License Grant
The Company executed a cross licensing agreement with a UK based company. This cross license agreement is expanded by the parties to increase the fields of use to include aftermarket ground-based vehicles and aircraft sound systems and increased the royalties.
License Property
The Company patented flat panel transducer ('FPT') technology utilizes piezo electric drivers mounted on flat rigid surfaces to create a unique wide dispersion sound field. Unlike conventional speakers that deliver sound through air in a pistonic fashion, the FPT design delivers sound throughout the surface of the panel being driven. This distributed mode method of delivering wide dispersion sound is what NCT has termed Sweet Space(TM), which floods a room with sound. Uses for FPT technology include home theatre, professional, automotive and aircraft applications.
Field of Use
The Company specializes in the utilization of sound and signal waves to electronically reduce or eliminate noise, improve signal-to-noise ratio and enhance sound quality. The Company develops its technologies to reduce or eliminate noise and enhance sound quality in a wide array of products. The Company designs some of its products so that other firms can integrate them with their own inventions and technologies to serve major markets in the transportation, manufacturing, commercial, consumer products and communications industries.

License Grant
Parties entered into an Assignment of Technology providing for an Assignment of certain technologies from Licensor, a director of the Company, to the Company.
License Property
Specifically, Technology (referred as the Tracker) has been modified and enhanced with GPS (Global Positioning System) technology and includes two pending patent applications. The Sonic Generator has been the subject of further invention and development and has been modified and enhanced (Acoustical Heterodyne or HyperSonic Sound), including three patent applications.

HyperSonic Sound is a new method of sound reproduction sound is generated in the air using ultrasonic frequencies, those above the normal range of hearing.  A patent-pending process creates an ultrasonic wave that interacts in mid-air to produce wide spectrum audio.  Since traditional loudspeaker system elements such as voice coils, magnets, cones/diaphragms, crossover networks, baffles and speaker enclosures are eliminated, management believes HSS technology offers higher quality sound with less distortion while using less power, space, and weight and at a lower cost.

The Company innovated a proprietary method of tracking persons and objects utilizing Global Positioning System ('GPS') technology.  The Company has designed a portable device as a simple solution to (1) finding another person or object or (2) finding a known location. It employs GPS technology but doesn't require complicated longitude/latitude readouts, mapping software or recording and storing of previous locations and movements as used in most portable GPS devices. The Company has produced a proof-of-concept demonstration system.

Field of Use
The Licensee develops and delivers innovative directed acoustic products that beam, focus and control sound over short and long distances.
