A Fall Full of Fun

A Fall Full of Fun

September and October has had OAI moving and shaking before the snow comes! OAI has been busy traveling around Denver and the world showing off our ACORN-R modeling and simulation system and forging new connections in and outside of the industry. Read all about our adventures: 

OAI On The Street and Across the Globe

September had OAI busy jumping from event to event. OAI was invited to Inkmonstr's '"Meet Your Maker" Event, a local print and design shop that was selected as one of this year's Colorado Companies To Watch (CCTW) Winners! Being a previous winner in 2015, OAI was able to support the new Alumni and demonstrate OAI's ACORN-R product line at the event. "Events like these allow us to get out in the community and connect with everyday people to tell them more about what's going on in the news related to space and how we fit into the aerospace industry", Alex Dunn, OAI Aerospace Engineer.

On top of the local engagement, OAI also made it across the globe to Adelaide, Australia for the 68th International Astronautical Congress (IAC). Being 'down-under' for a week allowed OAI to network with other international organizations and potential partners to identify how OAI can continue to partner globally to service the domestic and international marketplaces. OAI had a great time exploring and enjoying the local atmosphere and hopes to attend many more IAC's!

Stan's "Skin-in-the-Game"

For anyone who has worked with Stanley O. Kennedy, Jr., they know how much he emphasizes every team member being engaged and contributing to the success of the group. It often comes in the phrase, "I want everyone to have 'Skin-in-the-Game'". Well as of September, 'Skin-in-the-game' took on a whole new literal meaning with Stan getting the company logo as a tattoo.

Colorado Comapnies To Watch (CCTW) Alumni Golf  Outing Cancelled

Living and working in Colroado provides many benefits to our employees and lifestyle in the Mile-High City. Being able to go golfing in the morning, skiing in the afternoon, and golfing at night only happens in a few places on Earth, Colorado being one of them. While this climate is often supportive of our plans, October 9th, the day of the CCTW Aluni Golf Tournament, was not.

OAI was selected to serve as the CCTW Alumni Champion and planned a Golf Outing for CCTW Company Alumni. Set at the beautiful Perry Park County Club, OAI was set to have a great outing when the weather decided to turn sour. The first 2018 winter snow hit Denver on October 9th and caused OAI to cancel the event until next year. For all who signed up to support this event, we thank you and apologize for the inconvenience.

We look forward to next season when the weather, fingers-crossed, will cooperate.
