Fractal Tiling Arrays



Fractal Antenna Systems, Inc. disclosed that it has filed for patent
protection on a new class of antenna arrays that use close-packed
arrangements of fractal elements to get superior performance
characteristics.

The firm's scientists are the discoverers and development pioneers of
antenna elements with fractal shapes. These geometric forms that repeat
their structure over several scales afford a boon to antenna uses in
wireless, microwave, RFID, telecom, and other industries where multiple
frequencies, small sizes, and high performance are important drivers.

The new technology will allow for flat and versatile solutions to satellite
television and radio, GPS, wireless LAN, marine, vehicular, and 'smart
antenna' needs. It will also have use in other applications, such as radio
astronomy and defense.
