Affas is a silicone analog of hydrocarbon petrochemicals.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

It is a naturally occurring mixture of various types of hydrosilicones and requires processing to render into useful products. Affas is dark red, purple, or black in color; it is of thick, viscous consistency. The substance is heavier than liquid sulfur. It is estimated that lubricants made from the hydrosilicones will increase the efficiency of high-temperature engines by approximately 12%. It can also be used to create a silicone-based plastic that shows remarkable resistance to heat and acid.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The largest known natural source of Affas is the planet Eshaar (Far Frontiers 1826).

An Axe is a heavy bladed tool used to shape, split and cut wood, harvest timber, and as a weapon. During the TL–1 era the head of the axe is made of metal, usually copper, bronze or iron. The axe handle usually is wood, though for axes designed as weapons, the handle is reinforced or replaced by metal. It is during the TL–1 development era where the design of an axe begins to reflect its intended purpose. There are different axe designs for felling trees, carpentry, and warfare. With the development of firearms at TL–2, the use of the axe as a weapon falls from favor.

The Hand Computer (or handcomp) is a small, powerful multi-function computer that can be used to store and recall basic factual data, perform complex calculations, and control other electronic devices.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Hand computers can be optimized for certain fields of knowledge by the use of modular data clips which can be easily inserted and removed (Cr200 each). Data Clips for particular applications allow characters to use the hand computer to calculate jump parameters, ballistic performance, chemical formulae, etc. The hand computer can be linked to various sensors and allows them to be monitored or controlled from a distance.

The hand computer also serves as a computer terminal when linked to a larger computer (...such as on board a ship).

Most handcomps run on batteries, which allow use for a year or more, can charge from any power source with the proper adapter, or may incorporate small solar cells to provide all the power they need.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

This hoist is a battery-powered motor which drives a reel with 25 meters of cable. It has a hook on one side for attachment to a belt or harness and another hook on the opposite side for the cable. A rocker switch in the handle controls direction and an adjustable clutch controls speed; the reel can also freewheel. Power lasts for about one hour before the batteries need replacing. A hand brake can lock the cable in position and a centrifugal brake keeps the cable from unwinding too rapidly

Keypad Electronic Locks or simply Keypads are similar to combination locks in that a series of numbers or letters must be entered in order to open them.
  • A Lock is a device intended to discourage or prevent theft of valuable goods.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

This lock usually takes the form of a terminal-like keyboard next to a door. Electronic locks depend upon solid state circuitry to arm and disarm them. Most have an automatic locking device in the event of power failure; more expensive versions have their own power sources (either primary or backup). All electronic locks can be set to give selective access (that is to limit access of certain individuals to certain times of day, etc.). It is also possible to connect the locks to a larger building security system to register entry/exit and sound alarms if tampered with.

Selected Lock Types[edit]

  1. Biometric Electronic Lock
  2. Combination Lock
  3. Keypad Electronic Lock
  4. Magnetic Electronic Lock
  5. Metabolic Electronic Lock
  6. Tumbler Lock

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Keypad electronic locks typically come of age in TL:7-9. By the end of the technological epoch, they are so ubiquitous that they can be found on ground cars, domiciles, and throughout a spectrum of consumer goods.

Linear Burning Rope is an explosive device.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Each rope is packaged in 8 metre long coils, with a rope diameter of 3cm; within the vacuum-sealed plastic packs they are further wrapped in a cellophane-like red and yellow-striped covering, which peels off to reveal a bright yellow putty-like substance, akin to plastic explosives. Each package also contains two piezo-electric initiator plugs.

After the roll is removed from the outer packaging, the inner cellophane wrapping must be removed. The putty-like material of the rope is malleable with ease, even in cold temperatures (operating temperature range: 100oK to 285oK). The rope should be moulded to the edge of the surface to be burned through, and tamped to provide as equilateral a triangular cross-section as possible. Each rope is powerful enough to burn through a standard thickness ships hull.

