A Psion Emitter is a device designed to simulate psionic signals.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The Psion emitter is a small electronic device which emits a random electromagnetic signal that mimics the neural bioelectrical signals produced by sophonts. A typical commercial psion emitter has a range of approximately 8 meters, though more powerful versions are available. It is powered by a small, replaceable battery that lasts for about an hour of constant use.

  • The device produces emissions that behave enough like the theoretical psion to trick detectors.
  • It is known that individuals with psionic powers can detect psion emitters, but are rarely fooled by it.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The main function of a Psion Emitter is to trigger (or jam) a Psionicist Detector.
