Availability & Licensing
eSTOMP is a derivative work of STOMP, and Battelle Memorial Institute (Battelle) retains all copyrights for STOMP and its derivative works, as permitted by the U.S. Department of Energy. Parties interested in obtaining a copy of the water operational mode of eSTOMP must first undergo an export control review by Battelle and enter into a non-exclusive license agreement with Battelle, the form of which depends on the party affiliation as listed below.
Since eSTOMP has been developed with U.S. Government funds, the U.S. Government and those parties working on behalf of the U.S. Government, have certain limited rights in such software at no cost. Those U.S. Government agencies, or parties working on their behalf, can acquire the eSTOMP-W(-R) operational mode by downloading and completing the Government Use Agreement Form and returning it to the address specified on the form. This is currently the only operational mode that is available for public release.
Those government agencies that do not have a U.S. Government association and are interested in obtaining a license to eSTOMP should contact Sara Hunt, Commercialization Manager at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory.
Battelle has historically provided low-fee copies of the STOMP simulator to students and professors conducting research at universities within and outside of the United States and since eSTOMP is a derivative work of STOMP, its release will abide by the same licensing rules as STOMP. Under this arrangement, Battelle has requested that researchers first submit a formal written request [click here to submit request] prior to execution of a simple Educational Use Site License. Only eSTOMP-W(-R) is available at this time. The associated license fees are $300.00 for domestic-based and $500.00 for foreign-based universities. These distributions of the eSTOMP software are designed to benefit both the university and Battelle through growth of the user base and collaborative research and development.
Commercial or Private Organizations
Organizations can enter into a commercial site license with Battelle for modifying and/or using the eSTOMP simulator for their internal purposes. Only eSTOMP-W(-R) is available at this time. The terms of such a license are negotiable in view of the variety and broad scope of commercial needs. Further, the commercial party has the option of linking the license to a concurrent collaborative research and development activity with Battelle. Under such arrangements, Battelle will typically retain sole ownership of all intellectual property rights to the software as provided by Battelle. The software license will typically limit the use of eSTOMP for internal purposes with no rights to sublicense the software.
