Notice of intent to grant exclusive patent license.


NASA hereby gives notice of its intent to grant an exclusive patent license in the United States to practice the invention described and claimed in USPN 9,483,674, entitled “RFID Torque-Sensing Tag System for Fasteners”, MSC-25626-1, to Solon Manufacturing, Inc., having its principal place of business in Chardon, Ohio.

Competing applications completed and received by NASA no later than April 18, 2018 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.


Objections relating to the prospective license may be submitted to Patent Counsel, Office of Chief Counsel, MS AL, NASA Johnson Space Center, 2101 NASA Parkway, Houston, TX 770585. Phone (281) 483-4871. Facsimile (281) 483-6936.
