Notice of Intent to Grant Partially Exclusive License


This notice is issued in accordance with 35 U.S.C. 209(e) and 37 CFR 404.7(a)(1)(i). NASA hereby gives notice of its intent to grant a partially exclusive license in the United States to practice the inventions described and claimed in MFS-32809-1 Adaptable Transponder for Multiple Telemetry Systems, U.S. Application Serial No. 13/369,704 and MFS-32841-1 System for Configuring Modular Telemetry Transponders, U.S. Application Serial No. 13/424,754, to Weddendorf Design, Inc. (DBA Orbital Telemetry), having its principal place of business in Huntsville, AL. The fields of use may be limited to suborbital and orbital aviation and aerospace applications. The patent rights in these inventions as applicable 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.


The prospective exclusive [or partially exclusive if applicable] 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 Mr. James J. McGroary, Chief Patent Counsel/LS01, Marshall Space Flight Center, Huntsville, AL 35812, (256) 544-0013.
