||A targeting methodology that employs a dedicated
bio-computer system and friend-or-foe criteria to appraise the best
target using algorithms that consider opportunity, chance of
damage, and mission strategy. Will constantly reappraise their
target and tactics and may redirect to a target of opportunity
mid-flight. Wildfire is a common term for such missiles as they can
be fired into the fray and will sort out the best target based on
availability, opportunity, and strategy.
||A warhead designed to
generate a massive electromagnetic pulse intended to damage or
temporarily confuse enemy electronics, communications, or sensors. It includes a supply of electron-rich particles
and either a direct oscillating current-source or
magnetic field generator to induce the same, as well as a nicely
sized nuclear charge to produce the high-energy gamma rays that
start the whole effect going. Needs to be exploded close to the
target due to the rapid dissolution of the needed particles in
||One of the cheapest, most prevalent missiles
available. Mass-produced and distributed by Azatlath Advanced
Construction, the Dart is a small, cheap, high-yield antimatter
missile that has no target recognition or guidance. Often fired in
||A style of missile that is generally used against
capitol ships, stations, and astral bodies. They are characterized
by massive damage potential, relatively slow speed, and little or
no targeting or course correction capability.
||A delivery system by Azatlath Advanced Construction,
the JetStream fires a steady stream of mildly modified Dart
missiles. The missiles have basic communications equipment and mild
course correction capability so each missile corrects the flight
path of the next, improving the accuracy of each subsequent
missile. In a similar product, the IDC has developed the
Tracer delivery system.
Targeting connects the
missile's tracking systems directly through the operator's
neuralink so he is able to guide the missile by thought. Opera is a common brand
||Optic lock uses optical
or other light spectra, such as UV, to acquire, recognize, and track
a target. "Spectra" is a common brand-name.
||A detonation system based on bio-computer driven friend-or-foe
algorithms. Will detonate the missile's warhead when a given set
of circumstances are met, generally based on closeness to a
certain target or target type.
||A delivery methodology
which uses generally smaller, lower yield weapons with little
tracking capability. The swarm missiles are fired in large numbers in the hopes of hitting something and doing some
||High-duration image recognition technology.
||The operator picks a target and
the missile will
track it based a number of criteria which may include the target's
x-ray spectrum, sensor and communications emissions, or radiation
