    It looks like they're supposed to be an additive manufacturing rocket engine company. We seriously need more military rocket manufacturers aeroisraelite shekeldyne can't even meet GMLRS orders 2 fricking years into this mess.

      Not a grift. It's a startup SRM company that's helping alleviate the big supply chain issues in the US from the lack of competition as is saying. They've already won some big awards.

      This might be some sort of low-cost GPS guided ballistic missile, since I can't see any guidance.

      The Army's all aboard defense startups since Congress give some big incentives to contracting small companies and the lack of defense competition is becoming a hassle. Anduril for instance has done very well for themselves.

        What's the point when any "small company" that creates something new that looks promising gets immediately bought up by either TX or GD etc so that they can own the new patents? It's monopoly with extra steps.

          That's the american system for you. It's by design. It's always been like this.

        Sounds like a good thing tbh. The SRM industry is way too consolidated given how important it is for munitions.

    It's called marketing, wtard. People do it when their products do not speak for themselves.

    A couple of things.
    1. American tech is suffering from a competency crisis. Does a startup really have access to what remaining talented engineers / scientists there are left?
    2. Cutting edge aerospace is more defined by physical / material limitations not by design. Does a startup really have a new innovation the big players never pursued?

      This is only said by people who aren't actually in the industry who think any sort of industrial accident is immediately the fault of brown people.

        Just to play Devil's Advocate, even without any diversity/inclusion garbage I'd guess it's perfectly possible for much weaker coders not understanding what old guys wrote before they retired, or engineers having the "book smarts" but not enough experience.

          It's not like we don't have smart people born anymore. They exist and the nation is full of talent. The issue is one more of the education and job market. That talent went into other lines of work to chase money. The good ones want to get paid what they are worth. Offshoring did severe damage to the US job market long term in many ways. In terms of tech, nobody is becoming an electrical engineer anymore. There's no money in it. All that happens in Asia. Everyone who would have been an electrical engineer is a programmer instead now. Many will pick it up as a hobby, this is where most of the innovation in the marker space comes from, but they aren't doing that as their day job like they would have in the 70's.

          So no, its not a competency problem, its a resource allocation problem. All of your analytical problem solvers went were they were valued.

            If all the competent people are chasing other avenues, and many critical industries will suffer as a result as we can't reverse course, that's a competency crisis.
            I really don't want to start compounding different issues on top of each other but while smart people are still born, modern life has forced smart people to delay parenthood. You pursue a masters and then have an internship for a year or two, that's a huge chunk of your youth devoted to just gaining entry into the field.

          Yeah because they didn't fricking document it properly and then it was modified without any documentation or version control.
          And then they used some proprietary library from a company that went out of business 20 years ago...
          And don't get me started on the use of global fricking variables.

              I dunno, sounds like a midwit who’s in over his head and handles it with having a soi-fit and seeking social reinforcement. That grade of developer is probably why Windows has degraded so much.

        I don’t know about brown people but it’s simply a fact that the American tech sector is full of failures. Intel, AMD, Boeing. Lockheed just failed with the ARRW program, LCS program, CPS program has no design in testing, etc. All these space startups have been nothing but failures. Even Starship has been nothing but failures and that program has SERIOUS funding. The past of amazing tech successes seems to have disintegrated and American tech today seems to be more often than not a failure, it’s unmistakable that something is happening.

          Are you moronic? Do you seriously think every big tech advancement in the past just instantly worked on the very first prototype the second they tested it?
          I'm really sick of the modern day reactionary morons who watched the first starship test explode and immediately declared
          >its a failure, its over, cancel all funding!
          I'm sure everyone will be screeching about how starship is a failure and waste of money until the very moment they complete it and it revolutionizes space lift, just like with the falcon 9

            Stop it. The last test had Starship still losing heat tiles and a door malfunctioned — that’s space kindergarten shit that’s going wrong. It’s incompetent team managers, untalented student engineers, poor processes, something is going wrong. Stop pretending everything is fine.
