UK govt seeks India patent for satellite navigation system
New Delhi, Nov 28, 2008 (Asia Pulse Data Source via COMTEX) --
The UK government is seeking a patent in India for a defence invention called 'modulation signals for a satellite navigation system', which can measure satellite signals.
The UK government has approached the Controller General of Patents, Designs and Trademarks by filing a patent application for the invention.
The patent application in India has been filed in the name of Secretary of State for Defence (Defence Minister of the UK).
The approving authorities have published the claims made by the UK government in their latest Patent Office Journal, giving a notice seeking public opinion on that.
The present invention is related to modulation signals, systems and methods.
The satellite navigation system of the Defence Ministry is broadly based on the technique used in the Global Positioning System (GPS), which operates by using a number of frequencies, according to the patent application.
A patent for the invention has already been approved by Geneva-based World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO), a UN agency dealing with intellectual properties.
