The “KIZUNA” is a communications satellite that enables super high-speed data communications of up to 1.2 Gbps to develop a society without any information availability disparity. The KIZUNA (WINDS) does not require costly ground equipment. If you install a small antenna, you can receive data at up to 155Mbps and transmit data at up to 6 Mbps. With a larger antenna of about 5 meters in diameter, super high-speed data communications of up to 1.2 Gbps will be available. (Such a service is mainly for organizations and companies.)
Wearable and fractal antennas could enable the 155 MBps speeds and possibly the 1.2 Gbps speeds. All your clothes would need to be a wearable fractal antenna or the fabric antenna would need to be placed into the roof of you car or house.
2. Fractal Antenna Systems, Inc. today announced development of a new metamaterial technology that uses fractals to make layered, partless antennas and related electronics. Fractals are complex geometric shapes built up from a repetition of a simple one, while metamaterials are composites with unusual properties not found in nature. These new antennas, called “metacloak” antennas, have unique performance abilities in bandwidth, gain, directivity, and versatility of form factor
In general, however, the fractal parts produce “fractal loading” and allow the creation of smaller antennas for a given frequency of use. It is common to achieve practical shrinkage of 50-75 percent by using a fractal design while maintaining very high performance levels.
