In general, we plan to license our hardware for use on a specific problem where we feel our hardware can help. Our current policy regarding deployment/use of our proprietary equipment by a third party is as follows:
When Phoenix is approached, we will request sufficient information regarding the facts pertaining to the project and the improvement goal of the client in order that we may be able to make a preliminary assessment of our ability to solve the problem with one or a combination of our tools.
If we believed we could help solve the problem PEL would, following the client's agreement and direction, proceed as follows:
After this, we would wait for the client's engineer to carry out post-treatment soil investigation testing to determine if the pre-defined criteria for ground improvement had been achieved.
Presuming performance criteria are met, it would then be left to the client's engineers to specify the array spacing and withdrawal rate to apply for site-wide implementation of the solution.
In cases of mutual satisfaction, a license would be issued to an acceptable general contractor or mining operation. This would authorize machine use over a specific period of time for this specific project.
All of our costs for the above, starting from site visit on, to be paid for by the client.
