Atmosphere Tester

Atmosphere Tester
Type Survival gear
Tech Level 9
Size 2.0 liters
Weight 1kg
Cost Cr150

The "Sniffer" Atmosphere Tester from Survival Products is a solid state miniaturized gaseous analyzer incorporating microprocessor circuitry to detect and indicate the molecular components in gas samples passing its detector head. The Sniffer is typical of most atmosphere testers on the market today.

Specifications: One kilogram weight, and measuring 100mm by 175mm by 20mm. Corrosion resistant case of phenolic plastic. 8.7 to 9.3 volt power supply, from rechargeable battery pack. Estimated charge life: 100 hours. Belt attachment available, optional. Sling carrying strap standard. Price: Cr150. TL-9.

Operation: The device is in constant operation, with LEDs indicating chemical symbol for the three major components in the gas sample, with percentage of total shown. Pressing the button labelled "More" replaces this with the next three components. Up to 30 components and percentages may be read in this manner. in addition, three lights (red, amber, and green) are mounted on the face of the device. Whenever the light (or lights) showing changes, an audible beep indicates the change. Red indicates that the atmosphere is not breathable. Green indicates that it is. Green and amber indicates that it is breathable but tainted. Red and amber indicates that the atmosphere is not breathable and also contain material considered to be taint. Amber alone indicates a lack of pressure, but breathable mixture. The exact mixtures which trigger the lights are set at the factory, but may be adjusted to fit personal preference.

Serial Numbers: Sniffers are numbered in the format nnnn-xxxx-y. N is the model year number; the year of production. X is the serial number. Y is a check digit to insure the correct serial number is stated.

Recall Notice: Sniffers in the 4000 serial number range may have been assembled with a faulty detector head casing; this, in combination with the plastic case, allows gas to infiltrate onto the interior of the case. In some cases (insidious atmosphere) this may result in the contamination of the solid state electronics, and result in faulty readings, or outright failure. Such items should be returned to a factory representative for repair. Those with a two-digit check digit have already been recalled and repaired.

Size 3l
Weight 1kg
Cost Cr150

A water-filtering device, designed for survival conditions. The filter bottle has an opening on the top, with a lockable cap and a small folding tap on the base. In use, the tainted water is poured into the top of the bottle, it drips down through the osmotic filters and the clean water is drawn off from a tap on the base of the bottle. The device uses an electro-static osmotic membrane; the electrical charge comes from an inbuilt battery, which can be charged with an inbuilt crank or from the solar film which covers the outside of the bottle. The filter bottle is supplied with a small squeeze pump, a waterline and a folding funnel, which are stored in a false bottom, built onto the bottle. In typical conditions, the filter bottle will cleanse 10 litres of water per 24 hour period, after which time, the battery will be dead. 8 hours of direct sunlight or 1 hour of cranking will recharge the battery.

Weight 2.0 kg
Cost Cr15

A Grapnel, or a grappling hook, is a hook at the end of a line, which is used for attempting climbs up sheer pitches. Maximum range to throw a grapnel is about 30 meters, thus, seven separate climbs would complete a 200 meter pitch (planting the grapnel on a ledge or projection, climbing to it, then repeating). Grapnel climbing bypasses the procedure of sending up a lead climber; each climb is equivalent to a regular climb up emplaced ropes.

  • Handcuffs are an advancement on the Manacles, using a hinged metal bracelet with a locking ratchet for each wrist. These are connected by a short chain or bar.
  • Electro-cuffs incorporate a battery and a remote trigger device to administer an incapacitating electric shock to the prisoner.

In addition to the reusable restraints, there are a number of single use restraint devices. Each of these must be cut or destroyed to remove the restraints.

  • Zip-cuffs consist of a 1cm wide plastic strip with a ratchet lock on one end. They are simple to manufacture and very inexpensive.
  • Cufftape consists of a roll of perforated tape, breaking every two feet. The tape sticks best to itself, and the two foot lengths makes for a convenient length for a restraint device.
  • Stik-cuff is related to sticky weapon, consisting of a small spray can of quick setting epoxy.

Portable cold capsule
Type Survival gear
Tech Level 11
Size 20 l
Weight 9kg
Cost Cr30,000

An inflatable, portable cold-sleep chamber that can be used to put a person into cold sleep where no permanent cold-sleep facilities exist. A portable cold capsule consists of a sarcophagus-shaped plastic cocoon, with airtight fastenings, bloodline, pump, self-guiding, pre-loaded autojector, complete with a mixture of cold sleep drugs, control technology and a power pack, which will keep its inhabitant alive and in cold-sleep for 24 standard months. The portable cold capsule is an emergency device which is technically re-usable, but is usually discarded after use. As with a regular cold-sleep chamber, the consumables used in one hibernation and revival cost Cr100.

To use the portable cold capsule, the subject starts the apparatus, climbs into the sarcophagus, sites the bloodline with the autojector and closes the cover over their head. As the subject drifts into cold-sleep, the sarcophagus seals and converts from pliant to rigid, cradling the subject in a solid cocoon.

Weight 5 kg
Cost Cr150
Rescue balls are standard equipment on all Imperial military vessels and on most private ships as well. When folded, the rescue ball is a cylinder 5 cm in diameter and 10 cm long. When deployed, it forms a sphere one meter in diameter which contains air sufficient to last one person for two hours. In the event of explosive decompression or other loss of air, a rescue ball allows an individual not in possession of a vacc suit to survive until aid arrives.

The user pulls a lanyard, climbs inside and seals the zip closure. The ball is made of a metal-coated plastic film for ease of location by radar and contains a bottle of compressed air, a first aid kit, and a transparent window through which the occupant may observe conditions outside the ball. Rescue balls provide some protection from stellar radiation and corrosive and insidious atmospheres for five to seven hours.

Suit patches are made from flexible plastic with a light reinforcing mesh for strength and have an adhesive coating on the back which can be used in atmosphere or vacuum. They are designed to patch breaches in vacc suits or hostile environment suits. They are unnecessary for small holes on self-sealing suits.

Application of a patch takes ten seconds and is done by pulling off a tab protecting the adhesive, pressing the patch over the hole. and holding until the glue sets. The patches come in a pouch which can be attached to the suit in a convenient location by an adhesive strip. These patches are not meant to be permanent because they are weaker than the suit material. More permanent repairs should be made at the first opportunity.

The bubble can be used for life support in vacuum (it can be moved by walking on the inside in treadmill fashion), and can also be used for protection against weather or as a lifeboat on a sea surface. It has good abrasion resistance, but no appreciable armor value. Normal procedure is to sit in one and wait. Most survival bubbles have one panel modified so that a hand can be used to grip or crudely manipulate outside objects from inside the bubble.

Type Survival gear
Tech Level 10
Size 2.2m
Weight 250g
Cost 350cr

A garment designed for emergency conditions, the survival poncho is a large garment, made from Evelene, a temperature-sensitive material.

Evelene has the property of reacting to temperature changes. The fabric consists of ring-shaped cells, around 10,000 per square millimetre. When the ambient temperature drops below 18ºc the cells puff up, trapping air and making the material thicker and warmer. When the temperature rises above 18ºc the cells shrink, expelling the air and thinning out, making the material thinner and cooler. No matter what the temperature survival ponchos are showerproof, being able to stop rain travelling at 30kmph.

Survival ponchos are square, 2.2m per side , with a hole in the centre for the wearer's head. The poncho features a hood, internal pockets and adjustment straps. In use, the poncho can be worn like a poncho or the hood can be fastened over the head-hole, sealing it over and the poncho can be used as a blanket.
