First Mode helps companies, governments, and individuals tackle the problems that matter in the most extreme environments no matter what—or where—they might be.
Leave no stone unturned. First Mode is well-versed in (but does not rely upon) conventional methodology. We thoroughly interrogate the articulated problem in order to understand not only the present issue, but also the present opportunities.
Concept & architecture
Our diverse teams of engineers, designers, and scientists work in a highly-collaborative environment to design a solution that satisfies all requirements. With an integrated approach from beginning to end, we move seamlessly from design to prototyping.
Detailed design & analysis
With the solution in hand, we set about making it come to life. We have decades of experience integrating large-scale, complex systems on Earth and beyond. Through rigorous testing, we verify performance safety for mission-critical systems.
