Gravity control technology is one of the major techological breakthroughs (the others are Nuclear Dampers and Jump Drives).


Also know as:

  • Grav
  • Gravitics
  • Anti-grav
  • Contragrav

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The gravity control produces both weight neutralization and thrust.

  • This control of the force of gravity allows construction of vehicles, like the Air/Raft and G-Carrier, mapping of object mass through Densitometers, and safety equipment like the Grav Parachute.
  • While not often correlated by most people, historians have noted that the advent of practical fusion power plants is the result of applied gravitic compression of the fissionable fuels. Some mass-thrusters also rely on the gravitic compression of hydrogen to a near-fusion energy level. The ability to warp space-time and induce a jump is directly related to the control and understanding of gravitics. The Terran system failed to comprehend and use gravitics for many years, which delayed the Solomani expansion.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The first Gravcraft, or vehicles employing gravity control technology appear around (TL-9+).
