The Founding Team
TSI was founded by a team that includes technology pioneers and highly successful business executives with proven track records, ranging from a satellite internet and next-generation telecommunications pioneer to a Private Equity executive who raised multi-billion dollar funds, a business strategist with multi-billion dollar projects under his (Six Sigma) belt, and a specialist with decades of Finance, Mergers & Acquisitions experience.
The team has worked together for more than a combined 200 years on numerous large-scale, disruptive projects.
TSI's founding CEO, Neal S. Lachman, is an expert in the company's field. He is an outspoken technologist who pioneered satellite internet (1998 - 2000), and has been involved in space-related projects since 1995, when he and two of his brothers received three global satellite TV broadcast licenses from the Dutch government.
TSI's founding team makes up the Supervisory Board of Titans Universe (and TSI), with the exception of Mr. Lachman who serves as TSI's first CEO and manages the executive board and advisory board, which consists of experts in the space and space-related industries.
TSI is part of Titans Universe, the world's largest startup, an ethical, social, and inclusive company. Forty percent of Titans Universe's annual profits will return to humanity in various ways.
TSI is embarking on the largest and most ambitious commercial space program in the world: a collection of incredible projects that will disrupt and change the global space industries.
Through our investments and transparent approach, we strive to inspire the next generation of ethical leaders and innovators who will build companies and projects that will benefit Earth.
For a Better World
Titans Universe is set up to quickly transform into a powerhouse, both in earth and space industries.
We are building one of the largest company in the world in the next 10 year, and we strive to be the largest company in 15 years with multiple trillion dollars in revenues.
As of yet, this is the boldest vision and business case for low-earth orbit coverage and moon industrialization.
While that may sound very money-driven, our team isn't doing this for the money. In fact, we were careful not to accept too much external capital, which allowed us to consciously create a humanity-focused company and to select projects that are destined to make a major difference.
More than 40% of our annual profits will benefit humanity one way or another. Indeed, we are driven by old fashioned ideals, and not simple greed.
Take Heavy Industry to the Moon
In his 1979 book (The High Frontier - Human Colonies in Space), Princeton physicist, Dr. Gerard O'Neill, envisioned a future of humanity including space habitats, and taking heavy industry away from Earth and doing it in space.
TSI is acting on that vision, but we mainly focus on Moon industrialization - by the mid 2030s.
Mining the Moon - not asteroids
Obviously, TSI believes this to be true, but partly.
TSI's projects are complicated in nature, but as contrarian as it sounds, we like to oversimplify things; it makes life easier for us.
Reaching the asteroids is going to be a very long and difficult journey. Mining asteroids on an industrial scale is most likely thirty or even fifty years away.
However, Earth's Moon reportedly has more metals than all asteroids combined. TSI's mining efforts will purely focus on mining the Moon.
This is yet another reason why industrializing the Moon is going to benefit Earth and its living creatures.
TSi is creating several locations for large scale space manufacturing.
Research, testing, and production in zero- or microgravity and in the vacuum of space will allow humanity, science, and businesses to access certain products and materials that cannot be manufactured or produced on Earth in the same quality or under such specific conditions.
TSi will partner with industry players -big and small- to research, test, innovate, and produce goods and materials on the OrbitalLoop at normal gravity, in Low-Earth Orbit at zero-gravity (on the OrbitalPort), and on the Lunar surface at micro-gravity.
Clean Energy & Climate Action
TSI is building the world's largest and most cost-efficient clean energy systems, which will ultimately generate terawatts of (solar) power - on its orbital rings in ultra-low earth orbit. The generated energy will be distributed back to Earth through cables along 100 kilometer tall space elevators, and/or through wireless beams.
In cooperation with certain nations and institutions, TSI will invest in solar shading infrastructure as part of its orbital infrastructure.
Earth Safety and Security
In cooperation with international governments, TSI will be constructing an asteroid and space debris spotting system across all orbital rings OrbitalLoop systems. Depending on international agreements, an Earth-defense system could be installed.
International cooperation and joint ventures
TSI's projects' size and scopes call for continued cooperation between nations, institutions, space agencies, corporations, and even entrepreneurs and researchers.
