Sapphire Window & Corrector Optic

Optimax is pleased to announce it has received two Phase II Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) awards for processing of sapphire window and fabricating corrector optics for aerodynamic domes. This will expand our research efforts and provide funding for an additional two years.

SBIR is a federally funded program that enables small businesses, like Optimax, to explore their technological potential and provides the incentive to profit from its commercialization. By including qualified small businesses in the nation’s R&D arena, high-tech innovation is stimulated and the United States gains entrepreneurial spirit as it meets its specific research and development needs.

Phase II awards are based on results and commercialization potential proven in Phase I.
