Welcome to Interstellar Foundational Exploration

INFEX is an organisation dedicated to providing as much value to the public as possible. We achieve this through projects such as our comprehensive POI mapping effort Project Axi, and our navigational program suite, Jetstream.



History

Active Projects

Projects are INFEX’s primary channel through which it provides value to the community.

Project Axi

Aim

To comprehensively map all Points Of Interest, and collate them for easy viewing by the public.

Status

  • [COMPLETED] All HUD-marked bases and outposts have been logged
  • [IN PROGRESS] 8 shipwrecks have been logged; currently in the process of confirming if there are any more
  • [IN PROGRESS] 3 unmarked bases or outposts have been logged and at least 1 undiscovered base has been confirmed; currently in the process of locating them
  • [PLANNED] Visual guides for important locations such as the drug lab and the Javelin wreck are planned

Project Jetstream

Aim

To create a suite of navigational applications to make it easy for the public to get to specific locations as fast as possible. Axi should plug into Jetstream and there should be systems in place to allow for easy navigation to any Axi documented location.

Status

  • [COMPLETED] A calculator to determine a flight path to any location on a planetary body through triangulation of Orbital Markers has been completed
  • [IN PROGRESS] Axi integration is in progress
  • [PLANNED] A calculator to use HUD-marked bases and outposts for triangulation is planned
  • [PLANNED] An easy to navigate interface for Axi data is planned
  • [PLANNED] A method of entering data into Axi through Jetstream is planned

Future Projects

There is currently one planned project.

Ship Performance Database

This project will test ships for performance statistics and publish them in an easily accessible format.

Examples of statistics that will be tested are:

  • Acceleration time from 0m/s to max SCU or AFB speed, with variables such as use of boost, space/atmosphere, and using decoupled mode to make use of the main thrusters
  • Deceleration time from max SCU or AFB speed to 0m/s, with variables such as use of boost, space/atmosphere, and using decoupled mode to make use of the main thrusters
  • Time to turn 360° in all three axis

Activities

INFEX specialises in a number of activities in the Verse.

  • Exploration
  • Scouting
  • Prospecting
  • Colonisation
