Liste des brevets deposes par M.A. Biot en Belgique, en France et aux EtatsUnis
 Linkage mechanism for steering of vehicles, Belgian patent 368, 623, March 15, 1930.
A linkage system which provides an exact kinematic solution to the problem of differential turning of the wheels for steering of automobiles and other vehicles.
 Radio guidance system for ships and aircraft, Belgian patent 372, 520, August 11, 1930.
(Dispositif emetteur recepteur realisant le reperage radioelectrique integral sans ondes dirigees.) The principle was described by M.A. Biot in a paper << Sur un procede de guidage des avions >> published in l'Onde Electrique, vol. 9, nø 107, pp. 520526, November 1930. Low frequency radio waves are transmitted from a main transmitter and its slave stations on synchronized frequencies. The transmitters are located about a hundred miles apart and the radio waves form a precise grid pattern of interference and phase difference. It provides an allweather flight position picture for aircraft, seagoing ships, etc. The principle has received wide application and has been incorporated in the BendixDecca system now used throughout the world. Other trade names for these systems are Dectra, Delrac and Navarho.
 Electrical synchronization of gun firing, through aircraft propeller disc, Belgian patent 37B, 042, March 16, 1931. Achievement of precise synchronization in the firing of guns and machine guns through aircraft propeller disc by substituting an electrical firing system for the mechanical one.
 Aircraft turbocompound engine, French patent 808, 770, November 4, 1935. An aircraft engine combining a piston engine and a twostage gas turbine. The patent claims are based on a detailed design carried out over a number of years in collaboration with L. Lvoff, director of << La Precision >> in Brussels and now chief engineer of the Machine Tool Division of << La Brugeoise >>, Belgium. Specific weight and fuel consumption were predicted and fully confirmed by recent development. The principle was incorporated in the Wright Aeronautical compound engine. The invention was disclosed to technical and executive personnel of Wright Aeronautical and discussed at their Patterson, New Jersey, plant in June 1936.
 Flutter predicting apparatus, Maurice A. Biot and Thomas H. Wiancko U.S. Patent Office 2448698, September 7, 1948.
Application, October 21, 1944. Electronic analog computer for the prediction of airplane flutter. An important novel feature was the design of a circuit which incorporates the effect of vorticity shedding of an oscillating wing.
 Hydraulic fracturing method to control vertical fracture height, J.L. Fitch, L. Masse, W.L. Medlin, M.A. Biot U.S. patent office 3851709, December 3, 1974.
Method of controlling height of fracture so that it does not extend vertically into adjacent formations on top and bottom.
 Harmonic oscillator for measuring dynamic elastic constants of rock materials. Maurice A. Biot, William L. MEDEIN, Lucien MASSE, U.S. patent office 4 412 452, November 1, 1983.
A simple harmonic oscillator for use in measuring dynamic elastic constants of rock material samples includes a pair of masses vertically suspended by a pair of wires with the rock sample between them acting as a spring.
