Galactic Horizon

Established in YE 40, Galactic Horizon is a small independent business that specialises in creating designs for technology including weapons, vehicles, digital systems and suits and is not limited to military tech. Being small, Horizon relies on corporate giants for manufacturing prototypes and demo models for its clients and in return can offer its designs and services for a trade price discount.

About Galactic Horizon

Galactic Horizon created in YE 40 was designed to be an outlet for creative minds by CEO Riccard Black, he wished to gather a group of people as passionate about technological design as he is and have them work on projects together. The business operates primarily on the design and sale of technological blueprints for many areas, this includes both militaristic and civilian uses which helps to increase their capacity for work, as well as providing employees with a variety of options not solely limited to one area of technology.

Motto

“With a new day comes a new idea, and with that a new horizon.”

Headquarters

A small 4 floor office building with pentagonal shape, ground floor consists of reception and relation services, second floor consists of initial design team and system code team, third floor consists of secondary design team and post design team, fourth floor consists of the management offices and conference room.

It’s run by CEO Riccard Black and was purchased after the business was approved independent operation from within S6 space, on the condition they are transparent with Section 6 and cooperate with any of their requests and have restrictions imposed on security personnel.

It's Located within Section 6 territory, 20mi west of Osman city and 1mi south of the S6 complex on the planet 188604.

Facilities

Minor Production Facility: Funded and built in early YE 40 to accommodate the newly created Sonic Suppression Rifle (SSR) and provide independent production ability for Horizon. The facility consists of one building and is lightly staffed without having to function 24/7, the staff consists of some new fabrication specialists and various old employees.

Macro/Micro Production Facility: Built by Horizon in mid YE 40 in preparation for a specific project as well as setting up the corporation for the future, the Macro/Micro facility specialises in developing the biggest and smallest tech Horizon offers with large fabrication bays for vehicles such as the Redback. In the second wing however many small labs house the precision equipment used to make the tiny internal components and for future development of nano technology.

Indoor Environmental Simulation Chamber: Built by Horizon in mid YE 40 to accompany its new production facilities, the advanced simulation chamber acts as the first test zone before live outdoor tests of weapons, vehicles and utility equipment alike. It contains the means to simulate space, deep sea and various atmospheric pressures as well as being outfitted with several of the Horizon weapons to test munition resistance on items expected to be used in combat situations.

Personnel Recreational and Residence Village: Built by Horizon in mid YE 40 to accommodate for the extra staff hired on with the recent announcement of the Horizon Expeditionary Force and the construction of the new production and testing buildings which require more security and manpower to run the equipment.

Structure

Initial Design Team: Consisting mainly of graphic designers the Initial Design team draws up plans for devices, vehicles, suits and other physical technology in concept and detailed sketches showing rough sizing and dimensions.

Secondary Design Team: Consisting mainly of engineers and theoretical science researchers, the Secondary Design team is responsible for checking and validating the probability of Initial Designs.

Post Design Team: Consisting mainly of fabrication and production specialists the Post Design team performs the final check of physical products and creates lists to accompany the design sheets for clients that includes material requirements, estimated production time and special notes concerning the product.

System Code Team: Consisting of Programmers and system designers the System Code team designs, writes and tests all the digital systems for horizon equipment and contract orders and often work with the Initial Design team to create the UI for each program.

Security Force: With the ever expanding complex now attracting more attention from the new customers it serves, Horizon hired and trained its own security force for constant defense of the premises when its allies may not arrive in time. While a well funded and organized attack on Horizon is very unlikely with its current reputation the planet is home to many raiders and criminals who may seek to benefit from theft or vandalism.

With the addition of production facilities and more hands on labs and equipment, the staff has increased however the structure remains the same with many of the specialists having double roles and helping out in the production stage as well as design.

History

In the closing weeks of YE 39 Riccard and his two children, Kryss and Donvan, along with a small group of his associates created a basic analytical AI they named Project Dawn. Having heard of S6 through various technology developers such as himself, Riccard and his group moved from their homes in Yamatai to 188604 to pursue the group. After several meetings to discuss the advantages of a partnership to provide S6 with a new independent design group and Horizon with the opportunity of a start-up alongside an advanced research group an agreement was reached.

Together Riccard and his group designed and built the company while further developing Project Dawn to assist them in running a business with the limited staff they had. On the day of the new year, Galactic Horizon became an officially recognised entity after the group was approved purchase of an unused office building in Section 6 territory after they were evaluated and approved by S6. In exchange for permission to purchase land and the building and operate their business out of S6 territory, they agreed to be transparent about major digital system breakthroughs including their own AI and other systems, along with cooperating with all S6 requests and having restrictions placed on security personnel numbers.

During the first half of YE 40 Horizon underwent several major expansion efforts to increase their ability as an independent and intergalactic producer as well as physical expansion of the HQ and surrounding complex, the new personnel buildings contain recreational and living spaces to ensure staff are comfortable when on site.
