Owlstone and SELEX Galileo Execute Exclusive Licensing Transaction

Montebello, NY | Posted on January 12th, 2010

Owlstone and SELEX Galileo have executed a licensing agreement by which SELEX Galileo will obtain the exclusive right to develop and distribute Owlstone's FAIMS chemical detection technology products within the military marketplace. Although the terms are confidential, the agreement is inclusive of an upfront exclusivity fee and development funding provided to Owlstone for the purposes of securing Owlstone's engineering and technology capability within the military sector. The initial agreement is for a period of 12 months.

This strategic transaction is the latest development in a three year SELEX Galileo funded collaboration to design and evolve its NexSense integrated detection platform to meet specifications set forth by military customers around the world. SELEX Galileo is a leader in surveillance, protection, tracking, targeting, navigation & control and imaging systems.

"This new initiative marks a significant evolution in our continuing relationship with SELEX Galileo," commented Owlstone's CEO, Bret Bader. "We are delighted to forge this stronger link between our two companies as part of our ongoing effort to deliver revolutionary technology to this critical market."

Alastair Morrison, Senior Vice President Radar and Advanced Targeting at SELEX Galileo, said, "We chose to work with Owlstone on the basis of their superior technical capabilities in micro-fabricated FAIMS systems. Securing exclusivity for the military sector represents a win for both organisations as it combines SELEX Galileo's established market position with Owlstone's proven innovation and engineering capability."
