There are an overview of recent fractal antenna arrays researches have been presented. The fine classification of various approaches have been made. The articles devoted to antenna arrays with fractal elements, such as electrically small and multifrequency antenna element have covered in details. The articles devoted to antenna arrays with fractal elements arrangement are covered also. Those arrays usually possess wide band and multifrequency property. The algorithms of their constructions has been condered, as well as the main results presented in the mentioned articles. At last, the articles devoted to antenna arrays with fractal radiation pattern are also covered.
