Participative Management Agreement
1. This Agreement is entered into between the United States Government acting through the Naval Undersea
Warfare Center, Division Newport (NUWCDIVNPT ) hereinafter called "NUWCDIVNPT" and/or "the
Government" and the Unmanned Surface Vehicle (USV) Consortium (referred to as the "Consortium"). The
Consortium is comprised of Northrop Grumman Corporation, a corporation organized and existing under the
laws of the State of Delaware (hereinafter called "Northrop Grumman"), Raytheon Company, a corporation
organized and existing under the laws of the State of Delaware, (hereinafter called "Raytheon") and, Integrated
Maritime Platforms (formerly TEAM ONE USA Inc.), a corporation organized and existing under the laws of the
State of Washington (hereinafter called "Integrated Maritime Platforms") herein individually referred to as the
"Consortium Members".

2. Collectively NUWCDIVNPT and the Unmanned Surface Vehicle Consortium will be referred to as the
"Team". The Team consists of the four aforementioned members as depicted in Figure 1. This Team will be
bound by this Other Transaction Agreement.

3. Hereinafter, both NUWCDIVNPT and the Consortium together will be referred to as the "Parties' and
individually as "the Party".

WHEREAS the members of the Team have complementary research and development interests, and

WHEREAS the Team wishes to apply its talents and experiences to bring to application and use by the United
States Department of Defense (D.o.D.) certain maritime Undersea Warfare Combat Vehicles (UWCVs) as
deployable, off-board, organic Undersea Warfare (USW) systems and to explore other related applications for
USVs, and

WHEREAS the UWCV applications are aimed at the United States Navy's requirements for organic Undersea
Warfare missions, and

WHEREAS the Agreement anticipates receiving funding from the United States Government D.o.D. to perform
additional development efforts in accordance with the Purpose of the Agreement,

NOW THEREFORE it is agreed that the Consortium does hereby enter into an Other Transaction Agreement
for research and development of Prototype UWCV's with NUWCDIVNPT (hereinafter called the Agreement)
as authorized under Section 845 of Public Law 103-160 (National Defense Authorization Act for fiscal year
1994, as amended).
ARTICLE I: SCOPE OF THE AGREEMENT

A. Purpose

1. The Purpose of this Agreement is to develop a military capability to conduct multiple undersea warfare
missions using USVs with varying levels of manning and autonomy through a multi-phase program named the
Spartan Undersea Warfare Combat Vehicle Program (hereinafter referred to as "the UWCV Program") 2. The
Program for application of UWCVs has these key aspects:

The first aspect is mission modularity: the USV platform shall be a reconfigurable maritime surface craft that can
execute individually selective or multiple naval warfare missions. Through past associations, the Consortium
Members and the Government have performed studies and analyses which show that existing surface craft are
capable of carrying and deploying sensor and weapon payloads that are currently in development or operational
on aircraft and undersea vehicles.

The second aspect is unmanned operations: the Consortium members have shown in past demonstrations and
products that existing manned surface craft can be easily made to operate as unmanned vehicles using non-
developmental technology already fielded for use on unmanned aerial vehicles, other unmanned surface vehicles,
and unmanned undersea vehicles. The USV thereby brings to the United States naval fleet, a capability to
perform missions without putting personnel in harm's way. In addition, the craft can be operated as a manned
vehicle for traditional missions such as troop transport.

The third aspect is organic deployability: the unmanned surface vehicle shall be launched and recovered from
naval fleet mother vessels. The USV shall have minimal impact on its mother naval surface combatant or
amphibious warfare host ship. The USV should, to the maximum extent possible, use existing infrastructure, i.e. it
should be stored and launched with equipment already resident on the host ship; it should be maintained by
personnel already assigned to the mother ship.

The fourth aspect is network centric warfare: the USV shall be utilized as a complementary node in network
centric warfare. The USV is one of several nodes (e.g. UUVs, UAVs, naval warfare ships, aircraft, and fixed
sites) that can be linked in a network to provide the battle force commander an extended tactical picture of the
environment. Therefore, in addition to carrying various sensors and weapons payloads, the USV carries a core
surveillance and communications suite capable of monitoring the tactical environment and communicating with
other nodes or command platforms.

