Pushing the Boundaries of Wireless Power
Founded in 2008 by physicist and technologist Hatem Zeine, Ossia is challenging people’s core assumptions about what is possible with wireless power.
Headquartered in Redmond, WA, Ossia’s Cota technology redefines wireless power by safely delivering targeted energy to devices at a distance. Ossia’s patented RF smart antenna technology automatically keeps multiple devices charged without any user intervention, enabling an efficient and truly wire-free, powered-up world that is always on and always connected.

Innovative FCC Certified Technology
As the licensing provider, Ossia helps your organization license and build Cota technology into your devices or transmitters.
The Cota Power Receiver, embedded into any device initiates the ‘conversation’ by sending a beacon signal (see diagram below) to find a Cota Power Transmitter. The transmitter then sends power back in the same exact paths. This ‘conversation’ between device and transmitter happens 100x/second, to send power safely to devices at a distance while in motion. All your Cota-enabled devices will receive power simultaneously.
Click on the person or any of the devices and move them around the room. Watch the Cota beacon signal bounce off of walls and objects while always avoiding the person. Power is delivered along this same path, while in motion and at a distance.
- Wireless Power to Become Mandatory in US, Asia, and Beyond
“Is this device Cota®-enabled?” Wireless power demand is growing and will soon be a must-have feature in consumer and commercial electronic products alike. According to Report Insights, the world is experiencing high market adoption of wireless charging solutions. In fact, their research shows that “The global wireless power transmission market is estimated to register a CAGR of 20.5% during 2022-2030.” That translates to $32.6 billion U.S. by the year 2030, only a little more than 6 years away. Businesses must be prepared. Real Wireless Power is power delivered over air and at a distance, without the need for charging pads or batteries. Demand for wirelessly powered products is increasing, due to the drive for sustainability and need for wireless devices in areas with limited wired power networks. Also, according to the report, “wireless power transmission is anticipated to become mandatory … due to the large-scale technology adoption among consumers as well as businesses.” Wireless power as differentiator, a competitive advantage, and a capabilities enhancer … these have been expected, and are often firsts as motivators for early adopters. When wireless power transmission becomes mandatory, that completely changes the game.
- Ossia Heads to Europe to Meet with Wireless Power Early Adopters and Innovation Leaders at Mobile World Congress (MWC)
Ossia to demonstrate the ARCHOS Cota Wireless Power Security Camera and other Cota-enabled tech products at MWC in Spain. From innovation ecosystems to sustainable mobility to artificial intelligence, mobile technology leaders are coming together at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, to talk about recent technology successes, the latest product launches, and what’s next. Ossia has several meetings scheduled with global company leaders looking to incorporate wireless power technology into their products, services, and systems. Cota® Real Wireless Power™, Ossia’s flagship technology, is approved by more than 60 countries, including the FCC, CE, and UK regulatory bodies, for use at any distance, and organizations appear to be eager to get their systems set up; our schedule is almost completely booked up! At our booth, we will be showcasing, alongside our partner ARCHOS, the first wirelessly powered security camera. It’s exciting to see wireless power and wirelessly powered products coming to market. Ossia and ARCHOS are taking pre-orders with special show pricing for the Cota-enabled security camera bundles.
- Wireless Power Easily Reaches Your Most Difficult-to-Get-to Devices
Cota® Real Wireless Power is designed to get to those hard-to-reach places where reliable power is critical. At the top of a tall tower. Deep inside sophisticated machinery. In a remote location. IoT and smart devices are everywhere, and they all need reliable power to stay connected and functional. Oftentimes, setting up, maintaining, and managing a system of dependable and sustainable power delivery can be complicated. Batteries and wiring are limiting in so many ways that you likely already know, from battery-life constraining features to not having enough trained people, time, or physical access to manage it all. Sometimes, it is easier and more cost effective to simply replace a device rather than go through the effort of replacing a sealed-in or inaccessible battery. What you may not know is that wireless power, by its very nature, eliminates those limitations. Take the simple example of a security camera located at the top of a 30 foot pole. Or the thousands of sensors in vehicles, ships, appliances, and factory equipment. When these devices are powered over air, wirelessly, without the need for batteries, then the limitations quickly disappear. What you’re left with is a system that runs itself automatically, without the need for intervention.
