Company Overview

In 1994, after completing their PhDs at the University of Stellenbosch, Gronum Smith and Frans Meyer established EM Software & Systems, a company consulting in electromagnetics.  EMSS quickly identified the local and international need for the simulation of antennas on electrically large platforms. A hybrid solution between the accurate method of moments and asymptotic high frequency techniques promised to be an elegant and practical solution.  Cooperation between EMSS and Ulrich Jakobus, who did research on these hybrid techniques at the University of Stuttgart, followed and resulted in the commercial code FEKO.
