U.S. Patent No. 9,219,978 adds value to GTX IP’s overall portfolio and significantly strengthens its position in a rapidly growing multi-billion dollar market
Los Angeles, California – (UPTICK Newswire – March 2, 2016) – GTX Corp (OTCQB: GTXO), a pioneer and global provider of portable personal tracking technologies, has been granted another US patent related to its location-based monitoring platform and communication protocols. The recently issued U.S. Patent No. 9,219,978 is a significant addition to the existing family of communications protocol patents and to GTX Corp’s overall patent portfolio. In addition, GTX recently filed another patent application in this family, thus preserving the right to file more patent applications in the future under the “286” banner with a priority date of February 2008.
“This is a treasure trove of valuable inventions and another potential change in our intellectual property portfolio,” commented Larry E. Henneman, Jr., GTX Corp’s patent advisor for over 10 years. “It is becoming increasingly clear that these patents are very important, especially with a priority filing date going back to early 2008, when many location-based technologies had not yet been fully developed, and certainly not with features relevant to current wearable technology. Additionally, the wallet has one pending application, which means that we can continue to file divisional and / or continuation patents claiming communication protocol functionality that was disclosed in our original filing.
“The value of these patents to GTX is that they extend far beyond our primary footwear applications and into areas such as GPS watches, portable fitness devices that track location, portable GPS devices. , tracking applications on smartphones and tracking devices and platforms in general, said Andrew Duncan GTX Corp, Director of Business Development. We are extremely pleased to have been granted another patent in our very valuable patent family. which are key inventions on the operation of almost all two-way GPS devices today.
GTX Corp’s three patents – US 8,154,401, US 8,760,286 and US 9,219,978, offer significant value, particularly because these patents are not limited to any particular form factor or industry and are applicable to any device. generic tracking device, which in its simplest form includes a communication device (i.e. cell phone modem, Bluetooth or Wi-Fi communicator), location finder (i.e. – say a GPS or a Wi-Fi module) and a data memory. This technology is now commonly integrated into millions of devices, deployed in many industries.
Patrick Bertagna, CEO of GTX Corp, concluded: “In 2008, when we were at the forefront of wearable technology, Apple had yet to launch the iPhone, no one had heard of Fitbit and GPS was mainly in cars, boats, airplanes and about to be introduced in our GPS Smart Shoes. Being at the forefront of this industry, we have created several protocols and filed patents on these inventions. Fast forward to 2016 and the world has changed – location based technologies are now ubiquitous! As a pioneer and forward-thinking in this industry and having had excellent legal advice along the way, we made the first investments in building a strong intellectual property portfolio that culminates today not only as as an obstacle to entry into our main activity, but also by increasing the overall GTX. enterprise value. “
The original patent specification that underlies the communication protocol patent family describes many other potentially patentable communication / configuration features. Due to the ongoing divisional application in this patent family, GTX is entitled to apply and is considering filing additional patents on several of these key features.
