The spirit of American ingenuity has deep roots with Honeywell employees at the Kansas City National Security Campus. Since its start in 1949, more than 100 patents have been granted on federally-funded technology. Over the last 10 years Honeywell employees working at the KC NSC have averaged 5 patents a year.
2015 was another banner year for innovation with 71 invention disclosures filed, 17 patent applications filed and 5 patents issued by the U.S. PTO office. Congratulations to the following Honeywell employees who received a patent:
Dan Bowen for Compositions Containing Borane or Carborane Cage Compounds and Related Applications

Honeywell has a talented and diverse workforce that brings together the best in tenured technical expertise with new perspectives of the next generation of leaders working on behalf of the Department of Energy.
When patents are licensed to commercial companies, the licensing revenue supports future federal technology maturation. U.S. businesses receive a mutual benefit as well. By sharing federally funded, patented technology with the marketplace, U.S. businesses are more competitive in today’s global economy.
