Altair Acquires newFASANT

Altair has announced the acquisition of newFASANT, a company offering software for computational and high-frequency electromagnetics. The software address a wide range of electromagnetic problems in areas such as antenna design and placement, radar cross-section (RCS) analysis, automotive V2V/ADAS, and infrared/thermal signatures.

Originally a spin-off from the University of Alcalá, near Madrid, newFASANT its software portfolio contains both full-wave and high frequency asymptotic electromagnetic solvers. COmbinging this technology with with Altair Feko, will allow users to implement solutions covering areas such as V2V, Doppler effects, radome analysis, periodic structures, reflectarrays and others.

‘We are thrilled to welcome newFASANT and its brilliant engineers to Altair,’ said James Scapa, Altair’s chief executive officer and founder. ‘By combining its people and software into our advanced solutions offerings, we are clearly emerging as the dominant player in high-frequency electromagnetics – technology that is critical for solving some of the world’s toughest engineering problems.’

‘We couldn’t be more excited to join the ranks of such a globally relevant and growing software player,’ said Felipe Cátedra, chief executive officer of newFASANT. ‘Ever since we spun off from the University of Alcalá, we have grown the sophistication of our offerings, but by joining a powerhouse like Altair, we will be able to commercially expand our footprint immensely.’

This move solidifies Altair’s place as a world leader in high-frequency electromagnetics, a critical technology that supports advanced digital communications for areas such as IoT, cellular networks, mobile phones and connected devices, V2V, radar and radio.