The fifth aspect is the assembly of affordable demonstration USVs that will allow certain high priority naval
warfare missions to be demonstrated in a four year period within this UWCV Program. Specifically, the off-
board organic missions of anti-submarine warfare (ASW) and in-stride mine avoidance (ISMA) are high priority
mission demonstrations for this UWCV Program.
B. Specific Performance Requirements

1. The Consortium and NUWCDIVNPT shall be governed by the terms of this Agreement. Each member of the
Team shall be responsible for its own workshare under the UWCV Program and individual Phases which
collectively make up the UWCV Program. Figure 2 represents this UWCV Program structure. The UWCV
Program is envisioned to cover multiple Phases, each Phase demonstrating an increasing capability applied to a
common core USV. Work under this Agreement will be initiated by the receipt of a funding document from a
sponsor requesting work be performed in a specific area of the UWCV Program. The funding document will be
accompanied by a Task Description Document (TDD) which will provide work specifications, the period of
performance. and budgetary data. A sample TDD is attached to this Agreement as Attachment (1). As the
UWCV Program is multi phased, over the term of the Agreement additional development phases may be added,
and additional TDDs developed as a result. The Team shall perform the research and development prescribed in
the TDD(s), and provide all reports required by Attachment (2), Report Requirements. The "Final Report" shall
be provided to the Government upon the completion of this Agreement, or its termination, whichever event
occurs first.

2. The specific items deliverable to NUWCDIVNPT will be defined in each individual TDD.

3. During the term of the Agreement, the Government and the Consortium, collectively, and the Consortium
Members, individually, agree to make a good faith effort to accomplish the best possible research and
development results in a spirit of cooperation and open communication. The Government and the Consortium will
enter into a separate Participative Management Agreement, to establish a mutually acceptable framework for
achieving these goals.

NUWCDIVNPT. However, in any case where publication, sale, or public use has initiated the one (1)-year
statutory period wherein valid patent protection can still be obtained in the United States, the period for such
notice may be shortened by NUWCDIVNPT to a date that is no more than sixty (60) calendar days prior to the
end of the statutory period.

5. The Consortium Member shall file its initial patent application on a Subject Invention to which it elects to retain
title within two (2) years after election of title or, if earlier, prior to the end of the statutory period wherein valid
patent protection can be obtained in the United States after a publication, or sale, or public use. The Consortium
Member may elect to file patent applications in additional countries (including the European Patent Office and the
Patent Cooperation Treaty) within either ten (10) months of the corresponding initial patent application or six (6)
months from the date permission is granted by the Commissioner of Patents and Trademarks to file foreign patent
applications, where such filing has been prohibited by a Secrecy Order.
6. Requests for extension of the time for disclosure election and filing may, at the discretion of NUWCDIVNPT,
and after considering the position of the Consortium Member, be granted.

7. Upon NUWC's written request, the Consortium Member shall convey title to any Subject Invention to
NUWC under any of the following conditions:

a. If the Consortium Member fails to disclose or elects not to retain title to the Subject Invention within the times
specified in this Article; provided, that the Government may only request title within ninety (90) calendar days
after learning of the failure of the Consortium Member to disclose or elect within the specified times.

b. In those countries in which the Consortium Member fails to file patent applications within the times specified in
this Article; provided, that if the Consortium Member has filed a patent application in a country after the times
specified in this Article, but prior to its receipt of the written request by NUWCDIVNPT the Consortium
Member shall continue to retain title in that country; or

c. In any country in which the Consortium Member decides not to continue the prosecution of any application for,
to pay the maintenance fees on, or defend in reexamination or opposition proceedings on, a patent on a Subject
Invention.

8. The Consortium Member shall retain a nonexclusive, royalty-free license throughout the world in each Subject
Invention to which the Government obtains title. The license extends to all subsidiaries and affiliates, if any, within
the corporate structure of the Consortium Member, and includes the right to grant licenses of the same scope to
the extent that the Consortium Member was legally obligated to do so at the time the Agreement was awarded
and to its customers and subcontractors. The license is transferable only with the approval of NUWCDIVNPT,
except when transferred to the successor of that part of the business to which the invention pertains.
NUWCDIVNPT approval for license transfer shall not be unreasonably withheld.

9. The Consortium Member's domestic license may be revoked or modified by NUWCDIVNPT to the extent
necessary to achieve expeditious, practical application of the Subject Invention pursuant to an application for an
exclusive license submitted consistent with appropriate provisions at 37 CFR Part 404. This license shall not be
revoked in that field of use or the geographical areas in which the Consortium Member has achieved practical
application and continues to make the benefits of the invention reasonably accessible to the public. The license in
any foreign country may be revoked or modified at the discretion of NUWCDIVNPT to the extent that the
Consortium Member, its licensees, or the subsidiaries or affiliates have failed to achieve practical application in
that foreign country.

