Anduril Industries is a different kind of defense technology company. Anduril builds creative cost-effective technology that aids those who serve on the front lines defending the nation and its interests. The company’s approach is to innovate fast, with the best talent, funding their own product development, and only sell it when it’s ready. Anduril’s core technology includes artificial intelligence, autonomous systems, sensor fusion and the application at the front lines of operations. They focus on applying their technology to defense, law enforcement and the securing of critical infrastructure.
Founded by Palmer Luckey, who previously founded and sold Oculus to Facebook for $2 billion, and joined by co-founders Brian Schimpf, Trae Stephens, and Matt Grimm, who come from senior positions at Palantir, and Joe Chen, who previously was product lead at Oculus, Anduril’s team has grown into a 100+ person organization with offices both in Orange County, CA, and Washington, D.C.
Earlier this summer, Anduril moved into its brand new 155,000 square foot corporate headquarters, located in Irvine at 2722 Michelson.
Anduril’s move into their new home marked the conclusion of over a year-long process of securing the perfect building to support their growing team of technologists, and the final space is one of the most cutting-edge and innovative workspaces in the region.
Reportedly the largest office lease signed in 2018 countywide, a project of this scale requires a massive amount of strategy, design and coordination, which Hughes Marino was proud to lead.
