Equipment classification: C - Cables and Surface Gear[edit]

Survival Gear covers equipment for working in wilderness conditions on planetary surfaces or other locations. Many of the items are included in different survival kits supplied for emergency conditions. These items are recommended when traveling outside of civilized locales.

Collections of survival gear frequently include breathing apparatus and protective gear for a complete experience.


Atmosphere Tester

Atmosphere Tester
Type Sensory Aid
Tech Level TL–8
Cost Cr150
Size 2 liters
Weight 1 kg

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.

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.

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.

    A bio-engineered artificial organism, the bio-still is a genetically-engineered life-form, which will eat organic garbage and excrete alcohol. The bio-still appears as a roughly egg-shaped body, 900mm high and 600mm wide, with a mouth on top and a pair of stout feet on the bottom. The still has a nipple on its front, from which the alcohol is drawn. The bio-still stands still for most of the day, however it will occasionally shuffle its feet and jiggle around. The still can produce around 40 litres of liquid every 5 days. The process of fermentation takes 5 days, after which time the alcoholic liquid can be drawn off via the nipple. The alcoholic fluid is around 14% ethanol by volume. It is essentially tasteless and needs to be flavoured with wine, beer, cider or mixed-drink flavouring. Bio-stills are illegal on a few worlds and are viewed with suspicion on many others.

    Weight 1.0 kg

    An Emergency Beacon is a sophisticated long-range combination communicator and signal transponder. The Emergency Beacon's internal transponder monitors common emergency search–and–rescue channels (one at a time). When traffic is picked up, the device simultaneously emits a shrill warning tone to alert users to the possibility that help is at hand and transmits a coded distress signal. When transmitting an emergency signal it is an Active device. Some more expensive models have provision for a taped, auto-repeat distress call, instead of the automatic code signal.

    The Emergency Beacon serves as a means of establishing contact when there is any search being mounted within 500 kilometers, and then it serves to continue communications after that initial contact. The transponder operates for 30 days.

    Also see Signal Flare

    A Flare Gun or Flare Launcher consists of a pistol-like launcher which can fire any of several types of signal flares up to 50 meters. In addition to being used for signals, it can fire illuminating flares which can be used for spotting purposes in darkness. Signal Flare cartridges are generally loaded individually. Once the cartridge as been fired the flare gun must be reloaded.

    A flare gun is used for long-range signaling and has both civil and military applications. Flare Guns are often part of the equipment found as part of a Ship's Locker or within Emergency Lockers.

    A Flare Gun launches (fires) a Signal Flare - this is generally referred to as a cartridge or round. Cartridges come in two main varieties: the standard signal flare and the illumination round. Signal flares are generally subdivided by color. Some signal flares may have an audible component (typically a whistle or a loud bang).

    Flare guns and the signal flares can set fire to flammable materials as a secondary effect. When used as a weapon, the Signal Flares that the flare gun fires cause little damage from impact but can cause severe burns.

    Weight 2 kg
    Also see Rope

    A grapnel, or a grappling hook, consists of three or more flukes attached to the end of a rope. Many examples have folding flukes for ease of transport. A grapnel is generally used for attempting climbs up sheer pitches. A grapnel may be secured in place to allow a descent.

    Grapnels may be thrown into wreckage or debris to spread it out or drag items clear.

    Maximum range to throw a grapnel is about 30 meters. 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 the emplaced ropes.

    Grapnel Gun.png
    Type Survival gear
    Tech Level TL–8
    Cost Cr100
    Size 6.0 liters
    Weight 10.0 kg

    A Grapnel Gun is a device which hurls a projectile attached to some sort of rope or line. This line can be used to pull an object closer, to climb a vertical surface in a gravity well, or to move safely and under control toward an object in zero-G. The effectiveness of this device depends on how securely the projectile can be anchored to the target.

    A sharp, carbon-alloy projectile is used at TL–8 to TL–13. The head of the projectile embeds itself in the target and immediately releases four perpendicular barbs to hold it in place. Removing the head is a matter of twisting a locking collar to retract the barbs and pulling the head from the surface. This type of projectile uses either a powder or chemical charge with a rope or cable line.

