U.S. Office of Naval Research Sets New IP Management Course with Anaqua’s AQX Solution
Anaqua, the leading provider of innovation and intellectual property management solutions, today announced that the Office of Naval Research (ONR) has selected Anaqua’s AQX platform for managing its global patent and trademark portfolio.
ONR is responsible for coordinating, executing and promoting science and technology programs for the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps. For over seventy years, ONR has invested in research that increases fundamental knowledge, fosters opportunities through breakthroughs, and provides technology options for future naval capabilities and systems. The organization’s diverse IP portfolio contains several thousand patents with notable inventions focusing on radar, communication, imaging, and navigational systems.
ONR has maintained operations of the intellectual property docketing system requirements for the Department of Navy (DON) Office of General Counsel (OGC) attorneys and support staff. DON’s requirements for IP docketing and agreement tracking have evolved over the years and with them, the need for an IP software solution with greater functionality. ONR selected Anaqua’s AQX platform to streamline its IP management processes for patent and trademark docketing and agreement tracking. With AQX, ONR can leverage modules and tools for collaboration and workflow, drafting and filing, and portfolio management and licensing. The organization will also leverage Anaqua’s Financial Management solution to support the IP team’s full spend lifecycle.
“The Office of Naval Research has been a pioneer in the public support of science and technology research that benefits both the naval services and the nation with accelerating technology maturation,” said Bob Romeo, CEO of Anaqua. “They have a legacy in innovation and our modern AQX platform will help IP portfolio managers at ONR ensure they maximize the effectiveness of their IP assets.”
