The Creators of Possible

Our History

In 2010, Rhett F. Spencer and Anthony J. Sutera accomplished what everyone else in the wireless communications industry said was impossible.

While working on technology using Near Field Magnetic Induction (NFMI), which uses short range magnetic fields to pass data, Tony and Rhett had an idea: What if you could minimize the magnetic field, save a lot of wasted energy and create a signal that was more powerful and more efficient? This was impossible. But they did it. Working on this idea is what sparked the eventual discovery of the power of nano-sized capacitors. And the result was an antenna that worked for long-range communications at very low power.

“What we’re talking about is a profound way of thinking; a whole paradigm change of antenna technology.” — ANTHONY J. SUTERA

The Creators of Possible: Anthony J Sutera and Rhett F Spencer

nano-capacitive antennas

nCAP antennas were created to be small and light enough to be worn as a patch on a soldier's shoulder, but more powerful than the largest military antenna in existence.

This nCAP Technology was first designed and patented to enhance or replace the military antenna systems used in almost all of the military’s wireless electronic devices.

A traditional antenna involves the use of a solid radiating and receiving aerial elements. This older technology primarily relies on magnetic energy to be sent or received in order to generate a signal. But newer nCAP technology is made up of molecular scale “nano-capacitors.” These nano capacitors can charge and discharge to radiate an amplified signal with no additional power supply. And just like that, nCAP Technologies created what was once thought of as impossible.

The strict requirements for a technology like this to be used in the military—helped shape its versatile nature in the early stages of development. nCAP had to evolve the technology as it was deployable in the most hostile environments, having extremely low power consumption, being rugged and compact, and having adaptable configurations.

“By taking a nano approach, a different materials approach…a different physics approach, it allowed us to get a better communication range with a smaller sized antenna.”

What has made this nano sized nCAP Technology so versatile is that it’s so small it can exist in a liquid form and can be applied to just about anything. The liquid medium in which the nCAP Technology is applied makes it universally applicable to any device that utilizes the emission or reception of wireless signals and relies on antennas of any configuration.

In addition to its unique, nano-material composition, nCAP Technology has many other benefits over traditional antenna systems: It is more energy-efficient, it has a stronger signal over long distances, it registers low-to-no heat signature, it is lightweight and versatile, it works underwater and underground...and it’s lower in cost than any other system attempting to achieve comparable performance.

That is why nCAP is the creator of possible.
