Mile-High Laboratories

This organization was first established to work in high energy particle physics. Early research projects, however, discovered a method of interdimensional travel that the company was restructured to take advantage of.

For awhile the company formed its own exploration team of paranormals to explore the interdimensional worlds their gates opened up, but several bad experiences and the loss of several of their explorers in a dark world that "seemed like something out of H.P. Lovecraft" caused them to close down their exploration teams. At the time they stopped their explorations, they had found nothing commercially usable and also discovered that they could not control the destinations of their gates to any appreciable degree. They had no idea where they were going and no way of being sure they would return to the same place with the same settings.

Since then, the company has gone on to other endeavors, but under government contract they have developed the science of detecting and tracing interdimensional rifts to a high degree. Several satellites include their sensors as a sideline payload. They boast that they can detect any dimensional rift that appears on earth and most in orbit, as well.
