FRACTAL Steps Up Production of the Symphony-SP™

JANUARY 13, 2022

Citing increased demand, Fractal Antenna Systems, Inc. today announced it has increased its production of the Symphony SP™ antenna. Already known in the industry as the ‘go to antenna’ for 5G midband, the Symphony SP™ has become the antenna of choice for large venues, especially stadium installs.

Notes CEO Nathan Cohen: “Carriers and installers have rapidly discovered that the Symphony SP™ is the antenna they need now, and in the future, with its wideband performance covering all US commercial cellular frequencies in usage, including in the 3-5 GHz range, and beyond.” For inquiries on pricing, ship dates, and availability email:

FRACTAL Expands Production Capacity

FEBRUARY 4, 2022

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.”

IEEE Article Highlights Fractal Antenna Inventor

August 4, 2021

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.

Fractal Boosts Public Safety Antenna Production

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”...

Fractal's Metablade technology enables new, superior alternative to Yagis

June 12, 2019

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.

Fractals Brighten Radar Reflections for Driverless Cars, Satellites

February 4, 2019

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”.
