Development

Our core values are the fundamental characteristics of who we are and how we operate.  Intuitive Machines effectively blends dedication, integrity, respect, and technical excellence to create an organization that is an integral partner with our customers. We execute on our commitments, bring solutions forward, and are continually learning to bring solutions to the challenges facing our customers.

Autonomous Systems have the potential to affect every part of life, business, industry, and education, and the implications are huge across the board.

With this in mind, we created Intuitive Machines, a company constructed to provide robust, available, reliable and safe autonomous system solutions. We believe there are opportunities to apply human spaceflight methodologies and principles that enable low costs solutions while at the same time managing the highest complexity and safety levels for autonomous systems.

 

Intuitive Machines was formed from deep practical experience in large complex space systems development.  The people of Intuitive Machines blend deep technical knowledge with practices honed over 40 years of human spaceflight; practices in risk-based decision-making, redundancy management, fault tolerance and isolation, safety, reliability, maintainability, verification testing, and operations.

Dedication

We are dedicated to the mission of our partners. Individual success is secondary to mission success. Personal sacrifice is the norm, and everything we do carries an inherent sense of urgency.

Excellence

We value the freedom and the responsibility to pursue technical truth and follow the evidence to its conclusion. We value respectful dissent as an expression of individual knowledge and as a means for improving the integrity of our engineering decisions.

Respect

We respect the inherent dignity and worth of every person. We respect the diversity of our workforce as an essential component of our teamwork and mission success.

Integrity

We are committed to maintaining an environment of trust built upon honesty, respect, and candor. We build trust through ethical conduct as individuals and as a company.
