Agent Program

Comp-Prog-Dav-R-Deitrick-Starter-Trav-Page-16 16-July-2018a.jpg

The Agent Program is designed to allow a computer to make enquiries on behalf of its user.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Agent Programs are designed to allow a computer to make enquiries on behalf of its user. A Sophont using a computer to make an enquiry may ask the agent program to undertake that query on their behalf and in their absence. It may only make queries. In order to make those queries, the Agent Program has limited Artificial Intelligence and some expertise in using computers in its own right.

For a version of an Agent Program that can both enquire of data and deploy other programs to aid in that search, the more complex Intellect Program is required.

Anti-hijack Program

Comp-Prog-Dav-R-Deitrick-Starter-Trav-Page-16 16-July-2018a.jpg

The Anti-hijack Program is designed to prevent piracy or make it vastly more difficult. [1]

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Routine programs are used to operate systems other than weaponry, and without regard to violent interaction.

  • Anti-hijack protects the ship against potential takeovers. This program constantly monitors conditions within the starship, and automatically locks the access doors to the bridge and controls when a hijack situation occurs.
  • Because this system is not foolproof, would-be hijackers may gain access in spite of the program.
  • Some versions of the program have full environmental controls and can even initiate self-destruct commands. [2]

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 the computers operating them are extensively toughened for hard use under vacuum if necessary.

Standard Software Packages: Each computer comes with a software package of programs for use with the equipment. Because each computer may be put to a different use, their software package consists of a credit in MCr equal to the model number of the computer (treat 1bis and 2bis as 1 and 2 respectively). This credit may not be converted to cash. [10]

Computer programs (…especially starship programs as required for starship operations) are available, athough for relatively high price. It is also possible that such programs may be written by crew members with computer skill. The individual must have access to a computer which will handle the intended program, knowledge of the skill being incorporated, and no other duties, responsibilities, or distractions during each week of work programming. [11]

Auto-Repair Program

Comp-Prog-Dav-R-Deitrick-Starter-Trav-Page-16 16-July-2018a.jpg

The Auto-Repair Program is designed to allow a ship's computer to operate Repair Drones to fix itself in case of damage.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The Auto-Repair Program is designed to allow a ship's computer to operate Repair Drones to fix itself in case of damage. In order to do this, the ship must

  1. Have Repair Drones or Repair Bots to instruct or operate
  2. Have a working secure means of communication to those Vehicles
  3. Have an up to date view of the ship's systems in the Library Program
  4. Have the appropriate parts available to fix the issues identified.

Included in the Auto-Repair Program are:

  1. A specialist Intellect Program able to operate the required software and hardware
  2. A basic expertise in the remote operation of the repair Vehicles
  3. A basic expertise in the Mechanical, Engineering, etc. skills that need to be applied to undertake the various repairs found to be required.

Care should be taken when deploying this program since unregistered changes to the ship configuration will be seen by the computer as damage to be repaired.

Conscious Intelligence Program

Comp-Prog-Dav-R-Deitrick-Starter-Trav-Page-16 16-July-2018a.jpg

The Conscious Intelligence Program is a sentient digital being. (c.f. Intellect Program)

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Conscious Intelligence Programs are those programs that are so much more that the basic Intellect Program - no mere Artificial Intelligence.

The Conscious intelligence is a recognisable personality. It may well have a name and can (by some) be viewed as a form of life.

n.b. Despite this, the Imperium does not recognise the Conscious Intelligence Program as a legal person in Imperial Law.

Double Fire Program

Target-Program-WH-Keith-CT-Starter-Trav-Pg-40 03-July-2018a.jpg

The Double Fire Program is designed to increase the volume of fire from shipboard weaponry. [1]

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Offensive programs are intended to allow the use of weapons mounted on a ship to damage or destroy enemy vessels.

  • Double fire allows a ship to draw excess power (if available) from the power plant and thus increase the output of laser weaponry. When this program is functioning, a vessel with an adequate power plant can fire a double beam or double pulse with laser weaponry.
  • When unmonitored and fired without limit, this program can cause malfunction, overload, or other damage within the power plant, manueauver drive, or associated systems. [2]

ECM Program

Wiki Navy.png

The ECM Program, or Electronic Counter Measures Program, is designed to confuse and misdirect enemy electronics, particularly sensors and guidance systems. [1]

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Defensive programs are used to protect a starship against enemy action.

