"Dr. Cohen has been essential in ensuring that all of our R&D efforts are focused on supporting our program and product efforts," said Glenn Beach.

NEW YORK, NY (PRWEB) September 17, 2015 -- ICAP Patent Brokerage announces the first in a series of
inventor-driven intellectual property auctions, featuring the work of Dr. Charles Jacobus / Cybernet Systems
Corporation. The auction will showcase 11 diverse patent portfolios, with a bidding deadline of December 10th, 2015.

“Dr. Jacobus and Cybernet embody the spirit of invention and entrepreneurship. The portfolios for sale in this
auction are extremely valuable, early priority assets, representing essential technologies within their respective fields,” said Dean Becker, CEO of ICAP Patent Brokerage.

The auction will feature 89 assets distributed across 11 highly relevant portfolios in the fields of cybersecurity,
distributed networking, gesture recognition, medical data and instrumentation, personal health monitoring, nondestructive testing, parachutes, robotics, and driverless vehicles – the results of decades of work by Dr. Jacobus and the entire Cybernet team.

Charles J. Jacobus, Ph.D., has performed and directed research and development in sensors, computer systems, robotics, medical devices and artificial intelligence for more than 30 years. He holds a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from the University of Illinois, Urbana. He previously headed the NASA Center for Commercial Development of Autonomous and Man-Controlled Robotic and Sensing Systems in Space (CAMRSS).

Dr. Jacobus co-founded Cybernet Systems Corporation in 1988, where he has played a key role in Cybernet's
growth from a two-person R&D company to a mixed commercial product and R&D company with
approximately 50 employees today. Their collective efforts have resulted in bringing multiple next-generation
technologies to market.

Many of the technologies offered for sale in the auction can be found in contemporary products, and many will
play a role in the next wave of Internet of Things, Big Data/Medical Data, and intuitive interfaces. These issued
and fundamental assets have been cited thousands of times collectively in patent applications by Microsoft,
Google, Sony, Apple, Abbott Labs, Boston Scientific, Robert Bosch, Sanofi, Qualcomm, and dozens of other
