The purpose of this article isn't investment advice. It isn't to sell a product. However, it is to sell a vision. I am writing about my startup known as Stark Drones that is working on some quite innovative technologies.

In the age of copycat products and Silicon Valley bugs, comes some startups wanting to build truly disruptive technologies.

Stark Drones is an emerging company that participates in sensory networks, UART communications, and aviation design concepts. We are planning to build one of the most efficient aeronautical vehicles ever created to bring a new age to space exploration and transportation.

Stark Drones introduces "Innovation as a Service" and works on various innovations centered around high performance, theoretical and experimental computing.

Outside of this, it contributes to various fields and works on a variety of design concepts and complex engineering projects.

Think of it as a competitor to companies like, "X, the Moonshot Factory", or even firms like IDEO.

Lots of Stark Drones technology was built in a storage unit, then tight markerspaces, then mini-labs, and all three times it was freezing cold.

Stark Drones in the very beginning was very DIY.

When a young guy like myself has a vision and not much resources, pursuing that vision can grow into something much bigger.

Even prior to the founding of Stark Drones, I have built various technological predecessors and backbones for lots of its research.

Even at the time, I was trying to experiment w/ internet balloons and signal latency, it was closer to Ben Franklin running with a kite.

Some of my most impressive experiments were done w/ alot of patience, human intuition, and just being handy.

In the end, I think so far it has paid off.

When I wanted to heat and cool certain epoxies for device enclosures, I didn't even have an epoxy heater or resin drier.

That process in itself had to be very makeshift and lead to time wasted, frustration, and a motivation to grow further.

I personally feel like if I may have been given access to expensive tools, a high-end lab, and a giant space upfront, I wouldn't have been forced to innovate as much.

Stark Drones was also granted the opportunity to speak at Maker Faire multiple times, and part of what I learned grew from sharing my experiences and seeing what others were doing.

Some things ended up not going great, and some things took time to see fruition.

One of my more impressive projects (besides experimenting w/ underwater wireless networks), are mobile cubesat systems.

I bought a basic CNC enclosure from eBay, mini-solar panels, and soldered my very own board given what I knew about electrical engineering.

Now at this time period, I am working on things that go well beyond the early DIY days. These are things that go beyond the travel by car 4 or 5 hours days.

These are things that go beyond trying to open a lock for a freezing cold storage unit during winter to work on something.

Currently, Stark Drones has done more than just neat hardware projects.

We have overseen the development of Lonero, created a decentralized-internet SDK downloaded by 100s of thousands of developers for offline-networking capabilities, and contributed to various other innovations that might one day create new fields.

Stark Drones is focused on being an industry player in three different worlds: Telecommunications, High-Performance Computing, and Post-Classical (Quantum) Computing.

The research that Stark Drones has already contributed to and the technologies we have are starting to become serious competition to large players in the industry and other startups.

Stark Drones as a 3-year-old company went from DIY projects in storage units to wanting to work with companies to build high-performance computing labs.

Not only this, but if you consider the other technologies Stark Drones is working on such as compressed air energy storage or even aeronautical design concepts, it is poised to potentially become an industry conglomerate itself.
