FM/R technology from selected customers and will be announcing off-the-shelf FM/R product in October. In addition, an explanative science video, a signature of Fractal Antenna Systems, will be released in the Fall.
