Alan Bergstein, publisher of Military & Aerospace Electronics (, said, “Our 2017 Honorees are an outstanding example of companies who are making an impact.”

Fiberguide Industries received the Platinum Award, which highlights a superb innovation, characterized by a groundbreaking approach to meeting a need, or a new level of performance, efficiency, ease-of-use, or other beneficial quality.

The winning RARe Motheye Fiber is based on a unique, randomized process which creates nanostructures on the fiber surface. This results in fiber optic cables with anti-reflective properties as well as superior wavelength range, durability and damage thresholds when compared with commonly used coated thin-film surfaces. This breakthrough technology can be used for digital projection, bioanalytical instrumentation, high energy spectroscopy and many other applications. The Innovators Awards are judged based on the following criteria:

  • Innovation
  • Value to the User
  • Sustainability
  • Meeting a Defined Need
  • Collaboration
  • Impact