10. Before revocation or modification of the license, NUWCDIVNPT shall furnish the Consortium Member a
written notice of its intention to revoke or modify the license, and the Consortium Member shall be allowed thirty
(30) calendar days (or such other time as may be authorized for good cause shown) after the notice to show
cause why the license should not be revoked or modified.
11. The Consortium Member agrees to execute or to have executed and promptly deliver to NUWCDIVNPT all
instruments necessary to (i) establish or confirm the rights the Government has throughout the world in those
Subject Inventions to which the Consortium Member elects to retain title, and (ii) convey title to the Consortium
Member when requested under this Article and to enable the Government to obtain patent protection throughout
the world in that Subject Invention.

12. The Consortium Member agrees to require, by written agreement, its employees, other than clerical and non-
technical employees, to disclose promptly in writing to personnel identified as responsible for the administration of
patent matters each Subject Invention made under this Agreement in order that the Consortium Member can
comply with the disclosure provisions of this Article. The Consortium Member shall instruct employees, through
employee agreements or other suitable educational programs, on the importance of reporting inventions in
sufficient time to permit the filing of patent applications prior to U. S. or foreign statutory bars.

13. The Consortium Member shall notify NUWCDIVNPT of any decisions not to continue the prosecution of a
patent application, pay maintenance fees, or defend in a reexamination or opposition proceedings on a patent, in
any country, not less than thirty (30) calendar days before the expiration of the response period required by the
relevant patent office.

14. The Consortium Member shall include, within the specification of any United States patent application and
any patent issuing thereon covering a Subject Invention, the following statement: "This invention was made with
Government support under Agreement No. N66604-01-9-1264. The Government has certain rights in this
invention."

15. The Consortium Member shall include this Article, suitably modified, to identify the subcontractor, in all
subcontracts or lower tier agreements, regardless of tier, for experimental, developmental, or research work.

16. Upon request, the Consortium Member agrees to submit, during the term of the Agreement, an annual report
on the utilization of a Subject Invention or on efforts at obtaining such utilization that are being made by the
Consortium Member or licensees or assignees. Such reports shall include information regarding the status of
development, date of first commercial sale or use, and such other data and information as the agency may
reasonably specify. The Consortium Member also agrees to provide additional reports as may be requested by
NUWCDIVNPT in connection with any march-in proceedings undertaken by NUWCDIVNPT in accordance
with this Article. Consistent with 35 U.S.C. ss.
202(c)(5), NUWCDIVNPT agrees it shall not disclose such information to persons outside the Government
without permission of the Consortium Member.
17. Notwithstanding any other provision of this clause, the Consortium Member agrees that it shall not grant to
any person the exclusive right to use or sell any Subject Invention in the United States unless such person agrees
that any product embodying the Subject Invention or produced through the use of the Subject Invention shall be
manufactured substantially in the United States. However, in individual cases, the requirements for such an
agreement may be waived by NUWCDIVNPT upon a showing by the Consortium Member that reasonable but
unsuccessful efforts have been made to grant licenses on similar terms to potential licensees that would be likely
to manufacture substantially in the United States or that, under the circumstances, domestic manufacture is not
commercially feasible.

B. No Consortium Member makes any representation, warranty, indemnification or inducement with respect to
the infringement of intellectual property rights of third parties.

of trade, or course of dealing, of any provision of this Agreement will be effective unless in writing and signed by
the party against whom such waiver, amendment or modification is sought to be enforced. No waiver by any
party of any default in performance by the other party under this Agreement or of any breach or series of
breaches by the other party of any of the terms or conditions of this Agreement shall constitute a waiver of any

that Agreement. Performance of any obligation required of a party under this Agreement may be waived only by
a written waiver signed by a duly authorized officer of the other party, that waiver shall be effective only with

                                         Master Marketing Agreement

This Master Marketing Agreement ("Agreement"), is entered into as of the later of the dates set forth at the end
of this Agreement (the "Effective Date"), by and between Integrated Maritime Platforms International, Inc. a
corporation duly organized under the laws of the State of Washington and having its principal place of business at
9119 Ridgetop Blvd, Silverdale, WA 98110 ("IMPI"), and Science Applications International Corporation, a
corporation duly organized under the laws of Delaware and having its principal place of business at 10260
Campus Point Drive, San Diego, California 92121 ("SAIC"). IMPI and SAIC may hereinafter be referred to
individually as a "Party" or collectively as the "Parties".

