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 an exclusive license to practice the inventions described and claimed in NASA Case Number(s) LAR-16079-1 entitled “Liquid Crystalline Thermosets From Oligo-Esters, Ester-Imides And Ester-Amides,” U.S. Patent Number 6,939,940; LAR-17157-1 entitled “Liquid Crystalline Thermosets From Ester, Ester-Imide, And Ester-Amide Oligomers” U.S. Patent Number 7,507,784; and LAR-17402-1 entitled “Wholly Aromatic Liquid Crystalline Polyetherimide (LC-PEI) Resins,” U.S. Patent Number 7,964,698, to Allotropica Technologies, Incorporated having its principal place of business in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. 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 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.
