Originally a spin-off from the University of Alcalá, near Madrid, newFASANT is home to world renowned industry pioneers. Its software portfolio containing various full-wave and high frequency asymptotic electromagnetic solvers, when combined with Altair Feko, will allow Altair to leapfrog its competition and offer advanced solutions in relevant technology areas like V2V, Doppler effects, radome analysis, periodic structures, reflectarrays and others.
"We are thrilled to welcome newFASANT and its brilliant engineers to Altair", stated 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 worlds toughest engineering problems."
"We couldn't be more excited to join the ranks of such a globally relevant and growing software player", stated 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 expert 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.
