I have invented a product that will use very small GPS locating
software, but I need to hire a GPS expert to write up the patent
application for me.  I cannot find such a person.  He or she may now
work for the military, an auto manufacturer, or a private company
which is already making products using GPS.  If you can get me
together with this special person, I will be happy to pay this fee.

It would be very hard for us researchers to guarantee that you and a
particular expert can come together and make this patent application
for you. Would contact information for GPS satellite experts,
engineers or companies be ok and you will just be the one who would
contact them and discuss the matter with them? I feel that this method
would be a more realistic solution.

Would such a list be ok as an answer?

Hi again!

It seems that direct contact with GPS engineers will not be a good
option since these might contain personal contact information and that
is not allowed here at Google Answers.

However, I can provide a list of contact information for the following:

1. List GPS manufacturers taht you can talk to.
2. GPS Consultants
3. GPS Non-Profit Organizations 

Maybe you can contact people in these groups to help you out. However,
it is advised that before talking to anyone that you protect yourself
from people who might steal your idea.

Will this be ok as an answer?

Another idea would be to contact patent writers.  Here is an article
about patent writers.

Hello -

Thank you for your question.  If you require any additional
information or assistance, please don't hesitate to ask.

There is a Pennsylvania-based company that can assist in all areas of
development of this product, from "concept through production,"
including patenting.  They do in-house engineering, design,
prototyping, as well as small-scale manufacturing.  I spoke with a
representative named Ted Zammit who confirmed his company's experience
with GPS and electronics, availability, and capability to handle your
needs as described.  Mr. Zammit tells me this is a very good window of
time for this type of project, as they just finished with a few other
projects and are now entertaining new ones.

Electronic Display Applications
121 Witmer Road
Horsham, PA 19044
(215) 675-1700
Ted Zammit (when calling, reference "Google Answers")

In addition, according to their websites, the following companies
appear to be able to do what you're looking for as well (in terms of
design and development); however, they're not on the east coast.

NavCom Technology, Inc.

Peter Williams of Navcom returned my call a few minutes ago.  He says
that geographical location really isn't an issue when working with
clients.  Here is his direct contact info:

I have not been able to contact my partners yet to set up conference
calls to your various suggested experts, but assuming your leads are
reliable, and there is no reason to think they are not, your research
has been the fastest, easiest way I was able to come up with
this/these expert resources.  Thank you very much.

rett1234 -

Thank you for the kind words and rating.  Glad to be of help!  

With regard to the $30 tip, if you're referring to researcher
easterangel-ga, you can open up a question directly to his attention
for $2.00 (Put "For easterangel-ga" in the subject of the new
question).  After he answers the question, you can then give him a $30

If you have any questions, let me know.

I have not yet had a chance to contact the suggested experts found by
this researcher but they were found within a week and were specific
enough for me to locate easily and within my perimeters of need. 
Seems great.  Very much appreciate this researcher and also  Angelbaby
who responded earlier and was right on the track, just not as specific
with the detailed expertize as I needed, but very attentive.    I
would like to give Angelbaby $30. tip if possible.

Thanks rett1234-ga for your offer!  

You can provide such a tip by asking a new question directly to me by
putting "For Easterangel" as the subject of your question. Very
similar to the way you posted your question "Easterangels".

Great job jbf777-ga for coming up with a very good answer!
