Koninklijke Philips N.V.

  • Earth Head Office: Nieuw Amsterdam, Netherlands, European Community (UEG)
  • Extrasolar Head Office: Space Station Equality, Robotech Factory Satellite
  • Established: 1891
  • Status: Ongoing concern
  • Founder: Gerard and Anton Philips

Koninklijke Philips N.V. (Dutch for Royal Philips, commonly shortened to PHILIPS) is a Dutch multinational conglomerate corporation that was founded in Eindhoven in 1891. Since 2014, it has been mostly headquartered in Nieuw Amsterdam, as well as its extrasolar office on Space Station Equality. Philips is one of the largest electronics companies in human controlled space and is currently focused in the area of military avionics, with significant operations in the consumer electronics sector.

Landmark products include the “AllView” series of multi-band camera systems, which, in one form or another, have been installed on almost every human made Veritech, Battloid and aerospace fighter since they introduced it for use on the VF/A-6 Alpha. In the commercial sector, Philips is best known for their CDI series of video game consoles. The CDI 910 started a gaming revolution when it was introduced in 1990 and has continued to be a market leader well into the 21st century. The company also produced several arcade based games throughout its history, the most successful one being the three dimensional Veritech combat simulator “Battroid Attack!”

Philips was also the first human company to win a contract from a non-human military, when the Karbarrans made a major purchase of the latest AllView for their aerospace fighters. Philips has also had success in the Tiresian market with their latest CDI-X4 game consoles and other consumer electronics. Today, Philips has operations on Earth, all the major human colonies, Space Station Equality and Tirol.

The Boeing Company

  • Earth Head Office: Portland, Oregon, United States (closed)
  • Extrasolar Head Office: Space Station Equality, Robotech Factory Satellite
  • Established: 1916 (as Pacific Aero Products Co.)
  • Status: Ongoing concern
  • Founder: William E. Boeing

The Boeing Company is a Space Station Equality based corporation that designs, manufactures, and sells missiles and avionics for the United Earth Expeditionary Force (UEEF). Prior to the First Robotech War, Boeing was among the largest global aerospace manufacturers, controlling approximately half of the world’s commercial airliner market. After the Zentraedi “Rain of Death”, all of Boeing’s manufacturing facilities on the planet were destroyed. The sole remaining company asset was a small engineering team located on the SDF-1, who were responsible for the integration program on the HMM-01 Starburst missile, which was being used on the Super Valkyrie.

Clint Jackson, the site manager of the team, was the controlling share holder after the war. (His stake before the war was a mere $35,000 worth of stock options that he received as part of the sign-on bonus which lured him away from Union Carbide.) He reestablished the corporate headquarters in New Macross after the SDF-1 returned to Earth, later moving the headquarters to Portland Oregon after the destruction of the SDFs 1 and 2. Boeing continued to build the Starburst missile at the SDF-1 manufacturing facility, until the operation was moved to the Robotech Factory Satellite (Space Station Equality). As production on the Starburst was winding down, Boeing was at risk of loosing its sole remaining product line. The company was saved when they submitted an unsolicited bid for a free-fall bomb that could be used in both air and space (the SDBU-series of bombs). This contract kept the company solvent and continues to be one of Boeing’s biggest revenue producers.

After the end of the Third Robotech War, Boeing attempted to move back into the commercial aviation industry, but thus far has not managed to have any success. They continue to be producer of missiles and guidance systems, as well as an engineering subcontractor for the big defense contractors.
