Fractal antennas, invented by Fractal Antenna Systems, enable smart clothing. They are built on repeating scales of size (self-similar), and their intricate structure allows them to be robust against detuning and cover many bands, and or be wideband. Fractal antennas can be built into the cloth and conform with it, an invisible part of the clothing itself.

Fractal Antenna Systems is currently working with its customers to provide custom wearable solutions that make smart clothing long lasting and cost effective.

Wearable fractal antennas first saw use in the US military, where Fractal Antenna Systems used its patented IP to come up with critical solutions. The firm created wearable fractal antennas and its baseline of experience on these garment-oriented antennas extends over 15 years. Furthermore it owns the source patent (7,830,319) for such garment fractal antennas, and has several pending patents as well, said the company in a press release.

In 2017, the need for better antennas for smart clothing finally caught up with the solution. Fractal antennas have been shown, by over a dozen of independent research groups worldwide, to be a great solution for smart clothing and in many cases the only one.

"This is one of many cases where the validation and the markets finally caught up with our innovations. Fractal antennas are becoming a big part of making clothing more than just a fashionable cover-up but an enabler for sensors and communication, keeping us all healthier and in-touch," said Nathan Cohen, CEO, Fractal Antenna Systems.

"The message is getting out that we are the 'go-to' guys for antenna solutions in smart clothing, and it is great to be working with these fantastic commercial applications," added Cohen. (KD)