    If used as a makeshift weapon it can do a little damage at a very short range and may knock down the target by the grapnel and its trailing rope.

    At TL–14, new developments in molecular bonding allow creation of an improved projectile. The projectile head is a polymer/circuitry combination which fastens to any surface. Using a compact, low-voltage power source creates a subatomic electrical bond with the surface it strikes; it, in effect, becomes a part of the target surface. The power level control is at the opposite end of the I braided graphite fiber line and must be set to the proper output for the target surface. Subatomic forces vary with the structure of the atom, and thus different materials require different power level settings. Due to the lighter weight of this projectile and line, the gun is a gauss-type ideal for zero-G use. Therefore, it is highly desired by asteroid mining companies.

    The Jumar Hoist or Handled Eccentric Cam Ascender is a personal hoist which makes roped ascents and descents much easier to undertake. Jumars do nothing to increase speed; they merely make the climb easier.

    The jumar consists of a handle attached to a hook that goes around a rope with a cam to allow the handle to slide one way on the rope but not the other. A climber uses two on a rope, sliding one, then the other, up the rope to ascend. This also works for moving along a cable in Zero-G or microgravity.

    Weight 0.15kg
    Also see Flare Gun

    A Laser Flare is a light weight low-powered laser pointer designed for use as hand-held alert signal. The laser is powered by an internal, rechargeable battery, which lasts for 72 hours of continuous use before requiring a recharge. Unlike regular laser pointers, the flare laser uses a lens to spread the beam, making it easier to see the laser at a distance. The beam is visible to naked eye at ranges of up to 50 km under ideal conditions and 8 km in daylight. With the use of laser sensors, the laser flare is visible line of sight up to low orbit.

    The device is sealed, making it operational in atmospheres from hard vacuum to 4 atmospheres, including most exotic or corrosive ones or under water. It has an operating temperature range of -250°C to +350°C.

    At TL–10, the laser flare integrates a computer control system to automatically flash the laser, transmitting several standard emergency signals. The flare includes the ability to include short messages digitally encoded in the laser signal.

    Cost Cr3,500
    Size 3 liters
    Weight 2 kg

    The Scout Service's Portable Radiation Imaging System (or PRIS Binoculars) is still anachronistically called "field glasses" by most Scouts, but the PRIS has many more capabilities than the old style binoculars.

    The PRIS can be set to observe images in the spectral range from infrared to gamma rays. The front surface of the PRIS is transparent to all radiation; just behind it is a series of lenses tailored to various specific bands.

    A laser range finder gives an accurate reading on the target within sight up to about 20km, depending upon conditions. The range is displayed as a digital readout in the viewfinder. The PRIS also has a built-in clock and limited memory, so that it can determine the velocity of the object being viewed by comparing its distance from the observer over time.

    The unit can be calibrated to a standard self-precessing gyrocompass, in which case the bearing of the direction viewed will be digitally displayed in the corner of the viewfinder.

    It also has a standard data port, allowing capture of the viewfinder as digital images on a standard hand-comp or other data storage system.

    The magnification strength of the PRIS is adjustable up to 225x. A built-in flywheel for gyroscopic stabilization insures a steady field of view at all magnifications.

    Besides its obvious used in the field, the PRIS also finds itself used in a variety of industrial and engineering applications. Its infrared images can be color coded to show the ambient temperatures of objects in the viewfinder. A PRIS can therefore be found near every jump drive, to be used by the engineers looking for "hot spots" on the drive housing. In other areas of the ship, the PRIS can detect problems in electrical circuits, again by finding an area of higher temperature.

    Personal Restraints are a tool used to hold and restrain people. Used by police and security forces to hold captured criminals and others. The primary restraints are used to bind the hands and arms of suspects.

    Manacles are the earliest version, they consist of a pair of iron straps, one to go around each wrist of the prisoner, connected by a short chain. Usually manufactured around TL–3.

    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 some 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.