  • ECM is an electronic countermeasures program which jams and confuses the homing heads of incoming missiles, forcing them to explode prematurely in many cases. During the laser return fire phase, it will destroy nearly all missiles in near-contact with the ship.
  • Most missiles are destroyed at sufficient distance to prevent damage to the ship although sometimes missiles detonating closer to the ship may cause minor or sometimes even major damage. [2]

Fire Control Program

Ship-Turret-WH-Keith-CT-Starter-Trav-Pg-33 03-July-2018a.jpg

The Fire Control Program is designed to allow accurate fire with shipboard weapons. [1]

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Offensive programs are intended to allow the use of weapons mounted on a ship to damage or destroy enemy vessels.

  • Fire Control Program identifies enemy vessels and and controls all turrets on board ship. It is related to and includes Target Program, Gunner Program and Launch Program. (see below for full list)
  • It is required for all laser fire and launches except anti-missile fire.
  • It creates fire solutions, allows remote firing from the bridge, and coordinates all offensive and defensive systems on the ship with sensors and other equipment creating a force multiplier effect. It also allows the Ship's Computer to automatically fire weaponry if the target meets the set criteria. (Users of this software in automatic mode are reminded that "accidental" discharge causing damage to another's person or property is potentially liable to a civil action for damages and/or criminal charges - See Imperial Law).

The Advanced Fire Control Program[2] does no allow for the automated fire options, but does apply the targeting benefits to all the weapon systems on the ship.

Generate Program

Comp-Prog-Dav-R-Deitrick-Starter-Trav-Page-16 16-July-2018a.jpg

The Generate Program is designed to create safe jumpspace routes for use by interstellar starships engaging in FTL space travel. [1]

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Routine programs are used to operate systems other than weaponry, and without regard to violent interaction.

  • Generate creates a flight plan which will govern the use of the jump program. The navigator or pilot can input specific co-ordinates into the computer concerning a destination, and the generate program will create a flight plan to take the ship there.
  • In cases where a generate program is not available, starports have single-use flight plans (in self-erasing cassettes) available for all worlds within a jump range of six parsecs for Cr10,000 per jump number.
  • The generate program may be used independently and produces the required flight plan, which is then used by the ship’s computer when the jump is performed.

Note: This is a specialist form of Expert Program.

Gunner Program

Ship-Turret-WH-Keith-CT-Starter-Trav-Pg-33 03-July-2018a.jpg

The Gunner Program is designed to achieve accurate fire from shipboard weaponry. [1]

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Offensive programs are intended to allow the use of weapons mounted on a ship to damage or destroy enemy vessels.

  • Gunner interact interfaces the expertise of the gunner in a specific turret to the hit probability of those shipboard weapons hitting the target.
  • The expertise of the gunner contributes to the accuracy of the shipboard weaponry.
  • While most systems are designed to work in conjunction with a sophont gunner, the Fire Control Program (q.v.) and Virtual Gunner Program (below) allow fully automated weapons systems.

The Gunner Program is a specialist form of the generic Expert Program and can be mimicked by using Expert(Gunnery).[2]

The Virtual Gunner Program[3] allows the Ship's Computer to act as if it were a Gunner (or multiple Gunners).

(Users of the Virtual Gunner Program are reminded that "accidental" discharge causing damage to another's person or property is potentially liable to a civil action for damages and/or criminal charges - See Imperial Law).

Intellect Program

Comp-Prog-Dav-R-Deitrick-Starter-Trav-Page-16 16-July-2018a.jpg

The Intellect Program is designed to allow a computer to make enquiries on behalf of its user. (c.f. Agent Program)

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Intellect Programs are designed to allow a computer to make enquiries on behalf of its user. (c.f. Agent Program). A Sophont using a computer to make an enquiry may ask the Intellect Program to undertake that query on their behalf and in their absence in the same way as they may do so for an Agent Program, but it may not only make queries, it may also use Expert Programs, Intrusion Programs, etc. to progress and inform those queries. In order to make those queries, the Intellect Program has a level of Artificial Intelligence and some expertise in using computers in its own right.

The complexities of running a starship can be eased by having the starship run a more complex form of Intellect Program that allows the ship to understand verbal commands and operate Manoeuvre, Jump, Evasion and other useful programs.

The Interface Program is designed to allow a computer to communicate with its users

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Interface Programs are designed to allow a computer to communicate with its users. A Sophont using a computer for any job will find it formidably difficult to do so with no operating interface (although expertise in computer languages will help). These are generally of two types: The standard, basic, visual version with keyboard; and a more advanced, voice-activated/talking interactive version. The Interface Program will use one specific language: if another language is required, a Translator Program will be needed, or the interface will need to be replaced.

