Ares Arms is happy to introduce the Ares Supersquirt™, The advantage model of the Ares Squirt™. New developments in dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) containtment now allow the gel reservoir to be contained in removable clips. Taking full advantage of this innovation, the SuperSquirt™ also uses an extended chemical-round clip that has twice the number of available shots as the available Squirt. The Ares SuperSquirt™ uses the number of available shots as the original Squirt.
Three years ago, Ares Arms introduced the Squirt™. Our technologists thought it was time for an improvement - The Ares Cascade™! We've increased range and accuracy, and greatly expanded the reservoir. In addition, the Cascade™ has a selectable nozzle that lets the user choose between a long-range stream or a wide-angle, area-effect spray. The Cascade™ is powered by a replaceable compressed-gas canister that attaches to the stock of the weapon.
Used by the UCAS military and various corporate security forces, the ELD-AR™ (Encapsulated Liquid Delivery-Assault Rifle) assault rifle has been a standard training weapon for years. The ELD-AR's compressed-gas canister provides an almost silent and recoil-free shot. Even under burst-fire conditions, the ELD-AR™ is quieter than an SMG equipped with sound suppression. A variety of colored ammo is available for determining firing accuracy. If your security forces need a weapon for practice drills or other needs, the ELD-AR™ is the weapon for you!
In conjuction with Ares Arms, BacteriTech™ has modified the Williams Technologies netgun to allow it to capture astral targets. The BacteriTech™ FAB-NG™ (Fat Bacteria Netgun) fires a net comprised of interconnected hollow polymer tubes filled with FAB-1 (Fat Bacteria, Strain 1). The FAB-NG™ has a dual trigger mechanism. Pulling the first trigger primes the net by forcing the FAB-1 from its holding vat into the net in firing position; pulling the second trigger fires the net. Once primed, each net stays active for six to eight hours. Each net can only be used once. As with Williams Technologies netgun, the FAB-NG™ is available in two sizes, one for human-sized or smaller assailants and a larger version for large orks and trolls. The large version can fire both sizes of FAB-NG™ nets.
Ares Security International now produces portable security lighting devices in all spectrums, from low-wattage flashlights to active infrared floodlights. All lights come with long-life lithium batteries.
Ares Security International has developed maglock technology into a fine art. The Type I Maglock offers you better protection than the strongest padlock, at close to a padlock's price. The Type II is tougher, but not top-level security: perfect for a corporate facility's common areas. The Type III is ideal for higher-security areas- or, for areas protected by closed-circuit simsense, try the type IV. All Ares Security International maglocks are available at different levels of complexity. All maglocks above the Type I come with a lithium backup power supply good for one year: the Type I comes with a five-year battery. As with the original maglock, a PANICBUTTON™ bookup option is available for all locks except Type I.
Ares Security International, in conjunction with Fuchi Cyber, is happy to introduce the Integrated Control Center (ICC). The ICC provides the ultimate command, control and communication capability for mid- to large-sized security systems. The ICC consists of three individual operator stations and a command console. Operator Station 1 (OS1) provides central control for all of a system's surveillance and control devices, CCTV, CCT, CCSS, and security drones. In the basic model, this station can handle up to twelve cyberlinks and three drones. Operator Station 2 (OS2) is the heart of the ICC, containing the main CPU and computer controls. OS2 provides both cyberterminal and cyberdeck links to the main CPU, equivalent to a Fuchi Cyber-4; it also acts as an I/O node to the protected area's matrix. Operator Station 3 (OS3) integrates magical security into a well-designed security system. Located at OS3 are six hook-ups to a security-systems fiber-optic observation network, as well as the latest in six-position motorized prism switches. The command console is the ICC's control center, allowing the security commander to maintain radio communication with officers throughout the protected area as well as with the three operator stations through audio links and built-in vidscreens. Upgrades are available.
Since the introduction of DMSO in 2052, many customers have expressed an interest in a chemical compound designed to stop unauthorized personnel without permanently harming them. Ares Arms Chemical Division answers the call with gamma-scopolamine. This neuromuscular blocking agent prevents the uptake of acetylcholine, thereby rendering a target unable to move. Derived from the natural toxin found in Atropa Belladonna, commonly known as nightshade, gamma-scopolamine gives you the edge you need against intruders.
Building a secure site from the ground up? How about building protection against astral intruders right into the walls? Design engineers from Ares Security International, in conjunction with magical security engineers from BacteriTech, are available for subcontracted design and construction of astral protection at your site. Depending on the size and budget of the site, these engineers can design and install a Bacterial Containment Grid (BCG). All the site's exterior walls, doors and windows are double-layered, with FAB-1 pressurized release units attached.
The most popular version of the tilt-wing TR-55 series is the first TR-55T Traveler. The TR-55T is specifically designed to transport short-distance commuters. Sales of the traveler have surpassed those of its competition ever since this craft's debut, because it gives more passengers a smoother ride to their destinations in less time. The tail fan, vital to this aircraft's renowned stability, creates a smooth, even lift and descent, as well as smoothing the critical transition from vertical to horizontal movement. The wider body of the TR-55T allows for an extra five passengers per flight.
