'LICENSED PRODUCT' pertains to the design of its seismic hydrophone product.

Field of Use
Hydrophones are underwater sensors designed to produce an output signal in response to an acoustic pressure signal. They can be thought of as underwater microphones. The Licensee's hydrophone products are typically used in the offshore oil and gas exploration industry, where they listen to acoustic sound waves generated by the reflections of an acoustic signal as it bounces off of the various geological layers beneath the ocean floor. These data are used to generate information about the geological structure beneath the ocean as a means of locating promising oil and gas exploration sites. The Licensee's hydrophone product line is also used in military applications to listen for and detect submarines and other vessels under and on the surface of the ocean. Hydrophones may also be sold to research institutions for various applications such as listening to marine animals.

Intellectual Property
Patent numbers for gas, fire and earthquake detection
Patent Canadian – 2170561
US – 08-811059
European – 97913052.3

Canadian patent for excess gas flow, earthquake, gas and smoke detection and shut off valve – 2308938.

Gas – There are four gas product models available. Here is a brief description of one of them
The 2000 Series Gas and Carbon Monoxide detector sends out a wireless RF signal to the valve if an alarm occurs. This signal format for the wireless valve is standardized with the Gas Guardianâ„¢ Gas Leak Protection System, which means that any sensor that works with the Gas Guardianâ„¢ Gas Leak Protection System is fully compatible with this wireless valve and can be easily added to the system.  The wireless valve is powered by an internal battery which will last more than 5-years under normal operating conditions.

Seismic –  There are three seismic products available. Here is brief description of one of them
QMI reduces the concern with the RF Quakeâ„¢ wireless system, designed to shut-off your gas in the event of an earthquake. Linked to a wireless gas valve, your gas system is automatically turned off when a dangerous earthquake is detected.

The RF Quakeâ„¢ system is a very low powered device, powered by a 9-volt wall adapter with internal battery backup, which insures that the RF Quakeâ„¢ will remain on guard of you even if the power goes off.  When a dangerous earthquake is detected, the RF Quakeâ„¢ sends a wireless RF signal to the valve, causing it to shutoff, preventing potential fires or explosions that could result from burst or damaged gas lines in the building.  This signal format for the wireless valve is standardized with the Gas Guardianâ„¢ Gas Leak Protection System, which means that any sensor that works with the Gas Guardianâ„¢ Gas Leak Protection System is fully compatible with this wireless valve and can be easily added to the system.  The wireless valve is powered by an internal battery which will last more than 5-years under normal operating conditions.

Field of Use
Field-Of-Use The vertical transportation industry, including, without limitation, elevators, escalators, moving walks, dumbwaiters and residential elevators.
