SMG has a different business model than you have probably done business with in the past.
We have found that in the STEM Contracting, Consulting, R&D, Systems Integration, Training business our model works best for us and for our clients.
Our clients tell us about their most important problems.
We discuss those problems in-house, and with our colleagues and associates to see if we can put a team together to solve any of those problems.
The problems we believe that we can solve are discussed further with our clients including project management, personnel, timelines, and budgets – direct expenses, time & materials.
We do not try to duplicate the expertise of our clients.
We include their industry specific expertise in our team.
Our expertise is outlined in this profile.
SMG has been in the STEM general contracting, consulting, education, and R&D business for 34+ years.
More specifically, SMG wants to continue to make important contributions to:
- The Transition to Earth 3.0 – Sustainable Earth based on sustainability, self-sufficiency, respect for and preservation of our priceless biosphere | environment for all future generations, efficient use of all resources including sustainable renewable energy; Earth 2.0 – Technological Earth; Earth 1.0 – Natural Earth
- | Business | Factory | Industry | Laboratory | Office | – Automation
- | Test & Measurement | Electronics | Virtual Instrumentation |
- Represents a fundamental shift from traditional hardware centered dedicated systems to software centered generic portable modular PC based systems which take advantage of the computational, display, productivity, and connectivity capabilities of today’s computers.
- Is dramatically changing the paradigm in test and measurement, automation, and control by driving down costs and saving time without sacrificing performance.
Our clients hire us because they do not have our expertise and problem solving skills in-house.
They prefer to hire the needed expertise on a project by project basis.
The following is a summary of the business of SMG including:
| Assets | Personnel Operations | Disciplines | Expertise | Products Services | Clients | Projects | Industries | Business Model |
SMG has a number of exciting, challenging, and innovative multi-million$ projects in aerospace, electronics & instrumentation, sustainability, telecommunications that are currently seeking angel financing.
SMG aerospace assets are conservatively valued at 50-100 million$.
SMG sustainability assets are conservatively valued at 50-100 million$.
SMG also has assets in computer based home entertainment, GPS based mineral exploration, energy systems analysis and optimization, and telecommunications worth as much or more than the aerospace & sustainability assets.
The IP assets are valued at 10% of projected gross sales.
Enterprise shares are not included in this valuation.
With the right strategic partner(s), the aerospace assets have the potential to grow a billion$ ATE business with a 500+ million$ aerospace ATE division with technology that will save the commercial airline industry 8-10 billion$ per year (3-5%) in fuel costs, 3-5% in upper atmospheric pollution costs, and as yet undetermined operational & insurance costs.
A Business Plan is available to seriously interested parties.
The sustainability assets are IP assets.
They need to be moved to enterprises that can exploit their value to the maximum.
The current valuation is a royalty advance of 10% of gross sales based on the assets.
