AeON

The Aerospace Operating Node is a privatized public works project from the early days of FTL travel. They were an open-source navigation program that laid the groundwork for two things. 1) standardized FTL protocols galaxy-wide, and 2) the flicker network before being purchased by the Lansarbor computing collective in 2141. They were based in what was then still the Lansing Manufacturing Subsector, and is now the Chitroit Spaceport. All ships run some form of the AeON system, and many of the SuperCities use it as well. AeON allows travel without error through 75-85% of charted space and communication in roughly a quarter of that space. The errors allowed for are almost entirely human in nature, as the program is not allowed to make executive piloting decisions. Their AI is excellent in its assistance capacities but has had its assertion blunted to avoid AeON liability. The communication is expensive to fuel and maintain, so it has been a hard market to make profitable.

The company has a remarkably simple business plan, having grown out of the non-profit sector and exploded onto the market as their proximity to The Pit put them in almost every FTL engine manufactured. They treat their employees marginally well, very little 0-hour work and some free benefits have made their jobs highly sought after. Their secondary headquarters is in Tokyo, and their famed internal transit system can get you there within a matter of hours.
