Industrial Arms and Armor
IAA's leader is obsessed with new frontiers, and often says "we do science for the sake of science, not for the money that comes from it. Though, that certainly does help." The groups leader, a man by the name of Frin Gordon, simply called Captain due to being ex-military, builds weapons and armored vehicles for the US government, as well as civilians, simply to fund his research. The current project? Reaching space in the new world.
"Captain" Frin Gordon:
He grew up in a small town in Texas called Odessa, and when his father was shipped off for WWI, became obsessed with the military. By the time his father got home, Frin had already begun preparing himself to join the Navy. During his physical training, he took on the philosophy that a well honed body, needed a well honed mind. He started to research, and was drawn to astrophysics, a pretty much fledgling field at the time, and it became a love that never left him. Shortly after he graduated college, he joined the Navy. Then WWII hit, he was a Pear Harbor survivor, and had become a Captain by this point. He elected a less refined version of the plan that the US used to advance on the Japanese. Shortly after watching the atom bombs get dropped, he was injured by a Japanese infiltrator and was given a honorable discharge. Shortly after, he used the money he had saved to found the IAA, and began work on supplying the military during their battles against Germany, not long after D-Day his first weapons made it to the battlefield. Finding it profatable, he secured government grants for new factories and materials, and contunied to make weapons for them. Not long after WWII had ended, he started selling to the public, and that was when he got the money to found the IASR, Industrial Arms and Armour Research. Not long after the portal had been opened, he started to get his scientists to work on finding a way to reach the moon, and, as the Cold War was no doubt underway at this point, sell the designs to the US to beat the Russians. From there, he got the idea to test it in the new world first.
IAAR Squad Alpha
While a small group, the IAA is ready to send more people to increase its size as they expand. With the IAA based in Texas, many of these people are proud Texans, and those who aren't researchers, are hard workers. The goal of the group is to make the new world into a new industrial base, as well as test space flight, and other new technologies. Because of the focus of the IAA, they would be insane if they didn't train some troops to project into the world.
