NASA hereby gives notice of its intent to grant a partially exclusive patent license in the United States to practice the invention(s) described and claimed in U.S. Patent Application No. 15/ 014,608 entitled ``Nuclear Thermionic Avalanche Cells with Thermoelectric (NTAC-TE) Generator in Tandem Mode,'' NASA Case Number LAR-17981-1; U.S. Patent Application No. 15/995,467 entitled ``Portable Compact Thermionic Power Cell,'' NASA Case Number LAR-18860-1; U.S. Patent Application No. 15/479,679 entitled ``Metallic Junction Thermoelectric Generator,'' NASA Case Number LAR-18866-1; U.S. Patent Application No. 62/621,930 titled ``Selective and Direct Deposition Technique for Streamlined CMOS Processing,'' NASA Case Number LAR- 18925-P2; U.S. Patent Application No. 62/643,292 entitled ``Portable Miniaturized Thermionic Power Cell with Multiple Regenerative Layers,'' NASA Case No. LAR-18926-P; U.S. Patent Application No. 62/643,303 entitled ``High Performance Electric Generators Boosted by Nuclear Electron Avalanche (NEA),'' NASA Case No. LAR-19112-P; U.S. Patent Application No. 62/642,198 entitled ``Co-60 Breeding Reactor Tandem with Thermionic Avalanche Cell,'' NASA Case No. LAR-18762-P; U.S. Patent Application No. 62/678,006 entitled ``Multi-Layered Radio- Isotope for Enhanced Photoelectron Avalanche Process,'' NASA Case No. LAR-19420-P to BlackRock Energy Corporation, having its principal place of business in Williamsburg, VA. The fields of use may be limited to mobile and/or transportable, as opposed to stationary (where stationary means permanently fixed and not capable of being moved), power/energy sources for United States Department of Defense (specifically the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard, as well as any future created Space Corps) applications, including but not limited to powering mobile and/or transportable high energy weaponry, including the weaponry's mode of transport (including but not limited to tanks, surface vessels, trucks, aircraft, Unmanned Underwater Vehicles (UUVs), Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs), and drones), high energy weapon platforms, and portable power stations for use at Forward Operating Bases (where Forward Operating Bases means airfields used to support tactical operations without establishing full support facilities). The licensed exclusive fields of use may exclude all other fields, including but not limited to any outer space applications intended for use beyond 400,000 feet above Earth's mean sea level. NASA has not yet made a determination to grant the requested license and may deny the requested license even if no objections are submitted within the comment period.
