The federal government has over 700 laboratories, and every day the scientists and engineers in them develop new technologies to meet the government’s immediate goals and needs.
Once those inventions are protected by patent law, they become available to qualified businesses for use in new products and services that go beyond the government’s needs or intent.
Today alone, the U.S. Navy received 14 U.S. patents on technologies ranging from long-range radio communications to renewable fuel.
