IPSCIO Record ID: 5661

License Grant
The Company granted subsidiary an exclusive license to advertise, market and sell all manufacturing and marketing rights to the Company’s products and technologies in all commercial markets within the United States.
License Property
We are engaged in research and development of metal fatigue detection, measurement, and monitoring technologies.  The first is a small, extremely simple device that continuously integrates the effect of fatigue loading in a structural member, called a Fatigue Fuse.

The second is an instrument that detects very small cracks in metals, The Electrochemical Fatigue Sensor.  Another product currently under development is the Company’s Videoscope, which provides visual access and simultaneously, certain non-destructive test sensors to remote locations.  It comprises a video detecting element and light source together with a working channel, through which certain non-destructive test sensors such as ultrasound and/or eddy current devices can be passed, to inspect visually or manually inaccessible regions of structures such as the interior of jet turbine engines.

IPSCIO Record ID: 26504

License Grant
The Company has entered into a license agreement with the University regarding the development and marketing of the EFS.
License Property
The EFS is designed to measure electrochemically the state of fatigue damage in a metal fatigue member.

The Electrochemical Fatigue Sensor has demonstrated in the laboratory that it can detect cracks as small as 10 microns (0.0004 inches), which is smaller than any other practical technology.  The EFS functions by treating the location of interest (the target) associated with the structural member as an electrode of an electrochemical cell.  By imposing a constant voltage-equivalent circuit as the control mechanism for the electrochemical reaction at the target surface, current flows as a function of stress action.  The EFS is always a dynamic process; therefore stress action is required, e.g. to measure a bridge structural member it is necessary that cyclic loads be imposed, as normal traffic on the bridge would do.  The results are a specific set of current waveforms and amplitudes that characterize and indicate fatigue damage i.e., fatigue cracks.

Field of Use
The Company is in the final stage of developing the EFS.  The EFS is a device that employs the principle of electrochemical/mechanical interaction to find cracks.  It is an instrument that detects very small cracks and has the potential to determine crack growth rates.
