NASA/GSFC has a requirement for Patent Analysis Software.

NASA/GSFC intends to purchase this item from Innography, Inc. only. The software by Innography is the only patent analysis software as a service vendor that correlates patent data with company and litigation information to calculate relative patent strength in a specific technology area to support decisions on selecting and ranking patents for licensing or selling to generate income. Innography is the only patent analysis software as a service vendor that supports a non-keywork search method for generating a target licensee landscape for a specific technology area that can then be used to identify and prioritize specific licensing targets for patents in the NASA portfolio that have been identified as licensable patents. This company also qualifies as a small business.

Authority is 10 U.S.C. 2304(c)(1) Only one responsible source.
