GISHMARCo Test & Development
No information yet available.
Control of the Gishmarkash system under an Imperial Edict allows sections to be allocated for extensive testing of all manner of products, including potentially dangerous systems.
Such testing is necessary in developing new technology but also required to obtain the Imperial safety certificates for new starships.
Stock ownership: GISHMARCo Test & Development is a wholly owned subsidiary of GSbAG.
History and background
The facilities provided by GISHMARCo are generally only available to companies within the GSbAG corporation. A few other companies have been granted access, but this is a rare, and expensive, exception.
Magash Shipbuilding & Spacedock Company - Parent GSbAG took a 33% stake in the Magash company when Vilani megacorporation Zirunkariish arranged mezzazine financing to the small company. In return for development of the yards on Magash, GSbAG got a valuable partner. This ownership / partnership allows GSbAG to refer customers for limited production runs of more common vessels while retaining specialty construction contracts and more valuable customers. It also allows Magash to do reliability testing of its vessels at the GISHMARCo facilities in the Gishmarkash (Dagudashaag 3209) system. However, all data acquired from such testing must be shared with GISHMARCo.
Phylum U'Chakzii-Ziask SIA - Parent GSbAG took a 07% stake in the Phylum U'Chakzii-Ziask. This partnership provided Phylum U'Chakzii-Ziask and Phylum Kiaskui with additional resources at a time when they needed them and deeper market access to Imperial and Vilani customers. GSbAG also got a valuable partner. Fusion rocketry remains a Phylum U'Chakzii-Ziask speciality, including Bussard ramjets. Information now shared with GSbAG researchers, designers, and starship architects exclusively. They also produce a wide range of high-gee interceptors, fast transports, and courier vehicles which leave gravitic vessels standing still. Those are now available to GSbAG customers. It also allows Phylum U'Chakzii-Ziask to do research and testing of its vessels at the GISHMARCo facilities in the Gishmarkash (Dagudashaag 3209) system.
Murdstone Yards - Parent GSbAG took a 09% stake in Murdstone Yards when Zirunkariish arranged mezzazine financing for the Board of Directors and Duke Vincent's family. This ownership / partnership allows GSbAG to refer customers for ships in the 100 to 5000 ton range while retaining larger size construction contracts and more valuable customers. It also allows Murdstone Yards to do reliability testing of its vessels at the GISHMARCo facilities in the Gishmarkash (Dagudashaag 3209) system. However, all data acquired from such testing must be shared with GISHMARCo.
