The Imperial Ship Profile is used by the Scout Service to classify ship mission and performance. It codes ship mission, tech level, size modifier and size indicator, jump and acceleration performance, configuration and features into one short record. Each position has a "factor" or value that represents an element of the ship; these include hull displacement tons, hull configuration, computer type, weapons, screens, fighters and the number of crew.
