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.

IPSCIO Record ID: 29153

License Grant
The Licensor granted to the Licensee the unlimited, irrevocable, exclusive worldwide right and License under Patents (5,878,492; 5,613,914) and Information to incorporate the Invention in its Multifuel Engine and to manufacture, have manufactured, subLicense, use or sell its Multifuel Engine with the Invention as an integral part thereof to the Licensee.

As additional consideration for the grant of the License granted herein, Licensee shall provide such consulting services to and/or on behalf of Licensor as Licensor shall request from time to time. This Agreement and the rights and Licenses granted hereunder shall continue in perpetuity, but Licensee’s obligations to pay royalties to Licensor shall terminate on the earlier of the expiration of the last Patent. The Licensee was granted an exclusive, worldwide license to incorporate the Constant Velocity Joint technology(our Sphere-Gear CV Joint) in HDP's family of highly powered, multifueled, fuel efficient, light weight, cost effective internal combustion piston engines.

IPSCIO Record ID: 27130

License Grant
The Licensors hereby grant to the Canadian Licensee the exclusive right and license to a) manufacture the Product, subject to the OEM manufacturing provisions set forth herein.

The company has been assigned the right, title, interest and obligations in a License Agreement dated January 16, 1992 to manufacture, market and distribute a microwave radar collision avoidance device for motor vehicles from an undisclosed Licensor.

License Property
The Guardian Alert Backup System that was acquired through the License Agreement is a back-up obstacle detection/collision warning system.  This system is capable of warning a driver in the event that there is an obstacle in a predefined zone directly behind a rearwardly moving vehicle that could present an accident threatening circumstance.  Drivers of motor vehicles have always had a certain degree of difficulty backing up due to their inability to see all obstacles while operating their vehicles in reverse.

The Guardian Alert Backup System is comprised of a transceiver, an antenna, an intermediate frequency amplifier, and an audio-visual alarm.  The components are mounted in an environmentally sealed, high impact, plastic housing.  The unit is adapted for mounting at the rearward end of the vehicle in order to direct its wave output rearwardly.  The internal working components of the Guardian Alert Backup System are smaller than a pack of cigarettes.  The proposed unit does not materially alter the exterior design of the vehicle.  The circuit of the device is adapted for electrical connection to the back-up light circuit of a vehicle for activation only when the vehicle transmission is engaged in reverse gear.

Field of Use
The rights granted apply for motor vehicles.

IPSCIO Record ID: 27793

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.