    Pitons are metal spikes fitted with a ring at one end with (to pass a rope through), which are used in mountain climbing as a hold. Several specific types are available. The simplest TL–4 pitons are soft iron spikes driven into rock. An advanced TL–7 version, is of similar design but uses superior alloys. At TL–8, pitons have a radical design: they are not driven into rock at all, but use a quick-setting superglue to attach themselves to rock faces. Once set, they cannot be removed without using special solvents; however, use of these pitons' doubles ascent speeds. The solvent weighs 0.5kg (500 applications) and costs Cr20.

    The ultimate in pitons, the sophisticated devices at TL–10 include a small battery pack and a powerful heating element in the tip. When activated, a sudden white-hot burst of heat helps set the piton with a minimum of effort (just steady pressure by the climber). This will also set pitons in soft iron, armor, steel, and crystaliron as well as stone and cement.

    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.

    Survival Food Ration

    Survival Food Ration
    Type Foods
    Tech Level TL–12
    Cost Cr6
    Size 1 liter
    Weight 750g
    Manufacturer Logan Subsistence Company

    The Logan Subsistence Company of Garda-Vilis (Spinward Marches 1118) is proud to announce the introduction of its new line of Survival Food Ration, a compact, long-lasting ration.

    The unopened chocolate-based ration weighs 600 grams in a resealable plastic container which can double as a cup and water container and is priced at 5 Imperial Credits per survival packet. The multi-use packet and the Vargr hard biscuit packets weight 750 grams in a resealable plastic box, and costs 6 Imperial Credits per ration packet.

    The primary component of each ration packet is four 125 gram individually wrapped bars, with each bar providing 600 calories and a balanced portion of the required vitamins and minerals required for the typical human. Included with the four bars are three powdered drink packets supplying Vitamin C in a highly palatable form when mixed with a half-liter of water, and a supplementary vitamin tablet in addition to the vitamins contained in the bars to ensure an adequate vitamin intake. The bars are composed of a mixture of chocolate, dehydrated milk powder, and grains, stabilized to tolerate elevated temperatures, and if desired, can be used to produce a chocolate drink by dissolving the bar in warm water. The four bars together supply sufficient calories to sustain the average size human for one day of moderate activity.

    A multi-use bar for both humans and Vargr is similar in packaging and weight, with the primary difference being the use of powdered dried meat instead of the chocolate and additional use of animal fats in the formulation. These bars also supply 600 calories per bar and are palatable to both humans and Vargr. The supplementary beverage packets contain both the Vitamin C fortified beverage packets and three additional packets of powdered meat broth enriched with salt for the use of the Vargr, although humans also find the broth nourishing and palatable. Two vitamin tablets are provided, one for Vargr use and one for human consumption.

    A special Vargr only ration packet is available containing four 150-gram hard biscuits containing a total of 2400 calories and a balanced vitamin and mineral intake without the need of supplementary tablets or beverage packets. The four biscuits are individually wrapped in waterproof packets and may be carried easily in the pocket. This packet would not be suitable for human use, however, except in an emergency.

    Logan Subsistence is in the process of testing the ration packets for use by the Droyne and whether a supplemental vitamin will be needed. It appears that both the chocolate-based human bar and the meat-based multi-use bar are suitable for Droyne use as well, with a preference being shown for the chocolate-based bar. Further testing is proceeding, and Logan Subsistence is committed to supplying the highest quality of survival food products to the widest number of consumers for competitive prices.

    Weight 250g

    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 center 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.

    Survival tent

    Survival tent
    Type Structure
    Tech Level TL–12
    Cost Cr2000
    Size 130 liters
    Weight 20kg

    The Survival tent is a standard item for exploration teams, and ship's boats often have one stowed behind a panel with other emergency supplies. It comes in two cylindrical parts, the top being removed before activation. If directions are followed carefully (and survival may depend on it!), the lower half becomes a two cubic meter "airlock" with an attached hemisphere enclosing 17 cubic meters (4m diameter, 2m high), inflated with breathable air from a separate canister. The half-dome and airlock quickly become permanently rigid from a catalytic reaction triggered upon activation. They are then anchored to the ground if necessary. The survival tent has a marginal solar power supply built into the fabric, and three windows of reasonable transparency. The "doors" are simply panels of rigidized fabric, and internal atmospheric integrity is maintained by gluing them shut after each use.