WHEREAS, SAIC is recognized as being a leader in the telecommunications and systems integration field with
technologies and expertise that includes, but is not limited to, systems design and engineering, database
architecture, software development, and large project management.

WHEREAS, IMPI is in the business of providing high speed multi-mission marine vessels,

WHEREAS, IMPI and SAIC mutually desire to establish a marketing relationship with each other, to further
both their businesses.

NOW THEREFORE, in consideration of the mutual terms and conditions set forth herein, the Parties hereby
agree as follows:

1. Scope of the Agreement. This Agreement is a master agreement that commits the Parties to work together for
their mutual benefit to identify and advise each other as to specific opportunities to market and advertise their
respective services and products, as provided by Attachment A. Each marketing opportunity shall be defined and
described in written, mutually agreed-upon exhibits attached hereto (each a "Marketing Exhibit"). Each Marketing
Exhibit shall specify the particular marketing opportunity, the complimentary products and/or services to be
marketed, the prospective customer base, and the scope of effort required of each Party. Each Marketing Exhibit
shall, when executed, become an addendum to this Agreement. The first Marketing Exhibit shall be titled
"Marketing Exhibit No. 1," and additional Marketing Exhibits shall be numbered sequentially.

(a) The obligations of the Parties under this Agreement are non-exclusive. Either Party may, at any time and for
any reason, enter into similar arrangements with any other entity with respect to the same or similar areas or
opportunities set forth in the Marketing Exhibits or for any other business purposes.

(b) Unless otherwise specified in this Agreement or a Marketing Exhibit executed hereunder, each Party will bear
all costs, risks and liabilities incurred by it arising out of its obligations and efforts under this Agreement and any
such Marketing Exhibit. Unless otherwise specified in this Agreement or a Marketing Exhibit, neither Party shall
have any right to any reimbursement, payment or compensation of any kind from the other Party for activities
pursuant to this Agreement or a Marketing Exhibit.

(c) This Agreement, including all Marketing Exhibits, sets forth the provisions and conditions pursuant to which
the Parties may identify and advise each other of a mutually beneficial marketing opportunity.
(d) Each Party shall designate one or more authorized representatives to interact with the other for purposes of
this Agreement. Each Party's representative(s) may select and submit to the other for its consideration such
marketing opportunities that the Party believes may be of mutual interest and the representatives shall jointly
determine whether to pursue such marketing opportunity together. If the Parties determine to pursue an
opportunity jointly, the representatives shall determine the appropriate marketing strategy. The representatives
shall meet and confer periodically as necessary, either in person or by telephone, to discuss prospective
marketing opportunities and performance with respect to existing Marketing Exhibits. If either Party's
representative determines that it is not in that Party's best interest to pursue an opportunity jointly, either Party is
free to pursue such opportunity, using its sole efforts or in conjunction with any other person or entity.

(e) In those circumstances where the Parties' marketing efforts identify a specific business opportunity, as set
forth in a Marketing Exhibit, and the Parties decide to pursue the opportunity jointly, then the Parties agree to
enter into good faith negotiations to execute an appropriate definitive agreement for the particular business
opportunity. Each such definitive agreement shall set forth additional terms and conditions with respect to the
rights and obligations of the Parties with regard to that specific business opportunity.

2. Term and Termination.

(a) This Agreement shall have an initial term of twelve
(12) months commencing on the Effective Date (the "Initial Term"). Following the Initial Term, this Agreement
may be extended only by the written, mutual agreement of both Parties for an additional period of twelve (12)
months (each a "Renewal Term"). For purposes of this Agreement, the Initial Term and any Renewal Terms shall
be known as the Term.

(b) Each Party shall have the right to terminate this Agreement at any time and for any reason, with or without
cause, effective upon thirty (30) days prior written notice. Neither Party shall be entitled to reimbursement for or
be obligated to pay any damages, costs or expenses in connection with such termination. Upon the termination of
this Agreement, each Party will return to the other Party or destroy all drawings, specifications, manuals and other
printed or reproduced material (including information stored on machine readable media) provided by the
disclosing Party to the receiving Party and shall use commercially reasonable efforts to destroy all backup copies
of such information made by the receiving Party or its employees, wherever located.

(c) The Parties acknowledge that termination or expiration of this Agreement shall terminate each Marketing
Exhibit executed hereunder, unless the Parties expressly agree to the contrary in writing.

