Drivesat Comm Array
This massive comm array provides rapid instellar communications. The array consists of constellations of small transmitters that transmit and receive messages through space at faster than light speeds, enabling communications with a range of 50 light years. The signals travel at a rate of 5 light years per hour. Because of the need for a steady signal, the ship must remain stationary to transmit and recieve messages. If the ship moves while its drivesat array is transmitting or receiving, the ship’s commmunication officer must make a Computer Use check (DC 30) to avoid losing the signal.
Only mediumweight, heavy and superheavy ships can be equipped with a drivesat comm array.
