Imstar Aerospace is one of the largest producers of aerospace fighters in the Free Worlds League.


Imstar's extensive expertise in zero-G construction, along with their extensive facilities around Atreus, made them a logical-if unexpected-choice for the Agamemnon WarShip project. Using experience imported from Illium Shipyards, the Agamemnon project was a complete success.[1] The Agamemnon production line at Atreus was shut down in the wake of the Jihad as the Ionus produced parts stopped arriving.[2]

In the wake of the Jihad Imstar Aerospace was lucky to have little factory damage to rebuild, but found itself under pressure to convert one of the Cheetah production lines located within the Marik Commonwealth to the production of Eagle fighters.[3]

The company introduced the Red Kite VTOL in 3093. It quickly became a favorite of the Marik-Stewart Commonwealth. Imstar had to open a second production line to keep up with demand.[4]


The CEO in 3067 is Sriparna Antoniou.[1]


Imstar Aerospace has manufacturing centers on the following planets:[5][6]


During the Jihad the Amity line lost a third of its employees, but by 3079 it was operating at 80% of its maximum output.[7]
