Gravimetric Drive

Gravimetric drives are basically continuum distortion drives used for slower-than-light travel.

Gravimetric drives…

  • are projected from shield-like panels or large hull surfaces like CDD/CFS
  • do not need rocket nozzles
  • require energy but no fuel
  • can be used for any STL speed
  • are subject to Anti-FTL fields
  • like CDD drives, produce no inertia
  • ideal for use during landing and launching with no risk to people or equipment

Admin Note

I would like to see these drives phased out over the next two years by replacing them with CDD/CFS and/or other drive systems like ion, plasma, etc.
