MASC-Assisted Laser

MASC-Assisted Laser employs advanced space compression to extend the effective range of laser-based communications. It generates a nanoscopic corridor that can safely penetrate large stellar bodies that may be in the path of the transmission, and allows communications to be made a many thousands of times at the speed of light. Transmissions of this type can only be projected effectively up to 20 LY, but within this range, these communications are nigh instantaneous.

While communications lasers are difficult to detect and intercept, MASC-enhanced communications systems may generate minor signatures that can be picked up on by distortion or Vector Wave Sensors in a short range.
