Industrial Heuristics was responsible for the development of arxeums, giant mobile educational facilities that were dedicated to the study of war sciences. The company was also given permission to carry out recruitment operations within the Daimanate, a Sith territory controlled by the Human Sith Lord Daiman.
In 1032 BBY, Daiman made a deal with Bactra to acquire an arxeum of his own. In exchange for safe passage to strike at Vellas Pavo, Bactra oversaw the delivery of the arxeum to Gazzari. After a battle there, Daiman and his brother Odion captured Bactra's holdings, on the orders of their grandmother, Vilia Calimondra. Calimondra bequeathed control of Industrial Heuristics to Daiman and forced Odion, who had captured Jutrand, Bactra's former capital, to allow the company to withdraw from the world.
