1Advanced SE Suits BBBApparelBody Armor

Advanced SE Suits
Used in exploration, reconnaissance and for tactical maneuverability in the field. Nano-reinforced composite helmet allows a 320 degree rotational field of vision with info display of vital stats, environmental conditions, communications systems and data analysis. Cadmium exoskeleton provides safety and stability over rough terrain. Iridium-coated, laser resistant light armor optional.

2Atmosphere Processor BBBTechnology ProductsElectronics

Atmosphere Processor
This proprietary system creates a localized environment in the lowest atmospheric strata by mining the surrounding air and delivering electrostatic charge to correct the chemical composition of the planetary atmosphere. The system does this by converting toxic compounds into a breathable air ratio of approximately 1:3.1 oxygen-to-nitrogen ratio, depending on a colony's oxygen needs. Once stable equilibrium is achieved, the AP continually monitors environmental gas compositions and corrects imbalances. By-products can often be isolated and condensed for use as fuel sources, industrial cleaning supplies or raw materials for manufacturing.

3ATV NR6 BBBVehiclesMotor Vehicles

Two-person transport vehicle with 4-tread, track-belted wheels able to negotiate near-vertical terrain carrying small payload. With the NR6, Weyland planetary engineers are able to survey previously inaccessible areas of newly discovered proto-colonies. Vehicles reach top speeds of 88 mph in standard atmospheric pressure and gravitational pull. Variable-friction axes for front and rear wheels provide micro-torque gear adjustments for maximum safety and mobility across any foreign surface.

4Bio-Replicator PodBBBTechnology ProductsElectronics

Bio-Replicator Pod
This remarkable device was introduced in 2058 for use by Weyland planetary engineers. However, recent advancements have made bio-replicator pods available to off-world civilians for home use. Each pod has a database of over 40 million seed varieties and plant DNAs. With the push of a button, it can replicate the requested sample. Growth rates are currently at about 55%, not factoring unsuitable planetary conditions for a given species. At 1 cubic foot in size, an array of thousands of bio-replicator pods can be outfitted to any seeder for industrial use. For household use, it is recommended to store bio-replicator pods outside the home.

8Heliades BBBVehiclesSpacecrafts

As the first-ever FTL space exploration vehicle, Heliades revolutionized the known galaxy. Dual FTL engines are driven by a 2.1 terrawatt RL fusion reactor. The ability to provide molecularly stable transport for ship components and human crew over light-years of space gives Weyland explorers, scientists and planetary engineers access to regions never before imagined. ICC-certified and compliant, our newest flagship model has a payload capacity of up to 9 megatonnes and a redesigned airframe and features a medical bay, lab facilities, and over a dozen HES-compatible chambers.

9Hypersleep Chamber BBBTechnology ProductsMedical Devices

Hypersleep Chamber
The only product on the market capable of suspending the body's autonomic functions while maintaining the health of each individual cell during stasis. A Holographic display communicates with ship's mainframe to monitor metabolic conditions to suspend cell function. The hypersleep chambers can be programmed to initiate, maintain and terminate hypersleep stasis of human crew depending on length of mission and percent FTL travel. Zero-loss lithium ion batteries in a tertiary backup system support the chamber's function for up to 100 years in case of emergency.

10IM 80BBBTechnology ProductsElectronics

IM 80
The IM 80, an Igneous/Metamorphic Rock Processor, is designed to improve the quality of life on off-world colonies with adverse indigenous terrain. Through high-powered mechanical disturbance and the introduction of proprietary enzymes, the IM 80 transforms inhospitable terra into fertile soil for use in agriculture and bio-replication. It can be operated by a 4-person crew of Weyland planetary engineers or trained civilian contractors. A prototype is currently undergoing practical trials on KOI-854.01 outside the heavy ore mining colony of Luther City.

12MEDiCBBBTechnology ProductsMedical Devices

Mobile External Diagnostics Center. Critical tool for any publicly occupied space or civilian home environment. MEDiCs provide peace of mind like never before. Simply open the wall-mounted case and remove the diagnostic vest. Once placed over the patient, MEDiC will determine the extent of all external damage, analyze blood samples, if present, and return results within minutes. Emergency personnel responding can immediately access the patient's information from MEDiC and relay it to nearby clinical facilities. MEDiCs can be administered by any adult citizen and have saved millions of lives.

13Parameter Uplink Spectagraph BBBTechnology ProductsElectronics

Parameter Uplink Spectagraph
This next-generation device, used by Weyland geologists and engineers, surveyed unknown planetary terrain in the pre-terraforming process. An omni-directional laser live-mapped 3D topography and sent the detailed scanned images to the viewing platform. A hyper-conducting spherical shell allowed smooth, self-propelled flight in any atmosphere. Polymer film bio-sensors could detect airborne toxins and life forms down to 500 nanometers.

14Pauling MedPod 720i BBBTechnology ProductsMedical Devices

Pauling MedPod 720i
This year, Weyland Industries introduced the FDA-approved MedPod 720i - our most advanced unit to date - which can diagnose, treat and perform a range of surgical procedures with ultra-fine laser incisions guided by 3D anatomical scanning. Procedures include everything from diagnosis and treatment of infection through concentrated antibiotic injections, basic wound repair, appendectomy, laparoscopic ablation and Cesarean section. At present, a dozen units have been manufactured and deployed in the field by Weyland Industries for practical testing.

15Power Loader BBBApparelBody Armor

Power Loader
Since introduction, the power loader has improved workplace safety by 300% in off-world applications. Its low alloy steel exoskeleton is designed to withstand maximum compression stress, keeping the driver safe from external blows. Hydraulically stabilized legs give 3 tons of load lifting ability.
