Who is inouï?

inouï llc was founded in June 2020 to develop telecommunications technology and products based on research patented by Gregory R. Warnes, Ph.D .

 

What is inouï’s technology? 

inouï’s technology portfolio is founded on the patented inouï modulation (US Patent US9602228B1) for encoding telecommunications data messages into waveforms yielding dramatic improvements in any of:

  • data throughput,
  • number of concurrent users,
  • noise (and jamming) resistance,
  • longer transmission distances,
  • reduced computational demand,
  • reduced antenna size,
  • reduced power demandsd
 

What are the applications of  inouï’s technology?

The patented inouï modulation can be used to create industry-disrupting products for a huge number of market segments, including:

  • wireless mobile telecommunications
  • broadband internet
  • satellite communications
  • internet backbone (microwave + fiber-optic)
  • industrial signalling
  • military communications systems
  • first responder radios

 


What will inouï sell?

There are a number of complementary approaches for monetizing inouï’s technology, including:

  1. Direct sales: Manufacture mobile units, base stations, and equipment for sales directly to customers (B2B or B2C).
  2. OEM sales: Manufacture mobile units, base stations, and equipment for resale by  retailers (e.g. Best Buy) or service providers (e.g. cell phone carriers, broadband providers).
  3. Components & Software:  Manufacture system components (e.g. semiconductor chips) and software for use by OEM manufacturers in their own products.
  4. IP Licensing: License technology to OEM or component manufacturers.

 

What is the market opportunity?

inouï’s technology can be used to create industry-disrupting products for a huge number of market segments, so the market opportunity is huge.  For example:

  • Wireless equipment: $80 Billion, with 5.5% CAGR through 2028 1
  • All telecommunications equipment: $468.4 Billion, with 6.4% CAGR through 2027 2
  • Entire telecommunications market: $1.74 Trillion, with 5% CAGR through 2027 3

What is inouï’s business model?

We expect our business to develop along a similar trajectory to Qualcomm 4 (NYSE QCOM), who introduced the CDMA spread spectrum modulation into telecommunications in the late 1980s.  We anticipate five business phases.
  1. Develop & protect the core technology     Complete ✔
  2. Practical demonstration    → Purpose of the current offering ←
  3. Gain practical experience in a small market
    - Both ends of link owned by same customer
    - No standards or compatibility issues
    => Low barrier to entry
  4. Launch into a large market
    - Build complete products for both ends of the link →  create competitive pressure.
    - Integrate inouï’s technology into industry standards
  5. Supply components and technology to OEMs
    - Ongoing research and development
    - Manufacture communications components for OEMs~
    - License technology to OEMs

What has inouï already accomplished?

While inouï llc was formed in June 2020, and thus has a very limited operating history, it is based on established research and development performed by Dr. Warnes, and it has made substantial progress to date, including generating revenue from consulting contracts for Dr. Warnes’s expertise,  and initiating both non-dilutive (e.g. grant) and equity based fundraising.

Research and Development

  • Prior to forming inouï llc in June 2020, the company completed the following research and development tasks:
  • Filed and received US Patent US9602228B1 for the inouï modulation
  • Performed mathematical analysis to validitate the inouï modulation
  • Performed static simulations to characterize the performance of the inouï modulation.

Revenue Generation

From June 2020 through April 20201, inouï llc successfully marketed Dr. Warnes’ expertise yielding income-generating consulting contracts:

  • Completed: $64,250
  • Ongoing: $18,000
  • Pending contracts:  $80,000+

Fundraising 

From June 2020 through April 2021, inouï llc initiated several fundraising activities, including both non-dilutive grant funding, and equity-based crowdfunding.

  • Non-dilutive (grants):
    • 2020-11-05 - Submitted project pitch for a National Science Foundation (NSF) Phase I Small Business Initiative Research (SBIR) grant on
    • 2020-11-12 - Project pitch for NSF SBIR approved, invited to submit full Phase I proposal..
    • 2021-06-03 (anticipated) NSF SBIR grant filing
  • Equity:
    • Engaged Americas Real Deal / Independent Stock Market and Mr.Crowd to organize an equity crowdfunding offering.

 

 What is inouï planning for 2021? 

We expect the following milestones will be fulfilled in 2021:

Technical: Demonstrate implementation feasibility and characterize real-world performance

  • Software simulation
    1. Create a simulation test-bed using industry-standard data-flow simulation and signal analysis software tools (e.g. GnuRadio or Matlab + Simulink)
    2. Implement the inouï modulation and demodulation in the data-flow simulation tools.
    3. Perform simulation studies to characterize performance of the new technique.:
      i. Characterize the effect of different parameter settings (number of sub-channels, channel separation, choice of offsets for each channel, symbol spacing, samples-per-symbol, etc.), and select a “standard” set of parameters for use in subsequent simulations.
      ii. Performance as a factor of noise/interference level and type relative to industry-standard methods (OFDM, CDMA, etc.) configured for the same to total data rate.
       
  • Hardware prototype & testing
  1. Create a SDR-based test-bed using industry-standard data-flow simulation tools (e.g. Matlab + Simulink) and SDR hardware (e.g. , USRP)
  2. Develop SDR host software, FPGA firmware, and embedded processor software implementing the inouï modulation and demodulation.
  3. Perform laboratory studies to characterize performance of the new technique using the SDR hardware
    i. Validate software simulations for selected parameter
    ii. Demonstrate performance as a factor of noise/interference level and type and compare to industry-standard methods (OFDM, CDMA, etc.).
  • Mathematical analysis, modeling,  and algorithm development:
  1. Determine how offsets should be selected to minimize cross-channel interference.
  2. Determine how to select the optimal number of sub-bands and number of concurrent channels to use as a function of channel properties (noise, fading, doppler frequency shift) and target application.
  3. Develop and implement an efficient algorithm for decoding multiple concurrent channels (e.g. for use in base stations, or for inverse multiplexing to increase total data rate)

Fund-raising:

  • Non-dilutive (grants):
    • Prepare and submit a Phase 1 Small Business Initiative Research grant (SBIR) to the National Science Foundation (NSF)
    • Identify additional sources for grant funding
       
  • Equity
    • Identify additional sources for equity funding
       
  • Consulting income:
    • Continue soliciting and executing consulting contracts.

Market & Product Research: Identify initial target market segment

Given the wide applicability of the inouï modulation technique, it is essential to research the market to identify and then prioritize specific market segments.  Once this research is complete, an initial market segment will be selected.
