Just wanted to give a quick update on some of what we’ve been up to at Altius Space Machines over the past several weeks.
The Ventions avionics contract we previously mentioned has been underway for a few weeks now. I’ll probably need to get their approval before I can share any details, but Ian’s been making solid progress since we had our kickoff meeting with them last month.
We also just signed our second contract today, which is a small feasibility study that should get me on payroll as well. I’m not sure yet what I can say about the project, so I’ll have to fill in the details later.
With a second contract, Ian will be joining me up here in Louisville, meaning that we needed to find some workspace to lease. After shopping around, we decided to rent a small office from “The Vault“, which is a coworking space run by the Da Vinci Institute in Louisville. While we do eventually want to get our own space out in the Colorado Technology Center, these first two contracts don’t actually need a full-up shop for their hardware portions, so for the next few months this should work pretty well for us.
The Vault is basically a converted bank (at 511 E South Boulder Road) that is now being used by the Da Vinci institute for coworking space, and to host various startup related networking events. Here’s a picture of one of the events. The office room in the back on the right (the “Gutenberg Suite”) is the one we’re renting.
Hopefully I’ll have some more technical details to talk about soon, or business concept ideas, but for now I wanted to show you the results of some of the “boring details work” that’s an important part of getting a company like this off the ground.
