Rander Communications Equipment Incorporated is a military and civilian electronics manufacturer within Federated Suns.[1]

Company ProfileEdit

New Avalon Stock & Commodities Symbol: RaCom

Home Office: Jacksonville, Schedar

President/CEO: Count Ivanalo Tythis (Circa 3025)[2], Count Brilla DeFalco (Circa 3067)[3]


Rander Communications has been providing military communications equipment to the Federated Suns for the past 500 years. Originally owned by the Rander family when it was a subsidiary of a larger Star League era company, the Tythis family had assumed ownership of the firm by 3025. By 3067, that ownership has transferred to the DeFalco family. The DeFalcos took control of the company after the Tythis family was replaced by Archon Katherine Steiner-Davion during the FedCom Civil War. The Lyran appointees who ran the company until 3067 were more interested in looting the company's coffers than producing quality goods and this nearly destroyed the firm.[3]

No matter the lineage of the family, all of the owners of the company have worked hard to ensure the companies continued survival through the Succession Wars. To that end, the main manufacturing plant on Schedar has been built completely underground while a permanent force of aerospace fighters maintains watch.

While primarily a military contractor, Rander does have a large civilian branch that makes electronics for the public.[4] Products for the civilian market are released under the Tythis Computers and Electronics brand name.[3]