The "President's Edition" has twin bucket seats in the separated cockpit for the pilots and deluxe leather lounge seats for nine passengers. A communications suite, rigger control gear and a wet bar are just some of the options available.
This version of the TR-55 tilt-wing offers all the benefits of the TR-55T, plus an extra-rugged design that makes it perfectly suited for paramilitary and military forces. The TR-55C adds an armored skin, at the marginal loss of fuel economy and flight performance. The ventral hatch provides the means for lifting cargo or personnel from a hovering position. The standard TR-55C comes with a winch capable of lifting up to one metric ton. Military organizations or those with special needs may choose a rear cargo ramp/hatch at an additional charge. This option reduces the overall cargo capacity by 25 percent, but provides added flexibility for loading and unloading.
BacteriTech™ is happy to release "fat bacteria", strain 1 (FAB-1)to the general security market. This rugged, long-lived, genetically engineered bacteria has proven effective as an astral containment device. An enclosed space filled with FAB-1 traps an astral being as easily as does an ivy-covered wall. However, FAB-1 has the advantages of being mobile, relatively inconspicuous and easily deployable. FAB-1 is usually stored in large, pressurized "coolant/feeding vats" and released into the area when needed.
Also available from BacteriTech™ is FAB-Ultraviolet (FAB-UV). FAB-UV has a unique property; it glows when subjected to ultraviolet light. To trap astral intruders using FAB-UV. lightly flood an area that you suspect an astral traveler has entered. Then illuminate the area with ultraviolet light. As the astral intruder moves through the flooded area, he or she displaces the glowing FAB-UV. casting a “shadow" that reveals the intruder’s location.
No perimeter security system would be complete without the addition of the Ares Sentinel P drone series. Based on the stationary Sentinel, the P version is semi-mobile, performing a fixed patrol circuit around sensitive zones. Available in both indoor and outdoor models, the Sentinel P is ready to follow any path set down for it by the use of our revolutionary EMMA™ (ElectroMagnetic Movement and Articulation) system. Just mount the monorail-style track where you want the drone to patrol and let it do the rest.
Ever wondered how to integrate a security magician into a well-designed security system without having to put him or her on the front line? Ares Security International has solved the problem of mixing magic and technology with the Ares Fiber-Optic Observation Network. Based on the ever-popular fiber-viewers found on military-grade combat vehicles, the Fiber-Optic Observation Network allows a magician to see his or her desired target without exposing himself to that target. We accomplished this feat by running machine-pulled, fiber-optic cables from the magician's control console to a precision-ground optical lens. The magician looks through specially designed goggles into the fiber, and he or she can “see" out the lens without the aid of electronics. A magician only needs to see his or her target to cast a spell; the Fiber-Optic Observation Network extends the magician’s "line of sight” much farther than his or her physical eyes. An optical monitor is also available.
Security-system design engineers at CerebroTech™ are proud to present closed-circuit simsense (CCSS). The latest in technical security countermeasures, CCSS allows a trained security rigger to "drive” a security system just as he or she would a vehicle. CCSS-equipped security devices let a security rigger feel a door being opened, a fence being climbed, or a window being broken. CCSS also hooks the rigger into the security system's drones and other surveillance and control devices, which act as his or her eyes and ears throughout the protected area. For a small additional fee, the engineers at CerebroTech™ will modify any existing security device to handle CCSS. To operate a CCSS system, a security rigger simply needs to install a CCSS decoder in his or her remote-control deck or security station and modify all security devices to handle CCSS protocols.
The Rigger Protocol Emulation Utility is a program that translates a deck’s software inputs and outputs into a rigged system's hardware language. This utility allows a decker to emulate any of the various protocols used by riggers and their systems and drones. Available at varying levels of sophistication: each higher-rated module includes all the protocols in the lesser levels.
Ever wondered if a decker could access a rigged system? He can do it with the System-Control Rig Emulator (SCRE) from Ares Security International! This device is a must for every security-system design engineer responsible for system diagnostics. The external module attaches between a cyberdeck and the rigged security system or remote-control deck; the internal module can be installed right inside a cyberdeck. The SCRE acts as the interface between the deck and rigged system or remote control deck by imitating the machine language of the standard system control rig. Note that a rigger protocol emulation utility is required to use the SCRE.
The Rigger Decryption Module is yet another diagnostic tool used by security riggers. This module contains sophisticated cryptographic routines programmed into its firmware that allow security riggers to test the encryption on their rigged security systems and drones. The external version of this module is mounted in-line between the rigger's system control rig dataport and the system undergoing diagnostics. Remote systems require the internal model, which must be installed inside the remote control deck. The higher-rated the module, the more protocols are programmed into its firmware, up to a maximum rating of 10.