Two initiators are supplied for times when stress is high: It is not uncommon for an initiator to go 'walkies' and having a second initiator to hand is a measure of insurance against stress-induced forgetfulness. One initiator is sufficient to ignite an entire length of Linear Burning Rope; the initiator is pushed into a convenient place in the rope, much like a plastic explosives detonator plug might be. The red and yellow striped tab is peeled off, to reveal a bright red and yellow pull ring. the ring connects to 1mm thick by 30cm long cable leading to a wind-up detonator within the body of the initiator, which then charges a high-charge capacitor, which on reaching full capacity, discharges after five seconds into the rope, which then ignites.

The rope burns extremely brightly (in a similar way to magnesium) and with very high temperature within the material being burned through; surrounding temperatures are high, but not excessively so. It takes about thirty seconds for a standard section of hull metal to be burned through, and the edges of the metal will be exceedingly hot to the touch for about half an hour after burning.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

In much the same way as a linear shaped charge works explosively, the Linear Burning Rope works comparatively slowly and non-explosively for use in confined spaces.

The manufacturer of the rope recommends in the literature that an insulating blanket of some kind be affixed to affected surfaces to prevent burn injuries after penetration (they recommend a product they manufacture, as it happens).

Linear Shaped Charge (LSC) is a v-shaped armoured polymer strip packed with blasting putty. When detonated whilst in contact with a solid object, LSC will cut cleanly through the object, following the principles of the shaped charge theory. LSC is useful for cutting through substances such as plasteel, superdense, and the like. LSC will cut through 50mm of superdense, 750mm of resincrete, 200mm of plate steel, or 150mm of plasteel. It requires detonators and a trigger.

Lock

Imperial Sunburst-Sun-IISS-Traveller.gif

A Lock is a device intended to discourage or prevent theft of valuable goods.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Typically locks are used to secure portals or doorways with chain and a difficult to break or activate locking mechanism (...often with a secret code or combination). However, locks come in a great variety of sizes, shapes, and types from gigantic bank vault locks to the smallest luggage locks. Some are truly imposing and difficult to take apart with explosives or industrial tools while others may be fairly simple and easy to break by hand or manipulator, really more of a visible record that luggage or valuables have been broken into.

Selected Lock Types[edit]

  1. Biometric Electronic Lock
  2. Combination Lock
  3. Keypad Electronic Lock
  4. Magnetic Electronic Lock
  5. Metabolic Electronic Lock
  6. Psychometric Lock
  7. Tumbler Lock

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The first locks are invented almost as early as the first tools. This typically occurs within the TL:1-3 Technological Epoch.

TL:1-3:
The earliest locks tend to be rope or rawhide knots tied in such a way as to preclude untying of the knot except with great effort and much time... The Gordian Knot of Terran fame could only be disabled by cutting it apart with a bladed weapon.

The early knot barriers often develop into wooden pin locks, which consisted of a bolt, a door fixture, and key. Early keys often had dramatically different shapes than more modern conceptions of keys. Lock boxes are often the first choice for storage of valuables.

TL:4-6:
Mechanical locks tend to predominate in this period. They are simple and often very tough to defeat.

TL:7-9:
Growing electronic and microelctronic industries enable a wide variety of new lock technologies, many of which don't mature until later technological epochs.

TL:10-12:
Early Makertech combines with sophisticated electronics to create new, more advanced locks.

TL:13-15:
More sophisticated bio-tech makes new technology locks incredibly difficult to defeat.

The Match is a cutting device.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Briefly, electrical current from the batteries in the unit causes a thermal buildup in the focusing element, using comparatively little energy to create a micro fine point of intense heat. This device is extremely energy efficient.

A match is slightly larger than a standard screwdriver, and of roughly the same shape. It has a blunt, thick handle and a protruding point. When its blunt end is twisted clockwise, its point glows white-hot and is capable of cutting through most materials. The user's hand is protected from the heat by an insulating coating on the device, although a glove should be worn to keep the user from being scorched by whatever material he is cutting. It is capable of 30 seconds total cumulative use before its filament burns out.

