Go Navy – an armada of innovation

Another interesting detail from the Intellectual Property Owners Association list of the top 300 patent recipients in 2010 was the number patents issued to various United States government agencies and organizations. Here’s a quick rundown of those that made the list and the number of patents they received in 2010:

  • United States Navy  – 302
  • United States Army – 146
  • Department of Health and Human Services – 135
  • National Aeronautics and Space Administration – 101

Personally, I am quite surprised that neither the Department of Energy and United States Air Force made the list in 2010. Congratulations to the United States Navy for setting an excellent example and for being a source of cutting-edge innovation. In 2010, the United States Navy more than doubled the patents of its nearest competitor. Go Navy!
