New York, Jan. 21, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ( -- ICAP Patent Brokerage announces for sale a patent portfolio disclosing improved techniques and devices for structural monitoring from inventors Duhane Lam and Mark Ellens. This IP package is available via sealed bid with a bidding deadline of March 27, 2014. Bids for this lot will be accepted starting March 25 through March 27.

"We are pleased to offer this exciting, and innovative patent portfolio providing a significantly lower cost method for structural monitoring. This portfolio is important for companies involved in structural monitoring, civil engineering, building health monitoring or testing, says Dean Becker, CEO of ICAP Patent Brokerage.

Key Characteristics & Benefits

This portfolio discloses techniques and devices for structural monitoring and non-destructive testing for structures such as buildings, bridges, and airplanes. Structures such as these can be prone to failures resulting in significant loss of life and property. The technology disclosed forms a simple, reliable, and easy to use solution to help detect when structures have experienced overload conditions. These conditions are often very difficult or impossible to detect with the naked eye or even by sophisticated measuring techniques.

This simple structural monitoring gauge can be mass manufactured, and coated with an easy-to-apply coating that shows when a part is under stress or strain. This gauge can then be attached to key components and parts in a structure such as a bridge, building, or aircraft to sense when the structure experiences an overload, or deformation. The structural monitoring gauges disclosed can quickly inform an inspector or an automated inspection system when an overload has occurred resulting in more accurate and efficient inspections.

The assets in the portfolio have been cited by industry leaders such as EADS, Hk Applied Science & Tech, Kla-Tencor Technologies, and Rockwell Automation.
