Scientists and engineers at SSC Pacific are committed to creating innovations in support of the warfighter. That process includes protecting the Navy's intellectual property and ensuring capability is delivered at the lowest possible cost. According to the Institute of Electrical & Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Power Patent Scorecard 2010, US Navy patent portfolio ranks #1 among government agencies worldwide. In fiscal year 2010, SSC Pacific was issued over 40 patents by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). When patents are licensed for commercialization -- a process that allows for large-scale production of a capability needed by the warfighter -- the SSC Pacific inventor gets to share in the royalties.
