• Strategic patent searching and analysis (infringement, competitive intelligence, etc.)
• Creation of intellectual property
• IP portfolio development for licensing or sale
Ronald DeMartino's Problem Solving Experience:
I was, in part, responsible for the development and commercialization of a polyester textile fiber that matched the comfort qualities of cotton.
I managed a cross functional group of 14 professionals that developed a burn stable automobile airbag, based on PET, that offered a lower cost alternative to the automaker
I managed a team of 8 scientists and supporting staff that developed aromatic liquid crystal polyesters with superior barrier and mechanical properties for use in automobile multi-layer fuel tanks.
I created, staffed and directed a synthesis group of 16 scientists responsible for the development of new nonlinear optical polymers. Novel polymers were prepared which allowed the fabrication of unique devices while also securing broad patent coverage for this family of materials. These new polymers represented the first amorphous side chain polymers that were able to be oriented to produce a nonlinear optical effect.
