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.


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.


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.


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.

Our core values are the fundamental characteristics of who we are and how we operate.  Intuitive Machines effectively blends dedication, integrity, respect, teamwork, and technical excellence to create an organization that is an integral partner that executes on their commitments, rings solutions forward, and continually learns to meet the challenges facing the human race.
