Clair Global Intros CF 1090 Fractal Antenna

cf1090_fractalantenna.JPGLITITZ, PA – DECEMBER 2011: Clair Global is introducing the CF 1090 Fractal Antenna for live entertainment applications worldwide. The creation of the CF 1090 is a study in guided serendipity.

In the summer of 2010, Clair Global acquired Wireless First. Both the company’s founder, Kevin Sanford and his chief engineer Josh Flower had been working on a new wireless antenna in their shop for several years. Now, as part of the Clair team, they moved quickly to take advantage of Clair’s innovative spirit and talented staff. The final stroke of genius was the inclusion of Dr. Nathan Cohen, whose decades of experience as founder of Fractal Antenna Systems Inc. make him one of the world’s foremost experts on the technology at the CF 1090′s heart. Using fractal technologies, whereby self-similar scaling of antenna elements both reduces housing size and increases frequency range, the CF 1090 is circular polarized and orientation insensitive and delivers superior performance despite a uniquely unobtrusive, camera-friendly design. more…
