7Market Summary Markets Past and Present The mass data read/write storage industry in the United States has been dominated by magnetic technology groups. Lowest cost per megabyte has been the evolution of the pricing model. Colossal will be ideally positioned to capitalize on this trend.There has been a rapid trend in the last year to move from magnetic technology into a non-magnetic technology for the following reasons :The possible power savings to large storage service providers which fits America’s goal for saving energyMuch faster data storage bandwidth to dataThe growth of the storage industry has been as high as 30 % per quarter according to Dataquest.Hundreds of New Hardware and Software Industries and Companies will be Created by this Nanotechnology.Tens of Thousands of New Jobs will be Created by this Nanotechnology.
8Market Summary Markets The Future High End Storage Aerospace / Defense 100 Terabytes to > 10 PetabytesNASA, European Space Agency, Japanese Space Agency, Russian Space Agency, and the Chinese Space Agency.Military/ Defense 10 Terabytes to 100 TerabytesMilitary and defense like Airforce, Army, and Navy need large amounts of data for software, geo data and training. Industrial/Commercial 1 Terabyte to 100 Terabytes Today's storage technology is insufficient to handle the New Digital Age of digitation of analog movies, books, pictures, and museum artwork.Low End Storage
9Opportunities Problems & Opportunities The only way to overcome the super paramagnetic limit is with some revolutionary new storage mechanism, using holographic and/or spintronic quantum effectsThe future is as much about BANDWIDTH and how fast the drive can Read and Write those great volumes of data to the data storage drive1.2 Petabyte Spintronics and 10 Petabyte Holographics drives are easily possibleCapitalizing on new cutting edge energy saving nanostorage technology that have large cost savings in initial purchase and operating cost
10Business Concept Summary of key technology: A New World’s First direction in optical data storageTwo patents have been granted for an integrated read/write head for ferroelectric optical mediaThe principal areas ( general description ) of the patents granted for are as follows:An integrated read/write head structure for saving and retrieving saved data.The use of a ferroelectric optical nanotechnology storage medium.
11Business Concept Summary of key technology: A floating Mos fet transistor for detection electric field potential from the ferroelectric nano particlesUV Laser Diode for Writing and Reading DataA photo diode or transistor for detecting refracted Ultra Violet / Deep Blue PhotonsCare has been taken into account for all potential claims of the invention as well as to protect them from possible competition from other nanotechnologies ( including inferior ones ).
12CompetitionCost by Sandisk Flashcard Solid State Drives Cost is $ a Gigabyte, Today’s Hard Drive is < $ .50 a Gigabyte, New Blu-Ray / HD-DVD is $ .012 a Gigabyte ( $2,500 drive ) , New Inphase / Optware Worm Holographic is $ .50 a Gigabyte ( $ 15,000 drive ), and Colosal’s Atomic Holographic Drive < $ a Gigabyte ($ 750 drive ).Most all WORM Phase Change companies use ferroelectric Ge2Sb2Te5 material. The DVD/CD/MO/Blu-Ray WORM Phase Change companies use ferroelectric media.Lucent's InPhase Inc. , Imation, Hitachi-Maxell , Polaroid's Aprilis , IBM Inc. , Holoplex, Optilink , Holostor , Matteris , Toshiba, NEC, Sony, TDK, Calimetrics, Mitsubishi, Shinano Kenshi Co and others have ferroelectric WORM technology.Colossal is the only infinite read/write ferroelectric storage.
13Goals & Objectives Goals To Exclusively License, Non-Exclusively License, and look for successful Merger / Acquisition with Public company.To have licensee successfully prove the nanotechnology in the laboratory and demonstrate the nanotechnology.To have its nanotechnology for the Disk / Tape / Card Mass Storage create a new industry standardAll patents exclusively licensed to Colossal Storage Corporation.
14Goals & Objectives What potential markets for Colossal Royalty Goals Future Market Projections, in which, Colossal Storage Corporation estimates its initial market share of 1% of total drive sales using its nanotechnology by year 2009Royalty GoalsColossal Storage Royalties from licensee's is projected to be, 2,529,000 drives at a sales price of approx. $ 750 dollars to large OEMS with the 3.5% royalty, amounts projected at initial gross annual royalty revenue sales of$ 66,386,250 representing 1% at market introduction.
15Storage Market Conditions Future MarketProjections for World Wide Shipments of Hard Drive, CD-Roms, CD-DVD, CD-R/W were over million drives in 2002 having projected sales revenues of over $ 50.3 billion on an upward sales trendIn 2006, Sales of 250 million Optical Drives with removable media and 250 Magnetic Hard Drives are expected to push revenue to $ 100 / $ 150 billion dollarsThe storage market is expecting continued growth as digitation of video and data storage progresses
16Financial Plan Colossal Storage Corporation wants to license or sell its technology or complete a successful IPO.The company has put together a $ 12 Million dollar business plan as examples to help prospective licensees or owners understand the potential financial rewards;Phase 1 - $ 4 million will be needed for Proof of Concept (determine and finalize drive parameters before building prototypes)Phase 2 - $ 8 million will be needed for prototypes and small limited production of the Spintronics and/or Holographics drives.
19Resource Requirements Primary raw materials needed for Colossal Storage products are as follows:Ferroelectric thin film disks ( concept disks developed in Colossal laboratory)Semiconductor UV laser heads (concept laser electric field heads developed in lab.)Assembly of spin stand electronics developed in Colossal laboratoryAll of the electronic components are easily sourced and multiple suppliers have been identified. There are multiple potential sourcesA potential source for additional research and design help can be added by the continued interest from the scientific communityColossal Storage will perform all research and prototype development in our laboratory by our scientist
20Risks & RewardsThe success of the Company’s efforts by successfully proving and demonstrating our patented nanotechnology works to potential buyers of our stock and our companyPotential billion dollar company with high ROI for investors depends on completion of private placement offeringBeing able to attract and retain the best scientistThe key risks in the Start-up plan for Colossal Storage are:The completion of patent process is doneThe establishment of Corporate Identity is doneA joint venture equity investment partner is neededFunding of $ 12 Million startup venture capital is needed
21Key IssuesColossal will raise $ 12 Million amount in a Private Placement Memorandum under US Securities law to complete the required funding process.Al Shugart, Doug Pewitt, Randell Young and the rest of the board are convinced that with $12 million we can develop the technology into viable products, launch the company and reach sufficient profitability to conclude a successful IPO. We also plan on licensing the technology to other manufacturers but we hold that having the capacity to develop the technology ourselves improves greatly our negotiating position with potential manufacturing partners.We are offering a one-third equity stake in Colossal Storage with a six percent preferred return for $12 million.

25Pockels Effect Fig 3 Pockels Effect. Certain crystals also exhibit a linear electro-optic effect such that the birefringence occurs when it is placed in an electric field and a beam of light is passed through the sample in the direction of the field.Induced birefringence (Electric field).where is the Pockels coefficient, and is the index with no field applied. ThereforeBoth Pockels and Kerr effects can be used to construct very fast optical shutters( sec) by placing them between crossed polarizers. When retardation = device will be transparent.Pockels cells work with typically lower voltages than equivalent Kerr cell.Ray Sharples