The Intrusion Program is designed to allow entry into a target computer system. [9]

Description (Specifications)[edit]

While most Offensive programs are intended to allow the use of weapons mounted on a ship to damage or destroy enemy vessels during physical warfare, the Intrusion Program is used in Information Warfare to penetrate the enemy's computer and observe its operation or degrade or subvert its performance.

n.b. for an Intrusion Program to work, the computer operating the Intrusion Program must have an open and unrestricted communications channel to the target computer.

Jump Program

Wiki Navy.png

The Jump Program is a miraculous technology designed to work with jump drives and make interstellar society possible. [1]

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Routine programs are used to operate systems other than weaponry, and without regard to violent interaction.

  • Jump is required to allow the ship to perform a jump through interstellar space. The specific program for the jump distance required must be used. For example, a Jump-6 ship which is going to perform Jump-3 must use the Jump-3 program.
  • Jump programs calculate millions, billions, or trillions of variable to create a safe path through jumpspace. All astrogators are trained to manually generate these routes, but few astrogators possess the expertise to manage a quality Generate Program and Jump Program working in conjunction. [2]
  • Calculations are only as good as the accuracy of the star charts used and data accuracy is vital since the locations of thousands of stars, mass objects, nebulae, comets, and other astrographic objects can fundamentally affect jump travel. Under the worst cases, terrible misjumps or even destruction f the starship may occur. As such, starships captains put a high premium on securing quality software. [3]

Maneuver/Evade Program

Wiki Navy.png

The Maneuver/Evade Program is designed to allow a ship to use evasive maneauver to avoid enemy weapon fire. [1]

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Defensive programs are used to protect a starship against enemy action.

  • Maneuver/evade is a series of six programs which automatically produce minor movement for a ship, thus reducing the chances of the ship being hit by laser fire. Each has a DM based on pilot expertise (take the fraction of pilot skill and drop any fractions). In addition, these programs allow the use of the maneuver drive as required, in lieu of the normal maneuver program.
  • The Auto/Evade Program performs a similar function, and is generally considered less effective. [2]

Multi-target Program

Target-Program-WH-Keith-CT-Starter-Trav-Pg-40 03-July-2018a.jpg

The Multi-target Program is designed to allow complex firing solutions from shipboard weaponry against multiple targets. [1]

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Offensive programs are intended to allow the use of weapons mounted on a ship to damage or destroy enemy vessels.

  • Multi-target is a series of programs that interface the ship's detectors and radar with several turrets and allows an attack on more than one target at one time. Each turret may still only fire at one specific target, but different turrets may fire at different targets.
  • This program is required if more than one ship target is fired on in the same phase. The target program is also required.

Navigation Program

Comp-Prog-Dav-R-Deitrick-Starter-Trav-Page-16 16-July-2018a.jpg

The Navigation Program is designed to safely and successfully travel through the vast mysteries of jump space. [1]

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Routine programs are used to operate systems other than weaponry, and without regard to violent interaction.

  • Navigation controls the jump process after a flight plan has been produced. Flight plans must be fed into the navigation program, which then interfaces with the jump program to actually take a ship to its destination.
  • To actually make a jump, both the jump and navigation programs must be functioning in the ship’s computer (…the generate program need only run long enough to actually create the flight plan).
  • While the TL-15 societies of Charted Space successfully use FTL travel on a daily basis, true understanding of jumpspace is extremely limited as almost any astrophyscists can tell you. [2]

Note: This is a specialist form of Expert Program.

RVO Program

Wiki Navy.png

The RVO Program (Routine Vehicle Operation) software is designed to handle routine shipboard procedures and actions such as landing, taking off, and routine spaceflight. [1]

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The Routine Vehicle Operation program enables the ship's computer to control it in normal operations, especially enroute to or from a jump or breakout point, or in jump space. The program will steer clear of obstacles and respond to simple instructions from traffic control, but will not perform dangerous maneuvers, "push the edge," or dodge in combat. If a situation arises that is beyond its capacity to handle - or t preset intervals or events - the program will sound an alarm and rouse the pilot to take over. [4]

The RVO program is rated as a skilled pilot for normal operations, but its capacity is extremely limited. In an emergency, the RVO program is capable of landing or docking the ship, but a mishap may result in a critical failure or disaster. Pilots are generally considered to be more flexible under most conditions and less critically prone to an escalation of unfortunate events. [5]

An RVO Program may substitute for one mate (...ship's crew member) on a temporary basis (...usually by having the remaining two stand heel-to-toe watches, with the RVO program as backup), but the shortage should be made up as soon as possible. [6]

n.b. The RVO Program includes the Expert Program for Piloting.[7]

Automation in 1105[edit]

Automatic Pilot Competency: "Autopilots" - be they robot brains or sophisticated software - can conceivably produce ships cpabl of landing and taking off by themselves, with only general directions from their living crew. This was the logical extension of Terran automation trends before the Interstellar Wars. They unfortunately also have the potential to short-circuit under the most inopportune and dramatic situations. [8] Unfortunately, many parts of Imperial Space developed a taboo against extensive automation and artificial intelligence. [9]

Return Fire Program

Wiki Navy.png

The Return Fire Program is designed to allow quick counterfire against attacking enemy ships. [1]

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Defensive programs are used to protect a starship against enemy action.

