That makes sense, and yes I unfortunately know those kinds of vultures through some friends that worked in defence industry. I also like their singular focus, rather than a scatter gun approach to try to get funding, and hopefully they'll be successful. A mini submarine that could be launched from a single truck is a very interesting concept. It was just weird being able to find CEO's deviantart page easier than information about his projectsDatum mainly has one single project and it is to make a multi-purpose manned mini submarine (And i find their goals highly suitable, realizable and achievable by a start-up of given size). However, they were not able to acquire a fund to accomplish this earlier, the CEO has had the dream for a decade and worked on conceptual design(s), maturing over the time with his colleagues and on his own nearly by self-funding. The company is more or less about the founder - CEO and few colleagues of him. He preferred to keep a low profile since he has got the project and funds, as you might know why, If you are living in TR and got such a fund, there would be a herd of vultures trying to rip off the budget (for no reason they would place obstacles and then ask for some -help- to ease the burden of passing through). I believe, after accomplish certain goals and assuring his position in 'capability' to the higher ups, the company will have more information in the website and continue to work on other designs.
