Invented in 1988 by our founder Dr. Nathan Cohen, fractal antennas have become globally accepted as the highest performing antenna elements available
We are pioneers and leaders in the field of metamaterials. These powerful resonators provide profound benefits applicable to a wide range of fields
From batteries, to heat exchangers, to circuit design - we have applied the natural power of fractals to a multitude of additional electromagnetic domains
Our technology allows us to create antennas that are inherently wide/multiband. This enables a single antenna to meet many wireless needs, reducing the number of overall antennas needed and lowering system costs. This also enables you to “future-proof” systems to 5G and other potential spectrum allocation changes.
The application of our fractal technology minimizes antenna form factors, often both size and weight. Our smaller and less obtrusive form-factors give you maximum design flexibility, better aesthetics and a lower likelihood of interaction with other antennas and electricals. Our small, light-weight solutions are also easier to install and require less mechanical support.
Our fractal antennas need fewer components than traditional designs to reach the same performance. This reduces the likelihood of component failure and provides better value for material cost.
Fractal technology allows our antennas to intrinsically deliver higher gain vs. comparable non-fractalized solutions. Higher gain can mean better coverage, fewer antennas, and stronger signals.
The Symphony-SP is the directional DAS antenna for 5G in stadiums, venues, and other high capacity areas.
It delivers continuous, market-leading wideband coverage from 600MHz-6GHz in an amazingly compact form-factor.
Our DAS antennas deliver wideband coverage from VHF all the way to 6GHz. With continuous wideband coverage, our solutions can truly future-proof your system. All this delivered with market leading performance, in small, aesthetic form-factors.
We design antennas to perform where no others can. We custom developed a chip antenna for use in MedTech devices, capable of functioning to specs while positioned inside a metal cavity. This antenna has been deployed in thousands of wireless MedTech devices, and is just one example of how we can solve your toughest RF problems.
This Spring Fractal Antenna Systems (“FRACTAL“) will be increasing antenna production capabilities, the Massachusetts based antenna manufacturer has announced.
According to Fractal CEO Nathan Cohen, “We have outgrown our existing manufacturing facilities due to strong customer demand for public safety and telecom antennas. Since we are not dependent on international supply chain bottlenecks, we can serve our customers with locally sourced products while maintaining competitive pricing.
The new facility (shown at the start of build-out) will feature increased floor space, allowing for production of several antenna lines simultaneously, quality control inspection, and expanded space for research and development.
Adds Cohen, “Fractal based technology enables our world-class in-house production capabilities. Our extensive patent portfolio, combined with almost 30 years of design and manufacturing experience, has allowed us to earn the trust and respect of our customers and markets globally. We are there, as always, for them.”
In addition to the firm’s fractal technology advantages, FRACTAL uses its patented proprietary 3D printing technology to leverage their American based production capabilities. “FRACTAL uses the next generation in antenna production, and our customers see those benefits today.”
The latest issue of the online magazine IEEE Insights repeats itself—on many scales. Highlighting the global use of fractals as antenna elements, the article celebrates the third of a century landmark for fractal antennas and their inventor, FRACTAL’s CEO Nathan Cohen.

Cohen notes: “Its been a crazy journey and it’s fun to see the world-changing invention and the inventor properly attributed. But, I am not a mere historical figure, as in the Monty Python sketch: ’I’m not dead yet’. In fact, I am doing my very best work right now. It’s an exciting time." Cohen is still ahead on the fractal front, with his 79th US patent now in allowance. FRACTAL’s new metamaterial inventions & technologies present enabling opportunities for growth industries in autonomous vehicles, satellites, superconductivity, optics, telecommunications, energy, radar, and electronics, among others. “It started with bending a piece of wire and an aluminum foil cutout. Where it is going is a new world of progress for everyone”, states Cohen.
BEDFORD, Mass.--Fractal Antenna Systems today reported that it has successfully increased production capacity for its world renowned in-building public safety/ERRCS antennas. FRACTAL’s proprietary technologies enable antennas with high performance in market leading form factors. Featuring wideband VHF, UHF, and 700/800MHz coverage for public safety frequencies in compact sizes with competitive pricing, Fractal’s ‘UA’ series public safety DAS antennas (including its popular UACM-V & UASM-V models) have become ubiquitous in municipal & commercial buildings, universities, residential buildings, transportation facilities, hospitals, factories, and datacenters.
BEDFORD, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Fractal Antenna Systems, Inc. (FRACTAL) today announced its first sales for the “Symphony-SP” – a new and innovative directional antenna solution for sub-6GHz 5G sector coverage in stadiums and high capacity venues. The Symphony-SP represents a material improvement to existing solutions, delivering wideband coverage in a highly reduced size and weight. The Symphony-SP provides broadband MIMO coverage from 617MHz to 6GHz, with coverage of all key licensed and unlicensed bands – including GSM, LTE, 5G, CBRS, WiFi, C-Band, and LAA. And this coverage comes in a surprisingly small package. The Symphony-SP weighs in at less than 10 lbs and wields a footprint of less than 13”x13”...
BEDFORD, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Fractal Antenna Systems, Inc. (FRACTAL) today announced upcoming issuance of a fundamental patent on unidirectional antennas, that replace existing applications with smaller, more versatile and visually pleasing options and form factors. The breakthrough is made possible by the firm’s proprietary fractal and metamaterial technology. Close-packing of the fractals makes this a metamaterial, producing a unique composite: a ‘fractal metamaterial,’ that enables wave bending, gain, and control in ways previously not attained. The new fractal metamaterial technology offers a superior alternative to Yagi-Uda antennas.
BEDFORD, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Smart roads with self-driving vehicles are an innovation with big problems to solve. Now, Fractal Antenna Systems, Inc. (FRACTAL) reports it has solutions to make road tags brighter to vehicular radar, for improved driverless tracking, and enabling the antiquation of LIDAR systems. The solutions also enable unique advantages for future flying cars/taxis, and even satellites. While reducing the reflected “scattering” to a radar signal, FRACTAL not only found a way to make the reflections disappear, but also found other unique fractal-based solutions that actually enhanced radar reflection. Such unusual reflectors are now called “superscatterers”.
