Recent activity at the USPTO website regarding patent application :

leads me to believe that we are close to being awarded a patent .
I believe this patents is related to DPD .
To access this patent application go to : http://portal.uspto.gov/pair/PublicPair & enter 13/648,163 .

Not fully knowing the patent procedure, I checked the history of one of our know patent awards - 12/859,571 .
03-11-2014 Mail Notice of Allowance
03-07-2014 Document Verification
03-07-2014 Notice of Allowance Data Verification Completed
03-07-2014 Case Docketed to Examiner in GAU
03-05-2014 Reasons for Allowance
Notice the similarities and days between the dates of the 2 patent applications .
I think we can expect a NOA ( Notice of Allowance ) , which is bascially the patent award less the formality of fees & paperwork , in the next few days .
Once the patent is in hand , I believe contracts will be signed & equipment will be ordered .
