Above is the M3GOBS observatory module, a popular choice where civilian traffic is considerable.
|M3 modules are used to
transport a variety of passengers and cargo. These
modules can be fitted to satisfy demanding transport
conditions from alternative life support sections to
Modules are simple, yet functional, and can be assembled into a wide variety of configurations, virtually limited only by imposed stresses of configuration.
Each end of the module employs an airlock fitted with the standard J456 docking system for use with likewise fitted modules, ships, stations and drive sections. All M3 modules have a standard 40LU body length and 10LU body width excluding special equipment appendages.
Standard M3 control I/O supports the following inter-module communications protocols: Joshua (default), L78, SAM9, and XOP. Optional additional protocols such as OMCP, IMCL, and 3Mutt are also available.
Above is a typical non-bulk dry cargo module. Cargo module configurations include:
Personnel modules can be custom built or can be ordered from our extensive selection of prefabricated designs.
N3 node shown without walls. Units are available from 0 to 5 walls in any arrangement. For easy adaptation, walls may be added/removed from the inside by qualified personnel.
|N3 nodes are used to add
multilevel support to stations and outposts. Using the
J456 docking standard, each node supports up to six nodes
horizontally and vertically; or a maximum of four M3
modules in the horizontal plane, and two nodes in the
Nodes may be fitted with illumination and gravitational generators and temperature control, but do not regenerate atmosphere.
All N3 nodes:
Above a D7 command ship approaches Outpost 41.
|M3 modules also make
excellent stations and outposts. When combined with N3
nodes multilevel arrays can be built which can add
integrity to the overall structure.
All M3 modules:
