NASA hereby gives notice of its intent to grant a worldwide partially exclusive license to practice the inventions described and claimed in NASA Case Numbers LAR-16571-2 entitled “Magnetic Field Response Sensor for Conductive Media,” U.S. Patent Application Number 11/421,886; LAR-16571-3 entitled “Magnetic Field Response Sensor for Conductive Media,” U.S. Patent Application Number 12/533,520; LAR-16974-1 entitled “Flexible Framework for Capacitive Sensing,” U.S. Patent Number 7,047,807 B2; LAR-17116-1 entitled “System and Method for Wirelessly Determining Fluid Volume,” U.S. Patent Number 7,506,541 B2; LAR-17155-1 entitled “Wireless Fluid Level Measuring System,” U.S. Patent Number 7,255,004 B2; LAR-17294-1 entitled “Wireless Sensing System Using Open-Circuit, Electrically-Conductive Spiral-Trace Sensor,” U.S. Patent Application Number 11/671,089; LAR-17480-1 entitled “Method of Calibrating a Fluid-Level Measurement System,” U.S. Patent Application Number 11/930,222; LAR-17480-1-PCT entitled “Method of Calibrating a Fluid-Level Measurement System,” PCT Patent Application Number PCT/US08/58332; LAR-17488-1 entitled “Wireless Sensing System for Non-Invasive Monitoring of Attributes of Contents in a Container,” U.S. Patent Application Number 12/015,626; and LAR-17488-1-PCT entitled “Wireless Sensing System for Non-Invasive Monitoring of Attributes of Contents in a Container,” PCT Patent Application Number PCT/US08/51258 to Kelvin International Corporation having its principal place of business in Newport News, Virginia. The field of use may be limited to cryogenic liquid product applications including flow, level, and fluid measurement applications. The patent rights have been assigned to the United States of America as represented by the Administrator of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. The prospective partially exclusive license will comply with the terms and conditions of 35 U.S.C. 209 and 37 CFR 404.7.
