NASA Patent Offices Need to Coordinate Much Better Than They Do

NASA LaRC Notice of Intent To Grant an Exclusive License: Allotropica Technologies

... Information about other NASA inventions available for licensing can be found online at http://techtracs.nasa.gov/.

NASA KSC Notice of Intent To Grant Exclusive Copyright License: Diversified Industries, C&IS Inc.

... Information about other NASA inventions available for licensing can be found online at http://technology.nasa.gov/.

Keith's note: These two official NASA notices regarding a "Notice of Intent To Grant an Exclusive License" were both published in today's Federal Register. Curiously, the notice from KSC says: "Information about other NASA inventions available for licensing can be found online at http://technology.nasa.gov/". Yet the LaRC notice says: "Information about other NASA inventions available for licensing can be found online at http://techtracs.nasa.gov/". NASA's patent people - in two different locations - have their notices issued simultaneously (they are on the same page) - yet they tell people to go to two different websites for the same official information - and in the case of the link used by LaRC - there is no website operating at http://techtracs.nasa.gov/.

One more example of how NASA's technology folks simply do not coordinate with one another or pay attention to what they tell the public.
