Deep range transmitter
Deep Range Transmitter
An advanced piece of pre-War technology, the deep range transmitter was developed by ArcJet Systems for the Mars Shot Project. It is a highly advanced radio communications system designed to enable interplanetary communications. Although preliminary work was completed, culminating in the creation of a working unit, a scientist reassigned away from XMB fuel mixture work managed to boost its communications range by 70% inside three weeks, allowing the USSA's ship to ping a signal back and forth within ten minutes, while eventually managing to reduce the unit's size by half to match the target volume.
