Niomu Iun (Vacuum Suit)

:!: The following article is currently NOT APPROVED for in-character usage.

The Niomu Iun (vacuum suit) is used by the Poku Saeruo Degonjo to protect a Poku'vonai from the rigors of space or hazardous environments.

About the Niomu Iun

The suit has two uses:

For EVA the wearer must have a Nor Sou attached. In an emergency the Nor Sou can be used to provide life support and power for two persons by connecting both to it. This of course does reduce the remaining operating time by half.

When worn in a vehicle the Niomu Iun is connected to the vehicles environmental system. Any craft being used with a Niomu Iun, is required to have a Nor Sou stored aboard it in the unlikely event of crashing or the environmental system failing.

There are two helmets, the only functional difference is that the Model II does not have lights.

Appearance

The Niomu Iun is form fitting, but allows enough space for the fur to be comfortable.

The standard suit exterior is light gray with reflective strips at the connections of the gloves and boots. A strip also runs down the arms and legs and back. Custom color schemes do exist normally to indicate a Ruoka or Jael. The tape can be replaced with LED strips to enhance the visibility.

There are connection ports that provide power and life support. They are located on both sides just above the hip joint They can be connected to a vehicle or the Nor Sou.

A woven fabric belt is attached through loops at the waist. This is used to attach gear for use during EVA tasks.

The boots are equipped with Heim Force Generators in the soles. This allows the wearer to cling to the surface they are standing upon. The field is only effective when in contact as it is extremely localized.

Suit

The fabric of the outer layer contains a thin layer of woven (light armor) mesh to provide some protection from micro-meteors. The suit also an thin inner layer filled with a polymer that solidifies when exposed to oxygen. This serves as a seal-sealing feature for minor punctures to the suit.

Nor Sou (Life Unit)

The Niomu Iun uses a backpack that supplies power, life support and communications for the suit wearer. The backpack connects to the suit at junctions on both sides just above the hip joint. Only one connection is required the other is for redundancy. It is also to share a Life Unit in the event that a fellow Poku'vonai's is damaged.