    The airlock has no means of pressure control, and some of the external atmosphere (if any) will get into the tent with each use, while some of the internal atmosphere will escape to the outside

    The remaining half of the original cylinder is a combination Emergency Beacon and atmosphere circulator, which can provide breathable air for up to six people indefinitely, and filter out traces of harmful atmospheres like chlorine, ammonia and methane. Corrosive atmospheres will eat through the tent in seven to ten days, depending upon local factors.

    The emergency beacon uses metal fibers within the tent fabric as an antenna, which also help the tent reflect radar scans. It is presumed that anyone using such a tent on an inhospitable world is expecting rescue.

    On hospitable worlds, a survival tent can be used as an equipment locker, shower, radio hut, or any form of semi-permanent dwelling by slapping on a few adhesive strips to act as door hinges and latches, and cutting out the windows for air circulation.

    A survival tent is in packed form is about meter long and 0.2 meters in diameter. It masses about 20kg. These tents are available through Imperial channels for about Cr2000. Basic catalytic tents without the extra features (airlock, emergency beacon, etc.) cost about Cr750 and mass 15kg.

    A Tarpaulin or tarp is a waterproof sheet used for temporary shelter. A Reflectorized Tarpaulin protects against radiated heat.

    A tarpaulin is typically a sheet of a heavy, strong textile that is resistant to the effects of weather. Versions manufactured at higher tech levels may have fluid-repelling coatings or be made from artificial fibers. A standard tarpaulin measures 2x4 meters. There are grommets around the edges to serve as tie-down or anchor points.

    A tarpaulin is a versatile item with many uses. It is most commonly utilized as a component to construct temporary shelters, to cover vehicles, equipment, and supplies, or to act as a screen.

    A tarpaulin included in a survival kit will typically have a high visibility finish. Commercial or military types may be plain, printed with logos, or be camouflaged.

It provides an average 1.5 Kilo-joules of heat, enough to keep spaces up to 18 square meters (like a tent or a cabin) warm depending upon external conditions. The 3 liter tank provides fuel for up to 12 hours. Most versions have a thermostat to adjust for a comfortable temperature. Fuel comes in metal or plastic containers of 4 liters or in pressurized disposable canisters which weigh 450 grams and provide 6 hours use. An adapter kit is necessary to use the pressurized canisters and costs 10 Cr.

    The Thermosuit is a lightweight undergarment lined with thermoelectric filaments. When attached to any power supply it heats up or cools down and keeps the wearer comfortable in almost any human habitable environment. The power required depends on the conditions, but ranges from 100 to 1,000 watts.[1]

    At lower TLs where these are available, they are often used in vehicles that do not rate or cannot provide sufficient temperature control, such as race cars. Heat or cold from the thermosuit is routed to heat sinks, which are either placed on the body somewhere, or attached somewhere where they can receive a cooling or warming air flow.[2]

    The Wall Patch is semi-flexible patch of composite and metal fabrics with air-tight plastic layers between them. Removing one from its standard wall mount by the carrying handle exposes an anaerobic adhesive layer, which when pressed to a hull breach will form around it and cure in seconds. If the resulting bond is airtight, the repair will usually last indefinitely, but should be fixed at next opportunity.

    The patch will cover most breaches up to 15cm in diameter and can usually only be used from the high-pressure side of a leak. Wall patches can be used as suit patches in an emergency, and have been used as impromptu slaplocks to keep portals open or closed (but only half as effective).

    Water Dye is a tube of liquid dye which can be used to highlight a patch of water (around a raft at sea, or in a lake near a crash site) with a bright, easily spotted color visible from the air.

    The primary drawbacks to this form of signaling are the short duration of the colored patch (it lasts no more than 15 minutes in stall water, much less if water is rough or there is any form of precipitation to break it up). and the fact that it can not be used at night. The latter problem is offset in dyes available at TL–9, for twice the basic cost. These contain a phosphorescent dye equally visible in day or night.

    Generally, water dyes are useful only when searches are aware of the presence of the distressed travellers, and are in need of an exact location than some signal to draw their attention in the first place. A tube provides a single dye patch of around 10 meters diameter.
