August - National Inventors Month

Some of the greatest inventions throughout history were patented in August, summer's hottest month. In 1998, to commemorate the rich history of patents and promote innovation and creativity, the United Inventors Association, the Academy of Applied Science, and Inventors Digest magazine joined together and officially named August "National Inventors Month."

This August Light Brigade is focusing on the inventors and inventions that have historically made an impact on the fiber optic industry, where we are today, and where the future of fiber optics is going.
