Notice of Intent to Grant Exclusive License


This notice is issued in accordance with 35 U.S.C. 209(c)(1) and 37 CFR 404.7(a)(1)(i). NASA hereby gives notice of its intent to grant an exclusive license worldwide to practice the inventions described and claimed in U.S. Patent No. 6,046,398, entitled “Micromachined Thermoelectric Sensors and Arrays and Process for Producing” to Ithaco Space Systems, a wholly owned subsidiary of Goodrich Corporation, having its principal place of business in Ithaca, New York. The fields of use may be limited to sensor applications for FTIR spectroscopy, aerospace, automotive, industrial process control, medical, and pharmaceutical fields. The patent rights in these inventions have been assigned to the United States of America as represented by the Administrator of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. The prospective exclusive license will comply with the terms and conditions of 35 U.S.C. 209 and 37 CFR 404.7.


The prospective exclusive license may be granted unless, within fifteen (15) days from the date of this published notice, NASA receives written objections including evidence and argument that establish that the grant of the license would not be consistent with the requirements of 35 U.S.C. 209 and 37 CFR 404.7. Competing applications completed and received by NASA within fifteen (15) days of the date of this published notice will also be treated as objections to the grant of the contemplated 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, 5 U.S.C. 552.


Objections relating to the prospective license may be submitted to Patent Counsel, Office of Chief Counsel, Mail Code 180-200, NASA Management Office, 4800 Oak Grove Drive, Pasadena, CA 91109, (818) 354-7770; (818) 393-3160 [Facsimile].
