Mr. Black,

I have incorporated a new privately held company "IronStar Industries". I will be using my tech out in the field and gathering data on effectiveness and using this data to ascertain if any of this tech can be modified for public consumption. This is a "slim" company which will not negatively impact my available time with our team. If the investors of Nightwatch are interested in looking at a prospectus for IronStar Industries, I would be more than happy to provide them with that information.

For your information, I have completed trials of "Oddball" Data retrival units. Functionality is well within operating parameters. Marketing campaign to target local municipalities is going underway. Oddballs should prove useful for firefighters, law enforcement, and military operations.

Unless you have any objections, I will be deploying hired agents to schedule and discuss benefits of these products to these market zones. Be assured that independent oddballs will in no way interact with any tech that The Citadel is employing. These will be autonomous units to the individual municipalities.

If you have any questions, please email me.

Thank you.

F. Cornelius Pierce.

As long as it doesn't interfere with the normal team operations, that's fine. I'm not so certain that I want technology developed specifically for use here to be publically accessable however.

Well the "public" oddballs will certainly not have all of the capabilities that I am employing on our missions. For cost sake alone, it wouldn't be feasible.

Also, only the three main market sectors would be solicited: Law enforcement, military, and emergency workers. Think of the ability to send in a probe to find a civilian trapped under rubble in the event of an earthquake for example.

That's fine, Oddball, but keep in mind that most police and fire stations don't have a large spending budget for new technologies.Most of them still use analog cellular modems in their vehicals. If they had the kind of budget needed to purchase these kinds of things, in my experience they are more likely to go with proven technologies than the cutting edge.

Certainly a prospecting team would be needed to gather up that sort of information. Find out what kind of budget they have for deployment of new IT, new defenses. I look at it as an investment into the safety of their staff and the people they are trying to rescue, and less as an IT expenditure.

Of course, I'm biased.

I'm also open to the idea of a free assessment period of say 12 months so that the technology becomes vital to their operations.