3. Intellectual Property.

(a) The Parties shall each retain ownership of and all right, title and interest in and to their respective pre-existing
Intellectual Property (as that term is defined in Article 3(c) below), and no license or right to use therein, whether
express or implied, is granted by this Agreement or as a result of the work performed by either Party hereunder
or in pursuit hereof. To the extent the Parties wish to grant to the other rights or interests in pre-existing
Intellectual Property, separate license agreements on mutually acceptable terms will be executed.
(b) With respect to Intellectual Property created as a result of the combined efforts of both Parties, prior to
undertaking such creation the Parties shall set forth in a separate written agreement the specific terms and
conditions of ownership and rights to use such newly created Intellectual Property. In the event the Parties fail to
set forth such a prior written agreement, then the Parties hereby jointly agree any such newly created Intellectual
Property shall be jointly owned, without obligation of accounting. Such joint ownership in any such newly created
Intellectual Property shall not be construed to include any express or implied form of license or right to use the
pre-existing Intellectual Property of either Party.

(c) As used herein the term "Intellectual Property" shall mean patents, copyrights, trade marks, trade names,
inventions (whether or not patentable), works of authorship, trade secrets, techniques, know-how, ideas,
concepts, algorithms and all other forms of intellectual property rights. As used herein the term "pre-existing
Intellectual Property" means any Intellectual Property previously conceived, developed or reduced to tangible
medium as demonstrated by written documentation.

4. Warranty Disclaimer and Limitation of Liability. Neither Party makes any warranties whatsoever to the other
Party, express or implied, with regard to the products or services of that Party or any matter relating to this
Agreement and any Marketing Exhibits, and each Party specifically disclaims all such warranties and conditions,
including any warranty of title, merchantability, and fitness for a particular purpose. In no event shall either Party
be liable to the other for any punitive, exemplary, special, indirect, incidental or consequential damages (including,
but not limited to, lost profits, lost revenues, lost business opportunities, loss of use or equipment down time, and
loss of or corruption to data) arising out of or relating to this Agreement or any Marketing Exhibit, regardless of
the legal theory under which such damages are sought, and even if the Parties have been advised of the possibility
of such damages or loss. The liability of either Party to the other for any claims, liabilities, actions or damages
arising out of or relating to this Agreement or any Marketing Exhibit, howsoever caused and regardless of the
legal theory asserted, including breach of contract or warranty, tort, strict liability, statutory liability or otherwise,
shall not, in the aggregate, exceed the amount of out-of-pocket costs incurred by the other Party in connection
with the specific Marketing Exhibit or opportunity under which such claim arose.

5. Confidentiality. In the performance of this Agreement and any Marketing Exhibits executed hereunder, certain
information may be exchanged between the Parties that is proprietary and confidential in nature. This proprietary
and confidential information is exchanged solely for the purposes set forth in this Agreement and any such
Marketing Agreement. This proprietary and confidential information shall remain the property of the disclosing
Party and shall be subject to the terms and conditions of the Non-Disclosure Agreement attached hereto as
Exhibit A.

6. Export Control. The Parties to this Agreement shall comply with all applicable United States export and
foreign import laws, rules, and regulations in the performance of the Parties' responsibilities and obligations under
this Agreement. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Parties shall not disclose any U.S.-origin
products, know-how, technical data, documentation, or other products or materials furnished to it pursuant to this
Agreement, to any person or in any manner which would constitute a violation of the export control regulations of
the United States then in effect.
7. Disputes. Any controversy, claim or dispute ("Dispute") arising out of or relating to this Agreement shall be
resolved by binding arbitration in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration
Association then in effect. Before commencing any such arbitration, the Parties agree to enter into negotiations to
resolve the Dispute. If the Parties are unable to resolve the Dispute by good faith negotiation, either Party may
refer the matter to arbitration. The arbitration shall take place in the County of San Diego, State of California. The
arbitrator(s) shall be bound to follow the provisions of this Agreement in resolving the dispute, and may not
award any damages which are excluded by this Agreement. The decision of the arbitrator(s) shall be final and
binding on the Parties, and any award of the arbitrator(s) may be entered or enforced in any court of competent
jurisdiction. Any request for arbitration of a claim by either Party against the other relating to this Agreement must
be filed no later than one (1) year after the date on which this Agreement expires or terminates, or such claim
shall be time barred.

8. Notices. All notices, certificates, acknowledgments or other written communications (hereinafter referred to as
"Notices") required to be given under this Agreement shall be in writing and shall be deemed to have been given
and properly delivered if duly mailed by certified or registered mail to the other Party at its address as follows, or
