License Grant
The Company currently licenses its Mini(R) and Maxi(TM) automotive fuse technology to the Company's largest domestic competitor. The license granted in 1987 is nonexclusive and grants the Company the right to receive royalties.
License Property
Mini(R) Fuse, smaller than its predecessor Autofuse(R), is offered in a range from two amps to 30 amps and is designed to permit more fuses in the same amount of space than prior products.

Maxi(TM) Fuse, a larger version of the Autofuse(R), replaces the commonly used low technology fusible wire or fusible links in automobile electrical harnesses and is offered in a range from 20 amps to 80 amps.

Field of Use
The rights granted apply to the automotive industry.

IPSCIO Record ID: 4592

License Grant
The Licensor granted on a sole and exclusive basis the right to engage in development, prototyping and testing in phase 1.  Following completion of phase 1, Licensee can elect to proceed to phase 2 to continue developing the technology with the intent to commercialize automotive applications.
License Property
The alliance with Licensee is to develop prototypes for applications in production automobiles. The Licensor is commercializing their proprietary patented gearing technology. The Gearing System utilizes a proprietary, newly designed, patented tooth shape which enables gears to be smaller, lighter, stronger and more energy efficient than conventional planetary gears. It allows what is possibly the highest single stage reduction ratio, zero backlash gear currently available on the market. In high-ratio applications, the Gearing System can replace multiple stage gearing systems with a single stage reduction ratio, and is thus more cost effective to manufacture.

IPSCIO Record ID: 5303

License Grant
The Licensor grants to the Licensee the exclusive, unlimited, irrevocable, worldwide right and license, with the right to grant sublicenses to third parties, subject only to the provisions of the Agreement, under Patents and under Information to manufacture, have manufactured, use, market, have marketed, sell and have sold only marine and aeronautical products based on, incorporating or relating to the Inventions (hereinafter Products), and sold only in the marine and aeronautical industries, and the right, in connection therewith, to use the Torvec trademark and other trademarks now or hereafter used by the Licensor in association with the constant-velocity joint and related products and components.
License Property
The Licensor represents that it is the exclusive owner of (a) inventions relating to steer-drives, infinitely variable transmissions, hydraulic pump/motors, and a new form of constant-velocity universal joint using Vernon Gleasman's remarkable spherical gearing (hereinafter Inventions), and (b) calculations, specifications, engineering and part drawings, CAD/CAM tapes, and other information relating to the design and manufacture of products incorporating various forms of apparatus according to the Inventions (hereinafter Information).

The Company's constant velocity joint is designed to be interchangeable in over 40 existing car models.  It is notably lighter, less costly to manufacture, and potentially more durable than the constant velocity joints presently being used in all front-wheel drive vehicles.

Patents protect important inventions in five different areas of automotive technology steering drive for tracked vehicles; infinitely-variable transmission; hydraulic pump and motor; constant velocity joint and spherical gearing.
