The Anti-Missile Program is designed to coordinate all shipboard wepons and other system to stop or mitigate missile (GUW) fire. [1]

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Defensive programs are used to protect a starship against enemy action and particularly guided weapons.

  • Anti-missile allows any or all laser and kinetic weaponry to fire at enemy missiles which have targeted the ship during the preceding movement phase. [2]
  • The target and multitarget programs are not required. Other programs do not overtly affect the functioning of this program.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Software within Charted Space is intentionally built to work under a number of different operating systems, different technology levels of computers, and to be extensively toughened for hard use under vacuum if necessary. [8]

The Software List: The computer software list, available at nearly any software vendor or port, indicates the various programs that are available. It shows space required by a specific program in CPU or storage, its price in MCr, and its title. Also shown is a brief overview of its effects. [9]

Software Authorship: Various requirements exist for individual characters producing existng or new programs. Such a course can save money, but may have some pitfalls. Program generation is explained elsewhere. [10]
