The VAM Enhanced Sensor Pallet is the successor to the previously used TD Enhanced Sensor Pallet widely used through Solas Tempus vessels and facilities. It is coupled with a intelligent ECC array processing unit which controls an entire array of the enhanced sensor pallets processing raw information before sending it on to a primary computer system.

Upgraded Capabilities

Each pallet unit has a number of advancements over previous models:

  • Enhanced Temporal Displacement Tracking
Capable of a 37.9% increased displacement recognition, tracking, and pattern matching.
  • Sequenced Transphasic Signature Recognition
Sensor elements within an array can be cross-linked and sequenced to provide recognition of transphasic signatures with variable subspace depth and orientation.
  • Projected Subspace Active Depth Scanning
Can scan through the local subspace field through a multi-element active scan phase from one pallet element to another with increase subspace arc. Allows sensors to determine the depth of the local subspace field and how subspace layers are oriented at different levels.
  • Passive Subspace Topographical Scanning
Examines passive readings from the interaction between subspace layers to determine local subspace topography passively.
  • VAM Passive Scan Elements
Receive and process signals from VAM sensor elements in real time.
  • Passive Enhanced Anomaly Tracking and Identification
Using multimodal algorithms sensor elements can be sequenced to detect and track subspace anomalies with a 97.89% increase in tracking, pattern matching, and identification.

Enhanced Detection and Tracking

One of the primary upgrades of this sensor system is that it has an increased vessel detection and tracking capability, particularly of candidates for potential cloaked vessels. While it still cannot detect a cloaked vessel, it is an upgrade which potentially can flag locations of possible conventionally cloaked vessels. Testing is ongoing, this upgraded has the potential to eventually allow for accurate detection of cloaked vessels -- though this has not yet been achieved.

In addition the system is designed to provide accurate tracking of temporal and subspace anomalies even those which are otherwise beyond conventional detection. Testing of a pallet element within the Schatten Star System showed faster detection, tracking, and tracking range of subspace anomalies.

Enhanced Processing

Each pallet element is equipped with an isolinear and bioneural processing core. These cores are the first stage signal processing which the network of pallet elements feed into the array ECC core for coordination. The ECC core provides intelligent signal processing to feed directly into a facilities main computer. The sensors provide too much data for a computer core to process in real time, so the first stage processing does initial pattern matching and organization of data while the second stage ECC further processes the data to provide a central core with meaningful and actionable information.

The ECC in the 2nd stage coordinates the first stage processing based on the needs determined by the central core and operations officer or MASI. This multi-stage processing allows the sensors to have a 123.89% total processing efficiency during normal operations. Raw sensor data is still available from the each stage should it be required.


The system automatically recalibrates itself on a per-array basis at the 2nd stage ECC processors. The processors will use active emitters and known stellar phenomena to automatically calibrate themselves over time, flagging potential problems for the operations officer.
