CHIPS Articles: NSA Offers Hot Technologies to the Commercial Marketplace

NSA Offers Hot Technologies to the Commercial Marketplace
By CHIPS Magazine - March 14, 2019
NSA’s Technology Transfer Program added new patents to the NSA patent portfolio with the goal of licensing these patents to innovators in industry and entrepreneurs. This year, in addition to the new patents, the program has assembled a list of hot technologies that are ready to license. The list debuted at the 2019 RSA Conference in San Francisco, California. These technologies are ready for a company, with innovative ideas to move them from pages in the portfolio to the commercial marketplace, the agency said in a release.

If you have the vision to boost your business these technologies are ripe for an entrepreneurial spirit with a creative approach:

Tracking Activity of Removable Electronic Components – Detects any type of removable media (SIM card, memory card, flash drive, hard drive, USB, etc.) attached to or detached from an electronic device.

Wide Field of View Concentrator – When coupled with a Fresnel lens, this technology improves signal focus over a long distance and enhances high-speed data transmission accuracy.

Reversible Computation Gate in Superconducting Circuits – Replaces standard logic components for digital logic ones that dramatically improve the energy efficiency of high speed computing.

Method of Fabricating a Flexible Organic Integrated Circuit – The method of making flexible organic integrated circuits that can be used for wearable electronics, large area displays, identification tags, and electronic paper.

Validating a Private-Public Key Pair – Provides a new level of security for key-pair validation to further secure modernized digital communications.

Licensing an NSA patented technology can be broken down into eight steps resulting in a Patent License Agreement, giving the business an opportunity to collaborate with NSA, expand their capabilities, and build their market share, NSA said.
