Valkore is something of an oddity in the supercorporate world, combining the high-minded research and cyberspace technology of Absolon with more mundane industrial holdings and security sector work. Comparisons are often drawn to Absolon, given that Valkore is the only other Serican supercorporation the government has permitted to experiment with artificial consciousness. This lends Valkore a general mystique far above their relatively humble net worth and minimal brand presence.
Valkore also produces structural components and armor for everything from buildings to ships, an extensive library of software, and a number of machining and fabrication tools. Outside of Artificial Intelligence work, their primary research focus tends to be on Practical Applications, and a number of laboratories exist to test new theories in miniaturization and less expensive production of otherwise prohibitively difficult technologies. The Interloper’s High-Beta Dipolar Deuterium Fusion Plant and much of its optional equipment are products of this research.
