Usonium

Usonium is a self repairing material made by the USO. It is similar to Yamataium in properties, but less heavy and effective for protection.

History

Usonium was created in YE 39 by the USO. It was developed as an attempt to produce a medium weight armor for general use that could also be exported.

Properties

Usonium is composed out of hexagonal flakes of graphene embedded into a nickel-titanium alloy that hardens when impacted, heated or exposed to energy weapons, and returns to its original shape after deformation or a puncture. Usonium is highly resistant to kinetic, heat and energy weapons, but is vulnerable to cutting implements, which can seperate off parts of the armor before “regeneration”, or return to original shape, can occur.

Production

While Graphene is a material which is known by most civilizations in the information age, the alloy used in Usonium is a closely guarded secret of the USO, and their only materials technology.
