Trident Defense calls on the United States to invest in the military-space industry of Ukraine


Ukraine expects closer cooperation with the United States in the field of arms production and the space industry. Now Trident Defense is looking for American partners to create new projects in the defense sector.


First, let's talk a little about Trident Defense itself. This company was founded by Maxim Polyakov, an investment company Noosphere Ventures, located in the USA, in the state of California and working in the field of information technology. Polyakov’s company has branches in 16 countries and more than 5500 employees, most of whom work in Ukrainian divisions.

Trident Defense is the Ukrainian division of the company, which is located in the Dnieper (former Dnepropetrovsk) - the center of the defense and high-tech industry, known since Soviet times. Maxim Polyakov created this company to attract American and international investment in the Ukrainian space industry, which, in his opinion, has very serious prospects. Maxim Polyakov himself is called the Ukrainian Ilon Mask. Such a comparison has a right to exist, if only because Polyakov, like Musk, uses the help of the American administration.

As you know, Ukraine is still actively using the Soviet foundation, which it inherited from the times hated by the modern Kiev regime. This is the industrial and scientific infrastructure in large urban centers, and the educational system, especially the technical one, which has not yet been completely destroyed by post-Soviet westernization.

The presence of qualified personnel who are ready to work for much less money than American or European specialists with the same level of training makes Ukrainian defense enterprises profitable partners for American companies. The same space industry in the Soviet era was at a very high level in the Ukrainian SSR and even now the traditions of the space industry school founded in the Soviet era have not yet completely gone.

Now Ukraine is increasingly trying to make a name for itself in the global arms market. And she pretty much succeeds. At least in the register of exporters weapons Ukraine is in 14th place. But it is one thing to sell off old Soviet-made military equipment and quite another to introduce innovative technologies, and even make them attractive to foreign buyers. Trident Defense is just working to begin the production of American weapons on the Ukrainian subcontract. At the same time, the company will provide its technical capabilities and trained personnel, and the United States - technology and financing.

Project managers hope it will be commercially successful. At least in the space sector, Firefly Ukraine is already quite successfully operating - the "daughter" of the Texas-based Firefly Aerospace. For the United States, investment in the Ukrainian military industry is valuable not only in terms of financial returns, but also as a way to further extend and deepen its influence in Ukraine.

Now representatives of Trident Defense are literally inviting American companies to cooperate with them, promising extremely favorable conditions in the event of production opening on Ukrainian territory. At the same time, the company emphasizes that it considers Ukraine as a large and promising American military partner in the region. Therefore, investors should be calm: in the foreseeable future, the United States will continue to invest heavily in the Ukrainian defense sector.

      More likely no than yes. US companies will not invest is not clear what. If only a European country invests on the Russophobian wave, but the same is not a fact ...

    Rumors about the "death" of the space industry in Ukraine are greatly exaggerated.

      It was created in 10 years, it existed for 35 years, and the Ukrainian people are in a state of stagnation / collapse for 29 years - of course, “everything is exaggerated” !!! There is still something to dig, I understand you correctly? wassat And the specialists of the "large" for 3 decades from the "zero" brought up, and new equipment over the decades, non-stop buying. What kind of death? Continuous perspective !!!! laughing laughing laughing

      Call the Ukrainian cosmodrome. Or maybe there is money to build it? Listen, well, let them launch their “Lybid” first, he is already sick of wallowing on Baikonur! By the way, this "first Ukrainian satellite" ... Canada built, and not "rumors of death", which are exaggerated - why can't they even weaken the communication satellite?

      It is more logical to cooperate with Ethiopia

    Trident defense
    The Trident of Defense ...
    This is from her site.

    Trident defenseis a company established by Noosphere ventures with a mission to ensure the success of Ukraine through defense investment and security cooperation with the United States, NATO and the EU.
    Company Noosphere venturesbased in Silicon Valley, manages a global portfolio of companies with offices in 16 countries and 5500 employees, 5 of whom work in Ukraine.

    That is, the remaining 15 countries account for 500 employees, taking into account the fact that of the five hundred, the main part is clearly located in the USA, as the country where its headquarters are located, the remaining 14 countries do not account for a lot of people, apparently just sales offices ...
    Maxim Polyakov

    This is from their website:
    Dr. Maxim Polyakov is an Entrepreneur and philanthropist with over 15 years of experience in venture financing and business management. Since 2015, having launched more than 50 globally recognized Internet companies and successfully conducted an IPO, he has focused on space and engineering projects. He founded the Firefly Aerospace company, which manufactures small and medium-sized launch vehicles, as well as EOS DA is a company that analyzes the sensory data of the earth from satellites. In connection with the escalation of the conflict in eastern Ukraine, Dr. Poles directed part of their attention to the development of initiatives aimed at supporting security. In 2016, the Noosphere Association, co-founded by Dr. Max Polyakov, welcomes mypol, the emergency warning software package, and ArtOS, the artillery fire control system developed at the noosphere Engineering School.
    It turns out he can supply satellite images with their analysis of the APU.

      After reading the information from the site, I would not have entrusted this doctor with 100 rubles in management.
      Even with Mavrodi, the lure was more convincing. fellow

    And how many of these frames are left? Some retired, others left for Russia, still others scattered around the world. The last crushing blow to Yuzhmash was delivered by Oleg Urussky, a native of the Ternopil region. Urussky’s arrival at the Goskosmos is compared to the invasion of Mamaia in Kiev: more or less qualified specialists came under lustration, they were replaced by zapadents who did not have the slightest idea about space and rocketry. The rout was complete and overwhelming. Even the deputies from the Poroshenko faction in the parliament raised a howl. Six months later, he was fired, and instead a native of Ivano-Frankivsk region, a graduate of the Lviv Commercial Academy Lyubomir Sabadosh, was appointed. Prior to this, the “patriot” managed to work as a tax inspector, to steer in some small LLC, this already finished off the enterprise to the edge.

    Ukraine counts on closer cooperation with the United States in the field of arms production and the space industry

    Chernozem alone was left for sale and Russophobia, due to this they live
    And Gas steal godlessly ..
    But after the collapse of the USSR there is such a legacy left and the potential .. And where is ALL this, "brothers" ..?
    Throughout the Union, technology and a lot of money were uploaded to you .. Although the province of the RSFR lived modestly, riding for you sausage, etc. (although meat processing plants and other state-owned enterprises in our territory were)
    Everyone pumped out like pumps .. I remember all this! soldier

    Perhaps, why not?
    If democracy demands, then the United States has never spared to print new candy wrappers for costs, which would weaken (in the mind - bleed) Russia. Moreover, it is always cheaper than climbing on our own. And Ukraine’s “investments”, anyway, IF it receives them, it will receive “a good percentage”. The grandchildren of the grandchildren of today's Ukrainians will also be given. Uncle Sam, once a philanthropist, do not forget history, including newest.
    Moreover, the United States was always ready to fight to the last soldier (Ukrainian, European, etc.) for their benefit and interests.
    In any case, experience and best practices will be useful to them, especially free ones. hi

    The author, I see, is still that connoisseur.
