The DoN intends to move expeditiously to license these inventions. Licensing application packages are available from TechLink and all applications and commercialization plans must be returned to TechLink by September 15, 2013. TechLink will turn over all completed applications to the DoN for evaluation by October 1, 2013, with final negotiations and awards occurring during the months of October and November, 2013.

The DoN will consider requests for nonexclusive and partially exclusive licenses in the U.S., and may prefer to grant an exclusive license outside of the U.S. to a company both capable of broad commercialization and the ability to prosecute and maintain national stage filings in most territories outside of the U.S. The DoN intends that licensees interested in a license in territories outside of the U.S. will assume foreign prosecution and pay the cost of such prosecution.

The DoN, in its decisions concerning the granting of licenses, will give special consideration to existing licensee's, small business firms, and consortia involving small business firms. The DoN intends to ensure that its licensed inventions are broadly commercialized throughout the United States.