  • Return fire allows a ship's lasers to fire at enemy ships which fired at the ship in the immediately previous fire phase.
  • Use of this program also requires the target program, and advantages allowed by other programs (such as gunner interact) can be complimentary.
  • If more than one enemy ship is fired on, the multi-target program is also required.

Security Program

Imperial-Sunburst-Sun-Scouts-wiki.png

The Security Program is designed to protect a target computer system. [1]

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The Security Program is used in Information Warfare to protect your own Computer from attack by the enemy's computer.

For an attack to take place, the enemy's Computer must have an open and unrestricted communications channel to the defended Computer. The simplest security method is to ensure that this is not the case. Once that connection is made, however, it is then the Security Program that prevents access to the data and functions held therein.

Every Computer is delivered with a basic level of security. This security is, however, not infallible and more effective security software is generally installed if possible - although the hardware needed to run that improved software can, of itself, become an extensive requirement with its own associated costs.

Select Program

Target-Program-WH-Keith-CT-Starter-Trav-Pg-40 03-July-2018a.jpg

The Select Program is designed to allow specific, targeted weapon fire, albeit with some drawbacks. [1]

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Offensive programs are intended to allow the use of weapons mounted on a ship to damage or destroy enemy vessels.

  • Select allows a gunner to attempt to choose the part of the target ship he hits. Select-1 and Select-2 increases accuracy against several targets within a designated area, but decreases overall accuracy against the probability of hitting a single target. [2]
  • However, they allow a gunner a one-third chance of hitting the exact area of the target he chooses, if the weapon does hit.

Target Program

Ship-Turret-WH-Keith-CT-Starter-Trav-Pg-33 03-July-2018a.jpg

The Target Program is designed to allow accurate fire with shipboard weapons. [1]

  • This is a program, a kind of computer software.
  • It is designed to be used with a Ship’s Computer, although it could be used with other kinds of computers as well.
  • This is a core ship’s computer program and is required in order to use a variety of other computer programs that interact with it.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Offensive programs are intended to allow the use of weapons mounted on a ship to damage or destroy enemy vessels.

  • Target identifies enemy vessels and and controls all turrets on board ship.
  • It is required for all laser fire and launches except anti-missile fire.
  • It creates fire solutions, allows remote firing from the bridge, and coordinates all offensive and defensive systems on the ship with sensors and other equipment creating a force multiplier effect. [2]

Virtual Crew Program

Comp-Prog-Dav-R-Deitrick-Starter-Trav-Page-16 16-July-2018a.jpg

The Virtual Crew Program is an Artificial Intelligence system that automates certain crew roles. (c.f. Intellect Program)

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Virtual Crew Programs allow simple tasks to be automated within a ship. The Auto-Repair Program, Virtual Gunner Program and Anti-Hijack Program are all (basically) specialist variants of Virtual Crew Program with their own abilities and limitations.

The Virtual Crew Program can be directed from within the ship or (with appropriate communications in place) externally. They can replace any role where the ship merely requires direction - e.g. Pilot (Called an Auto-Pilot), Astrogator (effectively an advanced Navigation Program), Sensor Operator or Sensor Operator, or (to a more limited extent) Medic, Loadmaster or Steward.

Virtual Crew Programs may use Expert Programs to enhance their capabilities - e.g. to operate cargo bots, janitor drones, etc.

The control systems of an Autodoc can also be seen as a form of Virtual Crew Program.

n.b. Virtual Crew Programs operate under the control of the Captain of the Ship and are his legal responsibility.

The Virtual Mining Program allows computing power to be rented to outside bodies on a second by second basis.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The Virtual Mining Program allows computing power to be rented to outside bodies on a second by second basis. This allows huge networks of computers to be constructed to execute enormously complex computing and maths questions at a relatively modest cost. They will provide an income while in use.

n.b. The security implications of running (or being able to run) this software are often overlooked by the users in their rush for cash.

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. [7]

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. [8]

Software Authorship: Various requirements exist for individual characters producing existing or new programs. Such a course can save money, but may have some pitfalls. Program generation is explained elsewhere. [8]
