The Rurevayn Institute of Advanced Medical Physics & Bioengineering is well known for its developments in prosthetic and replacement surgery, medical instruments, biosensors, scanners, other equipment and medical software. The Institute forms part of the larger University of Imaparlu campus with many of the staff and students actively involved with both establishments, the Institute retains its independence with separate funding and a governing body divorced from the University. The Institute holds 35% of Abir's tradeport as a major part of its income.

Point of Industry: Medical Industry[edit]

The University of Imaparlu is a major supplier of the qualified medics in Gushemege. Many of the newly graduated medics transfer to Rurevayn Institute of Advanced Medical Physics & Bioengineering (also on Imaparlu) where they undertake extensive research in the biotechnological fields. The university also boasts one of the best biogeneering facilities outside of Solomani or Hiver space. The whole biological science field is well supported within the university.

History-Era: New Era[edit]

Imaparlu hosted one of the most important naval bases in Strephons safe area. The 912st BatRon/231st Fleet assigned as a Penetration Fleet and the 12146st AssltRonCol/1148th Reserve Fleet shared the facility.

When Virus arrived in form of a modern empire builder, he took control over the naval base and delivered a suicider to the main worlds TL–A network. The local economy collapsed to TL–4 and was ruled by brutal dictator, who claimed ownership over his population by his Imperial Nobility. A restrain of the Naval base in 1142 was successful, and an decap assault a year later replaced the former government with a representative democracy.

The Naval base is on a moon orbiting the inner gas giant. Over 20 million sentients 74% of them robots are living and working here. The facility has grown several times. The inner housing ring around a dock has still the flair of old imperial navy. Narrow corridors for hot bunking up to 5 stages, are frequently used by human workers who need a short sleep. The newer areas show the typical unification housing structure of the FDR fleets. Several large rooms around a central recreation area, shared by a group who is used to work and live together. A smaller complex has replaced parts of the old bunking. Those inner uniflats are special assigned and quite a lot are allocated for crews waiting to have the annual overhaul of their ship completed.

The facility was build completely subterranean during the rebellion. The main graph dock has a size of 600*200*90 meters and is able to host a TF11. Two smaller docks were designed for the BL14, but even their size with a length of 305 meter is more than sufficient for more than one of the modern vessel. Those 3 dock are most times called the vac docks, as they are not under pressure, to distinct them form the so called suitless docks and bays, where most of the work is done. The base is divided in several sections, each with own power supply, life support, a meson screen, surface sensors and deep mount meson defense, grouped around one of the large docks or 5 of the smaller bays. Deeper sections are grouped around fabrication facilities or storage. Each section has its own holographic network, a redundant TL:8 backbone is inter networking between them.

Transport is mainly done by grav floaters in the tunnels connecting the natural ilmeniti antra. The largest tunnels, between the 3 main docks call once a year for the "traders race". Any starship able to take 100dt of cargo can take part in the race. The rules are simple: With a offset of 30 minutes, each crew has to load its cargo, start the vessel, move to the next dock unload, get a certificate that the cargo is still in order and take up the next cargo. The type of cargo will be selected by drawing cards, neural activity sensors supervise that nobody tries to fake this TL:0 method by using psionics. If you are lucky you'll have a lot ready packed in 28mq containers, but the race saw more than one crew who didn't manage to move the Jump Drive or wasted hours carefully handling the magic plants. But handling the cargo is not the only problem. While the artificial tunnels run straight, the natural caves are sometimes so narrow that its necessary to turn and try another way. Especial if the way you know that your vessel fits, is now locked by a stupid greenhorn.

The main world Imaparlu is one orbit deeper. With 570 milibar with a oxy/nitro mix of 23/76 together with a warm climate makes this worlds a pleasant place. Tala Imaparlus main city, the moonees call it "downtown", is hosting the most important starport for dynamical linked ships, proud of the same or even a better standard than Usdiki. Over 50 arrivals and departures per day are stressing logistics to its limits. Sitting idle in orbit, and waiting for landing confirmation can sometimes take up a week. So many traders prefer shuttle service from a smaller city, if the type of cargo allows for in space exchange.

Besides its space industry Tala is also know for his expertise in medical education.
