The Lagrange Foundation act as a source for innovations in what they believe to be a stagnant market. Pushing the boundries in terms of both civilian and military technologies, their approach is one of autonomy.
|“If I had asked people what they wanted two hundred years ago, they would have said faster horses. The true answer to the problem was he car. We want to be the ones providing the answers to the questions the people don't know how to ask.”|
Specifically, Lagrange deals in intellectual properties and the design of products rather than dealing with fabrication and distribution specifically at this time, which is often leased to other companies. At this time, they are bidding for military contracts with the StarArmy of Yamatai.
Formed in YE34 with the bifurification of Lazarus, Lagrange is a 'fork' company of the disgruntled members of the consortium who left to form their own group. They carry much of Lazarus' original vision though they choose to operate conservatively within the law, believing it will open up new opportunities.
Just like Lazarus, they operate anonymously with the same focus on decentralised systems and simulation, though a new emphasis on field-testing and reliability over breaking new ground is what marks Lagrange from its sister company, neither of which are on speaking terms with one another.
As before, the controlling interest in the company work anonymously and autonomously and have evade possible attempts of identification with the same structure of a fused CEO and engineering staff.
Lagrange are looking to expand into independent work away from any one nation. While Lazarus' vision made this possible, there were legal shortcomings that had to be overcome. While Lagrange works begrudgingly beneath the thumb of the Star Army of Yamatai, it affords them freedoms they formerly lacked.
Lazarus is looking to expand into independent work away from the Lorath Matriarchy and the UMC to establish a name for themselves in the sectors of civilian construction, propulsion and manufacturing internationally. Particularly, the consortium seeks to create its own network of fabrication and distribution chains.
