Terms of an April 1997 agreement allow Autonomous to manufacture and sell products based on Visx patents, but only in foreign markets. Autonomous brought suit against Visx in October 1996 seeking to have a Visx patent (4,718,418) declared invalid. Autonomous, which produces the LADARVision system, is also seeking the invalidity and unenforceability of Visx patent 4,665,913. Both patents are cited in Visx' suit
