The Focused Wave Technology Venture Group has obtained US Patent 6,914,588 issued July 5, 2005. The patent enables the manufacture of antennas with a smaller size than conventional types. FWT antenna technology offers many designs and operating frequencies to commercial as well as government users, with significant size and integration advantages. FWT technology works by encapsulating three-dimensional antenna elements in a spatially configured dielectric material. This causes antenna elements to transmit and receive electromagnetic energy as if the elements themselves were longer. Furthermore, the technology enables shaping of the external surfaces of the dielectric, thereby forming a lens and selectively increasing or decreasing the broadcast power in a given direction. This feature is not available in conventional antennas of any size.