Filaments are disposable and are sold in packs of five spikes for Cr300. The handle, which houses the batteries must be recharged after 30 seconds of use. The unit costs Cr2,000

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

It was originally developed as a cutting tool by research engineer at Ling-Standard Metals and it has seen a variety of uses, most notably (unfortunately) as a burglar's implement. Its size makes it quite handy, as it is portable enough to carry in a pocket, yet powerful enough to burn a hole in the hardest metals. To achieve this effect, it utilizes a pinhead-sized superconductor filament, connected to a ceramic focusing element.

Because it is often used as a burglar's tool, a match cannot usually be obtained on high law level worlds.

Getting a full set usually requires acquiring individual items from a number of sources or access to a central training facility for this specialized task.

Typical Security Tool Kit Contents[edit]

TL:1-3 & TL:4-6:
At low levels of technology, they include lockpicks and files for defeating mechanical locks, plus small pliers, wire cutters and a simple test meter for checking electronic circuits.

TL:7-9:
Medium-tech versions will include ultrasound, radio and infrared detectors and generators, and simple diagnostic readouts for rudimentary computer circuits.

TL:10-12 & TL:13-15:
High-tech versions will contain expert system diagnostics to help disengage recalcitrant alarm circuits, magnetic sensors, and basic biometric data generators.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The contents of any tool kit should be balanced against its TL. Lower technology kits might contain more primitive or simplistic tools, while more advanced kits might contain sophisticated items such as gravitic rebalancers. The exact contents will vary depending on the size and weight of the tool kit: small kits contain the bare minimum, or may contain ingenious "multi-tools" with a variety of attachments and adapters.

The Stik-kit is an adhesive patch, about 10cm by 10cm.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

One side of the patch is a layer of black ridged plastic, the other is a smooth white layer. The patch is activated by the user flexing the patch, which causes the white side to become extremely sticky, and will adhere to almost any surface. The patch will adhere under most conditions including vacuum, under water and most atmospheres. The adhesive cures in a few seconds of application. The adhesive may be inactivated by the application of a small electric charge, the patch comes with an integral battery. Once deactivated, the stik-kit is discarded.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The active stik-kit is capable of holding about 100kg, the limits of the plastic backing. The flexible plastic patches are used for many different types of quick, semi-permanent repairs.

Stik-kits are sold either individually or in packages of 10 patches.

Thermeld Strips are an explosive device.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Thermeld comes in 15cm long x 5cm wide x 3 cm deep strips of mildly flexible bright pink putty-like material, wrapped in yellow and black striped cellophane-like material, with a pull-strip on the base to expose a mildly adhesive base. Each strip is further wrapped in a vacuum-sealed transparent wrapping that also contains two piezo-electric initiator plugs.

After removing the strip from the outer packaging, and securing the initiators in a safe place, the bottom peel-off strip is removed, and the strip affixed to the joining surfaces to be welded together.

Two initiators are supplied for times when stress is high: It is not uncommon for an initiator to go 'walkies' and having a second initiator to hand is a measure of insurance against stress-induced forgetfulness. One initiator is sufficient to ignite an entire length of Thermeld strip; the initiator is pushed into a convenient place in the Strip, much like a plastic explosives detonator plug might be. The red and yellow striped tab is peeled off, to reveal a bright red and yellow pull ring. the ring connects to 1mm thick by 30cm long cable leading to a wind-up detonator within the body of the initiator, which then charges a high-charge capacitor, which on reaching full capacity, discharges after five seconds into the strip, which then ignites.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Thermeld Strips operate in much the same way that Linear burning ropes do, but to weld surfaces together in an emergency, rather than cut them. Thermeld is not a substitute for conventional welding equipment, but is a handy emergency substitute.

The rope burns extremely brightly (in a similar way to magnesium) and with very high temperature within the material being burned through; surrounding temperatures are high, but not excessively so. It takes about ten seconds for a weld to be conducted, and the welded surfaces will be exceedingly hot to the touch for about half an hour after burning.
