The MIT Technology Licenses Office welcomes companies to get to know us personally. We find it most effective to work individually with a company to identify specific areas of interest. We then bring inventions, which specifically match the company's interests to the attention of the company. With 500 new invention disclosures coming into our office each year, our portfolio is constantly changing. We therefore encourage companies to keep in touch on a regular basis and also to contact us when a particular technology need arises.
Early Stage Technology
Our technology is usually early stage and often requires substantial development by the licensing company before a commercial product is ready for market. Because of this, we often find that the best contact person from the company is one who is knowledgeable about the company's science and technology and also familiar with the long-term strategic plans of the company.
14532 – CoSpa/CIWS relies on storm tracking for the deterministic forecast. Storm tracking generates motion vectors, which are used to advect the weather for forecasts. The current tracking technology is based on cross-correlation, an image processing technique which attempts to determine where pixels have moved to from one image to the next. There are several problems with this method: it does not... Read More
14531 – Algorithms to recognize animals and plants from their photographs hold great promise for the study of migratory behavior and for the development of conservation plans. However, a vast number of animals and plants deform in highly nonlinear ways, which makes recognizing them difficult. We present a new approach to deformation invariant image matching. Our matcher (a) aligns templates to... Read More
13587 – The TDWR Upgrade has both a hardware and software component, but it is the software component that is the subject of this license opportunity. (The hardware component essentially involves a replacement of legacy TDWR hardware with modern COTS parts that provide increased system performance. The TDWR Upgrade software components provide conversion from TDWR radar data at an early stage of... Read More
13503 – IFERRET/QAINT is a system for tracing the flow of information (also known as "taint") within a program or virtual machine. It can be used to understand how inputs affect a program by labeling them and watching what they influence and control. This has applications to program testing, malware analysis, and reverse engineering, as well as intrusion and exfiltration prevention.
13224 – JSemcor was designed to be an easy-to-use, easy-to-extend Java library for interfacting with the Semcor electronic concordance. It features API calls to retrieve context object, paragraphs, sentences, and tokens from the Semcor data files. It also has classes that allow the user to interface to the taglist index files (if available) and the 'detokenization' of the texts back into... Read More
12430 – Star trackers are designed to be highly sophisticated attitude sensors that precisely determine position during tumble operations. There are numerous types of attitude sensors, but star trackers offer the greatest robustness compared to other currently available sensors. MIT’s Space System’s Laboratory (SSL) and AeroAstro, Inc. are developing two star trackers, LIST (Lightweight... Read More
12443 – Organism Checker can determine the species origin of a novel DNA sequence by comparing the relative frequencies of kmers within the novel DNA to a database of known kmer frequencies for various organisms. The comparison algorithm is novel and effective. Contact the technology manager for more information.
MITSIMLab : A Simulation-based Lab for Evaluating Impacts of Alternative Traffic Management System Designs
7980 – MITSIMLab is a simulation-based laboratory that was developed for evaluating the impacts ofalternative traffic management system designs at the operational level and assisting insubsequent refinement. Examples of systems that can be evaluated with MITSIMLab include advanced traffic management systems (ATMS) and route guidance systems. MITSIMLab was developed at MIT’s Intelligent... Read More
15054 – "FFTW" stands for "Fastest Fourier Transform in the West." FFTW is a C subroutine library for computing the discrete Fourier transform (DFT) in one or more dimensions, of arbitrary input size, and of both real and complex data, as well as of even/odd data, i.e. the discrete cosine/sine transforms, or DCT/DST. FFTW’s speed is superior when compared to other publicly-available DFT programs... Read More

GAMIT - part of a software suite for analyzing GPS measurements primarily to study crustal deformation
4116 – GAMIT, GLOBK, and TRACK form a comprehensive suite of programs for analyzing GPS measurements primarily to study crustal deformation. The software has been developed by MIT, Scripps Institution of Oceanography, and Harvard University with support from the National Science Foundation. GAMIT is collection of programs to process phase data to estimate three-dimensional relative positions of... Read More
