Altair acquired the WRAP software business from Swedish company WRAP International. WRAP is a world-leading software technology for spectrum management and radio network planning for civil and defense organizations.

With 30 years of development, originally in Saab, the WRAP software covers a wide range of applications with focus on controlling radio spectrum assets for maximum use, including radio planning, interference and coverage calculations, complementing Altair’s existing software for wireless propagation modeling and network planning. WRAP users include major defense organizations, telecom authorities, broadcast operators and public-safety organizations.

“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 (internet of things),” said James Scapa, Altair’s CEO and founder. “We continue to focus on providing the world’s best software portfolio to help our customers meet their goals.”

WRAP technology will bolt on to Altair’s existing portfolio in high-frequency electromagnetics.

“The WRAP team is thrilled to become part of the Altair ecosystem,” said OIov Carlsson, technical director of 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 communications channels will benefit from this Altair ecosystem.”
