Announcement of the intention to grant an exclusive license

AGENCY: National Aerospace Authority.

ACTION: Letter of intent to grant a partially exclusive patent license.

SUMMARY: NASA hereby announces its intention to grant a partial exclusive license in the United States to practice the inventions described and claimed in the US patents and patent applications listed in the supplementary information below .

DATA: The prospective partially exclusive license may be granted unless NASA receives written objections, including evidence and arguments, by April 26, 2021 at the latest, showing that the license does not meet the requirements for licensing federal inventions complies with the Bayh-Dole Act and the implementing regulations. Competing applications submitted and received by NASA by April 26, 2021 at the latest, will also be treated as objections to the grant of the planned partially exclusive license. Objections submitted in response to this notice will not be made available to the public for inspection and, to the extent permitted by law, will not be released under the Freedom of Information Act.

ADDRESSES: Objections to the prospective license can be made to the Patent Counsel, Office of the General Counsel, NASA Langley Research Center. Phone (757) 864-3221. Email: [email protected]

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: NASA intends to grant a partially exclusive patent license in the United States to practice the inventions described and claimed in the following US patents and US patent applications:
