According to a recent announcement, Altair, a technology company providing solutions in product development, high-performance computing (HPC), and data analytics, has acquired the WRAP software business from Swedish company WRAP International. WRAP is a software technology designed for spectrum management and radio network planning for civil and defense organizations.

With 30 years of development, originally in Saab, the WRAP software reportedly focuses on controlling radio spectrum assets for maximum usage, including radio planning, interference, and coverage calculations. Altair said that it complements its existing Feko, newFASANT, and WinProp software for wireless propagation modeling and network planning.

“WRAP software will be a strategic complement to Altair’s portfolio as we fortify our solutions for areas like wireless communications including 5G, connectivity, and IoT,” said James Scapa, CEO and founder, Altair. “We continue to focus on providing the world’s best software portfolio to help our customers meet their goals.”

“The WRAP team is thrilled to become part of the Altair ecosystem,” said Olov Carlsson, technical director, WRAP. “Since our inception, we have become trusted experts in spectrum management and radio network planning for civil and defense organizations, and we know that our wide-range of customers working to provide mission-critical safety communication channels will benefit from this Altair ecosystem.”
