Our technology will be a global economic catalyst, especially in developing countries. Our clean, safe, and reliable wireless power systems will bring hot meals, clean drinking water, advanced medical treatment, and greater access to educational resources to the roughly one billion people around the world without power.
Our navigational systems will require less infrastructure and energy, cover a much larger area than conventional radio-based systems, and not be dependent on expensive satellites. A tower transmitting a few thousand watts could provide a signal covering a region the size of the entire continental United States. This signal could be used to develop redundant global and regional positioning and navigation capabilities governments have been seeking.
With Viziv Technologies’ patented processes and systems, electric power connected to our launch structures is wirelessly delivered to matched receivers all over the globe. The launch structure for a ZSW is not an antenna. Rather, it is a coupling probe that connects the power source to the global waveguide. While the size of the coupling probe does depend upon the frequency of operation, it will be much smaller than a traditional radio frequency antenna designed to transmit at the same frequency and distance.
In the early 1900s, German physicists Jonathan Zenneck and Arnold Sommerfeld first theorized that electromagnetic waves, under certain conditions, could use the surface of the earth as a waveguide. However, most of the scientific community ignored their findings for more than 60 years.
It wasn’t until the 1970s that brothers, Dr. James Corum and Kenneth Corum, re-discovered this research and began working to prove through experimentation the existence of what is now known as the Zenneck surface wave. In 2003, they succeeded.
Inspired by their discovery, Viziv Technologies was founded in August 2013 to develop the commercial applications of the ZSW.
