How ARL Technology Lead to a More Efficient Cell Phone

Paratek Microwave, established in March 1998, successfully licensed patents from the Army Research Laboratory with the goal to commercialize electronically tunable components and subsystems developed on the basis of the low loss, tunable family of dielectric materials. The outcome of this licensing effort was the formation of a family of patents developed by Paratek Microwave that led to the development of tunable components like filters, oscillators, delay lines, phase shifters, and electronically scanning and tunable antennas. The addressable markets were for US defense applications and the commercial broadband wireless including mobile phones. Paratek was acquired by Blackberry to incorporate Paratek's tunable technology into their mobile phones.

The technology is a mainstream solution to multiple frequency bands and antenna performance in today's smartphones.

The application of rate-activated tethers for helmet suspension systems is specifically addressed in US Patent Application 16/295,101 – “Rate-Activated Helmet Suspension” (ARL docket 18-07), which is an unpublished patent application and not currently in the public domain. The regulatory authority for CCDC ARL to grant licenses (37 CFR 404.4) requires that “federally owned inventions shall be made available for licensing as deemed appropriate in the public interest and each agency shall notify the public of these available inventions.” Because public notice has not been provided either through official announcement or publication of the patent application, and given the potential for this invention to positively impact the health and safety of the US warfighter as well as the general public, this notice shall serve as public notification that CCDC ARL is making the invention available for non-exclusive licensing in order to best serve the public interest.

  • “Rate Activated Helmet Suspension”, US Patent Publication 20200022443 A1, Publication Date: January 23, 2020, Filing Date: March 7, 2019.

In addition, CCDC ARL notifies that there are related issued patents that are also available for licensing, except for certain fields of use that have already been exclusively licensed. These issued patents include:

  • “Rate Responsive, Stretchable Devices”, US Patent No.: 9,303,717, Issue Date: April 5, 2016, Filing Date: June 26, 2013.
  • “Rate Responsive, Stretchable Devices Further Improvements”, US Patent No.: 9,958,023, Issue Date: May 1, 2018, Filing Date: March 1, 2016.
  • “Head Restraint System Having A Rate Sensitive Device”, US Patent No.: 10,178,888, Issue Date: January 15, 2019, Filing Date: December 1, 2016. Information regarding the patent application and the issued patents can be obtained from the point of contact listed below.
