Intellectual Property

IOS' scientists are dedicated to discovering novel approaches to the technological challenges in their areas of expertise. When these efforts result in breakthroughs, IOS seeks patent protection through the United States Patent and Trademark Office. Our portfolio of issued patents represents a valuable asset. IOS can license the use of our patents and thus generate a royalty revenue stream to fund further development of our technologies. Patent rights can also be transferred into joint ventures and spinoffs, serving as the starting point for these entities.
